Re: My GTS 5 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 58
Think we got to little island a little after 2 o'clock, there was a lovely yellow corvette knocking about up there but not much else. Was considering hanging around for the one in Mahon so you wouldn't have to fly the mr2 flag on your own but would have been just hanging around for hours so decided to head home. Next time

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 58
another little update on this,excuse the crappy photos off my phone and crappy weather to match! Bought the wheels below from Peggyontherun, really happy with them, going to send them off for refurbishing and then change suspension sometime in the new year once they've stopped salting the roads

17" Staggered Rays Volk GTU's,

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 58
Thanks lads, not to everyone's taste but I'm happy with them, have the car heading the direction I want finally. Was considering a very light smoke on the windows as well, but don't want to drawing anymore attention to myself with the guards. What do ye think? I'd say it would make the car look a bit meaner once it's lowers as well....opinions always welcome

Massive thanks once again to infamous who played a big part in me getting these, you have been kc'd again! (you're officially in triple digits now, you must be doing something right! :laugh: )

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 58
let me just start by saying boredom is awful!

Decided to throw together a home made mount for my iPhone 3gs so I'd have the option of taking videos if I felt the need. Just bodged something together using the box the phone came in for now, plan to make up a nice snug mount to fit in the top section of the cd holder cubby thing between the driver and passenger seats. For now here's a quick test video and i will post the pics when I have the more permanent one made up. Vid quality isn't the best as its an oldphone but instead of forking out a few hundred euro for a GoPro camera this will do as it cost me nothing

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 58
haha won't be selling them just yet haven't fitted the springs yet, haven't had much time, absolutely killing me knowing they're just sitting in the box because I'm waiting to test fit the wheels with the springs before I send them of for re-furb hopefully next weekend, but I've said that every weekend since I got them

Wonder wat the shocks will b like wit them springs will they b loose I wonder that's the thing about standard shocks and lowered springs u could end up wit the spring lose inside the standard shock....

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 58
haha I'm sure you wouldn't be long testing them! following some advice from the lads on here I'll probably be uprating the shocks in the future but for now this will until do until the bank account looks a bit healthier I'll let ye know how the ride compares to standard once they're in

Did a little daytime test of the mount for the phone and quite happy with it. Looks like the GoPro will have to wait! Anyway, I'm pretty sure my driving doesn't deserve HD

Good idea...I'm running a blackvue in mine but the cockpit view is a nice touch.

Take a look at dealextreme for brackets loads to choose from.

....I recommend you get a fisheye lens for the eye phone as well for more coverage

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 58
cheers for the advice mate, I just wanted to see if I could make one for free because i was bored

Anyway here's what I came up with.....

here's the box and all little bits that come inside it...

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


You can see a little notch cut out of the inside of the box in the middle, you can ignore that, it was part of camera mount 1.0 :laugh:

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


then I just turned the middle box on its side and slid it into the bigger one

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


then I made a hole in the plastic holder that the phone originally sat in, just big enough so the camera lens wasn't obstructed

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


so I just sat it into the holder

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


then just slide the holder and phone into the space left in the box

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


You can see that you can press the button to start recording without any problems..

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


Handily you'll find that this set-up is a perfectly snug fit in the centre console!

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


and when your done recording your epicness it stows away perfectly, ready for the next time you feel like recording your mr2 adventures

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


here's a little vid of camera mount 2.0 in action that cost me precisely €0 :fatcat:
Angle is slightly too low in this one but thanks to the snug fit is is infinitely adjustable :laugh:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-qgDp2MjJ0&list=HL1360605675&feature=mh_lolz

I realise this isn't going to be very useful to a lot of ye but it passed a few minutes for me :silly:
