Looks shiny Smile

Suspension is a must though, are you proposing some premium stuff - bilstein/eibach etc?

Stick a set of Koni TA's on, there's plenty about second hand.

Keep an eye out for a KStar aswell, it'll do wonders for the top end.

well im sure everyone will be very pleased to hear i have bankruppted myself by bying a set of brand new Koni Coilovers 777 :s i really have no money now!!!! lol

still im sure it will look sweet as feck now!

ive still got a few jobs i need to do including a really really really big clean which im not looking forward too, just repolishing the wheels is going to take me hours! but it will be nice having the car for the summer thats for sure! and having the height right.

just read through the thread again, im so glad i dont have to do all that agian im tired after just reading it lol. just need the weather to warm up a tad now so i can get cracking on the suspension. also have to fit the strighter bumper bar, and the number plate tub. also need to swap the dash surround and fit the new water proof hid box's i have. once thats all done we are at show stand stage then.

woo! roll on ultimate dubs would really like to be on the stand if they will have me Very Happy

here we go then folks, finished fitting them today and booked in for camber on Wednesday.

as well as fitting the coilovers ive also fitted the 280mm VR6 brakes ive had forever they fit really snuggly behind the wheels. At the same time i also fitted lower balljoints as i found a new set in a box that ive never used.

The brakes seem pretty good so far only had a few uses on brand new disks and pads so will be interesting to see what they are like when bedded in, still even now they are really good.

hope you like!

Well done Steve. Car looks like is all ready now. Congrats on the effort as well, it isn't easy when you don't feel too good to motivate yourself but you got there in the end. Only a couple of days to go now.
