project update


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

just a small update on things, as i havn't had much time (or money) to do much lately..

I spent the last 2 weekends repainting the brake calipers and engine covers on the car in an awesome metallic red that i found. The pictures don't do it justice, but i thought i would post them up anyway

The covers use to be a powdercoated yellow (meant to be gold, but far from it).. and while they arn't S20 red.. i am happy that i am going back to the red theme..

oh.. attached is also a photo of the brand new Cusco front stut brace i finally got from japan :)

as for the rest of the car, i have taken off the watanabe's and getting ready to coat them in POR's Glisten PC (hard clear coat), for added protection.

otherwise, i am still working towards getting the car painted, i still need to finish scrubing off any loose bitumen from underneath the car, then i am going to give the bottom a coat of POR15, then re-bitumen it for extra extra protection (i really can't be bothered trying to completely remove the bitumen on there, and 80% of it seems to be on pretty well).

then early next year i will get the engine bay painted, put the engine etc. in (so i won't scratch the body putting it in later).. then get the rest of the body painted.. then hopefully it will be on the home straight!

Hi Mate,

the brace came out to be around $120 australian, but this did not cover postage as i had somebody bring it back for me (luckily).. it is in the cusco catalogue, but it is a special order, so they make it up as you order it..

and yes, before anyone says something.. i do realise the S20 engine covers are black.. but atleast the intake is redish :)
