Nice build man.

Gonna get your sys at Right Price? Or have you got your exhaust on it now? Maybe try and get some 2nd hand headers, and do it all at once if you haven't yet. Makes a huge difference.. :D

I'm actually getting the system done at the same place that did my front struts, he's a little guy and seems appreciative of work.

Anywho, today I replaced my powersteering pump with a remanufactured unit as the old one was dumping fluid at an alarming rate to the point that I left it dry yesterday and muscled it around... the new one has a nice steel pulley and everything :D

Hey all, been a while... not much has changed, the car is still running okay. I'm still looking for some bumpers and a new bonnet, I had to do the front brakes as the left hand calliper slides got seized.

Planning on getting my rims soon, I only wish I had've had more hours at work late last year because I've fallen behind :oops:

I purchased myself a parts car today, same colour (peac0ck) the bonnet/roof/boot have some severe hail damage... swapped the bonnets this afternoon (I'd prefer a hail damaged bonnet to an accident damaged one) unfortunately I wasn't able to get it sitting right until it would latch, so I had to zip tie it shut and I'll have another crack tommorow when I have another set of hands or two.

As the parts car is a fairmont, its got the coloured bars so they'll go on sometime soon.
Next week I'm getting my mags then I'll see what can be done about the haildamage to the bonnet while I look for ANOTHER new bonnet. As well as getting the various scratches etc fixed with a good professional buff.

I'm comfortable with the height at the front... the back on the other hand :mrgreen:
The rims are 18x8 Advanti Volt, black with machined face riding on some 235/40/18 Kuhmos.

I just tried to start it and there was no resistance in the barrel and then there was blue smoke from under the bonnet. Hopefully its not dead :/
