I see you have lpg in there too? also whats that down on the drivers side of the car with the three pipes coming out of it, is that an abs pump? and have you moved your isc to near where the oil dipstick is there?


It's straight gas. Yes that's an ABS pump, still working on seting it up properly. The ISC was moved as there is no provision for it to be bolted onto the gas research throttle body...

I'm going to get spotlights for them, the indicator holes will have a ram air induction setup. trans cooler on the other side.
I also need to mesh the front bar. I had a full width frame/ mount made up to fit the bar rather than hack the fiberglass support.

did you trim the bumper so it didnt protrude so far forward?

Those mags are sick as. Where did you get them from and how much?


Tireplus in berwick ordered them for me. They will make them in any offset, width, size and dish depth that you want (you can get them from 18's to 24's ;)). Mine are 18x8 and set me back just over $3000 for the rims, and and extra $700 for tyres. Really wasn't in my budget at first (kinda still isn't), but when i saw them i fell in love, and the runoffthemill range of wheels just wouldn't cut it.

Yeah we trimmed plastic off the back until the lip around the top sat flush with the headlights. I did a photoshop with spotties and really didn't like them, will be interesting to see what you come up with tho. Have you got any other pics from different angles??

Well the deadline is 25th of October. There is a e-series club cruise/camp on that weekend and i've made a promise to have it done by then (gives me insentive to hurry up aswell). I've planned out the progress lately and so far i've kept to it. This saturday we will be repriming any little spots on the car in need of it, and sunday will be spent on the final sanding on the car while my mate finishes up on the bonnet. Hopefully if i stick to the plan, the car will be painted in two weeks "fingers crossed"

When i positioned my bumper the way i wanted it to sit under the grill, the wheel arches would be about a cm off. I never remedied this as i was halfway through making it before i aborted the project. Hope that's what your talking about??

We got some more work done over the weekend. We primed up all extra bits such as the kit, spoiler, door handles etc. We also gave the car body another quick thin coat of primer in all the sections that colour was seeping through. This whole week is going to be dedicated to the final sanding stages, today i spent a full 7 hours sanding, didn't even stop to eat that whole time :P.

Anyways here's the most recent progress pics...
