    Not done much with it since getting it. Had a majorly busy couple of months, but made some bits of progress.

    Spoiler's off and at the body shop to have the blade re-lacquered.

    Then took the front bumper off to fit the brand new carbon fibre front splitter.

    But the screw heads had rusted and just got chewed up when I tried to undo them...... So out came the drill and had to drill all but about 3 of them off.

    And old vs new.

    Gave the cooler hoses a clean while the bumper was off:

    After getting some new fasteners, put the front splitter on and fitted the bumper... Only pic I took.

    While I was just tinkering, I gave the radiator mount brackets a lick of paint to tidy them up, will probably replace them with aftermarket ones at some point

    The front disc hubs were covered in rust, and looked awful with the wheels fitted. So took the wheels off and gave them a lick of silver hammerite to tidy them up

    Then I went full retard and kerbed the otherwise spotless Turini Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    So it sat like this for a couple of days while it was refurbished

    And refitted back to it's almost former glory (spoiler is still with the body shop)

    Last little bit of tidying up was the underbonnet heat shield was ripped and tatty looking:

    Will do Matt

    When I originally painted the hubs on the calipers, I didn't do the face which meets the wheel and it ended up looking like this once I'd finished. So I finished that off properly!

    Next I wanted to change any rusting, visible fasteners, mainly on the slam panel etc. All replaced for stainless bolts and washers or a black plastic ones..... No more rusty bolts.

    Still waiting for the spoiler back, been to the body shop today to try and get him to get a move on now. He's had it for a lot longer than I wanted tbh. Also waiting for some more carbon bits to arrive!

    Made a start on changing the manifold. First time removing a turbo/manifold on an Evo, so took a lot longer than I expected, but getting there now. Need to order a couple of new bits to finish it fully, but it should be pretty much finished tomorrow.

    Crappy nuts and studs, had to drill one off

    Took over the bike ramp

    Old one off, ran out of light by this time

    And a bit of cleaning. Far from perfect, but it'll not be seen again for a while

    This is one of my favourite cars on here! Wish I had the time and money to do something like this.

    So today didn't really go as planned. The studs are well stuck in the head, so I'm going to leave them bee, don't want to risk snapping one.

    So I got it slaved into position, and came across a couple of problems.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    The nut won't sit flush on the flange, and the bolt won't fit in the rear hole.

    I was kind of expecting it to be an easy job, so got very frustrated, ran out of time and gave up. I pulled the turbo out since it was all but a coupe of coolant and oil lines out anyway. Blanked it all and called it a day, so it's currently sat like this

    Click here to enlarge

    Since it's all out, I'm going to order a bunch of spares, tidy up some bits here and there, and go back to it all refreshed. But that won't be for a while, got a mad few weeks ahead. Going to get a couple of braces powder coated since they had to be removed to drop the exhaust out the way, clean up a couple of rusty brackets and order new gaskets and banjo washers as and where i need them....
