    Also took the bonnet off ready to fit the second vent i've been meaning to fit for ages!

    Good time whilst the bonnet is off to make the cut-off switch pull brackets and cut the scuttle panel to fit around it. (these are now part of the regs for RDC etc)

    Needs welding all the way around, only tacked it in as ran out of mig wire...

    ARB bushes and alloy extinguisher lines

    Hadn't touched the car for a few days, been working on the back garden etc with all the nice weather then remembered I still had some poly front ARB link bushes on the shelf, whipped the wheels off again and swapped the bushes over, still got the bonnet off to do the second vent so that will be the next job.

    I also got most of the alloy extinguisher lines in, just need to cut down the end and fit the last couple nozzles and jobs a good'un.

    My race gloves turned up too! Decent quality, glad I spent a bit more on branded ones this season.

    Overdue an update! Done some welding to the inner wheel arch on the passenger side, finished up the cut offs, replaced a blowing wastegate gasket, fitted a turbo blanket plus more!

    I have started video logging my track bike and the s14 drift car so here's a walk around of it including the first start up in about 6 months!

    Please give it a like and subscribe as it helps with the sponsors etc. I need to improve for sure but this is quite a new thing to me. All comments and critics welcome

    So not car related but also made a few videos of my fireblade track bike, got my first bike track day booked for a few weekends time!

    Feel free to watch, like, criticise etc. I actually made this walk around video before the s14 one but I'm currently doing quite a few jobs on the bike whilst waiting for drift days to start properly again, probably have my next vlog which involves refitting the fork seals this weekend so keep an eye out:

    Thanks a lot, I still missed out a few bits but was already such a long video thought that was good enough lol.

    Haven't updated for a while but looks like there will be just one round of RDC at Three Sisters this year and I've entered! Got a few small jobs to do including fitting another battery and adjusting the battery box to fit and then cars due a little service, hopefully a fresh alignment and a wash..... As you can see its been sat for a day or two in this pic!
