Lovely colour of wrap. The car looks so much better after the work you've had undertaken. Good choice.

Here's a short before, during and after video



This was done before I'd taken delivery of my Hyper Zero 1's

Iíve not been up to much with the car over the winter months, but Iíve got a couple of bits recently - First up is a Cusco heat shield which I purchased from an MLR member, I have been waiting for a new manifold but thatís another story... In the meantime this will tidy the engine bay up no end.







The second thing I done today was to fit a titanium COP kit that Iíd ordered from JD Customs in the US, I had no issues with how the car was running - But I really like the idea of having one coil per cylinder, plus it looks amazing in my opinion.









After replacing the 10amp fuse with a 15amp one as per the instructions, I took it out for a spin. The idle was definitely smoother, and the throttle seemed more responsive - All in all a decent bit of kit.

The chrome centre caps just had to go, but instead of painting them and watching it flake off in a few weeks I got them vinyl wrapped... The guys @ AutoVision then made the Mitsubishi diamonds with the 3M wrap that’s on my car. The results are amazing, I know it’s only a little detail but it’s made a huge difference in my opinion.

As we had some nice weather I decided to give my wiper arms a freshen up, they were pretty faded and didnít look too good compared to the rest of the car.

















Once Iíd got everything rubbed down I gave them 3 coats of paint, drying time was good as it was such a hot day - Iím happy how they turned out, and it only cost about a tenner!

Iíve had these red Mishimoto hoses for a while now, but only just got around to getting them fitted... Itís surprising how much difference something simple like this can make.

I will be getting the rocker cover done at some point

I recently purchased a Whiteline rear ARB (24mm), but before fitting it I decided to give the rear axle area a bit of a spruce up... I used a basic degreaser and some brushes, once Iíd worked it in I used my jet wash to clean it all off - After an hour or so I ended up with a pretty clean rear axle.





The rear ARB came with some nice yellow poly bushes, plus I bought a new pair of drop links just in case the old ones were knackered (which they were)





Itís been set on the middle setting, I was unsure which to use as Iíve never changed out a rear ARB before... But the car is definitely more planted than it was, I was in two minds whether to get it or not - Iím so glad I did now

Iíve been accumulating a few parts over the last couple of months, and this week I finally got them fitted. I got my hands on a carbon front splitter, side skirt extensions and rear bumper spats all from xtreme carbon. I also purchased a Cusco front power brace which I had powder coated red along with the strut brace turret tops - The radiator cooling panel was then modified to fit and powder coated gloss black, finally the grille badge has been wrapped in 3M cinder spark red to compliment the rest of the car... Thanks to the guys at AutoVision in Lowestoft for all their hard work.

Just received some titanium radiator brackets and a titanium oil cap from JD Customs, the finish is amazing and matches nicely with my COP kit.

Itís the little things that make the big differences
