Love this, didn't think anyone else was interested in SSB EK's haha.
Nice to see you're tidying everything up and keeping it mostly original, less is more in my opinion bud, genuine parts too :nice:

It get cold with no interior?? How noisy it get???
Yeah! Used to condensate bad, windows used to freeze inside, very loud (you'll get sick of it after a week!). The one regret I've ever had was taking absolutely everything out!

Excuse the camber and suspension set up, still waiting for my wheels! Few bits fitted since the last update. Got tints, slightly smoked side repeaters and fitted my Jazz washer jets. Super happy. Jets don't spray in the correct position but will have a look on the weekend to see if you can adjust them? Hate seeing it sat like this but only until Saturday/Sunday when wheels arrive!

Let me know if you can adjust the jets, I was never able to figure out how to and slightly chipped the jet while at it haha.

Looking good though

Suspension is all finally sorted, just doing an oil and filter change and it's on the road tomorrow! New wheels and tyres are going on Tuesday!! :beer::dance:

Have booked a rolling road session with some friends in a couple of weeks - it will be nice to see what it makes.

24th of April I am also heading down to a local-ish 1/4 mile drag day to do some runs, that'll be fun.

Looks so much better now the suspension is sorted, will update with pictures/videos today and tomorrow! 3 months waiting has gone fast but has been a horrible wait..

Finally on the road! My insurance let me start it early so I was driving it around on Sunday in the wet (which was fun/spinny!). Here's some photos.

Ridiculously happy, fitting my wheels tomorrow! Here's the progress on them. They'll change the car completely, I actually quite like it on the Jordan wheels though :nice:

Wheels were battered, my best mate ran them for 5-6 years. They had curbs and major lacquer worms (they were f*cked), I spent time with a file, sand paper and a D.A sander and prepped them and then my friend painted them for me as I don't have time at the moment. I got the paint mixed up to order from a local paint supplier, it's Rota Steel Pearl Grey. Should really compliment the Super Sonic Blue. I'll upload them fitted with the Parada's!

You got more pictures of the wheels mate? Looking for a colour for my slipstreams and this looks good.

We had an awesome day at Dakota Drag & Drift yesterday. My best time was 16.01 seconds, which I am happy about considering I have a load of weighty factory extras and a full interior. Need to get the new 4-2-1 exhaust manifold on, do a brake upgrade with lines, lightened flywheel, sports cat (maybe) and a EK9 LSD box upgrade (long term). Thanks to Martin Balman for taking photos!

Loads of little bits done recently, I can't explain how happy I am about how the cars turned out. It's exactly how I've always wanted my EK4 when I eventually got one!

- Tyre paint (oops)
- Fitted my very rare, genuine Honda JDM front angle plate recess
- Painted wiper arms
- Completely restored my headlights, they're now mint again. :dance:
- Removed the rusty anchor bolts in the front bumper, what a f*cking mess they were. I've now got 2 holes in the bumper - I had a small hole saw bit so I drilled holes over them to make it look cleaner and smarten it up a bit. You dont really notice them now as I painted through the holes into the polystyrene so they're dark. The whole car is getting a full restoration bodywork and paint job next winter so they'll only be there for this summer and then I'll get the bumper smoothed.
- Tidied up the engine bay a bit more, replaced rusty bolts and painted some bits
- Added some more KEIPS8K vinyls (www.keips8k.co.uk)

To do before Japday!
- Replace radiator, mines broke - keeps leaking and losing coolant. I wanted a Aluminium rad but I don't have the funds. :angry2:
- Re-weld and fit my new 4-2-1 exhaust manifold as the flanges don't match for some reason.
- Completely blitz the car inside and out the friday before the show.
- Oil change and filter
- Fit front OEM mud guardss

Happppyyyy:nice:
