Re-Fresh ER34 - NPC 10" Organic Clutch Installed!

Another update on ER34 Re-Fresh!  Just sent my car yesterday to Camden new workshop located behind Gadong Shell Station to have the NPC Clutch replaced.  Remember the NPC clutch I bought back in May?  Yeap, yesterday I finally had the chance to send the car to the workshop thanks to Wong Workshop who took his sweet time to finishe my ER34.

The installation cost me $180 bucks and I also gave the ER34 a full general engine services.  After that I sent the car to air-con specialist to have the air-con pump checked.  Hopefully will get the car back by Tuesday next week so I can try the test the NPC Organic clutch!

The price $180 consists of 3 mechanic dropping down the gearbox and replacing the organic clutch

Boxster S Wheels Balancing and Alignment at AutoPro Tyre

My Porsche Boxster S is well over 4 years old and over 30,000km and never had its wheels align and balance from the first day it came out of the showroom.   Today I popped by at AutoPro Tyre at Gadong for proper alignment and wheels balancing.  It took around 30mins to have it checked and cost me around $50.00.  The dude who aligned my car is actually a trained, approved technician that also handle wheels alignment for Lamborghini and Ferrari.  You can rest assure your car is in good hand.

Although this shop belong to a friend of mine, it is actually the first time I had my car wheel checked by them.  I am actually quite happy with their qualities and services.  No doubt I will be going back there with my Nissan Skyline ER34!

Re-Fresh ER34 - Exterior Paint Completed!!!!

Finally my ER34 is back!!!!  After a long respray paint job,  it is finally back home in her own garage.  I am very happy with the fresh new paint job.  Everything is done right this time compare to the last respray back in 2003.  Only problem was to wait for freaking 5 months!!!!  No way I am going back to that workshop anymore.  I am truly disappointed of the sweet time they take to finish my car.  Enjoy these pictures first as I will do some photoshoot of my own very soon.  Now that the car is back, project RE-FRESH is nearing to completion!  Will update again very soon!

Home sweet home to the old and new family members!!!
