    Well timing belt failure and poor machine work meant it never ran right, the plan is still to source another head and have it built back up to how it was. This time on ITB’s and a full Toda valvetrain to compliment the Toda cams.

    Not much going on, went and installed a DC2 air box, tidied up the interior wiring some more (had a few issues but finally figured it out thanks to some forum members). Spent god knows how long polishing my exhaust manifold just need a new rad and refurb the valve cover then that’s it right now...

    It works out a lot cheaper than buying new and looks mint!

    Yep, polished the solenoid and alternator by hand and zinc plated the hardware and casing on the alternator

    Same old same old, just saving for some tasty parts and maybe some bodywork but did get these PCI front camber arms the other day and oh my they are perfect

    I’ll be putting 215/45’s on though after they’re refurbed so will sit very close to the arch. Hope that helps.

    Tried my first set of 16” wheels on a few months back. Work RSZ negatives in 16x7 with a +42 offset (10mm spacer in front essentially making it +32) tyres were 205/45’s

    Have checked them out before, their products are easily the best out there from what people have said. May have to invest in some of their kits!

    Just to clarify, it was definitely the Hardrace inverted track rods causing the bumpsteer/toe change. Reverted to new OEM outer tie rods for now and feels much better. Apparently the hardrace tie rods should be used in conjunction with an extended ball joint ? Sounds stupid to me :rolleyes:

    Ahh I was afraid of that, I wasn’t sure what could’ve caused the bump steer since I replaced every component up front and had the rack apart but thanks for confirming what the issue is! Bump steer correction kit that causes more bumpsteer, great lol

    Today’s job... Headlight restoration :naughty: Headlights aren’t perfect (EK9’d by last owner and very poorly re sealed) BUT looking crystal clear again until I can afford proper 9 lights lol. I’ll let the before and after pictures do the talking... Peep the zinc coated hardware and bumper...
