Only got a few crappy pics, it's pissing rain out.
Offset of the wheels is spot on, they fill the arches nicely.

I picked the car up earlier as i got the call to say it was ready.
Ill get some better pics up at the weekend




Beautiful car, even though its been around a while I still think the FN2 is one of the best looking cars out there, well ahead of the new type r imo.

Getting there slowly but surely.
Possible 15mm drop on the cards, but dont want the car to catch as it doesnt now.

First dry day in what feels like forever, so got the cleaning stuff out.

Picked up a snow foam over xmas so today was my first time trying it.

Got some bilt hamber snow foam from detailing shed



Washed off



Two bucket method using meguiars gold class shampoo



The collection from over the years









Used the clay bar after washing



Offset of the wheels help them sit out nicely in the arches

Nice work there fella, lookin' good.

The offset looks great, dang I really like the Mugen fenders you all seem to be showing off.

Ha, I just picked up a snow foam lance and have some BH to play with, hopefully tomorrow.

Im glad i went for the ET38 in the end. The rears look a lot better.

Im glad i availed of the group buy from type r kits last year, i loved the look of the fenders.

The snow foam really helps take the top layer of grime off the car.

Only down side is getting the power washer hose and extension cord in and out. Im only used to the hose :D

Unfortunately not,

I was expecting them and have sent an email to see what the story is, as by right they should be supplied with every aftermarket wheel set to ensure a correct fit.

I will pick up a set locally here.
From what i can see i will need a 73.1 to 64.1 ring.
There doesnt seem to be any 73.3 rings available.

Cars getting there mate, lovely colour.

Definitely needs lowering, it looks like its sitting high on those new wheels, might just be me though.

I recommend a tegiwa manifold and milltek catback system. I'll be putting a vid up soon of what it's like so give it a watch.

You going to get the mugen/ r kits rear splitter as well? Really sets the car off.

Looking forward to what else you have planned! :cool:

That's a shame, it is the sort of thing you would expect!

Spot on, yes those are the ones you will need. They are about £4 on ebay delivered and well worth it as they'll stop you putting additional stress on your studs. :thumbsup:

15mm lowering spring are on the list, i wanted to see what it looked like after the wheels were on.

I was waiting for your video when your mani and exhaust were on. I dont want something that is crazy loud, ive been there with my other cars.

Brakes, manifold, exhaust and flashpro are on my list for the next few months.

It was something i hadnt thought about before until i read them on your thread when you got the teamdynamic wheels.
They are cheap enough and i can get them locally too if need be. But if driftworks can supply them then ill get them to post them out

I emailed the guys a Driftworks regarding the spigot rings, so as i didnt put my model car in the comment box they didnt know what ones to send.
I had emailed them seperatly to my order but anyway they are sending me out the spigot rings.
It was my first time dealing with Driftworks and i found them very good to deal with. Good communication and delivery in two days.

Ordered a set of 15mm Eibach springs, probably have them next week some time.
I also have a bigger middle brake light to fit over the weekend if its dry.

Nice choice with the rims buddy, looking good! It's not going to be fun cleaning them though with 11 spokes haha and I thought 9 were bad enough. I went with the D9rs

Im hoping the darker colour hides the dirt better than the oem wheels.

Lovely shine from your own car.

Spigot rings arrived today, so ill fit these at the weekend along with an oil and filter change.
