^^ holy sheet you've got some nice bikes!

once I get engine mounts sorted with this ill be getting back into it. going to be replacing the tie rods and the lower ball joints and then tidying up some other little things. contemplating getting the front arms powder coated whilst ill doing the joints and tie rods.

Car spent last year doing very little TBH, front lip is off for the winter so it looks weird. ride height needs to come up slightly as the hardrace camber arms are making contact with the strut towers occasionally. got a stack of things lined up to fit atm; inner and outer track rods. going to flush the fluid at the same time. also going to be replacing the mount inserts from 62A to 75A as the rear mount is shagged silly. Got some tints for the lights that i might play with and want to get the oem wheels refurbed at some point.

cheers for the comments. Decided to freshen up the interior a little. Gopro makes the red alot brighter than what it actually is. need to find out a way to adjust that but still happy how the seats came up. drivers seat might need another run over but definitely alot cleaner.





Going to be putting in new engine mounts, inner and outer track rods and some new wheel bearings and ball joints soon too. also going to adjust the ride height again as the front is too low.

Looking well as always mate, are you planning to make it out on track this year?

Would be good to get another ek9.org track meet organised again. We could even do Mondello if there are more Southern Ireland guys up for going

Some issues to sort out with the front end, not sure yet if its due to the mounts being shagged or more likely the cv joints are done. but once its sorted im definitely getting out on track again. doing a few on the motorbike too so its going to be an expensive summer!!

Anyone know if sticker type number plates are legal? dont really want to have the number plate off to the side and think it will look silly stuck in the middle?
