Black interior
121000kms on the broken odo
Auto for now- it’s had a 740t box swapped in by lupica

Clean out pcv
Clean iacv
Fix MAF bracket to engine bay

LHS rack end replaced
LHS tie rod end replaced
Repair LHS headlight

LHS indicator assembly repaired

LHS ball joint replaced

Along with this I so far have

Waiting on a reply for fuel and ign ecus

Other things that need attention
Virgos in the garage to be painted and decent tyres mounted

Heat shield on N/A downpipe has broken off at the tack welds and is rattling, I’ll either cut it off or not bother if it’s turboed soon enough

    Coated last night with a dulux high heat enamel (should last up to 690 degrees)

    Progress has been slow with the long weekend and everything.
    Tomorrow I’ll be picking up a sunvisor and hopefully painting and mounting it if I’ve got free time.
    I made a decision and removed all the stickers including the banner that the PO put on.
    It’s time to order new brake pads too as they’re starting to squeal at me. Anyone have experience with EBC? Specifically their “yellowstuff” pads

    I'm running ebc reds in the gt & can't fault them. Not managed to get any fade despite my best efforts, not much dust, quiet & good initial bite from cold.

    Visor is in primer to get an idea of the colour and mounted, I think I’ll keep it.
    Pulled the mig out and tacked back on the rattley heat shield on the exhaust
    I need to get the virgos on asap, sick of the gold steelies
  • Where did you get those steelies from? Did you paint them?

    They’re the stock ones, previous owner just spiced them up
