might be updating the engine bay look again. just waiting on a few shiny blue bits to come. so far so good..

Ideas/constrictive critisism is welcome on here as ive gone past the point of carying and fighting criticism...hence why previous forums i got banned for being a hero, time to step up the game and actually do something right, hopefully im doing things right. :) :roll:

xh rocker cover to be polished and this one to be sold.
fuel pressure regulator with a gauge...
tidy up wiring loom tuck it away where possible
(maybe hide relays...but not behind guard, maybe under the rad support where not visible....cover mount bolts with box and spray over top for a smooth finish)

hopefully il sell off some e series gear to buy some more e series gear and get car up to scratch. need to source out ED xr6 guard badges...then can safe to say successfully mocked up. (although no red moulds, not everyone knows that lol)

so far plans:
-Receive and fit fuel pressure reg with gauge
-Fit Sprint kit
-Fit bonnet buldge
-Lower the rear to king springs SSSL (currently front sits on SSSL monroe gt shocks & rear sits on standard springs monroe gt shocks)
-Respray back to colbolt blue (the paint is actually f**k and there is massively noticeable dints on this car...)
-Fit New wheels
------------

Dreamy mods? (something that i want but my wallet would never agree with me)
-Air Suspenssion all around engineered (got quoted close to $8.2-8.5k)
-Shaved door handles (door poppers) ($?????)

Not quite sure...it was its original tickford red...just sprayed paint stripper onto it and bam whole thing lifts up. Its brilliant but in terms of shine il use 600 and 1200 grit wet and dry sand paper then use some cutters and metal polish compound to give that shine thats exactly the same as on my current one.

The gray is what comes off with fine grit sand paper. Unless its uneven and very patchy then yeah its within the alloy itself unfortunately.
