    missed a stage and didn't take pics of the third colour but you get the idea after
    they were lacquered, thought i'd go satin for a change

    slow progress but it's getting there now :)

    grabbed my sparco seat back out the 13.5 and refitted it
    dug out a set of 5mm spacers and fitted the GTR's
    changed a couple of breather hoses that were kinked
    fitted my D1 spec oil catch tank

    i bought some nice stainless bonnet pins today so gotta fit them tomorrow
    then it's off to RS Fabrications to have my old custom 3" stainless exhaust
    fitted for more ground clearance, just needs the downpipe tweaking as it was
    on a CA before, then next week it's being aligned :)

    just paint after that :smokin:

    spent a nerve wrecking afternoon drilling big holes in 500 quids worth of carbon bonnet
    to fit my bonnet pins :D

    they're slightly different style to the normal ones so had to drill 2 holes then open them
    right out with a cone cutter :eek:

    good news is my part is done so away it goes for the exhaust to be fitted now :)

    BIG thanks to shane at RS Fabrications, my custom 3" stainless exhaust system off my old red S13 is now on, a section of the downpipe had to be cut out, the flange spun round then a new bend welded in , top job as always and ready for alignment tomorrow :)

    one from stuy mac on here along with a DW clutch hose which has been
    fitted and the cars also had an oil change with silkolene pro S :)
