Ok update time :-)

Been waiting for this all week and finally the time came to meet up with Carbon Demon (https://www.facebook.com/carbon.demon?fref=ts) and get some decals on this bad boy. I found the stripe design on the net and sent him a pic and he made it up from scratch.

I also wanted to try and hide the ugly a** reverse camera so got him to put a stripe underneath it (kind of like a shadow) and it works perfectly, can't really tell its there anymore. The roof was an obvious choice :-)

As always - pics :-)

Looks very good Phil. Even your wheels look like the ones you had on the BF. :)

I am sure this will be the love off your life. (maybe) :D

Update time!

Now that the car is run in (nearly on 1900km) it was time to swap out the stock lower engine mount for the decent E-Focus one I ordered from the states. It was a relatively easy job, the only pain the a** bit was the support bracket being in the way and trying to get that off as it was like a jig saw puzzle. A little persuasion from a crow bar and all good.

Putting it back together took all of 10 minutes, overall the process was about 45 minutes. We went for a hoon after and wow! it makes such a difference in the dry, the car hardly axle tramps at all and I really dumped it into second to see what it would do and it just kept powering on. The wet is still pretty bad so i guess its just no hard launches in the rain. The gears feel a bit tighter too which is nice.

Not a bad mod all up, $115 delivered from the states and $30 for my mech to throw it in :-) As always lots of pics, took the advantage of getting acquainted with the underside of the car while I was there, my mech was very impressed with how tidy it all was.

Very good Job Phil and nice pics too.

I was VERY impressed with the beast Friday night too.

Don't wish to be a wet blanket but, did you ONLY buy 1 or 2 mounts? because if it DOES break or whatever, you would only get the standard one to put in and your car would be off the road for a few days to a week? Just a thought :D

Thanks mate, yeah just got the one mount, its the lower one which causes the tramping, i've still got the stock one so heaven forbid it did break I could always put that back in till I got another from the states
