Hi all,

Well it seems like I have been working on this R for a while (well a year to be exact) this is my second R which I brought as a project which soon turned into a big project and lots of money Laughing

Main things to date

Turbo failure - Replaced with brand new T28 Hybrid billet
Suspension Failure - Replaced with Good second hand Tein's
Engine mount failure - Replaced with good second hand
Exhaust failure lol - Replaced with cat back Scorpion system
Paint orange peel - Flatted back and polished up  (previous owner resprayed)
CV boots - all replaced
Interior - Replace to stock, steering wheel, interior seats and also repair faulty white dial clocks

Its nice to bring one back up to a decent condition and I am pleased to say its now running really well on stock boost and its a nice quite R which I can sneak around town in and the countryside without alerting everything in a 5 mile radius.

Today I have had the DA polisher out and continued with the paint correction. The previous owner resprayed the car black after it was a bright orange, personally I don't mind loud colours and would have minded it especially going back to boring black! but hey ho.

I still need to put the plastic side strips back on and sort quite a few other little bits out but its getting there now.

Looks great mate. Damn I'm jealous of that paint, came up looking great. Black wheels-black car is always a win in my books Laughing

Well Stu will vouch for this as I have been out in all weathers dying and messing my back up flatting back and polishing Laughing . Taken hours and hours to get it anywhere decent and its not a professional job by any means.

I never used to like the standard look and would never have dreamed of sticking a full backbox on an R but some how I have come to like it much more and have found it great putting it back to a more standard looking R. No dump valve, no goose drone no front mount its awesome!

If I could go back 6 years I would have looked for a stock example and kept it that way, in all honesty I am eating humble pie as I was always mocking stock R's and hated the looks but now some how I like them much more Laughing maybe its like growing up from Cider and drinking Lager to drinking Ale Laughing

Im not quite at the pipe and slipper stage like Sue always putting off getting it insured (I think he is scared of the power Laughing )

Carbon dipped would look very cool although would it stand up to temps? Would be good if it does
