Tein Monoflex and Stoptech big brake fitted on the front »

Today we started on the suspension and braking system replacement on the car. The old Brembos came off without to much trouble and it was pretty simple to remove the existing front shocks at the same time. After removal of the shocks I adjusted the new Tein ones to about the same height as a [...]

Car undersealing »

The next step of the job was to underseal the whole car, we are fortunate that it is a very solid car underneath being a Jap import. We really wanted to keep it that way as well. We prepaired all the areas to be treated, primarily this is inside of the doors, the sills, rear [...]

All my parts have arrived look at this little lot »

I ordered most of this stuff back in September but it was all well worth the wait. I can now start putting my engine together now!.

Removed interior for waxoyling »

We took the interior out the car today toget it ready to waxoyl in the doors, the rear quarter panels and floor. When we have done this we are also undersealing the whole car as well. This should give it a real good protection from the elements for many years to come. While all the trim [...]

Respray finnished and car delivered home »

The car was delivered home today after having the respray done, im very pleased with the colour and finnish. The whole task ahead looks somewhat daunting at the moment though.

Respray progress »

Banburys have been doing fantastic work on the painting side of things. The car has had a lot of it taken back to bare metal. All the windows have been taken out and the Bumpers, Doors, Bonnett, and Tailgate have also been taken off.  I would give them 11 out of 10 for what they [...]

Lots and lots of Shiny stuff!! »

I had the Plenham and throttle bodies done at GS polishing they cost around £450 to do and took around a month to complete. I sent them up there and he posted them back. The chap was no trouble at all and he turned out to be reliable.
As we got the engine apart there were [...]
