Hello all, I realise the majority of questions and mods have all been answered and built many times over but I'd like to start a thread to ask more questions and and do more mods.
I'm really enjoying the car so far and had a warm welcome in the "Introduce Yourself" thread but I've got a few things planned for the car and no doubt could sponge some more helpful advice/information from the forum as I go along.
Here it is the day I picked it up. My wife insists it needs a name, I told her I don't know any Japanese so it's still un-named...
Whoever had it before me decided to replace the gearknob. I don't condone their choice as it was put on with a roll of insulation tape to increase the diameter of the gearstick which leaked sticky gunge everywhere.
This was soon replaced with a second hand skunk2 which was like new and at the same time ordered matching car mats as the old ones were worn through.
Would like to swap the gaiter over to one with red stitching but it's not a priority. Probably get done when I put he short shift on.
While I'm still on the styling I was never keen on the Geordi Laforge grille so swapped it out with one from Cox, arrived very promptly, came with instructions and new clips, I'm impressed. Unfortunately didn't realise we got loyalty discount, applied for it after purchasing for full price.
My phone camera broke a couple of days ago so the pictures aren't sideways for artistic effect. Took them with the front camera, which is harder than it sounds.
Nice and easy 20min job but only so from reading through the "How To" section so thank you all for posting the guides up.
Still got alot planned so there'll be more photos up soon. Got some Wurth plast pt black plastic dye coming in the next few days for the faded plastics, along with a pair of Merc boot struts. Previous owner had new number plates made as the ones that are on are a bit grubby which will be going on too. Will start looking how I want soon.
