That is the first Micra of that shape that I've liked! EVER!
(That's a compliment, by the way)

Gaaahhhhh, K11 micra? Check. Massive weight reductions? Check. Lowered just right? Check. Understated, unassuming exterior? Check. Stripped race ready interior? Check.

This car is perfect :D

Sounds like you are playing some serious heavy metal there.

Most people I've shown your Micra to have said "Wow, that looks KEWL!", so you must have done something right :)

Wish I had my Micra for longer to have enjoyed it a bit more. They have realy grown on me since this thread started.

Did a few little jobs today,sealered the window trim to stop the rain gushing in where I've butchered the inner door & fitted perspex.Getting very damp in there...
& fitted the Fiesta repeater I modified with a third of an Iron Maiden CD that was a coaster indoors before it split
& went for another bit of successful mud bathing,I'll sort out the best pictures...

Went to the store garage today...& found my box of spare ratchet straps,a Laguna splitter,the retro petrol can,a roll of gutter mesh left over from the front bumper project & the drimel for a later project....& the "intercooler" (from a fridge)on the bonnet was dumped outside the garage door.Thank you very much,I'll nip out tomorrow if I get a spare half hour & fit a turbo to go with it ;)
Used the mesh to cover the passenger window in a banger racing stylee,does not show well in the pic but I'm gonna get more into this...
Been having the odd nose on E Bay for a roof rack.In 2 minds,I like the idea but don't want to kart to much heavy crap around with me after all the weight-watching.Anyway,the tyre has got some junk inside that was dumped in our bin area,cone,hose,childrens game..& the petrol can which has to be put inside the car at night night time as my manor is full of thieves.The "Scream" badge that used to be on my grill lasted 2 days when the car was left up the road.. :ooo Had to strap it on the tailgate as someone :doh has removed all the roof support bars for some reason.. :)

Couple of my fave pics so far from my last mud seeking expeditions.
Bit worried that it will wash off in the rain,so I might finish the job properly & give it a lacquer...with hairspray.If that don't work I'll brush it over with vaseline :ghey before the mud to help it stick :)

I've seen a few modified Micras, but this is by far the best. I love the weight loss program you have put it on. I don't think I have ever seen or heard of anyone lacquering over mud, I think that's brilliant!
