I started fitting my fuel rails and looked at the inlet manifold and thought, do I or do I not paint it..............? I thought it looks stupid not making it look decent instead of the horrid blue.
So I may aswell take it off to paint it, as all money I've spent on this a blue inlet manifold and White fmic pipe will not look cool at all so they are going to get painted, so I'm on with that now then I can get back to where I left off.

Well as said, I wasn't happy with my blue inlet and white fmic pipes so off to work I went.
Brought bits home and did bits after work.
Set about stripping the blue paint off with Nitromors, applied and left for 15mins then blasted off with pressure washer, all came off pretty well with a second coat.

Then on with the masking tape to cover all openings and screw holes, what a time consuming job!

Well been fitting fmic so required a bit of cutting of chassis, bumper etc.
But finally braced core up ready. Bumper air holes may not be to everyone's taste but I don't care, built for purpose

Looks good. Half tempted to do mine black.

Out of interest, why didnt you flip the core and shorten the pipework right back if its going ot be a track toy?

This, and you should have tidied up the bumper bar! There's only 4 bolts hold it in place.

Because I have already got pipe work to suit for straight fit, I dint want to mess about with extra fabrication and delays, plus I would of flipped inlet to but extra work for minimal gain, yes it looks nicer and neater, but I'm not building it for show.
I just want it done now as it's been long enough so have taken the week off work to make some progress.

The bumper bar is hardly in function now as I've cut it away to make room for core to sit close in so only a light sheet of flappy metal lol, the main support is underneath, top bolts is just to keep it moving forward and backwards so didn't feel the need to tidy it up as there's hardly nothing left of it.

+1 on the bumper bar, wouldn't have taken half an hour to clean with wire brush in a drill, then some rust treatment and a waft with a rattle can and then like I did with mine underseal along with the cross member, I'd have given the heads and block a bit of a waft too.

I know it's a pita when you want it up and running, but it's the details now that make you love it later and come sale time (even if you're not planing on selling now) those extra couple of hours and attention to detail make all the difference, you're going to the trouble of doing manifold and i/c pipework yet leaving out the little finishing touches, you'll only look back and think why didn't I do that.

Now that's out of the way, it's coming along nicely, I bet you can't wait to get it on track and spank it.

Good job moobs,coming along nicely.
I did a similar thing with my hdi fmic and found it moved so went back and cut and refitted the original bumper bar.
Doesn't the bar also support the bumper?? It does on the blob.
Nice too see someone doing it rather than talking about it

Point taken, ill hamerite it later, its just the fmic took a bit longer than expected so just wanted it done

Yes dan? You gandu.
Yes ive trimmed the bumper bar right down in middle so can fit core as far back as possible. The edges of it are still there so will happily support bumper.
Its a pita time consuming job, but for first time fitting one I suppose its to be expected

Id be inclined to ditch the front number plate to improve cooling, don't need it on the track do you. Should you stray off the track the Rozzers don't need to see it either , they may hear you coming but they will need the Hubble to get a picture of your rear end.

Hehehe, you had to get that in, tbh I've done an amazing deal on my 5 speed dccd for 6 speed dccd that's had a refresh with Carbon syncros as seller is going to use mine and straight cut gears as he's into sprints etc and prefers the 5 speed.

It's all in order mate don't worry, plan is to put that plate on retention and put stock plate back on which is a lot smaller than current one.
It's not solely going to be a track toy, it's going to be driven on road to when I feel like it, I'm just preparing it so it's capable too

Been going to garage as and when I can, but just been bolting ancillaries on slowly, changing power steering set up for a newage one as classic one is too bulky for space in inlet area so more room the better.
Just little things now that's turning into long jobs as usual, but I got to stay positive.
Fitted bumper properly now after chopping a bit more off after refitting fmic pipe on it was catching, now sits ok.

It never ceases to amaze me how some people find time to do all these things ,

Busta ,

I presume with that Nickname that you actually rob banks in your spare time !!

And the loot is in a box under the gravel and the bodies are under the concrete ?

Yay, finally 3rd time lucky and my propshaft is fitted and correct one this time, phew.
Put my pidley vf28 turbo on for now till I source mine (I'm broke).
Fitted header tank.
Tried doing my parallel rails, but struggled on the braided line into the AN fitting as the mesh kept messing up, so I'll let Tim do that as he's more pro than me.

Look at the dirty car see I put a colour matching spoiler on for now

New wheels are on
Yes I need to drop it a bit (in order later).
I'm gonna take front side tints out too and big rear wing to come but for now the low level will do.
Need some new NS2-R too as current tyres are bald but they will keep car rolling.

The braided hose I got for fuel lines turns out to be crap quality to fit AN fittings to, so I've bought some more from torques then I can get that finished and put other bits on.
Little jobs are some time wasting
