Looks like doomsday is Christmas for me. Arriving on Friday are:

1. The alloys

2. The cams

3. The valve springs and retainers

4. The MSD blaster kit

5. The ACL bearing kit

6. The Blox red Allan key lug nuts.

Will post photos once I've stopped having an orgasm over it

Alright! My decal is the maximum load capacity decal you see on Japanese commercial vehicles. It's all made in Photoshop, just needed a place :sport-smiley-004:

Removed the dashboard for paint today. I also got new AC vents since the existing ones were broken. There was a metric ton of rust behind the dash. Bloody hell. So that's official now I am never seeing this car again!

Will post before and after pics soon. Haiyyo.

Rust ruins the party, huh?! I live near the sea and we've battled it for years!

Thanks dad! :D/>

Alloys from Darwin racing. They have an agent here. I had a friend who worked there. Fellow teg-pissa. he had a 2dr GS db8 in Aussie.

He moved on from DR, but I can put you in touch with him.

This particular model is from the 2013 collection. Not released yet officially. So it's not on the catalogue yet.

Reverting back to my old lights. Getting it fixed, cleaned and fibered. There's nothing like understatement on the outside!

well here they are after a cleanup. the fronts are still messed up. too much age and grime to cut away. at least you can see what's inside the housing. earlier they were just opaque little orbs of mystery.

thinking of replacing them with a set of chrome eagle eyes from the US. the right size this time.

the rears, however, came out smashingly well. wow. looks like i just unpacked them!

here's a before shot:

and here's the afters:

also considered giving the front end to ajitha to get it completely redone. might be a better and cheaper option than getting a front end down...

Ok, this may seem like a stupid question, but are you gonna badge it as Type R with Red "H" badges and all? The reason I ask is that, although having what would be essentially a 4 door Type R, it may make your car look like your everyday Teg with type R badges on it (goodness knows how many of those there are). Perhaps keeping them off will not only add to the spotlessly clean conversion you've got going on, but also distinguish yourself from Joe Honda? Just a thought anyhow :)

Yeah I know men. Talk about it. Type R tuk tuks are all the rage aren't they?

But actually, edseez, since I'm doing a white on white body and wheels, I thought of badging and stickering. Simply for the pure personal satisfaction that I'm the only one who didn't cry wolf! Let the masses laugh. ;)

There aren't any other type R badged integra db8 in the country. But civics and bajaj's are a dime a dozen

With the love and effort u put in to this build, it doesnt matter if u call it knight rider or some other insane name, the people that matter will know the quality of the car and the "umph" under the hood....

Way to go machang... U da man!

Ok so Darwin racing effed up their shipment. My alloys haven't come through. Ascent holdings deserves a Darwin Award for that one!

Have to wait another month for the next shipment. If I get another "sorry sir" calls then that's absolutely it

Sad to hear that. I know the pain in such a case as you are so desperately want it now rather than one month time!

You're not gonna install shorter dampers? I was under the impression that if the springs are shorter then its best to get matching dampers too, as the standard dampers will always been compressed somewhat and can lead to overheating of the oil inside, premature wear etc, everything else looks great though :D

Standard dampers can be compressed upto 1.5" without wear. Anything more and I'm asking for trouble. They aren't exactly shorter. It's the same length as stock when you consider the height of the lowering perch as well
