MCO 2.0...
I decided to re wrap my Waja steering;
IMG_20210120_155608~2.jpg

I am not satisfied with the result as i am not skilled enough to make the area around the spoke perfect. I will use it while it last and next time will get pro to do it.

Done reinstall.
I should have put more glue at the left spoke.can see the material not sticking at the spoke.At least next time i know exactly what to do and where to do it.
BTW the gear lever is also new as old one broke at the stem. Was searching for quite some time until it pops up for sale in shopee. Its different from 1.6 as 1.8 got OD button on the lever.
IMG_20210120_205237.jpg

What ironic is that the original leather used to wrapped the steering also have wrinkle at the same spot the new one have....left of the bottom spoke.

What next?
Timing belt change + oil seal at the engine + valve cover, then i will diy the sump gasket.
Only after all that a fresh coat of paint will complete this car.

Now gatal tangan want to do the same for my BLM steering...If MCO extend ( most probably ) then there is a high chance this will happen.

That's a pretty chunky steering. Did you have to remove the old leather before putting on the new one? That's pretty damn good already!

And you're gonna do the timing belt DIY? WAhhhhh

I removed the old leather. It was already hard and deteriorating. Agree with u that it looks chunky but it feels the same to me.

DIY timing belt?
Nope..I did thought about it and almost bought the cam holder tool from AliExpress for less than RM300. That is until the oil seal at the engine output drive to gearbox starts to leak. The gearbox needs to be out of the car to fix this and i dont have sufficient tools + skills for this thus will send it to a workshop.
DIY oil sump gasket pun jadi lah..hahah.
Will post pic on that as i really wanted to see the oil squirter which spray oil under the piston? i read somewhere the engine has it, not sure proton version have it or not.

Not real leather. Felt very similar to Neo CPS steering material.

I love to do it again but like i mentioned earlier i still need to work on the finishing. Its real easy actually.

wah.... can I send my Wira SE steering wheel to you?... so you can practice more. hehehe...
No...No...i dont want to (scared to be exact ) to 'damage' your steering.
Wira steering should be a lot easier as it does not have tricky area like the waja steering button. I made a mistake there causing material shortage at the right spoke. Manage to get it right at the left spoke but too little glue pulak. The material they give is almost ngam2 so once you commit there is no turning back.

Trust me, its actually easy. Just need patience. I suggest getting a pair of very sharp scissor and a lighter. When you trim off excess material its best to tie back the loose thread so it does not get loose when u start to 'sulam' the material together. Use the lighter to burn the thread end. Should take less than 1/2 hr if you can handle the pain when you start to 'sulam' the joining thread as u need to pull hard.

BTW, if u want to choose the design try to avoid those with the tiny holes. These holse will collect/trap moisture mostly from our palm and accelerate wear and tear at the area.

This is an awesome job, nicely wrapped and stitched. Can imagine the labour needed. Are you in the upholstery business?
Nope...I am a regular guy whom work for regular monthly salary.
I studied electronic, previously worked as a banker, now i am in security. At times i wonder who am I actually....
All i know is anything related to cars or bikes or anything with fossil fuel engine such as chainsaw, grass trimmer, power sprayer, etc makes me feels lively.

Was bored last Friday and decided to change my daily ride front tire. It was using cheapo tire last time as the previous tire was damaged during a puncture and the shop did not have much choice.

I was considering either Maxxiss Diamond 3D or Corsa Sport rain as i have experienced both and they are great. The Maxxis provide good grip in dry and great grip in wet. Its very long lasting too.
The Corsa Sport rain provide great grip both in the wet and dry but not so long lasting.

