    Sweet, I thought the fronts were from SRB as previous post, but the rear overfenders looked a little shorter on the SRB website near the door than what you got, as ive got the same sill covers and spoiler as you see and want to keep them. Also have you done the fuel cap yet?

    theres 2 different types from srb, there is a short one and theres a full fender which covers the complete arch. i havent done the cap yet but im going to in the next couple of weeks, wont be too difficult, theres a fibreglass one supplied with the fenders but il just move the steel one.only thing youl need to do is move the catch out from the body a bit.

    me too nash, a bit excited and worried all at the same time, its a 6 hr drive to HD im hoping it doesnt go boom on the dyno lol. Jez put a base map on my ecu so itl drive with the 740s and z32, started first turn of the key, but cant give it any boost till its been properly mapped.

    keep watching your videos on you tube, if its as quick as yours seemed to be il be happy, a bit laggier than all the gt/gtx series but love how old skool jdm it is lol.

    I T P A S S E D ! ! ! ! !

    first drive in 6 months! to the MOT station and back, no issues, apart from the car running extremely rich due to the base map on it (i hope) felt good to be behind the wheel again tho.


    so decided id give it a polish, started off with 2000grit on the DA then G3 then G10 its really not my thing polishing, so i quickly got bored, bit the bonnet then called it a day.



    polished up






    just need to wait and get it mapped now, 6 hour drive to horsham with it running as rich as it is should be enjoyable on the pocket.

    Got the old car taxed and took it a run since the sun was out, good to get it out but the lack of boost puts a dampener on it , think that'll be the last i'm out till its away for mapping. i have noticed my exhaust is too high now after me making a few brackets for it and it touching everything under the car, il need to fix that next the knocking from it is driving me nuts.

    a drive up the lead hills is hard to beat.

    then got my turbo fitted properly, along with the down pipe and waste gate.

    After that we decided to have a look at the loom situation, on full right hand lock my tyres were rubbing the rubber grommet the loom runs through, as well as catching the loom at the top, even though i had cable tied it as far up and back as possible.

    ended up moving it to the side of the wing (Seen someone else had done it on here, looked like a great idea)

    the last pic with the hole for the arch loom, what way did you get it through? disconnect it all inside at the footwell or are there plugs under the fusebox etc?

    any tips/advice appreciated as I think i'll do this too as it looks a good solution!

    car looks great!

    cheers johnny, i cut the hole for the loom grommet to sit into and then cut around into the wheel arch, wasn't much just a slot big enough for the loom, pulled it round to my new hole and welded it back up, didn't disconnect anything, there was enough slack in the loom. now i have full right hand lock unlike before when the tyre rubbed.

    well after messing about blaming everything other than what the actual problem was, and a couple of threads on here later, this is the stage im at now



    valve stem seal were hard and very poor looking, but as i kept stripping i found that the oil control rings were stuck solid to the piston, and could easily see that oil had been passing them.

    next move is to take the engine to the machine shop and have it cleaned and the head skimmed, possibly have the block decked if required. not really sure after that though, the power im after can be had on a standard block any more and its not just the engine but the transmission needs upgrading, so im thinking of just cleaning it all and re-building using uprated bearings, valve springs and retainers, and possibly cams just to up the rpm a bit.

    not sure if it would be worth spending the money to use forged pistons and rods.........

    cheers mate, always good to hear a compliment!

    theres a few different ways to do them, i cut mine about 10mm above the swage line on the body, almost untill the external part of the arch is level with the inside (so its flat all the way if you know what i mean) welded the sections together and then test fitted the over fender cut the excess metal from the original arch so it was as close to the inside of the fender (to try and stop all the shit gathering against the metal bodywork) took it back off then sealed the metalwork before riveting the fenders on.

    wheels are 18x10 et15 25mm spacer on the back, 35 on the front

    i wasn't thinking about taking that much off! was only thinking of taking enough to clear and then making some fiber glass shit shields to stop stuff going up there! also thinking of using rivnuts and some nice stainless allan key headed bolts to fix them on!

    is that all round with 35mm spacers on front and omg i need some bigger wheels!!

    on my s13 i cut up to a height i thought would be enough, then it started scrubbing after it was all together, and those were blended in, it made it a rite pain in the arse to adjust, so i didnt want to go through that again, i guess it depends how low your going to run it.
