Fitted my wheels to the car.
Enkei NT03's Refurbed in Gunmetal.

Image
Image

Also Fitted the D2 Bucket Seats to the OMP Side Rails

Image

Removed the brackets from my OEM seat rails.

Cleaned the surface of OMP Rails ready for welding,
Image

Fitted with my Luke harness'

Image

also the car came back from the bodyshop South Tyneside Coachworks today.
Cannot Recommend this shop enough. The paintwork and prep work is fantastic.

The colour I went for is somewhere between a Beige and cream.
The photo's show the car as an off-white but it is darker in the "flesh"

This photo best shows the colour. but doesn't quite show the real colour.
Image

The Result

Fully smoothed Mugen Front.
Image
Image
Image

Side Views
Image
Image


Rear (with Reversing sensors Removed and smoothed out.)
Image
Image


Image

Couldn't be happier with the results :-D

Resprayed my OEM Enkei's while I wait for my new wheels to arrive.

Candy Purple with a coat of glitter lacquar. then a clear gloss lacquar.

Image
Image

Not the best pics but you get the idea, was too dark outside to get a decent picure on the car.

New wheels soon
Purple Enkie OEMs on while I wait for the new wheels to arrive.
Lol

Image


New Rear coilovers arrived today
D2 Fully adjustble Rear coils.

These are going to be used for Daily driving and will be set to a low ride height for use with the new wheels arriving tomorrow.

Image

while these are on the car the Spax RSX I have on at the minute will be refurbished. and used along side some track wheels I'll be getting.
Not sure whether to use the Enkei OEM's with some decent tyres or get some lighter wheels 16's
Then a FRSU.

also another smaller mod,

Buddy Club gear knob.
Its a lot lighter than the Skunk 2 and seems a bit better shape. more feel when changing gear too.
Image

And Fitted against the all black dash.

Ok so my Wheels have arrived.

There in the form of Rays Volks GTP-A Daytona One Piece Fully Polished.
17" x 8.5 et 20 (No i didn't get my offsets wrong :-D )

Couple of pictures of the wheels themselves.
Image

Image

Fingerprints all over them already. :bad-words:

Little bit of stretch required to get the wheels under the arch.

Image
Not fitted the wheels yet and i need to fiddle with the ride height and camber.


These are going to be my daily wheels, I'll have other wheels and a different suspension set up for Track days (and another front bumper :lol: )

also another cheeky delivery. This one fitted. Beaks lower tie Bar
Image
Image


Tidy'd up the front end with the lower grill colour and Number plate fitted. (Not sure about its placement yet)
Crap dark picture but you get the point.

Image

and some Fitment Collective goodness!

Image
Image

Got to Represent :bigthumb:

Car finally feels like its taking shape.
when the wheels are on the car will be almost finished apart from tuning!

Wheels should be fitted on Sunday. Can't wait!
