    So some of you may remember my old coupe - it died a very unfortunate death, and I haven't showed pictures and stuff but I probably will. Not in here however!!

    In here goes my new car - I dunno what white it is, but it's white and it's a facelift and it's an EJ9 :Smile:

    It's FSH, 42K miles, NO sunroof (win!), and all the usuals (Pioneer tapedeck, phwoar!!) - Even the original mats and mat stay with an unused toolkit in the back. Apart from a few annoying parking dents and a clearly resprayed rear bumper, this car is mint!! The brake calipers are clean and everything!

    So anyway, It couldn't stay standard for long - after dropping some cash on a new coilover, I had a complete set again, and on it went in preparation for mimms as well as some part-time wheels :Smile: Pics ahoy!

    Here it is :Smile:


    Something familiar from mimms (not mine though!):


    Getting our spray on!:


    Part the way through:


    The temporary wheels in place:


    Just because:


    The cause of lows:


    Half way there:


    Eat your heart out tbh...


    And we're there!


    No adjustment whatsoever, all camber is natural :Smile:


    So that's it at the moment - gotta sell off some parts, and get some parts turned from black to white - also I have some chassis related goods to go on - quite a lot infact - just cleaning it all up at the moment! I need the SUN!!

    Comments welcome - bare in mind this is just temporary and also idgaf :Tongue:

    EDIT: Forgot to mention I tilted the spoiler slightly and sprayed the back-box matt black to match the wheels, I'll get photos of those next time I do something :Smile:

    I've done some interior bits too including EK9 RX cup holders, EK9 door switch, Broadway mirror and DC2 gear knob!

    So you have the same headunit eh :Tongue: lol, suprised the tape facility works ok on mine, rockin' the old school Street Sounds Electro tapes atm, sounds pretty good. :Smile:

    Like it so far :thumbs: shame mine wasn't a manual :Frown: and your mileage is very low, mines nearly twice yours. lol

    I wish I'd kept my meister's from the EG sucks having to buy again but gonna get superlows this time. :blush: lol

    Haha matt black to be precise - and purely because I bought the paint and said that this is the colour they're going! They're still his and they'll be his winter wheels probably - just did it for the mean time really :Smile:

    No just Zeta-S - this is the lowest they will go on the front, the rears will go lower but I like the slight rake! They have settled more since the above photo btw and need light adjustment on the pre-load!

    Cheers everyone!! This will go probably a thousand different directions - I'm not sure I'll ever settle on wheels - the next set to go on will be very different and not dished - and even they will be temporary I reckon :Smile:

    Cheers again :Grin:
