Special Projects 101: Car Makeover 2010 (Update 2)

disc brakes car project

(The biggest change under my special car makeover project to date for better safety and improved driving – rear disc brakes for a car that initially came with drum brakes)

Phase 1 – change of worn-out front and back suspension components, repair of cabin light (which has been short-circuiting my fuses), door lock malfunction and repair of the dents on 2 doors (eyesore for many months).

Parts changed and the cost to date:-

2 rear Monroe shock absorbers
2 tie rod end
2 ball joint cover
Brake shoe rear
Suspension rod bush
Trim pillar
Lower arm bush
Lower arm bush iron
Room lamp
Left side centre lock gun
Repair and respray on 2 doors
Change of cracked interior plastics
Replacement of missing rim centre cover

Total cost = RM1,498.00

Phase 2 – change of seat covers

Parts changed and the cost to date:-

Coolmax seat covers – the old one lasted for a long time but in serious tear and wear condition

Total cost = RM450.00

project ice car player mp3

(200++ and more songs at a breeze! The new detachable MP3 player)

Phase 3 – change to an MP3 player

Parts changed and the cost to date:-

Sony MP3 player (CDX-GT670US) with remote control but I used back the same old speakers – I paid too much for it, it will be a waste if I replace it now whilst it is still in good working order

Total cost = RM650.00

Phase 4 – yet to commence (change to new rims)

Phase 5 – upgrade of the braking system to a better one

Parts changed and the cost to date:-

Rear axle with attached brake set
Double brake pump servo
Master brake pump
Rear brake pads
