Last two pics

Now I've just got to keep it looking that way. I am thinking about wrapping it in 3M helicopter tape. Anyone got any other suggestions ?

Gorgeous! Not sure if its available on your side of the atlantic but check out xpel.com. I work in the car care product industry and its definitely the best clear protective film on the market and will let the true color and flake in the red to come through.

That's awesome, love the car! I'll hopefully get a full roll cage installed in my project soon.

Time for a long overdue update.

Had tons of issues to sort out but it's slowly getting there. The engine is in and running. Next I need to fit some bigger pink injectors to suit the larger turbo. Unfortunately life is in the way at the moment and work has had to stop for a couple of months. But I just thought I needed to update this thread.

The coilovers seen here in the pic are from LA performance and made by AVO. If you mention the word AVO to the majority of people who have track cars they normally laugh. I wish i'd done some more research before I brought them. Parts of them rusted on the car just from airborne moisture and When the car was taken off the ramp one of them collapsed and stripped the thread on the adjustment ring. If you are running these you need to keep a serious eye on them. There are lots of reports of the poor build quality of these and brakages. I have now ordered and fitted a pair of Protech shocks. The built quality of the Protech's looks very impressive. I looked at loads of different coilovers and pound for pound they came out on top. [IMG]~original[/IMG]

You can just see the top mount for the rear coilovers are now tied into the cage in double shear.

All good, boringly reliable but now a bit more driveable and faster courtesy of an RCM header and Harvey Smith up-pipe, I also added a splitter in the bellmouth downpipe!

I'm mostly enjoying the improved drive-ability and smoother idle, haven't properly put my foot down yet as I want to check the fueling correction table and do some logging
