Updates there will be. The "to do"list is ever shrinking and ever growing at the same rate. But not tonight, the urge to rest wins right now. [Smile]


For me, the urge to rest wins nearly every time [Laughing]

Here's a few of the historic mods I made prior to starting this thread. First off the strut brace:

This is what it looked like in the bay, after an initial clean-up in there. As you can see, the brace has seen better days..


Sand sand sand and you'll eventually get bare metal!


Three coats of primer


Spraying commenced. Not the best of weather to have done it [Shocked]


Done [thumleft]


Not a bad finish at all. I might got it powder coated in the future, depending how it holds up in the engine bay

The HKS EVC was mounted in the ashtray area and didn't look pretty, so I knocked up a little mounting plate



Primed


Three coats of matt black enamel paint


Installed

The Aquamist water/meth injection kit in the boot was looking a bit sorry for itself



Canister tray out, sanded, primed and sprayed in matt black (had a big can [Wink] )


Canister etc cleaned up, cleaned out and popped back in. Much cleaner

The gear gaiter was old, tatty and dirty. As you'll see in this photo which shows the car when I bought it [Shocked]



One new short shifter gaiter from Rhon later and it's on to the old frame. I took several hours over this, as it had to be perfect. A normal person might do it in one to two hour though of course [thumleft]


Back in, along with a shiny new Greddy gear knob [Very Happy]

The HKS turbo timer was mounted on the underside of the steering wheel, so it constantly got knocked by my leg [Brick wall] The solution was to mount it in the leg vent, which luckily is an almost perfect fit. Bar a bit of work with a scalpel.


The matts, wheel etc etc have changed long since then [Wink]

Nice updates mate, as said it's the little things that make all the difference. Glad you got rid of the chequer plate mats.

Strange you had a revision 1 steering wheel on there too [scratch]

Lower power consumption, so maybe a little bit more power for the wheels? [Wink]

What lamps can use use as a straight swap for the stock units, which are a nice bright and clean white?

Hmmm, it's all a bit odd isn't it :k

Mats, I hate them. I'd have none, like the driver's side, but you can't trust passengers to have clean feet. Maybe a shoes off rule needs enforcing, like in the house [Wink]
