your work is great on your car, so dont take this in a bad way, but goldfish's was a work of art. He hand laid two angled fiberglass cutouts for his defi bf amber gauges, custom molded in a boost controller, a turbo timer, and a very nice deck, and finished it off by wrapping it in black leather. It looked perfect like it was suppose to be there. He also did alot more interior work, exterior work, engine work, etc. He disappeared awhile back. I wonder what happened to him.

actually, i remember. He bought a cts-v and realized that newer cars arent as hard to take care of.

unless someone has pictures saved somewhere (gary?) then no. He use to have a website, but its been down for awhile.

damn, I'm really into custom interior work, so long as it looks like it belongs there. If i had the money, my whole dash, seats, and headliner would get wrapped in black leather with red stitching.

I wrote:Time for a (photo)update. I haven't done much to the car lately, except being annoyed by the left hand side rear brake. It still squeeks after 5 mins driving, sounds very ghetto.. :x If I pull the handbrake very slightly during driving, the squeek stops only to return a little bit later. Bugger. I've adjusted the handbrake so many times now it's not funny anymore. Everytime it sounds ok for a few minutes, then the squeek's back. The brake doesn't get hot by this, still operates ok too. I'm sick of it though, the car needs to run smooth. After this Sunday's Japanese car festival (big meet, pics will follow) and before the UK Jap Auto Extravanganza in July I'll attend to I'll try to get the dust shields off (might beat them too hard while fitting the ST205 rear brakes and thus messed up some moving parts?). If that doesn't work I'll replace all parts, maybe up to the hub knuckles and bearings.. The squeek HAS to go away.


(Temporary?) Fixed! :D [touch wood]

I put the car on a 2 post lift last week so I could drive it in first gear with the wheels off the ground. This way we could watch and listen to the wheel close-up. I almost shat my pants when I saw the disc was wobbling! :shock: The movement was radial and clearly visible.. WTF! You could also hear the tick/squeek.. :(

Phonevid: http://www.turbocelica.nl/images/techarticles/centerbore/discwobble.3gp [play with Quicktime]

After getting the brake off and spinning the hub only in gear, the squeek was gone. My previous thought of the handbrake shoes rubbing against the dustshield was ruled out..

I already knew the ST205 and ST185 use different center bores, but I never expected such a huge effect caused by 0.9mm OD - ID difference.

To fill the gap between hub and disc, I had to fabricate some kind of strip with a thickness of 0.45mm:

Image

Today I had 2 stainless strips made up. Length 17cm (ST185 hub OD = 54.1mm, circumference = π * diameter) and 1cm wide. They only had 0.5mm thick sheets so I've opted for that, confident I could get that in also and tightening the disc around the hub properly.

Image

As usual I destroyed the first one. The strip stuck out too much and I thought I could push it in further. I couldn't. :lol: I reduced the width of the 2nd strip to 7mm, which did fit.

Check out the gap between the ST185 hub and the ST205 disc:

Image

With the strip fitted:

After a nice cruise this evening I still haven't heared the squeek anymore. I hope the problem's fixed with the strip fitted! I'll put the car on the lift to check if the disc is still wobbling although I don't think it is. The right hand side brake never squeeked but I'll have a new 7mm strip made up for that side just in case..

[/happy] :D

very pretty parts Meurz :)

nice choice on the HKS rad cap, it looks pretty on Vadar with just a stock rad :wink:

do you notice any difference with the c-one braces in the rear?
better turn-in & stability?

darthripley; I haven't driven the car (hard) yet, so I don't know yet. I suspect the swaybar to cause the biggest difference.

Denver_whiteST185; It should fit if you're talking about a donut. A full size spare won't fit. I can't check it now though, my donut is stored away. The little bags are manuals, washers and bolts and some stickers. Almost all C-One products come with such a enveloppe afaik.
