    so busy with exams, work and dealing with my other "sponsored" car.

    i've resumed the project. my 2 liners are broken when my last mechanic mishandled it, no problems, just have to send it again to have it redone again, though i'd be poorer now!

    after a long crazy busy month, it's public holiday today, ruler's birthday, so i decided to take out the carburetor and analyse it myself. ive labeled the carburetors from A to D, to identify each individual carbs and not to mix the parts around.
    to my horror, theres so many dead insects lodged in between the carburetors and the rubber diaphragm inside the carburetors need replacing. so i decided to take out a piece of rubber diaphragm for parts sampling purposes. ive missed out assembling 2 small lil rubbers, i wonder where they go now...

    after months of idle and travel to europe, my car has been relocated to another mechanic, due to the mechanic's impatience of waiting for spare parts. it's just hard to gauge someones mood, one day they are giving the best of interests and suddenly it all dies out. so the car is sent to my usual volvo mechanic, where he had rebuilt a rolls royce silver ghost previously.

    my last mechanic has done nothing for me, not even sending my crankshaft to the shop to measure the clearance needed on the sleeves on my engine. it was just pretty much a temporary storage place for me and my car as i was away in europe for a month. though it was great to meet my friends in europe and have a taste in riding a honda s800. sadly most of my photos are gone due to damaged sd card. all i had was photos from my iphone!

    Kevin..
    Regarding ur corrupted photo files..
    Have u tried those recovery software?

    I've experienced that too..
    During the gumball3k..
    Snapped hundreds of photos and at the end of the event,
    bloody camera just formats everything without any warning..
    Truely shaken all the way back home as quick as possible search for solution

    recovery software didnt worked, because it was an internal hardware failure, diagnosed as a crack in the silicon wafer, so cant fix it! thats what the professional analysis was.

    i hope someone in malaysia could do that, cos theres no signal during powerup

    Man.. this is taking a long time to complete. You have :

    1. A lotta money. I wish I had that kinda budget to build my KE30 dream.
    2. A lotta patience. 4 mechs, 2 screw ups and you're still ok with this project!
    3. A pretty girlfriend. No comments.

    LOL

    im still waiting for my order of the cylinder head from canada. i bought this part from colin kennedy and took him months to deliver as he was busy with his own stuffs. the cylinder head costs me rm2000 (canadian dollars 620) and its being sent last month

    instead, this arrived by mail from korea, a dragon ball t-shirt from uniqlo, featuring goku trailing on the honda s600 convertible. bought for USD20 on ebay. one limited piece t-shirt
