    Managed to chip away at the list of jobs needed to get the red DC2 in for paint. - Front end panels/bumper/lights removed to assess front panel and inner wing condition, pleasantly surprised with no horrors to report. Very clean. - Corrosion around the rear vent cut out and replaced with...

    The EK9 shell has sold. I'm hoping to buy a complete example next year all being well, I just cant commit the time and expense that the Yellow shell needed. I have now ordered the following for the EG6s built B18C which means its edging ever closer to completion: - Brian Crower BC0013 Stage...

    Well.. excitement short lived with the EG6 with lots of faults finding their way through the paint after just 5 weeks. Gutted is an understatement. Rust appearing on the N/S/R arch, moisture coming through on the quarters and bubbling/rust/crazing appearing everywhere. Going back in soon to be...

    Despite my best efforts to do so, I missed the opportunity to take the EG6 to Mimms on sunday with a misfire just creeping in at 11;45pm Saturday night to dash my hopes. That said, we did only collect the car on Wednesday from paint and got this far with it by Saturday evening, so I'll take it...

    Another outing! Nearly two years since we’ve been back to Cadwell. Had a mad rush getting these three ready for the day, all performed superbly. DC2 is phenomenal at the minute. With an eyeballed alignment it managed a 1:41.8 in the afternoon. I say “it” because it definitely humours my...

    One day perhaps ;) White DC2 got some loving too. Hubs swapped, just some ATR discs to fit up front and throw some tyres on its new shoes

    Sourced some oem 96 wheels for the red dc2. Couldn’t resist popping them on and giving it a quick spray down while I was de-greasing the bay this evening. It looks a million times better just for being off the horrid gold wheels.

    EG6 still away at the body shop, hopes of taking it to Cadwell next month are slipping away with each day but I suppose as long as the final result is good thats all that matters! Received some goodies in the past week: New set of Enkei RPF1s in 16x8 ET38 courtesy of Mr Ivell at 6two1...

    You too mate. It is indeed! Fingers crossed it'll not be too much longer before I can start getting somewhere with it.

    EG6 finally away to be painted. Can’t wait for it to come back with its new look.

    Small follow up, the red DC2 was due to go in for paint this week but I've a few more jobs I'd like to complete before it does. The EG6 is now going instead, due to be collected any day now. Completely stripped bar the dash internally, all seals removed where possible and the last bits of...

    Dug the white DC2 out of hibernation for the first time in months. Obligatory photo ensued of course

    Having done some research it appears the bonnet on the red DC2 is a J's Racing item. I've got an oem bonnet for it now so this is surplus to requirements. £500.00 takes it. All intact just needs the awful paint sorting.

    Little update. Key set arrived the other day, red dc2 now starts with a key and not a screw driver :) I've got a bonnet to collect next week, rear bumper has arrived. Just need to sort a JDM bootlid for it now and it'll be somewhere near sending for paint. Managed to acquire most components to...

    Managed to get a full lock set/barrel and keys for the red DC2 after being let down on the set I found initially. Hoping to dig my K Swap DC2 out shortly to have a new 3"exhaust made, send my spare engine mounts off to have some softer poly bushes fitted and get it booked in to have it...

    Red DC2 is back in the workshop. Removed the aftermarket immob unit and wiring (if the standard of wiring I found is common practice among immob installations then I'd begrudge paying anyone to fit one, absolutely awful. Thin gauge wiring doubled up where a thicker gauge was as standard, twist...

    EK9 looking a bit worse for wear. EG6 SiR2, I was test fitting the osaka wing and planning fuel line routing here. I adore this car. Red teg! Collection arranged for the coming Sunday. And last but not least, the coupe:

    Cheers! I had a good look at it when I went across last Sunday to settle the balance owed, I bought it blind haha. Its honest enough, I knew it needed paint and a key/barrel set but that didnt put me off. The arches are great and haven't been rolled like so many have now, sills are solid, boot...
