The Icarus Project (4EFTE)



  • @Calum WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!? My goodness that sounds like proper shite. Sorry to hear (pun intended) about this. What's happening to it then? You taken it apart or anything?



  • @Minia Spun a bearing this morning. Long time coming, it's had a SAVAGE oil leak for the last two years, I am surprised it held up this long.

    Unfortunately, due to my other post, all projects are off at the moment. But it will be engine out, chassis apart, and a full nut and bolt rebuild on the entire car. Back on the road 2030.

    That's the plan.

    2030? Well, best of luck with all your future endeavours. Was a pleasure knowing you 😂



  • @Minia I'm just being realistic. It's my only form of transport, I've had it five years and clocked a whopping 2k miles in it. It's spent more time on axle stands than it has on the road in my ownership.



  • Awwww...here we go again.

    Big plans for this overhaul which is why I am in no rush to finish it. It takes as long as it takes.

    Plans are a full nut and bolt rebuild. Engine is coming out. Chassis is getting stripped, repainted and only the bare essentials are going back in.



  • Aye lad, get after it. Quick little chassis. Can keep up with the B-series!



  • This also is why I've been in active on here for like a month, bought myself an old E36 325i and spent 90% of my time underneath it or adding parts, I thought bikes were expensive to mod, but the beamer certainly takes the ticket haha



  • Nice read, shame about the ending 😞

    Having come from cars, bikes are refreshingly cheap for parts from what I’ve seen!



  • @d3cme Doesn't help that it's an import only vehicle. A lot of the parts are specific to this variant which is nice, but makes parts hard to find.



  • Yeah friends have had import cars and you definitely need to have a lot of love for them to deal with the cost/rarity of parts!

    My last car was an M3 and there was horrendous M tax on parts for that!
