I prefer the suede personally, with a strip of tape at the top for that tracked up feel, the leather looks classy tho

ok so got a little update.

ive been running a little low on money so im a bit behind tbf! and doubt il make it to south mimms unless this months wages is high!

over the weekend i stripped the engine bay even more so could spray it good and proper. everything but subframe, brake lines and brake master cylinder.

and bought some NHO paint this morning and started spraying, just got a good first coat on there and its starting to look good (:




and also won some coilovers on ebay. heard some good things about them and few bad things too but for the price and 32 way adjustable i couldnt care! they are daiyama's

so my stock suspension is up for sale.

thats it for now but hopefully i will have the bay done for saturday to get the engine back in!

hope this helps dude, this is that place....

http://www.glazeautoparts.co.uk/

if you do end up going there ask them which is the best for car battery wire, if they come out with some red stuff and its 5 a metre then thats the stuff, also ask them about the conneector blocks thingy'ssss

ring me if you get stuck and i'l see if i can get down to there.

thanks cus, yeah i might pop down next weekend and have a browse.
those connector block thingys are they what conncet to the battery?

this morning i was woken by a knock at the door and it was Mr Postman with these!








First impressions are good! they look tough and sturdy. and the adjustable dampening is easily spotted and easy to turn. apparently competitors with D2 and BC and i should think so with a hefty price tag of 599!
hopefully they are as good as they look.
and it said on the description that they were 30 way adjustable front and 28 rear but ive turned them all to check and im sure front is 36 and rear is 32 :S but they are 8kg/mm front and 8kg/mm rear stock ek9 suspension is 4.3kg/mm front and 4.2kg/mm rear so are stiffer than stock anyways.
you even get a little tape measure (:
more to come

These are nice, one word of advice, get some sort of dirt sleever to put over these for when they are on the car i kid you not, within few months u will have so much shit stuck in the threas the perches will get seized big time, me and my mate both had this issue.

yeah tesh that sounds good! i might have to do that!

got a fair bit done on saturday, engine in and coilovers on.
heres a few pics in the dark of what its looking like atm.





still got a fair bit to do, but now i cant get the jack under! haha
and i have a question, my car has airbags and obviously replacing the airbag with the momo wheel. do i need a boss that is compatible with an airbag? cause everyone i see says no airbag and i dont know wether that means you can use an airbag with it or you cant use it on a car that once had an airbag???

and lucky i only used water to first start it up and not honda coolant! still got that leak! its coming from where the hose loops from the water temp housing to the inlet. i put a new gasket on the inlet and its like theres a hole between the inlet and head! and cant work it out! so gonna have to take it off today and have a look. and its idling between 1500 - 2000 so something isnt quite right! the only thing iv changed is the dizzy cap though, so maybe something to do with that!
il keep your posted (:
