    Hi,

    I got this 1999 EK COUPE (EM1) from salvage about 2weeks ago and im in the process of repairing it... here are some of the progress...

    nuhin160307130a. (when it first arrived)!!!!

    so far i removed the front bumper, bonnet and passenger side wing, those were the body panels that needed replacing, also i ordered a bumper assembly cross member... need to get some headlights as the straps are F*****D.... also need to find a b18a2 air-con radiator and that's pretty much it... well also need to do alot of bringing this car back to life as it doesn't look much care was given :O ... oh yeah also need to fix the passenger side wing mirror.... and then finally get a full front end RESPRAY...

    I would say looks like a good start but with the bodywork in the shape you say maybe not, although it does look like a good base for a project car! Good luck mate :Grin:

    Yeah didn't realise that was you until Ray said after you went. Otherwise I would have said hello.

    I wasn't in a very good mood when you were there, I wasn't getting on very well with wiring up my gauges. Damn sandwich plate!! :| Still don't have oil pressure, because the sensor was too fuckin big!! GRRRRR! :Frown:

    How's the progress of the car going?
