Well i needed a car with tax an test an i regretted selling my last black ek. (Thread is on here somewhere)

So i went out and found this little gem in my hometown. Even though i had never seen it before?

Bought it for a steal with tax an nct shes a ej9 1.4

Very lively and healthy engine and rust free car.

Paint is alright as it was sprayed before but its done baddly but looks well so will do for now till i get it resprayed in the future.

Im going to keep this one if i can because i always miss not having an ek even though i have the eg6.

It had god awful lexus lights which had been put on wrong and wer bastards to get off?

But ya its gone through a lot of changes so i llet the pictures do some of the talking.

Rear disk conversion , SiR prop valve and 1' master cylinder or close to it

Good alarm with remote start

Cant remember the last time i updated this so said id pop in ha.

I got a proper jap black bonnet off an ek4 SiR with all the jap stickers haha (im strange like that i like all the little things)

Got a Full Greddy turbo kit for it too and got windows tinted an visor put on.

Got my ek9 red carpet but i always throw oily tools and stuff on the floor as this is my work car and i eat in it, so i cant justify putting in the cleanest type r carpet iv ever seen into it haha.

I did my timing belt as well and serviced it, just to have it all fresh for the turbo kit.

I will be going low boost with a map on a p28 ecu that i will get mapped :)

I have a full set of SiR hubs front and back that will be put onto this along with proportion valve and master cylinder and handbreak cables so i will have way better brakes. Disks and pads are all brand new on the conversion and callipers are fresh.

I will probably get the car painted over time too.

Just have to get a bys front bumper and put in coilovers and get it sitting where i want it.

Also have new rainsports tyres to go onto it :)

I cant upload pictures so if someone wants to show me how that would be great :(

Don't use Photobucket Roy. Its gone to s**t for everyone. Only solution is to use another website, like Flickr or Imgur.

I use an app that resizes my photos so that they work with the forum size limit.
Honestly i find that much easier than photobucket used to be.

Bottom right, you have 5 options. The middle one is 'Share Photo'. Click into it and this menu comes up.

Choose 'BBCode' and then your preferred image size. It'll spit out a link. Copy and paste that onto your thread and you're away.
