So! I finally got around to working on my baby again!! From the day that I fitted the bucket seat, I was constantly unhappy with the seating position. The seat was too upright. The steering wheel was too far away....
So I decided to get it sorted.

First off, a nice pretty OMP wheel

Image

The bride rails that I had before, were chopped down and fitted with some side mounts

Image

I nearly went down the route of mounting the seat without sliders....but couldnt bare the thought of not having the adjustability :lol:

So this is my new home

Image

Next....remove these excuses for coilovers

Image

And, in go the HSD's

Image

K-Sports used to bottom out on every second bump. Not sure what the spring rates were on those. But the new 12/12 setup sounds good to me.

Thats all for now. More to come in the next few days.

They are actually 12 front 10 rears. But they are very nice!!! The car feels much more solid. Havent taken it for a proper test yet tho. But its not as harsh as you may think.

So I went out to test the new suspension last night and got a little too carried away :lol: Had an encounter with a curb and threw my tracking out and cracked a rim.

S14 wheel to the rescue!

Since I am still waiting for a few parts to arrive, I had to occupy myself somehow.

Like this

Primed

Image

Not a performance mod, but should keep the interior nice and neat :D
