    So the weekend started out pretty good. I got a mig welder to help me finish the rest of the bits on the car.

    [​IMG]

    Came in handy first day. Modified the shifter so that it doesnt hit the center console.

    [​IMG]

    For some reason the supra ones have weird angles and the gear stick just ended up in shit places. So a few cuts and tacks later I had it positioned exactly where I wanted and welded up

    [​IMG]

    Much better! And I get to keep my cup holder! Win!

    [​IMG]

    Then everything started going bad, but I think the worst was when I took the car for a quick blast and found that I lost a sideskirt along the way. Went back to look for it, traced the route about 5-6 times, checked fields, ditches... Nowhere to be found. So some pikey now has a BN sideskirt lying somewhere that he cant use. Great!

    But despite that shit experience, the car felt absolutely spot on! Think the boost was peaking at 1.1 bar with no sign of fuel cut.

    Quick update. After an absolutely shit day at work yesterday I got a text message that made everything better. Steve, the tyre guy came across my sideskirt in a field on the way over to my house!!

    The 215 needed a blaster but only a couple times, the 225 literally went straight on with air. No fire required.

    Only because the tyre is solid though, a softer side wall tyre would have gone on with no issues.

    Been called away for work last week, but managed to get a few more things done before I went away.

    Carefully rolled the arches....with a jack handle. Still need to sort the bumper mount point as it still rubs.

    [​IMG]

    And took her for a blast! Pretty happy with the end result. Paint next
