Stealth Body mounts via ebay... needed modification since it just wont work with the Cube body if I followed the instructions.. I guess theyre build for sedans.20141021_220328_zpsewy57xhw.jpg

Fits and sits much nicer

More Exterior mods coming soon.. I like to get the exterior done before I even contemplate changing anything under the hood.

In recent months I bought a pair of front OEM springs from a wrecked cube because I was experiencing severe LOUD noises from the drivers side strut/springs.

Brand new the strut mount, new springs and shocks would cost over $1000 just for the same original height etc...

The pair I bought was $100 all up. I only replaced the drivers side and I havent had any issues since June! YAY!

long while since last update..

based on what I can think of from the looks of that last pic I have done the following:

JDM Plates- generic content for just $199.. ordered within 2 weeks of their release... fk annual fees for custom content! 

-3 new tires and alignment

-engine and transmission from a nissan micra 2009 model - 99% straight swap!

-car was 99% certain wound back so since both trans and motor were cheap and low kms, i changed both.

-black rear bumper

-black front bumper from later model cube

- DVD head unit with rear view cam

- relocated twin yankee airhorn from engine bay to the roof racks

-JDM front door weathershields ordered via Thailand

-Thai DM car bra

-DIY ANGRY JEEP Grill mod to finish off the Jeep grill hack

-blacked headlight surrounds

Still sitting in the garage...

-Rear white Cube Rider skirts 

-Cube sideskirts... need to make them about 15cm longer to suit my cube3.

I DID have a full fiberglass set of neoclassic fenders which I had for over a yr.. but then my head gasket issues began and when I sold it, that pretty much paid for the micra transmission and motor. 

Still so much to do! big wish list! Wannna get lower and faster lol!

head gasket was leaking exhaust fumes into my coolant. 

was very small leak over a long period of time, which caused coolant to continually spill out my overflow.

most people would just continue to check and refill coolant, but I only drive to and from work like 10 min trips...

I figured I didnt need to refill my coolant if I placed a hose into my radiator overflow and literally blew back the coolant into the radiator. saved much cash on coolant doing that!

the pic was the C02 test I had repeatedly done on the radiator.. which the first few times turned up negative.. likely because the car was cold before driving to the mechanics. 

the occasion of the last test, I drove from work straight to the mechanics. the car was hot by the time the test was redone.. which was good enough for a faint reading of carbon monoxide in my coolant. 3 months of blowing my coolant back into the radiator and much frustration finally came to an end.. seriously all tests and inspections by multiple mechanics said they couldnt find any issue.

the test liquid changed colour only slightly.. but was enough for the mechanic to tell me to sell the car.

start of the angry jeep mod.

used up the last bit if fiberglass I had spare.

expanding foam was good to sort out the shape, but since I was tight on cash and out of fiberglass, I decided its cheaper to use metal reinforced body filler to sculpt out the eyebrow

this was during xmas/new year holidays.

I carved out the foam bit by bit and laid the bodyfiller in place.

much sanding...

so so ugly.. dust from sanding got everywhere

tax time last yr.. perfect time to pay for the swap.

on the cube3 odo - 125000kms

micra motor - 24888kms

couldnt hope for better numbers.. just drop the 1 on the odo to get an accurate indication of KMS
