    Yeah been strapped for time, not much done recently
    Got some sweet ITG DCOE twin weber airfilters and made them fit over the SQ stacks, a T3 splash guard, and a real carbon fiber timing cover as my stock one was damaged from the importing process and needed to be replaced anyway, so why not bling it up?

    Got this rad Kamei front spoiler, I really like it on the slantly front! its only mocked up with 2 tech screws holing it in place, the corners fit way better then the pic shows.
    Treated myself to a custom number plate. Tried to get DOP371, but they canned it cause it was a "drug reference", so got OAE710 as a compromise. Then I see a FT86 parked in the driveway not more than 100m from my house with DOP386 number plates....was not happy, but yeah, he got cool plates!

    Poor thing, looks so neglected.

    Decided that 8kg front springs in my coilovers where just going to be stupid on the street, so bought a second pair of XT130 struts with the twin piston calipers. Got a set of GAZ short stroke SW20 MR2 front adjustable strut inserts brand new from UK for $330 shipped, custom valved to suit a set of custom King springs to suit XT130 lower perch and AE71 98mm top perch with a set of K-Mac adjustable camber/caster tops. I could have just got new springs, but I wanted to keep the stiff coilovers as spares that I could just in swap when I wanted. Its like 5 nuts, 2 lines and bleed, meh.

    I also purchased a whole KE72 front end from NZ, just sorting out the details on how to ship it in to Aus.
    Got a KE72 diesel grill and lights from Rolla Resources on Facebook. Super cool guy, very easy to deal with and package it all up really well before sending it. Took like a week to get to me with shipping only costing $70.
    This is my inspiration! UEO KE72 2 door high roof full glass drift wagon.
