Nice your really going for it, must have spent a pretty Pennie. Bet when it's all fitted it will be a great improvement.

Mate the mistake I made I spent a small fortune on my previous FN2 then ended up getting rid of it

Now I'm back in the FN and this time round I've gone balls to the wall

Needless to say I'm banned from getting another car for a while 🤣

The plan is to get all the performance bits out of the way then move to subtle styling the keep for a few years

Never imagined the interior would look this good on my recent type r purchase. Borrowed a bissel wet cleaner off someone. Was really satisfying and interior came up amazing, it was rank before...

Look good them mate. When I first purchashed mine it looked perfect. Had it 14 months and the drivers seat is starting to look like yours slowly and everywhere else is still perfect. Its the seats, they catch moisture/sweat from the legs and the dry like salt marks.

Tegiwa spacers fitted, looks so different. Then discovered my exhaust bracket had come away again 😡. Was tack welded around 12months ago. I havent heard no knocking so mighy leave it for now. Get back box frabricated or just a full cat back later in the year. Exhaust in good condition really, just the bracket broken.

It takes some getting used to seeing the tyres sticking their arses out from the back, having wheel spacers does this effect the car in any way. Also can you get colour coded mud flaps. Not the crappy ones that just flop down but the fixed ones.

Well I found my boot leak, well one of them, but thats the major one, how the hell does it get their, it looks like it has been tried to seal before. Their is a few other in little places which I think I can remedy, hopefully. What are the little black holes at either side it came from their at one point then stopped. It also seems to gather at the bottom of the boot door at the seems. Bloody nightmare, I ended up breaking one side seals that join the felts to the plastic door card, drivers side. :mad: hope I can seal and remedy it, I thinks thats why the guy got rid, he knew the extent of the leaks. Bloody everwhere. Thing is it was wet either side of the compartments but only leaking one side.
