Long overdue an update on this, picked up a few parts,*
Finally got a red bride zeta 2 seat, Jdm distro were having a sale on so I abandoned the hope of finding a carbon or Kevlar backed one an grabbed a bargin,*



Fitted in the car*


Wen I got the seat first I had no car to put in so hadta make use of it! :lol!:


Also picked up a set of Hel braided brake line off KieranO, as usual he was spot on to deal with, they will be fitted soon,*


And no update on this car would b complete with out some more spoon parts, well here they are fresh from japan brand spanking new spoon twinblocks! Nearly too good looking to fit!*



The calipers and brake lines will b fitted shortly after the drag day, I plan on using the*gtechniq c5 wheel armour on the calipers to try an preserve the look of them for as long as possible,*


Other than that just been peeping the car for the drag day, got new bumper and headlights so I can keep the origenal one clean, and also got a lend of a carbon bonnet to see a few extra pounds,*


Will update after the drag day as to how I get on!

So the drag day went well! 13.8 was best time of the day, first time out in the 9, no issues with the car all day so was happy enough!
Can only get better from here!

Few pics of the car before I left, had a carbon bonnet on it but forgot to take pics!




And that R32 GTR! :drool:

Since the last update I've bought a small few parts

New oem exhaust mani gasket


I sold my Plm toda rep manifold and bought the real deal, a heat wrapped Toda V2



Also took out the cusco coilovers because they didn't go low enough and bought some new BC Racing BR coilovers from MCGAutoStying a pleasure to deal with as always!


Here's a few shots of the coils fitted and the car washed,



I had the car on the site stand at japfest last week an needed to giv the car a proper clean for it so I dropped it into Dave at Kilkenny car complex valeting and he done some job, would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get there car valeted few pics from when I collected her,

Love this car with the CP035's, VSM is such a nice colour in them aswell. Not many sets of those cam gears around either!.
