Hey guys.

First time on the forum, be gentle

So after selling my impreza on a whim

*

I realised my budget didnt buy me a lot, not ive always been a turbo guy, honda never on the radar for me.

Looked at the mk1 lcr again as ive had 5, then audi etc

Then found a red type r. Local so i went to test drive it and the car was a nail, wouldnt go in gear steering off, no lock so it really put me off.

But then i found another ment to be mint.

Well i bought it,

Gt car with tints, wind deflectors and a miltek exhaust. Its not without its flaws

Needs a centre consle as it has been broken and drilles for a switch,

Ive also ordered some mats from honda.

Well today i started to clean it.

Here are some before.

And after

And thats the interior done, ill prob go over it all againto get any remaining stains sorted when i change the console out.

Then i put the car on the ramp to have a look underneath and to adjust the miltek tips. Tbh not a fan of how they stick out

That was one neglected type R,
Those sill plates should come up as new, looks like they never removed the protective film (quite common mistake)
Looking forward to your progress on this :)

Hi.

The stains were taken out with autosmart tfr very diluted . Sprayed on and then blown out with a compressed airline. Then interior shampoo and wipe down

Tomorrow i will machine polish the outside

Plans wise

I want an induction kit but there silly money

A larger rear spoiler . Again ive read some copy ones are ok.

Im going to black the rear valence, and rhe the wheels are rattle can so theh will get redone, and poss gloss black the mirrors too.

Thats mainly it.

Carbon slam plate I see :wink3:
If you don't want to spend much on an induction kit you could always do the airbox mod with a caf from the lower front grill.

Not an expensive mod to do the sills, a guy on here does the decals.

Oh the decals are still there just a crap pic haha

So did some more on the car today.

Got a new centre console

*

This needed cleaning


*

Before this id already stripped the mirrors and blacked both them and the bumper.

*

Then set about the car with the tar and glue remover, followed by

3m fast cut on indasa cutting pad
3m fast cut on intermediate pad
3m yellow top on pyrimid pad
3m ultrafina
Ag hd wax
Ag fast glass

This was only a quick doing really as it took about 4hrs. Ideally wanted to spend linger but work got in the way haha

So the results

*


*

Wheels are next on the list along with a mugen style spoiler and poss an intake

Wheels will go the same colour as the grille i think as im not a fan of blacm wheels.

Jeez you don't hang about :)
Had my polishing bits for months and never got round to it!

If you're after an intake I may have a Tegiwa closed box going shortly if you're interested mate.
