Smile My white Tommi Makinen

Hi all, I am pretty new to the forum and thought I would share a few pictures of my TME evo.

It was auctioned off in Japan on the 21st of September and after a long wait I finally got it home on the 10th of December and tucked into the shed to wait for the better weather. During that time I took into fixing a few things that were bugging me. I re painted the brake calipers as they were looking pretty tired, had the alloys professionally refurbished, door cards retrimmed and of course fitted the tme decals that I got from Lee at FCM (great quality and would highly recommend).

The car its self come completely standard apart from a hks panel filter and has a decent history stamped in the service books. The underside is spotless with no rust what so ever and my plan is to strip it this winter and seal, stonechip and paint (having previously done this on a rusty old ford sierra I am looking forward to not being faced with rust hole after rust hole lol).

This is how it currently sits,















Door cards retrimmed





Calipers after a freshen up,





Wheels back on after being repainted,



bootlid decal also replaced when I fitted the stripes,



And here are a few pictures of how it looked before fitting the stripes. I actually quite liked it like this but I had to give in and fit the stripes





Thanks for looking.

Thanks again for the comments. I got myself a set of black rs door handles from evo5d. They needed a bit of a tidy up but come up like new and got them fitted this morning. Not sure if I prefer these or the white handles but they are staying on never the less because one of the screws in the 2 rear handles is an absolute f*#ker to get at
