    New colour looks great.

    Them cheap wheels you bought are Kosei Racing Senekas I think, decent looking tbh.

    Thanks man, Yeah first few laps i wasnt feeling the setup after getting it aligned, however once i got back into the swing of things it felt amazing. Its really really solid and responsive now thankfully, A little bit more power would be perfect :) Considering it had been almost 3 months since id driven it, or even drifted it was good to get back into it, those 30minutes i had more fun than the previous 3 months haha.

    Thanks guys, Yeah i painted it looked at it, and hated it. The next day I started to like it. Its one that grows on you i think as alot of my mates still aint so keen. :)

    Ah good shout stav! Yeah looks like its them, either or there really heavy wheels!! :p lol Yeah they look not bad for the cash i think.

    I prefered the purple :( I've never seen the car in the flesh, but you could tell from the pictures the paint was starting to die a little bit though. The green's refreshing.

    Yeah man :( I only gave the car one coat of purple (3 cans in total) and the green I used 5 cans. So it got a few more coats.. After going through so many tyre walls, and having various off's here and there and hitting stuff.. the paint was getting destroyed :( so the green is really a bit of an improvement over the condition i think.

    Im in a bit of a pickle as of to what to do before Awesomefest, as Im not happy with the car on how it looks, I need to get the wheels/archs corrected.

    Im trying to get some 30mm over fenders / front wings sent over in time along with a new lip and rear bumper so i hope it happens. I have also been making my own rear over fenders but i wont have them ready in time..

    Looks much nicer in green, shame about the rear arches when they're not filled - get manlier skids wheels :D

    Lets have bumfun 1.6 battles if I ever actually make it to a Crail day again, the V8 crew have ostracised me since I started cutting hair.

    Loving it! What is the colour by the way? I'm really after something similar, a sort of teal/green shade.

    With your wheels, are you just running hub adapters? I cba to read through the thread :p

    As with most people - Iv been trying to get the car ready for this coming weekend. I had a list to get through so got to work from the weekend. Car went into Garage LSD to get the paint sorted out.

    While down, Dunkz swapped in my Goodrich lines and we bled the brakes again, I have a working hydro finally :D

    [​IMG]

    Went to do an oil change, and put in a new rocker gasket yesterday.. as mine was leaking, to find.. the bolts on the rocker werent really tight, the timing belt had about 3/4" of slack and its jumped. So.. got all that sorted yesterday and also my new leads decided to shit its self in the block. Old one will do for now.

    Then went to meet Thacko from Thackophotography to get some pics, this is just a crappy iPhone pic but yeh u get the idea.

    [​IMG]

    No more PCD convertors, shiney paint, engine running nice (considering) diff is pretty noisy.. so, gonna phone AA today as im expecting.. something to go soon, we'll see.
