Big photo dump incoming. I dropped the car off at the bodyshop to get some bits done to tidy the car up, on arrival i asked for the wheels, headlignts, rear arches and roof to be tidied up as there was the odd chip or rust bubble needing seen to but nothing major. After stripping the car down the shop phoned me to say there was a good few bits needing attention and i was as well getting the full rear and roof of the car done.

The wheels were also in amazing condition under the old coating bar one slight kerb mark which was sorted easily

The progress looks great. I think the paint splash all over the tires of this car. I cant wait to see how this build will turn out.

Good to see you take care of her! What does that amount of work in the UK cost? I think here you'd be thinking of 2500 - 3000 euro's.

I actually did a good bit of work for the owner as im a joiner to trade and they just opened a new shop and powdercoating business so this is him returning the favour im scared to think what it would have cost me otherwise!

I also got a hiro racing banner and some ap performance stickers. If you need any replacement stickers @st3ph3nr on instagram is your guy!

That's a beauty, the JDM Integra has aged much better than the one they sold here. Deffo looks better with the OEM wheels on it.

Made the trip down to trax. First time ive attended a car show with my own car since japfest 2014 i have to say 7 hours on a motorway without a 6th gear is not a fun time. But she made the 1200km trip with zero issues!

Also decided the battlecraft knob wasnt for me so it away to its new home. Gave the oem a spin on a drill with some metal polish and remived the flaky red filler from the numbers
