If you look the bush won't go in,past the 2nd plate,I don't know of another way round this so I had to hack them to suit...

All new bits...







I almost forgot, refurbished rear calipers from biggred...



Also drilled out a snapped stud in the turbo elbow downpipe.

Forged engine with some different piping on the inlet I didn't like or the missing oil separator,so I used mine off my.old engine.

After a stuuuuuuupid mistake the cars nearly back to where I was a few days ago! 
I'd forgotten to put the loom on and connect it up round the back!!! 
"insert comment here" 
Whatever it is I'm called I've probably called it myself already!! 
Anyhow, heres my refurbished rear calipers now in hammerite smooth blue and also my wilwood 4 pots in the same colour.....

yep as above

looking good though matt thumbsup
hope youve been turning that engine over by hand with little oil down the bores as the forged pistons have a knack of seizing rings on pistons if they have been left standing for any period of time

I gave it a go,but I didn't know which plugs went where so to be sure and re-learn it all ,I dropped the engine,took about 2-3hrs all works been done on my own.
I wish I'd known about the pistons,ah well a few more days won't make a difference now.

A couple more pics...

Picked these up from tunerfest to cheer me up a bit more individual styling...


Front set up, a few new bits...


New OE discs and pads in fully refurbished calipers.


So after holding my breath and starting her up..Crank,crank,crank, crank, bang and to life she goes!!
Then a massive oil leak as the turbo's oil return pipe clips wasn't holding pressure :-(
So in daylight here it is....


I've gone for the retro orange side repeaters for a change.
I've always got clear if I want to swap back.
