Right well it appears most people have project threads here so I was feeling kinda left out so where we go
I got the car at the start of May looking like this (after a wash). Went straight to Liam in caralarms.ie and got the alarm sorted! Also it was a sign of things to come, the stupid baby jap battery died up there so we had to jump it before I could go home. Replaced that stupid thing with a proper battery afterwards and perfect since.
There was a few niggly bits wrong with it, the brackets for the stereo are missing and the plastic around the steering wheel was broken. Managed to get that for free from Jap Performance in Rathnew but the brackets are still needed but anyway........
So just after joining skylineowners japspeed decided to do a group buy on short shifters so got me one of them. Also one of the ladds there was selling a BOV so picked that up nice and cheap as well
I wanted to get it serviced and get a general check over done to make sure everything was hunky dorey with her so brough her out to Ronan in Roco Performance and got him to install the short shifter and BOV while doing everything else. He reported back with an a-ok so I was happy. Also the gear and handbrake gaiters were in need of replacing so got some new gaiters as well
That was it then till the end of June when Jay (xworkx) decided to sell of some stock (bodykits) nice and cheap so I took one of them from him which is sitting in the garage at the moment. Its going out next month for fitting and spraying so I'll stick the pics when I get her back.
So then today off I went down to Jap Performance in Rathnew again and picked up the following
I have a decat ordered as well but he was out of stock so I should have that next week. The three parts are Autobahn 88 which I've heard good things about so I'm happy enough! Yes I would have preferred all HKS stuff etc but I'm not loaded:(
Well after that I dedided I needed tools to do all the work as my collection at the moment is fairly poor so I had seen a 235 piece kit in halfords for 70blips so obviosly that made sense so
Right well I've ordered an Apexi AVCR (second hand) from one of the traders over on the skylineowners.com and should have that next week. Also to come next week is a boost gauge, oil pressure and temp gauges along with a dash pod to house them:D
Thats it for the moment me thinks! To come in September hopefully a Power FC and remap to go along with it (obviously) and that'll keep me happy for the moment. Dont have any idea on figures or anything just yet but we'll see. Hopefully the funds will allow for the FC I'll know closer the time
The future plans though are as follows
Walbro Fuel Pump
Engine dressing (blue hosing etc)
Carbon Cooling Panel
Some sort of Recaro's, not sure what yet
Retrim whatever interior I get
Carbon bonnet, bootlid and wing
Full respray in bayside blue (cant afford it at the moment:()
Wheels and rocker cover powder coated
I think thats all I have to say for the moment. I'll keep it updated though and update over the weekend with the progress on the front mount and downpipe, well weather permittingbt:)
