Smooth as a baby's bottom

In preperation for the arrival of my '99 spec bumper back from the bodyshop, I decided to de-badge the hatch, and do some general tidying up of the derrier. Me = happy with results.

YaY, it finally arrived =D Well, take a good look, bc it'll never be that shiny again.

Out with the old, in with the new :] It needs a B-series blowing into it to make it sound pukka, but the ol' D15 makes quite a nice sound! Well, thats my excitement for the month.

Pvt. Panda.

Well, as Sgt.Panda is waiting on parts (not cool Spoon, not cool) I decided to finally start work on Pvt.Panda. Eventually this will be Sgt.Panda's partner in crime. Still needs a lot of work, but im loving it so far, haha.

CTR interior, y0!

Restoration commences!

I hope there's no Pepsi cans carelessly left on the road!

And so it begins...

Old Vs. New.

First step in retsoring the sarge to it's glory was to re-lower it. While I was at it I threw my front camber kit on, in preperation for corner-weighting and setup that should come later in the month. I adjusted camber by-eye after some fun trial and error (So.Cal camber, y0!) The end result is the car is 20mm lower than it was when it was at it's lowest. The rear coilovers are wound all the way down, which is a shame because it's not quite tuckin' tire. The front however is nicely tucked... no more full-lock... pah... like, when do you ever use that anyway?

Mmmm... Missing arch liner.

Some "modification" (read: cutting with scissors) of the inner fender (aka: Arch liner) was required, its a snug fit, but I like how it handles now!

The "error" part of "Trial and Error"
