    So, fitted some china fans for now >_<. See how they hold up to the task. Seem to flow pretty well.

    Fabbed up the mount for the pas cooler

    And connected all that shit up.

    Not connected the oil cooler yet because I got a wrong size oil filter, and also because I cant be bothered to rush this job as the drift day is this saturday.

    Swapped the fancy teal wheel for my old trusty auction purchase from last year. Cant beat this wheel. The other one hardly has any dish and I always hit the wipers and indicators with my fingertips, also im too broke to get a spacer. Feels like home now.

    The car was supposed to be taken into paint on Sunday 3rd May, then it was pushed to 10th May, and now my hopes of having it painted for this weekend got shot down as its going in for paint this Sunday :( Oh well, guess im gonna rock the matte look this weekend and would need to give it a once over with sandpaper again before paint.

    Haha! I dont actually mind it at all, I find it pretty nice to use. Love that to downshift from 3rd to 2nd all you need to do is swipe your hand to the left. Same as using the handbrake with no drift button thing, Im just used to it.
