I finally got a new tailgate on just to seal it up for now, eventually obviously i want to swao the window out to my cream boot but im struggling to find someone/somewhere to do it for me.

big thanks to KMP, now my shits all sealed up and dryed out, also a little bonus it came with all the bits n bobs including a mad tyte jDm 'integra' brakelight.

the good weather on saturday spured me on to desperatly get something done on the teg but i cant do anything until i get parts Sad

i thought id give it a wash, the paint is FUCKED, i need to get it machine polished, im even thinking of buying one.

the interior and engine bay paint is still glossy fresh cream though, iv re-discovered the potential, im stoked for this build now.

If your after a machine polisher, a decent one not a halfords/Argos piece of shit cleanyourcar.co.uk do some good deals, it's where I got mine from. If you didn't wanna buy one though let me know and I can sort you a price and can come to you if you want it sorting before your on road with it.

nice one, well it wont be for a long time yet but when the time comes i may well be intouch, its really bad though, feels like sandpaper!

I kinda wanna do it myself just for the pleaseure of doing it, it will be such a huge difference.

Il see how i feel when the time comes though bud

nice one, although tbh by the time its on road i should have my proper rims, the 18's are just so i can roll it while on the drive

would be cool to see what they looked like though.

Iv got one of the hubs on tonight, passenger front, coated the disc in oil to stop rusting, and taped up the stud threads to stop any corrosion (i know, i was just being anal).

The drivers side front still has the lower arm attatched with a rounded nut, im struggling to get it off, any ideas?

Tried hammering on a 16mm socket (its a 17mm nut) with no luck and blowtorched it as much as i could without melting the balljoint boot.
Then i tried grinding two flat sides to it and getting the mole grips on, still no luck Sad

I thought about that too but I'd rather keep the ball joint in there, it's good condition.

Il see how I get on tonight and take it from there

dont give up on it, now the weather is looking up just sort yourself out some good tools (if you dont already) and its a pleasure to work, i love it now for some reason before it felt like a chor.

After further abuse of the front LCA nut i had to resort to cutting it off and look at getting the ball joint replaced, after i cut it off i managed to take all my anger out on hammering the old ball joint out, haha.

got a new pair on the way for a good price and ben @ emperor performance will press the new ones in for a good price.

also have some new rear trailing arm bushes on the way, once these are all in i can sit it on the floor again!

Right, today i cracked on with getting the hub swap ready to fit;

As i have a pair of new ball joints on the way for the front i smacked the other one out ready.



Then started on the rears, the hubs/trailing arms were seemingly cut out of the donor car with half the LCA's still attatched with shocks and half the camber arms still attatched and half the toe arms still attatched.
For those of you who know how much of a bitch these bolts are to remove ON the car you can imagine the greif i had getting them free when its off the car, me and gaz (the guy i got my s14 off) wrestled with them for a couple of hours and finally got the hubs/trailing arms stripped of the offending arms.

As i have a pair of new trailing arm bushes on the way i also smacked the old cut ones from the trailing arms, alot easier than i remember it being for some reason :s


Anyway, next up im gunna clean them, paint my calipers my trademark gold (STILL have the same can of hammerite from my first honda LOL) and get the discs covered in oil to keep them from rusting.

Sorry i didnt get any pics, too busy cracking on with it, i will next time i promise
