Thats exactly what I did lol, had 2 windows open side by side lmao!

My original plan was to just go powdercoated all white, similar to how the red EG has them. Just thought clean and simple was how I wanted and tbh I still do but you can't deny that the red wheels with white car looks bloody awesome!

Hey guys, well not too long got in from work and while i'm waiting for my gf to arrive home I thought i'd grab a couple shots while the driveway was empty lol. The car looks pretty clean in these pics (probs due to the relatively high ISO) however the things actually rancid and providing dry weather i'll probs give it a good clean the weekend!









Did an oil change over the weekend using a hamp filter and 5/40W Fully Synth so i'm pleased that's out the way now aswell as a couple other bits and bobs just tatting around with it lol!

I've also got a couple of things awaiting to arrive through the post for it such as Coilovers, Amber front indi lenses, Raizin Voltage Stabilizer kit, GRP sticker and JimmyUp sticker so when they arrive i'll be looking to get that lot on Smile Also need to drop somebody a PM on here about a couple little bits lol!

Also had a quick play just on Photoshop how I want the exterior looking. All i've done pretty much is a bodydrop and ambered the front lenses, that's because that's all I pretty much want to do to the exterior bar possible wheel colour change too



Plus, it's payday end of the week Razz

Yer I would like smaller rubber eventually. I'm quite liking the look of what 175/55 gives so will probs look into that eventually. I will have a look into the de-mudguarding. I don't think they look as offending as other cars so don't see them as much of a problem just yet lol!

Hey guys, welll payday has come and gone and things have slowly been trickling in.

Coilovers turned up the other day as did my Raizin kit. Fitted my Raizin kit Friday evening so all is well and good Smile the cars still got the slight hesitation although it's pretty minimal so isn't no major cause for concern

I haven't got around to fitting my coilies yet, should hopefully have them on ready for the Tegiwa day! I'm also waiting for a couple of polybush items which I would like to change along with the suspension change so can't really undertake the task until they arrive anyway! Also had through the post today my Amber indicator lenses and my lower front strut brace Very Happy I also had some Gameboys come today that I won on ebay, the lot came in a Royal Mail sack, it felt like Christmas had came early Very Happy Very Happy



My lenses, brace and coilovers Very Happy Got the lenses fitted earlier as it's only a two second job really Smile I'm happy with them and the fit is pretty good tbf! I also sprayed my outer grills on the front bumper black the other day which I just need to tidy up the edges slightly where my masking skills have failed me lol! The strut i'll probs look into doing when I come to do my coilies (Think that day will be a LONG one lol)

Yer man no worries, i'll try to remeber to do it when I reach home from work today bud!

If it's dry this weekend I might see if I can undergo fitting the coilies providing the polybushes arrive. I bet getting the old LCA bushes out is a absolute pig isn't it?

Hey guys, how are we??

Well, just a quick bump on this, been doing a few little bits and bobs since my last update on here.

Since i've had the car I haven't washed it yet lol! But tonight it got to the point where I thought I had to do something as it was driving me mental lol! So rather than dig out all my own pressure washer I drove to my local petrol station which has like garage jet wash areas. I took my own bucket, shampoo and mitt and used their gun to rinse it all down while using my own mitt to give it a good wipe down, can't believe how dirty it actually was when I was running my mitt across lmao! Ideally does need a good polish n shiz but I don't think i'll bother until the arse end of Christmas now lol, just keep on top of cleaning Smile I thought i'd grab a couple piccies while I was out...

Doesn't know what to do with a few Suds on it! hehe








I know it doesn't look gleeming but believe me, compared to how it started out it looks f*cking concourse now lmao!

As you can see a couple small things have changed.. I've got my Amber indis fitted, painted the lower out grills (Still need to tidy up the edges a little), fitted my white steering wheel and fitted my slightly larger full tin rear spoiler.

I've still got my coilovers sitting in the garage awaiting to be fitted. Also have a spare set of rear LCA's now which have had the old bushes pushed out and i've started fitting the new Energy bushes i've got. However the LCA pivot bushes seem too big for the hole, has anybody come across this with Energy bushes before? (Will make a dedicated thread in the apropriate area)

Along with that i've still got my front lower strut brace to fit aswell as swapping my throttle body over for a larger one from a D15Z6. I bought it second hand as I suspect the TPS is possibly on the way out on mine. The replacement came with a TPS which i've tested and appears to be all good Smile, I took the Throttle body with me to work Friday and had one of the guys clean it up for me on their Ultrasonic cleaner Very Happy Started out like so...



Not too bad but could always be cleaner Very Happy So after the cleaning came out like so...



While it was dismantled I replaced the Anti tamper screws with proper bolts and also replaced the O Ring for the MAP sensor. So at least even if it doesn't cure my slight hesitation It should run that little bit smoother being all clean n spangly Very Happy

So there we go! More to come such as going lower and new seats!

Should be fitting these tomorrow! Very Happy



Picked them up from a friend this evening who had them spare after swapping them out ofr a set of 'Lude leathers. They are absolute MINT not a scuff, rip nada! Got em for a pretty good price too Smile So tomorrow i'll finally be f*cking off those rancid colour stocko seats I currently have thank god!

Also with MASSIVE thanks to Saifskyline (Nice meeting you dude, your EG RAWKS!) I got a set of dark grey rear seats which I fitted in today, to go with the new 'lude seats Very Happy I'll probs have em folded down most the time anyway but should I need to rock more than 2 up at least i'll have decent looking seats all round Very Happy with just the rear seats alone you can see a massive difference! Just nice to look in the window and not be greeted by seats in a dashing shade of vomit!.....

You got it dude haha! Great for weather like this so you don't need to bother getting your own jetwash n stuff out.

Your more than welcome to the stock seats Powelly, have you got some seats in yours already? Reason I ask is that you'll need the outer rails from what seats you currently have to go onto mine as i'll be using them to fit the 'lude seats with. They just unbolt anyway so no faffing around Smile

Very nice update mate,

you can pull the door cards apart and reupholster the crappy grey look with some fresh fabric

I know the ones on mine were in bits when I got the EG so the come apart and go back together easily.
