    Thought I'd post a little update on progress, some new parts, and boxes ticked on the ever growing list..

    IMG_5234.JPG

    Carbon front grilles on!

    Have recently fitted a KTR Induction kit (which I must add has a very addictive sound)
    All powerflex polybushes ordered, have a toyosport manifold waiting to go on, along with cup shocks and Eibach springs!

    *Edit, nearly forgot - also awaiting some ds2500 pads, so will fit them as and when they arrive!

    Next -
    Renaultsport Front splitter
    Personal plate
    Cup wheels

    And much to some people's disgust...
    I've decided carbon diamonds are a must!

    Considering this was just bought as a more sensible / practical daily..
    Well, things changed direction a little!

    Those carbon grilles look sweet! I've gotta get mine out and spray them they're looking really sorry for themselves...

    Carbon diamonds will look mean! Love your car Shorty it's a work of art!

    Cheers :smile: happy with how it's coming along, just seem to find more and more things I want to do as I work through my list haha

    And do it, these ones were worse for wear I just rubbed them right down with wet and dry until they had a really good smooth matt finish then had them re lacquered, they've come up like new!

    Haven’t updated for a while, thought so thought I’d update progress on where it’s at..

    Have had manifold and poly bushes fitted now

    black OZ superleggeras on their way - so currently looking for tyres, thinking AD08R or NS2R!

    Personal plate on

    The one to bring hate..
    carbon style diamonds!!

    Next - fit new front discs (Brembo HC) unless someone can suggest another fast road/ track alternative
    And have ds2500 to fit

    Remap end of jan at Engine Dynamics

    Suspension (cup shocks and eibach springs) to be fitted

    And now ready to buy a RenaultSport front splitter

    Hopefully be ready for a few track days early next year!

    Oh and Urgently needs a clean ha

    Brembo HC discs will be more than good enough! Get the coated discs if you can, part number ends in .11 rather than .10!

    How are the polybushes feeling?

    Cheers, I’ll have a look to see if I can get that part number!
    Definitely make everything feel tighter up front, either I’ve quickly got used to the extra vibration or it dies down fast, barely notice it now!

    Carbon grills look amazing where did you get them from?

    Also what does the plate stand for?
    I have a few ADD plates
