My Helmet Collection


I'm a big fan of racing helmet design. They give an individual style and icon. So far manage to collect 2 helmets. One from Arai and the other from Shark.

Got a good deal for this Arai (Tetsuya Harada) helmet in Ipoh. Called up the owner and make the bookings on 2004 Christmas Eve and drove all the way up to Ipoh to get it the next following day (Christmas Day. Sound carzy but love the helmet too much...what to do? Got it for 450).

Shark helmet is somehow by accident won in ebay. did not realise that shipping charges from UK is really expensive. It cost more than the helmet but anyway I still love it coz it's a limited edition in the graphic. Helmet cost £32.00 and the shipping charges cost £36.50, total £68.50. Phew! I had a shock of my life!

Anyway, paid for it by bankers cheque through courier. Been very excited to received it within 2 weeks time. Waited and waited...after 2 weeks. No sign of it... been worried that it got lost or stolen in the custom clearence...damn!!!! There it goes, so decided to email to
Mat Turnham to check whether he can check with his post office on the postal receipt for the helmet. Replied, it was sent right after clearence of payment. It was sure an unfortunate year as Tsunami came about during the period. Shipment was being delayed. It took almost 2 months and lastly it arrived.

My Car to Conceptualize




This is my new car, a Perodua MyVi. A same design as Toyota Passo or Daihatsu Boon in Japan. This will be my next car to design and conceptualize. Got this car on 19th May 2006. After 3 days of driving, i've made a kick start on this car. Changed into 16" sport rims and Firenza High Performance Tyres (Japan) and Lowering Coil Springs (GAB, Japan). After 2 weeks, I've tinted all windows and rear glass with Gold tint and replace all 4 door visors to Passo visors.
In the same week, I've added an arm rest in the console area to give a little more space for storage of parking receipts and some small misc stuff.

At this moment, total expenditure:
Sport Rims 16" (SSW) + Tyres = 1680 (actual @ 2180 deduct trade in original)
Coil Springs (GAB) + Labour Charges = 530
Gold Tint = 250
Passo Visor = 120
Arm Rest = 49

Newly Added Mod:
Zenden Air Filter (Drop-in) = 120
Ultra Racing Strut Bar (used) = 90
Pivot Voltage Stablalizer & Grounding Cables (NIB) = FOC (present by a good friend)

The next item I'm gonna add is the rear spoiler as picture above. It cost about 280 comes with LED third brake lights but without painting.
