Fitted the new fog covers this morning.


Looking sikk BPR from strength to strength

Can't wait till my Xxr's land hopefully Monday

Cheers for the nice comments boys. Few more little things to do before she's ready for the stand at Trax.


Torque Pro captured 374bhp on WOT the other day.

Cabin filter? How do you access that then?! Might take a look.
I spent £150 replacing some fog covers that were nicked last month and had the airbag recall done. On closer inspection the **** that nicked the covers made a bit of a mess on the bumper too 😠 and the colour match is a bit off as these are new and my car's almost 10. How much would a bumper respray cost?

Unscrew the glove compartment and take that out, it's all behind there, if it's a bug. Can't imagine it's much different on a blob or Hawk.

On the blob exactly the same, glove box out, undo a wire or two just to make it a bit easier and simple swap over. Should be no more than a ten minute job.

I took one look at the birds nest and just went “nooooooooooooooope”. Good luck with it though, will be good to see it all done when it’s neat and tidy.

It would be so much simpler without the Clifford alarm wiring being mashed up and tangled in everything. Need to have a look online see if There is a guide to removing it so I can tidy it up.

Looking a bit tatty now you mention it, another for the list.

Repsprayed the front grill on sat, while it was off I replaced the rad holder bolts as they were rusted on, so broke them off, re drilled and replaced with stainless bolts with nylocks on the underside rather than re-tapping the metal.



Next up is the snorkel bolts next week to re-do.

Over the past few weeks I have fitted an RCM baffled sump plate, HSD Monopro coilovers set up and corner weighted (being swapped out for Nitron hopefully over the next three weeks,) CL RC5+ pads all round and GodSpeed grooved discs. Motul RBF660 brake fluid, Mobil 1 10w60 oil change , new box and diff fluid. Low mileage PAS pump fitted with new belt and fluid and a coolant flush and refill. Federal 595RSR tyres to shred until next years ring trips and I fit something a little more serious.


treating my self to two days of spa trackday soon after my 24hr race

Fitted the rest of my bespoke STI stickers to the car to match the rest before I went to Trax this weekend.






Arrived at Trax the same time as Matty in his 500bhp Supra engined 3 door monster (Soon to be 1200bhp).