So i removed the front rim and bring in ib my car. At the shop i ask what tire they had for 70/90 size and they feedback the 2 tires i mentioned above. I decided to go for Sport Rain and after the guy bring the tire he shared that they got one model on promo and i paused...same price as the Sport Rain but this tire model got better review (at least in dry ) compared to Sport Rain. I decided to go for the tire on promo. Here it is;
IMG_20210207_120744.jpg

Its a Pirelli. The grip is awsome, it just bite and bite. Softer compound so i hope it works well with my slightly firmer (recently serviced and purposedly made slightly firmer ) front fork.
IMG_20210207_120757.jpg

I doubt it will work as well as the Sport Rain or Diamond 3D in wet but when i can take turn in dry with super confidence, i dont mind slowing down in wet.

What next?
1.My waja oil sump gasket.
2.My grass trimmer aka mesin rumput clutch housin.

This is from Indonesia. Now itchy....very itchy...I kept on checking the rear tire....hahahha.

Riders will know this tire as it throws road debris to the rear rider following whoever in the front using this tire.

BTW, the shop also got Michelin slicks for superbike.

Means sticky rubbers, I have seen slicks on a track car at one of the tyre shop I go to. They were fitting at the front of the shop then drove to the rear for alignment. Reach there full of pebbles stuck to the tyres.......lol

Finally...my camshaft holder arrived from China. The U shape metal is for holding the camshaft, the long rod for locking the crankshaft (there is a slot at the crank and need to removed a plug on the engine block ), the short rod is for locking the flywheel (There is an opening where the gearbox meet the engine).
When i will try this tool? Thats another story.

BTW, the cordless drill (in the Bosch carry box) at the background is to be given away foc should i decided to buy a 20V cordless impact drill. Why? because 10.8V is just not enough for me, it does not have impact function, i dont have space to keep an impact drill and a cordless drill/screwdriver.

Eh...same here.very effective toilet cleaning tool...hihihi. i use the 3pcs drill brush set with the cordless.

I am aiming for Daewoo 20v at shopee. It will be used as home improvement tool and small diy project. If there is a shop can offer discount then count me in for the grp buy..it was listed online at 299. So far i cant find any shop in melaka selling such alternative brand, its either high end stuff or very low end stuff.

For car diy job i already have a Mr Mark air impact wrench which i believe is much more powerful than any cordless type.

yup..mine only have a small tank so repeated or non stop use of the impact wrench will require rest after a few use to allow air to be recharge in order to achive max impact force.

havent find the right shop?
DIY lah.....careful though as i crack the cylinder head on mine when tightening it causing air leak. Mine has blocks which is made using thin cast iron.

if branded then hardware shop that sells compressor should have it. if not try shopee, will be a tough search sometimes due to how seller named their product.

My comp head was bought online.

problem when buying online is risk of the part wont fit esp for alternative brand as most ad does not include measurement.
At times its hard to find parts online due to how the seller named their product.

If too many parts needs replacing then it might cost more than the compressor or can get a new cheap one. Then again u will know how to fix the comp in the future if u repair the current one.

starts at 1500 for Swan 2 piston electric motor driven comp with big tank. Will exceed 2000 if u opted for a Robin gasoline engine instead of electric motor which will allow the comp to operate where no electrical supply is available.

One piston recharged the air slower but for me if its coupled to a big tank like 50l, its good enough for me.
My tank is small (forget my tank capacity) like the one u get when buying RM200-300 air comp. U will lose sufficient impact power quickly and with one piston charging it, some pause/rest is needed between few multiple use.

it depens on your usage really. There is also the max air pressure. if i recalled correctly the air pressure valve can be change so u can holder higher air pressure but i am not sure on the saftey aspect.

Ah.... I checked the price for a new one for the version I have, it's about 380 only. Let's see how it goes. If the service is cheaper than that - I'll just do that. OTherwise this thing is scrap metal.

the valve and the meter on the top doesn't work and the air doesn't seem to open up
a stuck air valve thing. normally it will happen if the tank is not drained of fluid every now and then causing dirt/rust/gunk sticking at the valves.
Remove the fittings and get replacement. If u are lucky the gauge is still ok.
my comp have 2 outlet ( useless really when the tank is too small ) and one of them is broken like yours. already fixed but forget the cost. Should be well below RM100.
