    So over the last few month I have been stockpiling parts ready for the new build.

    So far I have some JDM spec folding mirrors but I have rebuilt them to include the heating element




    Also bought some JDM spec front wings as the red ones are rusty and I want to move the side indicator to the US spec side marker





    I also bought a tubular manifold too




    Went upper-class and bought a Tomei 2-way




    More to come as I have just sold the rotas!

    That is nice, but looks a complex colour so will be expensive!

    So I started stripping the blue Nissan the other day and removed some of the usable exterior parts.

    So here are the blue mirrors fitted, these will be stripped so the cases can be used for the folding JDM mirrors I have

    Ceramic coating is probably best

    Any recommended companies? I have tried Zircotec and they quoted 168 for Primary Black™; 239 for Performance White™ or 275 for any from Performance Colours™ range. Excluding VAT

    Piston rings and head gasket purchased to fix the engine from the red car so I can recoup some of my investment!
