Re: Revhead's Mota


Thanks Jalal, it's only a scratch compared to the mods on yours emoticon

Ultimately I aim to get it fitted with a CAI, Piggy-Back ECU and have it lifted once it is out of lease in about 12 mths.
Maybe if I am lucky I might be able to find some coil-overs which will let me lift & lower it as I please emoticon

Re: Revhead's Mota


Kev,

 I have always wondered what mods you have actually done to the exy, as you have been a part of most discussions and group buys. Well, now I know.

 Talk about a hidden beast, WOW !!!!

 Looks excellent mate, keep up the work. Form the looks of it, you can't decide whether to follow Jalal's path or mine.

As they say in the old classics mate, you can't lift it and have your Hitech too. emoticon

Hey Brett,

I don't have a particular path to be followed, if one wants to do that however, they must be prepared for huge expenses LOL emoticon

Thanks for your appreciation Brett.

I actually decided quite a while ago to keep it suitable for 4wd so I will be going for a lift and not get low profile wheels similar to you and Matt, but as you might guess from my forum name I am partial to a bit of grunt so I'll be taking the power mod path from Jalal once the lease runs out in 12 mths.

Best from both camps as I see it emoticon

Finally added sunstrip on windscreen to the list of mods (with a pic). emoticon
This stops the sun coming through the little gap between the roof and the top of the rearview mirror which has annoyed me immensely.

Thanks Lance emoticon

Kev,
 Your mods keep on growing mate. Great stuff. I am very interested in the 10 LED 4wd indicator. Keep us posted, with a possible DIY guide when completed. emoticon
