saw this at tegiwa 6 months back cleanest one I've seen in real life
Sweet, looks so clean and exactly the same as mine haha. What colour is yours mate?
what a minter
Same as yours Granada Black Pearl, its the colour I've always wanted.
Little update: Spoon dampers/springs have arrived (very quick service from Japperformanceparts as usual). I am just waiting on some half-decent weather and a willing friend to help fit them.
Had a bash at fitting them today, rears went on ok, but I ran out of light (and hit a stuck bolt) on the fronts. Randomly met Simon as he just happened to be passing by whilst I was working on her, good meeting you man! Rears are quite low, I can only just get two fingers between arch and tyre.
Got round to finishing the suspension up today, got a little frustrated with sticky bolts though. The fact that it is in such good condition can be a bit of a curse, theres very little play in the bushes and it made it difficult to realign everything once it had been unbolted!
Anyway, heres some random shots of the install. First time doing something so major to my car.
My makeshift weather-barrier....I really miss having a bigger garage!
The Car is all dirty and grease-streaked from my hands, so I shall clean it before posting up fully fitted pics.
aww its a pain in the arse mate, i struggled with mine
Nice looking car mate. The Recaro looks pimp in it. You should head down to one of the Brighton meets sometime. We need a new face to give us some fresh banter
Nice cover to work under look forward to more pics :cool:
Nice EG6. I love it
I finally found the winter wheels I had been looking for (for absolutely ages); Rare 15'' optional OEM wheels. You hardly ever see these on UK cars, although they are a little more common on imports. They were available in black from the factory (even UK models) but I've never seen a set. I shall be repainting mine obviously!
I also picked up a few bits to finish the interior, OEM SiR-S horn button, DIN block off plate and some Autostyle tailored mats (which are crap). I wish I had just bought some OEM black ITR mats instead.
verry nice mate, you selling the sparco wheels?
I've seen those wheels befor ewith rover centre caps..car looks gorgeous dude, good work!
Most definitely not, haha! The Sparco's have RE-01R's on them and they don't like rain or any temperatures below 10 degrees so I need another set of wheels and tyres for winter use.
Looks like a minter!
you seriously need to get to a brighton meet buddy....this car needs to be seen!
I did, I went to the first one in December! I looked for your car but I don't think you were there
I think i was on tour for that one.
We should be meeting up in the coming week.....post christmas meet!
I've posted a few pics in the other sections but I haven't updated this in ages! Mainly because I've been having too much fun driving it! A few new bits in the last couple of months, but I've mainly been selling and trading parts. Recent additions are the Spoon N1 and finally reinstating my beloved Bridgestone RE-01R's. The wheels were recently powdercoated silver and I sourced new OEM decals for the doors in silver. I've decided to stick with the OEM look, so my fixed back seat is up for grabs and hopefully I'm picking up the remnents of a minty fresh Kouki interior plus some extras. Possibly looking at getting the JDM 4-1 manifold with heatshields for a stealthy look under the bonnet.
