But now i see it finshed i know it was worth it to get it looking good.

looks real nice mate. please don't go 16s though... 15s max.

i can help you source wheels via yahoo japan if you would like.

edit - in fact i can help anyone source any parts if they need a hand, just let me know.

Just a thought! if you put 15's MAX! and lower the car to where it would look the part, wouldn't it mean that the rear would be sitting on the bump stops and the front would have had almost half of the spring cut out of it, once the rear A-frames have passed their horizontal arch they have nearly no suspension resistance in them what so ever, not much of a racecar!

also prepared the front and rear bumpers for polishing.

Dont seem like much but everythink takes time, hope to get the parts for the motor this week and get it back in maybe weekend after next.

Hoping to get the dynamating done during this week so i can start to refit the interior over the next week or so.

Dyna mat is for noise and heat, heat being the main reason i did it.

Its been raining in sydney near none stop for the 2-3weeks so time to do things when i only have a single garage has been short.

Having said that i have got all the parts here now to clean up the engine and put it in, just need to find a gearbox and pedal box.

Also trail fitted seats so could work out how the new carpet went in.

heaps of room in the back with no front seats LOL

first time i have every sat in the front seat of this car.

And i have done these but im still missing the weather strips on the front doors. i really need to find these as i plan on having all the metal work repaired to new once i have the last two pieces and will take the company 6-8weeks to do.

Don't you love Sydney weather!

Just out of curiosity, what Company will you use to fix the s/s trims? I ask because some of my trims will need repairing and re-polishing, along with my bumpers

in the near future.
