Sorted the missing lock nut key thankfully. Started the job of lowering it to a more respectable height on the weekend.

 

Quick attempt at Thurs night before it got dark (only managed to half do front). Was trying to keep in mind had to be certable.

Wasn't happy and needed to drop more. Next days efforts - front only:

Did you end up with 225/35's?

beautiful mate. Whered you source that front lip from?

 

It just popped up on Trademe one day and I was lucky enough to grab it before anyone else did.

Yup that's the 225/35's on there in the photos on white TE's.

 

Next step is to cut and extend guard loom, then off for alignment. That'll be her certed and road legal again. Than time to focus on painting and fitting the aero :D

Added Ganadors. They suit so much better with the rest of the aero compared to last car:

Plan is to fix up a couple of small minor things and actually learn to drive it properly, before chucking injectors/twin plate etc in and going after bit more power. Meremere day has to happen. Wanting to do some grip days too.

 

Been great having it back for some summer drives!

What did you do for radiator fans VS space available there?

They make one for Civics and Integras. I believe this one was off an Integra (or so the seller said). Had to cut it in the centre and extend it by about 50mm.

What did you do for radiator fans VS space available there?

 

This is the bane of my existence ha. Cause I daily it, I have kept the air-con. Obviously with the limited space, I cannot run the clutch fan anymore, so have push fans on the front of the air-con condenser that blow through into the radiator directly behind.

 

Had troubles with cooling and would sit on about 92 degrees motorway driving on a hot day. Was a custom alloy radiator I had made up. Have since replaced with a Koyo triple core copper, and am yet to see the temp over 81 degrees! Still running the same push fans.

 

If a better quality radiator failed, my next option was to have radiator sit under the support and have pull fans. Have seen people notch the radiator support to bring radiator forward and run clutch fan still. But obviously on a road car that becomes illegal ha.

Looks sooo nice. Good choice in going white on white, because white cars wih black rims are so over done.

 

Bravo.

Wow beautiful! Only flaw is the lack of spoiler in my opinion.

 

Looking into this at the moment. Going to get another boot lid and run Masa wing.

Also looking into an Origin roofwing/boot lip combo.

I was looking in to a RB26 swap in my own S15, but speaking with Shred I decided on a SR20VET conversion if you ever heard what those are :D. Not a lot of Kiwis know what they are and neither did I at first
