    Hello there boys and girls :Smile:


    As I drive to work in the dark, and return in the dark... time has been limited lately for working on the car. I have found the odd day to do a bit of work but due to the minimum sunlight we have at this time of the year there are no WIP pics :Frown:


    Progress so far includes:


    * JDM Side Repeaters


    * JDM Suspension setup c/w 60mm Springs


    * Del Sol Front Seats


    * JDM Amber Corners


    * HEKO Wind Deflectors


    * Removed bump strip from front bumper


    * Replaced ancient air filter with a K&N panel filter


    * Replaced the dodgy spark plugs with NGKs


    * Replaced door locks with EK ones


    * Replaced the shocking alloys with OEM EF steelies.


    * Replaced the f00ked door speakers with decent ones


    I do have a stack of other pics though so ill let them do the talking :Smile:
