Random Image – Highly Modified Engine

WOW check this out, this motor looks like something out of a scary movie. If I’m not correct this is a V8 of the Chevrolet type, you can also see the huge chromed up turbos on each side of the heads. I would really have liked to give you guys the power figures but I wasn’t able to find such info on this little monster.

Lil Dragon – Custom Bantam Bakkie

The original Ford Bantam launched in 1983, was based on the Ford Escort Mk III then replaced by the Bantam 2, with a Mazda 323 6th generation-based Ford Laser front end, with it later being  baptised Mazda Rustler.
Our feature this month was conceived as a white Bantam 2 in 2003 with major reworkings deep in Rodney’s  cerebellum! Together with wife Melanie, their new baby was adorned with some aftermarket accessories. “Show and Shine “events became their new playground. In 2006 it was decided a total makeover was necessary.

Thanks guys – Mag Addiction‏

Being on holiday for 3 weeks gave me some time to do things on my ride. While I was busy with the speaker pods, I decided that it was time to do something about my wheels. I had them for almost 3 years now and it was time to either replace them or to refurbish. Since I love this wheel so much I decided to refurbish them. I was thinking of a colour change but decided to only high polish the 3 inch lips. I handed them over to Mag …

Custom Speaker Pod Build

I always wanted fibreglass speaker pods in my car and so many friends offered to do the job. Not that I don’t mind, but I always wanted to do it myself. After some extensive research I decided to build pods for the front doors and rear parcel shelf. Remember, this was my first attempt…
1. I made my own speaker rings using 8mm MDF board that was also cut to shape to form the back of the pod.
2. I attached the speaker ring to the backing piece using the 12mm dowel and hot glue. The dowels were cut to give a required angle.
