    Hahaa mycool you wish ;) at least I don't curb crawl and end up with square wheels.

    Thanks for the good feed back guy's. Haven't really done as much as I wanted over Xmas, but I made up a few pieces For the turrets and got them on, finshed the crash bar (not fitted) and sand blasted p/s reservoir.

    Slowly but surely getting there. Managed to mount my crash bar correctly and make the mounts for the intercooler and radiator.

    Removed and moderated the subframe so the steering rack sits 20mm forward. Also extended s14 arms 20mm [​IMG]

    Have japspeed steering arms, moog ball joints, poly bushed droplinks and powerflex poly bushes for front lower arms ready for putting all back together after being sprayed

    Really pleased with the colour. Gold goes well with it I think. [​IMG]

    Okay subframe, rack and diy mounts are in. Along with all arms and arb. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Gave the engine a lick of paint and Came to spray the rocker cover. Took the rocker off and found a crack in one of the cams. Lucky it was facing up. Didn't really want to touch the head but looks like I'm going tomei procams route. [​IMG]
