At Bodyshop: Firewall installed, few bits tidied also. Alignment done. Had a few teething problems, but hopefully ironed most out now: Few later pics: Few updates after Daz moaned that i am no good at updating project threads! Had a few issues with cooling, didnt feelnthe fans on it were up to much, so replaced them with 2 12" Pacets, now you can actually hear them working! Changed rad too as that was leaking at the seam by the endtanks: Put it back together just in time for Blyton Sprint, and trailered it up there to its birthplace! Lol. Daz very kindly let me store it at his the night before. At Blyton had some issues with coolant temp again, Daz attended with me and was a great help during the day, thanks Daz. We decided to change the aftermarket Header Tank on it back to an OEM one and try from there, a quick trip to Dazs saw one removed from my old JDM widetrack, back at track was re-fitted then went out again, found water temp to be sorted! Some pics from the day: Finally after a few teething problems, met Simon JGM at SVA Imports today to finalise the map on the car. Big thanks to Simon for his patience over the past few months, even going out of his way and doing some interesting late night mapping sessions. Thanks again Simon. Few other changes have been made since last update with the addition of Carbon Door Trims front and rear, New flocked dash etc. Will take some pics at the weekend and update. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
