    Yet in seven years I never had any issue with my R33 after I repaired it and found it worked really well. Different set up maybe. Funny enough some of the Renaults are bringing this back in there new range of Clios.

    Nissan Cedric GT

    Ok, so been away from all my cars for a bit, but hopefully should be back to getting things done. Had a spare few hours yesterday so thought I'd do a few little bits to the old girl!

    I know opinion is varied on these but fitted a voltage stabiliser to see if it would stop my hunting for revs when I pull up to lights and generally improve idle



    So now got extra earths to the alternator, slam panel and bulk head



    Hasn't resolved the hunting for revs issue, but has made idle a lot stronger, also made my stereo a lot clearer too.

    Also managed to get round to fitting my blue foam to my filter at long last and outed the green



    Only thing I'm finding is it's impossible to get all the blues to match, but I think that's something I'm going to have to live with

    Also decided to sort out my horrible yellow and dull interior lights

    Before



    After



    Just made my own using some smd boards I had laying around

    Ripped out the stock bulbs



    Soldered in the new boards



    Stuck them in position with the hot glue gun



    And hey presto



    Then decided to attack my carbon canister too, first bit of space I've managed to free up so far, think that'll be perfect now for my greddy catch can



    All gone



    Have now created a different issue though, not sure if it's removing the catch can or not, but now in normal mode it's revving up to 6.5/7k revs before changing gear instead of its usual 3.5/4K? Any ideas of why would be much appreciated haha
