    much better

    car went to drift Matsuri and did some skids and liked the front bumper and possibly the turbo oil seals

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then went to the first three sisters drift day and killed the turbo and manifold lol

    [​IMG]

    so now have a t28r to go on but no time to do it.

    bricks and clear bumper lights look good though

    Well alittle update......

    Killed another turbo at 3 sisters so i looked into possible reasons why so did a compression test as i was told it could be down to possible breathing issues.

    Test revealed this gutted number 2 seems to possible have suffered ringland failure

    So ive gone and bought another redtop and T25 will have the broken one rebuilt.

    Id bought a front bumper and rear lights before hand though.

    Did a bit of work on the frontend put bricks on gtr grill and bumper looks alot better and also put new rear lights on.

    I think that looks better before, those old lights look pretty bad with a flash on them. Never noticed before.

    Keep it up man :)
