    So after a bit of cutting, a bit of welding, a bit of sanding and a bit of painting, we have this:



    After i make my trek out to vicroads kew headquarters tomorrow, I'll come back and bolt the new intake on, and start her up for the first time in oh 1.5 months? lol.

    Still to do:
    - Change oil (Wednesday i guess)
    - Change rad fluid (also wed)
    - change WTA IC fluid (see above 2)
    - Fix Dashlights (see above 3 )

    The car has come back from the panel beaters with the large spots of rust above the windscreen fixed.



    The car had a large exhaust leak coming from the flex pipe - that has been repaired also.

    It seems the last thing to do is to get it tuned again.

    Will get pics of the thing with the grille re-attached in all it's glorious whiteness :thumbup:

    Note: will fix wonky front bar... and that front quarter panel... when I can be bothered..

    Just had my new steering wheel dropped off by the courier

    Momo - Competition - I know, I'm not a big fan of the yellow MOMO but the previous version didn't have that - nothing a little black texta can't fix!

    I got it because
    1. perforated leather
    2. my old wheel was a knock off of it, so they're exactly the same size/shape wise - momo wheel weighs a frakload less tho!

    Thanks for all the positive comments guys!

    So the car is booked into Ringwood Performance Exhausts to get a hi-flo 2.5" cat put in - this should be the 'final' step in the exhaust setup - I never realised the exhaust was cat-back till recently.

    Its not quite cat back. Its a full system in 2 parts.
    The extractors are Hurricane brand 4-2-1, with a 2.5" outlet, and the flexpipe similar back to the cat.
    The exhaust rearward of the cat was replaced when i upgraded to the GZE as it was a 2" exhaust, and was also noisy as all feck.
    The new section was done at Ringwood in 2.5" with a Lukey SuperTurbo muffler.
    The reciept will be in that BIG file of documentation.
