Milano red

Hi guys, had my car just over 2 weeks now and I am well and truly in love! Done a few things already, just getting it clean really! As I write this it is currently sat in the body shop so will get some more pictures up on the weekend when I get it back

Bit of what I've done so far

4 new Eagle F1 tyres. (What a difference!)

Front end re spray ( Front bumper complete, bonnet and fenders)

All 4 wheels being refurbished aswel and to come the weekend a new grill off a friends champ white.

Already done to the car was uprated Brembo discs and Ferodo DS2500 pads.

Will get pictures up this weekend of everything but for now a few I took before!

Thanks for looking!!

It's the SR mate! I think it has already if I'm honest. Dreamed of owning an FN2 for a while and dreamed up all my plans so not time to put them into action lol and it has to be Milano

Cool sr20's are bolt on kings.

Best place to start I think is handling/suspension, you've already got good rubber all round get some springs frsu and decent pads and you'll be laughing around all the corners

Yeah it's my mates car but he's not interested in building it.. Shame really, I'm always trying to convince him!

Yeah I wanna do that! Is there a big difference in handling??

Respray looks a great job. Need to get the same done on my own. If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost? just as a guide price on what I can expect to pay? Thanks

Thanks mate. For the bumper, fenders and bonnet all in was 600 mate.. I think that's about right but has been my first experience so wouldn't know if that's good or not..

shame he doesnt want to build it tbh, they are cracking cars.

a fast road setup and springs make a world of difference, some 15mm eibachs make the ride better on bad roads and also improve the handling too!

and nice respray as well!

Having a correction detail done to the car this weekend also! Had a little taster yesterday of the difference it makes and I couldn't believe it!

Here's a short Video showing a taster..

Cheers, I had a budget figure in my head of around 700 so hopefully should be able to get it done by a reputable bodyshop within budget. Will wait to after winter now however when all the road gritting etc has finished I think.

Yeah, some body shops was quoting me 1000 but they were quite high end shops. Well good luck mate! Look forward to seeing it when it's done
