  1. Serviced the donor car I bought for the race car. Old oil flushed. New filter, plug washer and oil. Radiator flushed and filled with fresh coolant. Trans was completely empty so filled with oil. Brakes bled with fresh fluid so they actually work now. Discovered the old fuel filter had been bypassed, so installed a fresh one and hooked it up. Pumped the old fuel out and put some fresh 98 in. Then checked base fuel pressure and adjusted slightly. Fixed a few other little things like the water temp gauge, the intercooler rubbing on radiator support and the exhaust rattling on towbar. Found the steering rack leaks like a sieve. Thankfully the one on the racecar doesn't. So will leave that for now. The exhaust is pretty cooked. The bottom of the downpipe is about to break off from the rest of the exhaust. Going twinscroll anyway so not needed. Also noticed its missing 3 of the 5 nuts holding the downpipe to the turbo lol. Anywho, took it for a short test drive which went well. 12-13psi on a short pull. Sounds pretty healthy and makes cool turbo noises. Next on the list: send a can of upper engine cleaner through it, change the plugs and check rear diff oil. Then I'm basically ready to pull the engine from the donor car and start getting it ready to put in the racecar.
  2. This might help - the colourful dots on each spring determine what they fit https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?p=10724424

  4. Front and rear essential kits. Will mean I can get the damn thing rolling on its own wheels. Finally.
  5. These were delivered yesterday - will start putting things together after work tomorrow
  6. Bought a s*** load of bushes for the race car
  7. I've emailed them three times over the last 5 years and never had a response the c*nts
  8. I've had two cars stolen - both had the same personalised plate The insurance company essentially took ownership of them once they pay out. However, both times they transferred the plates back under my name so they could be used again.
  9. I'm not sure what part you are talking about, Can you show us an image or something?

  12. They were black sti parts before... @chulozumo powder coated them pink for me
  13. So I wanna get the race car rolling so I can get it to a mates warehouse with the intention of it going up on a hoist... We will have a heap of space to work in when it's there too so hopefully this keeps the motivation up lol Anyway: put the front lower control arms in and discovered I'm missing a whole box of nuts and bolts.... so instead of a castle nut on the ball joint I have a wheel nut (dw this is only temp so I can get it rolling) Wanted to see what the brembos going to look like (and yes i know that's the drivers side caliper... the other one was under three rotors in a box) Turns out I don't have the brembo caliper bolts either.... that ones sitting there precariously on some undersized bolts... Next we started putting doors on, put the guard support brackets on and then the guards \ Next on the list is to order a bushing kit for the rear so we can put the subframe etc back in This will then mean I have a roller!
