Dutch EVO IX Project

Hey everybody,

I'm Lķk, 33 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I would like to introduce my Lancer Evolution IX (2007) projectcar.

First I had an Evolution X, it was a good en really comfortable car, but just not for me.. I realised what I missed while driving the X, so I chased my dreams and bought the car I had always wanted, an Evolution IX.

I was lucky that I a good friend of mine wanted to buy my Evo X. But than a pretty difficult search began, because I had a to find a nice and clean Evo IX.

The first issue was that this car is a rally car, so most of them aren't in a good shape.
The second problem was that only 48 cars of this type had been delivered new. This meant that I had to extend my search outside of Holland. I have looked in Germany, France, probably all of Europe including Turky.
Finally, I found an Evo in Belgium, on the border with France. I had had contact and then we got to make the first trip. When we arrived the garage door opened, we took a good look en went for a good drive. I immediately fell in love with the car.
Then the organizing began. How could I get all the parts and the car over in one trip? Thankfully another friend of mine was able to help me out with his cartaxi. So, a week later we went to pick it up. After a total of ten hours of driving I was finally able to park my new car in my garage!

I started the process for the new license plates, I had the inspection done and within two weeks I had everything in order to drive it! I wanted to ease into this car. Enjoy the little things, get to know the car, get to know itís limits..

And now, four months later, I have started (not so slowly) disassembling the interior and some bits under hood.

Canít wait to have it ready for this season! I will keep you posted!

My old evo x



And the new evo ix

First updates just arrived...

So the first updates are back!

For this winter I'm going to change the interior of my Evo.
I have a lot of custom carbon parts, because I just love the "black gold".
The first thing I did was put in a dubbel din radio, for some good music and navigation. Besides that it I think it looks way better. What I don't like about the interior, is al the grey parts.

So I removed a lot of dashboard parts, and brought them to someone who put them in carbon. His work is awesome!

Besides these handmade carbon parts, I also ordered some other parts aswell; like my handbrake cover, armrest and hoodlifters.

I also brought a number of parts to the upholsterer to be covered with Alcantara.

Hopefully by the end of February I will have the Alcantara and carbon parts back to rebuild the interior.

Enough talk, these pictures say enough

After I partially disassembled the dashboard for carboning the parts. I started to dismantle the evo further. I don't like the gray colors in the interior of the evo, so I delivered the following parts to the car upholsterer. I want them done in black Alcantara;

the sky
the door panels
the parcel shelf
the poker cover
the a b c styles
