I think the bulk of the little bolt on mods look pox as hell, but the fact you keep your car in the condition its in + work on it heaps yourself wins you much favour from me, so continue

Now the ECU has gotten used to them, it makes starting a lot easier. I mean, 80000volt to ~28k is a fair hike. I have heard that a few tuners say they drain power though? Don't know how, but I think they are good so far

Don't worry about what I say too much. I suppose the mods just aren't to my taste at all. I do have a lot of respect, as I say, for people that look after their gear & do the work themselves. So rock on much

I'm so glad you decided to get rid of the original rims, I think i'm still partly blinded by them.....

The car looks awsome now though, are you looking at cam, head work etc etc or just leaving standard?

Yeah the wheels were pretty horrible.

Will be camming it. I did have a set in it, but couldnt get it tuned for a while after (still hasn't been tuned and was over 8 months ago) so I took them out.
Problem is, when we moved, dad decided to throw them out so now I need to get another set.

Will eventually probably be doing an engine swap for an Atomic Built engine, or Supercharging the one that I have now

Ok, so updates......didn't realize it had been so long but i'll just do the main ones :shock:

You know how the B series seem to be known for a hanging headlining? Well, mine was like that too. But I couldn't be stuffed at getting a new one. Well, here's a before shot (was all around the edge front and back)

Image


And here's the after shot

Image


Want to know the magic cure?

Image


Next was just a general maintenance upgrade. The original battery was still in the vehicle (Motorcraft) and was getting a bit long in the tooth.....
So, I replaced it, and the terminals. Battery is a UHP Century

Image



Next was a visual update again.
I was sick of seeing the dull red calipers, so I decided to get a bit fancy with them,

The before

Image

The during

Image


Image


Image


Image


And the after

Image


Now, I did do front and rear, and both sides in SHOCKWAVE. And damn, it looks fantastic in the sun....


Now this next one happens to be the favourite since the last update. Took me near on all day, but was worth it,

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


It is the FG colour Sunburst, with "Asteroid Metallic Silver" on the coil cover. Shines rather nicely in the sun


Here she is running again,
Image



And then I got a bit carried away this week in photos of her,

Image

Image

Image



For an 8 year old car, she definately scrubs up well


And this was done today. I was getting sick of the USB cable just dangling, so I decided to do something about it,

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


And how she lights up at night,

I do like what you have done to your pride and joy, you are obviously very conscientious with looking after the car and of course, taking pics. Image

Thanks mate
Ever since I saw the first BA drive passed in '02, I knew that would be the car I get. Ever since then I have wanted one
And due to what happened to my previous car (unfortunately), my dream came true of owning this awesome car. Your day will come, just seems like it takes eternity :lol:

I love her to bits. Basically everything I earn gets put into her (not a lot at the moment unfortunately). But I have big plans for her
