    The wheel does look good bud - I like that style of wheel anyway. Always a bonus to be able to see the dials, and also not get blinded when you're driving Back garden looks amazing mate!

    Getting canny excited now. They had the engine fired up this week. Said it started first time, which isn't a surprise, but still nice to hear. They said they started it with just the mani on. I said it must have sounded fruity, and the guy just grinned

    Hope so. It's not nailed on I don't think, but you've got to use at least two major components from the old car... Engine, gearbox, suspension, steering, or axles, along with a chassis of the same spec as the original. So it's engine and gearbox for me, with new suspension.

    Cheers man. Just the new wings and my old bonnet / bumper. Also thinking about colour coding the shirts, coz mine are more grey than black. Been reading back through grant's project thread today, as the guy working on it asked if it had a short shifter on, and that the headlights had a different fitting added. I couldn't remember whether grant had done the usdm mod - so after checking back, yes, short shifter, and yes usdm lights. Also jdm stalk swap which I'm also pleased about as it's the right way to be able to indicate and change gear at the same time Yeah, filled in the form for the DVLA, so will print out some pics and send it off this week.

    All that's left now is to finish hooking the exhaust up, fit the goodridge hoses when they arrive, fit the skunk LCAs after they've come back from the engineering company getting the bush adapted so the shock fits over it. Then it's windscreen swap, paint and done

    Vti-s Turbo project

    Looks like a nice one. Never driven or even been in an ep3 tbh. Even the wife's old ep1 was good to drive though. Must admit I like the k24 in the accord, but do miss the angry vtec.. I guess the k20 is a bit of both.

    Like the look of the adjustable leg support.
