Recapitulation of year 2011

Well, let’s recap what had hit me during 2011. The biggest achievement of the year was my Master degree graduation which was held in England and did visit to Europe during the trip to my convocation. Pretty nice trip I have to say although most of my project cars’ fund had been spent during this trip. Thus there are not much updates for my project cars. Sigh… The only person who benefit from this is my fiancĂ©e who finally able to get to Paris, France and get herself some handbags. Besides that, went to Singapore for another holiday vacation. Not a very long trip but was a pretty nice.

Project Kancil: Handling and Exterior Upgrade

Finally got some time to post updates of my project Kancil. At last I got myself a set of APM Performax Sport Spring which I decided to install them to my car early of the year. Based on the specification provided by APM, this Performax Sport Spring is able to lower the car height by 3cm. Thus, let's see how much can my car be lowered after I have install it.

However, among these few months; bad thing happen to my car as well. The front bumper's left bracket had broken and this leads to the screw fell off and the only solution that I currently applied is using a cable tie to hold the front bumper to my car chassis. Unfortunately, this is not a good solution whereby the front bumper is starting to fall off again. Therefore, there are only 2 good alternative solutions which I can apply to permanently solve this problem. One is to change the entire bumper and the other is to use some sort of bumper lock to hold the bumper and fender. The second option is definitely my choice because this is way cheaper compare to change the entire bumper which will cost about RM400-450.
