Well look at mikes car for example lol
Decided to fix my bumper that I butchered! Will use the new charge speed lip I have on the green one.
Reason I'm going to fix this one is I found that this bumper fits better.
First stage was to glue in new plastic in the back of the bumper, them isopon p40 glassed up the holes.
I'm also thinking of smoothing off the number plate holes.
Recon you can glue mine back together? Lol
I'll give it a go
Filled and smoothed the number plate holes.
Sanded the bumper and smoothed out rough edges.
Waiting on p38 filler to skim in the imperfections, then more sanding
Bumper is still being prepared for paint, it has to take a back seat for a few weeks as our family car's high pressure fuel pump failed last week
They're stupidly expensive
Anyway picked up a little k11 micra as a daily, which is a right laugh! Some coilovers and basic suspension mods will make it a cracking car.
Back to the ek9!
Nothing much to update, got some chopped fingers lol
And I've started re fitting the rear plastics around the rollcage.
I just need to source some door cards now, if anyone knows of any that would be great.
Filler finally going on.
The booth lol flat back tomorrow and see what it's like, then more primer probably.
looking good. id be pleased with that!
Yeh I'm happy so far, will look better in nh-0
Righty I've decided that I'm not going to be able to do anymore trackdays this year, so I've started on improving the car for next year.
I've got 3 main things I want to get done.
Firstly is to sort the interior out, make it an nicer place to be.
Second project is to get my intake temperature's down.
My Intercooler is quite small so the plan is to replace it. So I've taken the front off to measure up this weekend to see what I can fit, the crashbar will go on a big diet!
I've done a fair bit of research into what Intercooler to get, i've 2 coolers in mind, both Mishimoto. Either the S line or the R line. Going to give them a call tomorrow.
Whilst I'm sorting the front bumper and Intercooler, I'm also going to sort out an intake for the turbo.
My plan is to take a feed straight from the front here.....
Using a 3"to 4" 90 degree straight off the turbo
Going straight forward to the front bumper with a 4" velocity stack as the mouth. May even run filterless tbh.
I'll also be making new larger boost pipe to the inlet of the Intercooler.
And finally I need to replace the suspension bushes on my front bottom arms. Any recommendations on polybush kits for them?
So will have updates coming soon !
new turbo will bring those temps down nicely
In time in time! Need to sort all this before a bigger turbo. I'm going to push mine to the limit first
New Intercooler is on its way, I spoke to Mishimoto today about what cooler will suit my needs and the S-line cooler was most suited.
Got to work on the crash bar!
Do I keep the lip black or paint white?
Black looks cool tbh!
I would go for all white if you can
I was thinking all white but not sure, my Dad thinks all white too.
Few little bits coming in for the intake / new Intercooler. Intercooler should be here thisafternoon fingers crossed!
4" velocity stack, 3" to 4" 90degree hose and a 60mm to 76mm reducer.
loving the Vstack! i have some crazy idea for an airbox on my car but we'll see if it developes into something or not.
