  1. Hey Guys, Looks like I have missed quite a lot in this thread. It's been a while since my last post.Hope you guys are safe and sound and getting used to new normal.I have done quite a few repairs on my Car and thought of giving you short versions with Pics. Replaced Rear tyres- This was done last year, I was looking for same Nankang S20 tyres as my front However due to unavailability of stocks I settled with Kenda Vezda Set (225*45*18). Not as impressive as the Nankang tyres but gets the job done. Tyres Cost-46,000Rs Wheel balancing and alignment-1,700rs. An Engine oil leak was repaired- At first I thought this was from the Oil pan itself. However digging deeper the leak was actually from the Oil pressure plug.Since this needed to be addressed quickly I went ahead with a Local Pressure plug for just 450bucks. Needed some ground work to get this properly fixed though. Replaced Rear brake shoes- My rear brake shoes were on their way out.This was spotted at routine service. Mitsubishi part Num- 4600A028. Roamed around kandy to find the parts,After a few errand runs found the exact match with a Nissan Bluebird shoes set (Model-JFBK KN-1267). Took both Rear brake drums to a lathe shop and smoothen the inner surfaces before fitting the shoes. Brake shoes- 5,000Rs Lathe shop labour charge-1,000rs Fitting labour charge- 2,500rs Radiator Cap Essay was damaged and was replaced- Coolant was literally storming from the cap after about 3km run with AC on. As a temporary measure used Elephant Epoxy Adhesive to seal the leak. in the meantime ordered Cap-Assay- Radiator (Mitsubishi Part Num 1350A043) from Amayama for 10k including shipping. Arrived exactly after 2 weeks.Fitted and No more leaks. The old Cap Assay was in really bad shape and literally Cracks were visible inside. With the exception of the Tyre replacement all the other services were done at home by my trusted mechanic. Yeah I am lucky to have the luxury of having a home visiting mechanic. overall a Very good learning experience for me as well. Signing out. Drive safe guys.
  2. Congratulations mate. This was one of my choice of cars before I became a lancer lover. Still when I see one on the road my head turns. Enjoy the ride.
  3. Riling this up. Eagerly waiting to see a Mazda 6 thread..🙂
  4. I am currently running with 225x45R18. I cant afford to spend on new tyres as the cost will hit me with a blast. Yes that is actually one of the reasons. Also I seem to like the matte bronze finish on the wheels. I think they will get along nicely with the color. similar to this. you get the idea.
  5. Thanks @iRage for sharing. The link has some of the sickest wheels that I have seen on lancers. Also I noticed that in most cases rear fenders needed some work. However the wheel specs that I am considering has slight differences compared to what I have at the moment. So Yeah it's quite probable that those will fit in without any issues. Let's see, anyway I am going to dig deeper into this before I proceed.
  6. @trinity @Davy @Hyaenidae Question for you guys. As you may know I am currently running with stock Lancer GT wheels ( 18" x 7", 5x114mm with 46mm offset). I am seriously thinking about getting some new wheels for the car. I am currently in love with the following which is pretty Bad A*S looking to my eye (or perhaps something similar). Wheel specs= (18" x 7.5", 5x114.3 with +45mm Offset). Question is will these fit my car without any space problems or without any other issues?
  7. Thanks for the Heads-up Mate. I myself too keeping a close eye on those cylinders. Cause last time when I replaced the brake cylinder washers agent advised me to replace cylinders as well. They quoted 17k (per cylinder) at that point. well I did not have a deep pocket hence only replaced the washers. since then car has done close to 5000kms and recently I did my service. I closely monitored and there was no leaks. @Hyaenidae I remember you tagged me in aftermarket brake cylinders on Ebay. @trinity try using Ebay route. https://www.bremboparts.com/asiapacific/en/catalogue/hydraulic/A_12_397
  8. Been reading your blog since the beginning. The final result truly shows the passion of a true patrol head. Bravo Sir!!
  9. Oh I see. Then you probably know what was going through his kid brother's mind while he was driving. Yeah Poor guy..
  10. from the actual owner's perspective -Ok I put an Evo-x spolier and some other bits and pieces of modifications (May be a loud exhaust too) Now my dream is to fly because now I own an Evo X with over 200bhp.
  11. @sathyajithj99 @GK_007 @Ruslan @Gummybr , Thanks guys for your prompt responses. The details/tips you shared will indeed be helpful and I will be sure to post some pics later. Stay safe.Cheerz.
  12. Hello Guys. It's been a while since I updated my own thread. Need some Road tripping advice from my fellow Autolankans. We are planning to go Belihuloya via Nuwaraeliya- Hortanplains- Ohiya route. I am more specifically concerned about Hortan Plains-Ohiya route. Since my car being lowered and I am a bit paranoid of the thought that the Road condition might not be that good and fitting for the car. We will be taking another 2 lowered BMWs and a Honda civic. So yeah this is going to be an epic journey. Has anyone of you taken your vehicle via this route? Of course I am street-viewing and I was just wondering if you could kindly share your own experience with me. Regards.
  13. Nice,Waking up to see this. It looks like Toyota has nailed "The Design" Congratulations mate!!
  14. @trinity Just seeing this. So I removed the stabilizer links at my local mechanic and took a sample to locate the exact replacement.Unfortunately I do not remember which brand was it. I do have the old samples with me. But I guess you are too far away to collect them as I am pretty much based in kandy now. Happy to help you out further if required.
