    Well thought now I have actually got something to show I should post up a topic. I was going for the very subtle mods on this car, mainly audio (SQ) focused and maybe few performance bits at later date so here's what I've got so far:

    -Painted callipers (rust colour didn't match)
    -Removed few badges
    -Full Sonic punch plus SQ setup by Sonic Frontiers
    -Sonic Frontiers OEM style boot build
    -Fitted mats (although driver side one has gone abit tatty all ready)
    -K&N panel filter

    Calliper before:

    Calliper after:

    Doors before:
    [​IMG]
    Deadened, MDF Baffles and Mid fitted (not actual one I'm using)
    [​IMG]
    Grills adapted:

    Tweeter grills:

    Boot stripped:

    Boot build pics with and without "stealth" covers:

    And after it's first competition, EMMA at Auto Audio:

    As for future plans, got few ideas on the audio side (Few additions/changes on equipment, A pillar & Door build plus maybe a custom fascia) wanna do something with the wheels (either refurb or change) and remap (may change intake first though)

    Thanks

    And fitted back on:

    Also got some SF show plates made:

    Made some decisions finally, so final plans will be:
    -Remap and possibly fix few bits
    -May try out some intakes
    -Lowering springs (leaning towards h&r or eibach)
    -Genesis dual mono and cabling/fuses
    -Upgrade battery earth to 0awg
    -Dubmeister pressed plates
    -Then some install changes for next season but more revealed at the time

    Haven't had an update for ages, not much done that's pic worthy spent alot of time and money sorting out problems (crank breather pipe, cv boot, cambelt change, full service inc plugs and fuel pressure sensor) but while it was in the 2 garages decided to have a forge turbo hose kit fitted and a remap :D not sure on figures yet as tyres kept slipping on rollers so gunna have another go soon with some heat in them and hopefully get print out. Not masses left to do now and have basically narrowed down the last few mods but they will be done as and when (most likely next year as need to save for a while)

    Will get some better pics up soon.
