244 wkw STRONG!! These 1.8T's are something else ;) love that glowing mani

yeah sam recons its the strongest stock k04 he has seen on the Relentless V4 so pretty amped about that. According to stealth last year i was already the strongest one they seen and this year i killed that figure again

Happy new years everyone

So had the first week off and decided KRATOS needed some time spent on him

First up was fitting my TAKATA wheel







Being deep dish and the long hub i was not able to get the quick release on without steering from the back seat, so im going to order the NRG short hub soon and fit my quick release

Next up was getting the seats in

Decided i was going to get donar seats and use that instead of welding and cutting up my car





dont know who would do this to their seats its rough and nearly threw up a few times looking at it, when i sent the picture to the wife to say im putting these in my car she switched off her phone and refused to talk to me

stripped out the seat and started





Drivers Bucket



Cut the base off the donar and welded some tubbing and bolted down the seat brackets







Mr Wesley doing all the hard work what a legend





What a fail doing it like this!!!!! the top of the seat was 4 fingers from the roof and it felt like i was looking down on the dash.

So decided to cut that whole adjuster off and just make a new base on the sliders and boom it fits amazingly!!!!

seats are in and feels so epic

















Thats it for now next up is the cage and the back box
 

Prawn

My other car is a MINI!!!!
Looking awesome Miggles!

Glad you remounted the seats. I was looking at the first pics thinking "they're going to be HIGH"

Top work!

So the write up on the cage (well mainly pics )

car was stripped then all the measuring and ideas were going.

Wikus from Goldwagen Delarey doing his math and ideas







hoop mounting point, 5mm steel plate welded between the runner and tank and to the floor













all welding was done so now was time to paint

next up was fitting it but what a mission that was with the welding out the car the cage had pulled a little but with enough brut force we got it in















only issue is the cage needs to come out again because the rear quarter panels dont fit....... siiiiiiigh but o well ill get cracking on that this week.

Huge thanks to Wikus, Chris, Riaan and Breadroll at Goldwagen Delarey for the help fabrication and making one of my dreams coming true
