car all back together, still some other bits and bobs to do with it. uprated mounts are rather solid and everything vibrates now! lol. 300mm brake setup is a nice upgrade over standard, feels like it could lift the rear on hard braking!

I've always wanted that set of wheels :(

Congrats, stunning build. :D

nothing really to update apart from the fact that the uprated mounts vibrated my mugen intake lid loose and i lost all but two of the original screws which really REALLY pissed me off! :-/

As usual not alot to update. Lol. Want to change the colour of the wheels or get some ce28 if I could ever find any. Front end needs painted as it's stone chipped to hell. Only issue is the release bearing squeaking but cba to take the gearbox out to sort that out.

Just read through you're whole thread. What an example fair play, not many left in this condition now. Would love to see this in person some time.

Also, where did you get the socks for the bcs? Are they specifically for coilovers? I'm using tights on mine but would prefer something better for peace of mind
