    so car is back home brought it from lennys to mine on the recovery as its still not starting.




    home

    the workhorse and the toy!


    stiv from mdt called out for two hours and gave it a go has it down to the pump or afm or wiring in between so brought it up to him the next day, should be done wednesday im just mad to drive it. fitted the indicators too they look great in it. stivs sorting some of the niggily bits too.



    need two smaller profile tyres on the back as the arches were sitting on the wheels the coilovers locking collers are fairly seized and the front needs adjusting too. i might go 215 instead of 235 that are on now make the back wheels look less out.

    Irish roads really don't lend themselves to having proper low cars, even in the citys they are appalling let alone rural areas where they are unbelievably bad.

    its just not possible in ireland struggle. mine was so low at the front it was hitting cats eyes there was pieces of fibreglass flaying over my bonnet! the college i go to has loads of ramps and speedbumps and weve roads full of potholes. id love to have it on its arse trust me but our roads are shocking. bringing on the ferry over to jae i had the lowest car there and that was entertaining enough! the uras bumper is gone i fixed it a lot looked class on it but im after a dmax type 3 now. ive got a nismo precut vent and marking it out as we speak

    update time!
    got a nismo z tune vent off ebay very impressed with quality.

    got a free bonnet off a friend and cut it to fit. strange going at a bonnet with a grinder. zenki bonnets are very curved but got in on and done its primered now need small bits of filler. ill sort that then its getting wrapped.

    bought 18s off adrian walsh theyre works. dishes on the rears are fecked like need sanding theyve a layer of chrome plating on them thats coming off. the rears fit but the front wont clear the calipers and i can try a spacer to clear but i dont want to cut my extended wheel studs, always something! front are 9s rears are 10s.



    might sell on we will see.
