  1. Thank mate, that's so nice. I did worked my butt off for years, I'm realizing a old dream and wanted to make it right just like the way I envisioned it. It was tough and a big challenge but I wanted to know the car and now I do, well for the most part. I didn't wanted any regrets so I took my time to build it and also to have the budget for every steps. I'm proud to have done it all. Cheers!
  2. Thanks Hasan for the kind words. I did spent a lot of time into small details that probably won't be seen and noticed. But you did see a few! Once fully completed I'll snap a closer picture of the engine bay. I can't wait to drive it! Cheers mate
  3. Thank you so much, what a feeling indeed. I just couldn't wrap my head around it, I was in disbelief I think. So special and scary at the same time. I had the fire extinguisher in my hand the whole time ha haa. Cheers!
  4. Thank you very much, without your electrical help I would not be there right now! Cheers
  5. I know Shaun, I've been busy but that's no excuse. You know what tools really helped me? Power brake bleeder, coolant vacuum pump. I've been able to figure out leaks on the brake system without air bubble. And I've been able to detect any leak in the coolant system prior to filling it plus no air pockets. That was key for me before starting it. To be honest I didn't think it would start. I was just like, well I guess it's ready to go so I could try? That was just after filling the coolant. 5 or 6 cranks mate, the sound...sublime. So I'm expecting there's going to be some hick ups at one point though. Already had to change fuel pump relay after a first scan. So I idle for like 20 minutes with some revs, electric fans kicked in perfect, flush the oil and filter. I need to get plates and I'll go for a drive like 50 miles then another flush. I hope all will be good but I'll bring some tools with me ha ha. After that the break-in will be next spring. Cheers!
  6. Mate, these wooded supports are a game changer. Took about 2 hours to make 2 sets and just some lumber and screws, cheap cheap cheap. One full height to work easy under the car, one set half height for like you said when you need to remove a wheel, I can put the jack stand on top of it so it's not all extended. I will also store the car in winter time on the half height to be further away from the humid concrete floor. And they also help to put the car on the taller one, lift the car onto those then to the taller ones so there's no scary business jacking up the car. I chose this color for the inlet because I wanted to match the darker grey on my cover. I really like it and in person you can see a nice speckle in the powder coat.
  7. So since the last picture, I connected everything. filled oil and coolant for the first time. No leaks. 5 or 6 cranks and it fired up, I was soooo surprised! And the sound that comes out of the exhaust, you can tell it's strong, it's amazing to listen. Flushed the oil after 15 minutes. Filled with break-in oil and in a couple of weeks, I'll go for a first drive. Just a few things to tweak prior. I also adjusted the coilovers, looks so much better. I'll have to go for an alignment too. Super exciting but timing with winter coming up and 1000 miles break-in period, most likely it will be next spring. Cheers!
  8. And... I finally put the engine back in the car, first time doing this, did it alone and it went quite well!
  9. Renewed my e-codes, full clean, billet adjusters
  10. Second update, installed my H&R rear sway bar, got it powder coated to match the front one plus calipers
  11. Alright time for another update on my project, things are moving along! First, I installed my new exhaust line...
  12. I remember doing this job, pretty messy but rewarding once completed. Nice car BTW, cheers!
  13. Wow those calipers are super nice! Great choice, looks stunning. Cheers!
  14. Looks amazing mate, stunning! Can't wait to do this on my car, specially being parked for years. Nice work! Cheers
