Few updates...

SOLD THE SPEC 2!! cheers

Bought myself a VTi mid-pipe & cheap backbox, sounds sooo much better, alot more driveable now too.... except for the fact it hangs about 1cm from the floor, mehhh!

Pictures from the today..



Jacked up, it was a cosy place to be..




Had to extend the pipe to fit with the de-cat & teg manifold...



& on! Had to butcher the bumper lip abit, but its on.




Sooo much better to drive, I actually hit VTEC without people hearing it 3 miles away! #winning

Ordered some ARC replica winglets in gloss black from thebooosh! too. So just waiting for them, gunna get some decals made for um, just don't know what yet!

After 6months with just door speakers, I thought Id wire my rear 6x9s back in! But without the rear trim to hold them, I had to make some boxes.

READY?!

Insert ghetto cardboard speakerboxes...




They work a treat, Ill probably make them out of wood & carpet them at some piont, but for now, they are fine!

Oooooo another thing!

May have slightly won these on ebay..







Not the best condition, but the plan is...
- Split um
- New dishes (15x8 & 15x9)
- Repaint them gunmetal grey
- Respray the bolts a bling gold
- ROLL MY RUSTY ARCHES!!!1!
- stretch some tyres over um
- put them on & hard park the shit out of it!!

Cheeeeeers Very Happy

If you need a decent polisher I know the dude at Rainbow in Bham that can polish them up a treat, failing that you could try Autosol and rub the shit outta the lip.

Nice rims dude. :-)

Massive thanks to thebooosh! for these little fellas....



So I took my bumper off, mocked um up, drilled some holes, bolted & double-sided um on, bish, bash, bosh.







I also tided um some scrapes on the front bumper & touched up the rear bumper from the Buddyclub had burnt it away...





&& after looking at these photos, Ive just realised I forget to put my toe strap back throught the bumper grille, BRB.

I said to someone about 3 weeks ago 'I've never had any trouble with my plate being in my window'

since then Ive had 3 different police officers mention it to me. One of which was nice enough to knock on my door & tell me too. Nice guy.

So, I spent today making a removeble bracket, that I can take off for shows & meets & I won't have to drill holes in my purposely smoothed front bumper.

Pretty much taking two sheets of metal, bending them, sticking them togther & bolting it to the bumper...









Easily removeable Very Happy
