Cadwell is an awesome track, you'll have a blast.

Take care though, 11 red flags when I was there in November and most of them were cars that found the barrier - it was a 100% dry day! :-s
Had a lot of people scaring me with things like that haha! Not a lot of run off has a lot to do with it I guess. I've never been before and heard it's not the best beginner track so hopefully I'll be okay :(

I want it as OEM as poss, so will be getting some genuine decals at some point... They're just so expensive - so it's whenever I can bring myself to pay all that money for stickers :shocked:

Yup! guy in Monkseaton called Adrian - think his business is AC autocolour. It's just him on his own but he's got such a good reputation in Newcastle. Dont think I'd take a car anywhere else. He's so ****, he found things I'd not noticed and even polished my headlights while he had it! :bow: Price - I was really lucky and got an extremely good price :D

Thanks! it's such a difficult one, I have such a love of having completely mint OEM cars, but I like using them too!

I have far OCD and far too much spare time hahaa

Took the car to the jetwash (I dont have a pressure washer or anything) and thought I'd give the underside a proper blast off after the salty wet road weather. So annoyed i didnt take my camera, by the time I'd remembered, I'd already jacked the car up..so sh*tty iphone photos will have to do :(
Pretty happy with the condition of the underside tbf.. Scuse the state of her, was pre-wash!





Engine bay also got some loving today - not entirely sure when the last time someone cleaned it was tbh haha
G101 at 1:10 sprayed and left, then agitated and lightly sprayed with the hose. g101 again and hosed, then dried and dressed with Aerospace 303 and paint in the engine bay gone over with AF Tripple - super happy. didnt take many photos and the engine bay will look totally different soon, but it was bugging me...so :D

before...




and after..

Loving AF tripple on my inner wings <3


went round the whole car with Colinite 476 again. The vics and blacklight looks awesome, but it doesnt seem hard wearing enough when the weathers still so on and off. Plus i just love this stuff haha



and a cheeky one of the pearl in the paint..they're water droplets not a blemish if anyone was wondering haha. so hard to photograph, but you can kinda see :)


also found this cheeky little thing, free mods you never realised you had ftw.

Never seen a black car this shiny, it's like the paint is still wet.

annoyingly, it wont fit with the new intake so i've had to take it off till i work out how to fit both together! :angry:

Busy day this morning :)

So track day imminent...Went for my favourite combination of ds2500's and ATE super blue! Brakes felt awful before, could of just been a case of rebleeding and being too used to a large brake set up before, but I'm much happier now with them :)



Bought the car with oil down the left side on the engine, pooling on the headgasket and running down the gearbox - camshaft seal came with the car so i put it on today - all sorted :dance:
cover off, oily head and old seal...

and all done :)


I know these aren't very popular, but I like it and the sound is insane :)

Just love this! Black is the nicest colour for the 9 IMO.
Lots of pics of it on the track please :)
