Sorry about the lack of my reply guys and for the lack of update aswell
lol bet the guy that owned the Ferrari was gutted. I'd be thinking the insurance company will be less happy about it having to shell out so much money to the owner.
Yeah i'm well pleased with the Morettes Grim, they suit the car much better and things have made it go from strength to strength looks wise as i now have new wheels which tie the morettes in even more so.
Bucko, yeah no worries mate i WILL get you the video sometime soon, i just always seem to forget and just keep doing stuff and taking pics, i'll get a vid sometime soon though, may see if i can get one this weekend actually!
Anyway guys time for abit of an update.
Well some time has gone by since i last managed to get on here and post abit of an update.
Not huge ammounts to show really, but i'll let you all in to what ive been up to anyway, ive been quite busy buying various parts for the car and just in general doing bits that needed sorting out, plus ive been on holiday aswell so lack of time more so other than general cleaning etc.
First of all, colour coded door handles and a good clean, made a huge difference to the sides of the car, just awaiting on colour coded side skirts now.
Next up was a prodrive rear splitter, no fiberglass on this, its the genuine pro drive GRP type part, very rare was originally on the SRi-Turbos.
Had to remove this from another bumper where someone had bodged it on, then re-paint it in the colour of my car and heres the result, looks 100x better in my opinion.
Also ive now got a new set of wheels, i was getting abit fed up of the 18s, the side walls were too thin for our country, i was fed up of the pot holes, so i down sized to some 17s. Also another issue i had with my old wheels was cleaning them, they were a nightmare to keep clean due to the lack of space between spokes etc.
Anyway i decided on the wheels i wanted, which have much bigger spokes, painted in black aswell
I think they suit the car alot better than the old wheels, think general feedback pretty much everyone agrees. I kind of miss the 18s but i love how it looks more with the new wheels on.
(Please excuse the fact its dirty in these pics, also wet through as it had rained)
Overall i'm very happy with the most recent modifications, looking much more like i wanted.
Future plans now are theres various little bits i'd like to sort out, i have also aquired a Pro drive front bumper, which needs alot of prepping, painting and fitting, i also got some GSI sideskirts, and rear arch spats which need painting and fitting also, plus a GSI spoiler which needs the same work aswell. Once these are done and on, i'll be far more satisfied with the look of the car. No doubt i'll come up with more to do on it, but its getting time to begin concentrating more on power
I have got quite big plans for the power of the car, in the near future i'd like to be pushing in the region of 350bhp, and in the future from this point on ideally i'd like to be going above this, but for now 350 is a realistic target and will be plenty for now. Just going to be a case of deciding for sure what parts to buy and slowly buying them all in, going to ideally need forged pistons / rods, arp bolts, piston rings, possibly some new bearings while i'm there, tubular manifold and i think turbo wise i'll go for something like the GT28RS. Also going to go for an uprated inlet cam at least, possibly do both.
When i get chance after which point the head is going to have some work done aswell, but this is going to be a good bit down the line now.
Anyway, enjoy everyone and thanks for reading.
EDIT: Just for the crack of it, hard to believe this is what it was like just abit after i got her, in these pics only mods was lowered and exhaust
Just thought i'd post those for anyone who cares, hard to remember when it looked like this lol.This post has been edited by Dano2k0: Aug 11 2009, 02:35 PM
