    So bin a bit busy since I last updated this! Where to start? I am a poor man now I know that much.

    As mentioned in a previous post, I got the rocker cover refreshed by the excellent Spooner Restorations. Adding a carbon plug cover too. And swapped out the filter for a AEM unit, although tempted to change this as it seems to have lost a bit of power.

    20161127_152414. 20161118_201351_2.

    Changed the wheels as well, I loved the blue AVS 6 but made the car look a bit like a track slag, so went for a set of Work Emotion 11R. 17x8 ET47 with some 225/45/17 Bridgestone RE070 rubber. Much prefer the look, less in your face!

    20170127_133157. 20170129_102424. 20170129_102436. 20170129_102431.

    The suspension was getting a bit tired, so replaced the following:
    Hardrace Droplinks all round
    Hardrace Rear LCA's
    Skunk2 Rear Camber Arms
    Progress Rear anti roll bar kit

    20170126_165058.

    So at the moment the car has loads of amazing parts on, but they need setting up properly. The rear wheels have started to catch a bit and everything just feels a little unbalanced, so hunting now for someone that can tie it all together. The Tein coilovers that came with it are getting a little tired to, so not sure whether to update them while I am at it.

    While I was spending I thought it was wise to invest in a decent stereo, it came with a god awful kedwood double din. So repaced with a nice double din screen with DAB and loads of other functions. Only had chance to set it up quickly, will be setting up probably in next week or so now that my speakers have arrived. Just fronts for now, but got an amp to add in too.

    20170129_144558. 20170206_124519. 20170206_124539. 20170206_124547.


    So thats it for now, just got to get everything set up and working. Still got plans to do more, but that hinges on what I do about coilovers. Even if funds don't allow anything extra for it for this year, then I got a well rounded reliable car thats hopefully going to get some interest at some shows! :Smile:
    Thanks for reading. :Smile:

    Thanks mate, :Smile:

    Got a carbon spark plug cover too, must have put the wrong pic up. It has just had the suspension set up properly by a local specialist, so driving well too.

    Next up is body work, and then a decent detailing session ready for the shows.

    More power mods planned, but there is no rush for that. Just want to enjoy it. :Smile:

    Getting a private plate soon as transfer goes through, and taking it into body shop by the end of the month to get the arches sorted. It looks like it will be ready for Mimms :Smile:
