    Another quick update as haven't put anything on here for a while 😊

    Got a full Apex bolt in cage fitted at the weekend and finished wiring in a few gauges.

    Since my last update its had some new e36 m3 drilled and grooved discs with some Carbone Lorraine pads up front which stop the car a treat!!

    Also fitted some adjustable camber and toe arms as well as an s14 diff

    Tein super street coilvers are another addition since last posting. They handle great and are quite soft and comfortable compared to the cheap things it was on before. However, they are really high, even on the lowest setting!

    Went to the sxoc trackday at Llandow recently and it held up pretty well! The Westlake tyres and new brakes exceeded my expectations by miles!

    Bucket seats are next on the list 😁

    Thats all for now...

    Really like that! Rust must've been bad on the original shell!

    Pink is awesome too!

    Quick update on the rebuild...

    Head has been skimmed and ready to be put back together

    Turbo rebuilt with a 360 thrust bearing and new seals etc. Got some braided oil and water lines to go on as well.

    Cleaned up the manifold and cam covers

    And picked up a new steering wheel for it yesterday 😊

    Thanks to Pointz who has and will continue to get mentions throughout this build for all the continued work on it

    Update to keep Pointz happy. Even though he did most of the work again

    Rocket bunny kit is coming off.

    So new wheels purchased, new front vented wings and rear over fenders from Byba kits! At first we thought the fitment was terrible as nothing would line up, but it only took a little playing with to get them to line up really well. Very happy with the quality of stuff from BYBA and will probably be buying my front bumper from them soon as well (either bn or type x).

    P.s I will be PLASTIDIPPING the car in a graphite grey just to piss Pointz and many other people off

    New front bumper and a bit of Plastidip since last update.

    Need to finish the dip and fit the sideskirts and then I can start on track day prep for the upcoming Llandow trip

    I'm not sure whether to leave it Matte or put the gloss coat over the top

    Finally finished the plastidip before heading off to the Llandow sxoc track day.

    Also Pointz fabed up some seat rails for my bucket seats so i could install them as well.

    I didnt do much prep before putting the plastidip down and it shows already peeling in certain places as it didnt stick very well to the graffiti paint already on the car (who'd have thought?!).

    The front bumper needs a bit of adjustment to sit closer to the bonnet as well.

    Overall the car performed pretty well at llandow, the old road tyres were the only thing that really let it down.
