Easily one of the best looking ELs that I've seen in a while

Thanks mate.
Still got to get some paint and attack that exterior trim to neaten it up a bit.

I'm in the process of doing same bumper conversion to mine but am using the fairmont bonnet, can only hope that it turns out as good as yours!

Been mucking around over the last month or two with interior colours.
Decided to go a black and red themed interior. I reckon it has come up great.
I was getting so sick of the two tone grey.
I also installed rear electric windows which is pretty easy.

will put up some more pics later

I am also currently installing a GRA system to replace the OMVL system that i had.
Nearly finished. Be good to get it done finally its been sitting in my room for 6 months :lol:

The old mixer and throttle body next to the GRA one. TB's are pretty much the same size (OEM one a little more oval tho) but old mixer was 40mm at smallest point. GRA is 70mm ID.
Image
Lots of pieces to put on. Its taken a while to figure out what goes where :roll: Image

Most of its on now. Ive had to get some extra pipes and fittings and modify some of the brackets but its getting there.
Post some more pics of the finished product hopefully tomorrow night :)

The Gas Research TB and converter is now all installed (not yet running tho).
Looks pretty good and just running a pod for now.
Still got to finish tuning it semi-right. Was having some issues with idle but have since been talking to one of the recommended installers and have some tips to get passed that problem now so hopefully not long and she'll all be running again :)

I got my side skirts from Phat Custom kits...and then learned a bit about them.
Like you just said in another thread...bullet dodged for you but i didnt find out until after.
One side fitted ok but the other was two short and had to be modified. I also saw last night that there is a bit starting to crack :evil:
And the rear bit of the grill part of them is getting shocking stone chips. Most of the paint is gone in a patch.
Image
Worse on the other side.

Nah not getting a rear bar yet im getting a few items for my engine instead. Sick of it being stock :D

Thanks dude

Ive got a Snort kit on order. Should be here maybe the end of the week or next week.
Cant wait!!! Been wanting boost for so long now. Going to be a fun little project to do and a hell of a lot of fun to drive :twisted:
Getting one of Geoff's new Stage 3 kits.
Going to have all their new stuff they got
such as their Stage 6 manifold (ceramic coated), their new wastgate, blow-off valve, fuel reg
and their new ceramic ball bearing turbo they are releasing.
Its going to be run by a Perfect Power XMS4C ECU that they are now selling as well.
