    Small Update


    I bought a Poly lip from Eazelee on here, its a hybrid combo between a Spoon and Mugen lool


    Fitted it same day:


    32068B14-31D7-447D-A8AE-ACB669312BD8-26165-000010E3A09CCAE8.


    A2AF7DE2-0F9A-47A6-8737-F293E2EC7BCA-26165-000010E39C1370BF.


    ACF5D095-D5DF-4F3A-8EB4-2290D7C15C55-26165-000010E397304466.


    The Sick thing about Poly lips is if at first they don't fit, pull out a hairdryer and mould it into shape


    Its a perfect fitment!


    2FB92802-30E6-4C72-B67A-4D9D71AF9245-26165-000010E392BB21AE.


    D4E604E3-48DE-47AD-910D-006A98034689-26165-000010E38C67D81C.


    Whenever I get a spare hour or two and the weathers okay, Im going to wash and tack cloth down the front end and give it a respray. The bonnet has chips where the green underneath it is showing, and the bumper has loads of Red bits where the black has flaked away


    Im on the lookout for a good condition EG shell, in Black preferably. I wouldn't mind a grey or white one though... But budget is restricting my options..

    Thanks lads


    LOL kadir I was driving home minding my own business, the RX8 started hyping to me, I had him up so he humbled himself, and retired to the left most lane doing less than the speed limit...


    some people lol

    Just finished reafing half your build. Gone through some issues but brought urself back up. Spec and car is looking good man. Lip looks so much better on your car :Smile: glad you like it dude!

    Thanks mate.


    UPDATE: Unfortunately, the car is now SORND (for the meantime...) Funds won't allow me to put the car back on road..


    as mentioned previously, I got major rust issues on this car... I really need to reshell...


    It really needs an all round set of new bushes, and a new set of coilys as 2 are leaking- once thats done then Functionally the car would be spot on... Engine wise its sweeeeet..


    I've had loads of fun in this since having it remapped- I regret not getting it done sooner... its only 180bhp but in 900 odd kg's- it gives others a good run for their money lool


    Im 50/50 about what to do long term, I kinda want to give it the money and attention it deserves- my original intention was to go boosted C4- 300+ BHP.. I also want a gloss black shell I could make a high detailed finish..


    I also kinda want to move onto to more cars, bigger&more powerful cars, more sensible even, i wanna take a trip to the RWD side,..


    I have considered selling the car- but I know I won't get much for what the car is worth- and it has more sentimental value anyway


    I've been contemplating breaking it, but for the moment I don't have the time and I havent decided just yet on what Im doing with it..


    Thanks to all who commented... Il update on what im doing with the car in the near future.


    Zoaib.

    Damn dude! I guess sometimes you just need to sit down and think wat would be best!


    I'd personally say find a nice shell and swap all the parts over and finish the build :Smile:


    Watever you do let me know if you need a hand man.


    Goodluck!

  17. Eazalee Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Ahhh not good news bro :Frown: im sure something will come through for you. Sell some bits u don't majorly want/need to fund the new shell then get them back in time? Thats if u keep it going lol

    Been a long time I havent update, I was out the country for a bout 7 months or so... back now and car is back on the road- has been for a couple months now. 

    Just had a small issue recently, snapped a driveshaft the other day...

    314D32FA-840D-4EAF-B014-31D765F34DA9-4362-000002FF5D74C2F0_zps47a318bd.

    2 step launched and while in 2nd it snapped lol  

    this should be fixed by tomorrow or the day after latest 

    since getting it back on road, I've replaced the AEM short arm with an Injen Long arm- same spec as the AEM V1 long arm. 

    Just getting it prepped for track, I've bought a hamp shortie and a full service is in order. may have to look at tyres and pads but hopefully they'll last up until track 

    for now its sitting like this up until I repace the snapped driveshaft
