Hi matey, yes those are my stock wheels. These are 265 Federal RSR's I made a typo in the beginning mentioning 245 instead! They look even wider because my garage is really narrow I guess.

Hi lads,
Not many obvious changes on the car, yet some things had to be done that were troubling me and had to put my mind at ease. Was going to leave the strut top repair for later on, but I wasn't feeling too good about it so I decided that these needed to be done asap.

Tops before the treatment

Prepped up and ready for the procedure

My fear of the strut top condition got confirmed after the top layers got removed :chairshot

I consider my self lucky that I managed to find a local VSpecII shell and bought the healthy strut tops off it. Here is a photo with the new top replacements. Of course all the necessary procedures to prevent rust fm ever coming back including chemical means took place before the replacement.

The car is now booked next Friday for full underside restoration to remove all surface rust, which will most probably take another 3-4 weeks to get it done. I really really missed my car to say the least but these things needed to be done so I can focus on the exterior of the car later on with my mind at ease

:wavey:

Thank you matey, your car is an inspiration to me, looking forward to see the z tune hood on your car :bowdown1:

Today I got the car fm the paint shop and took it to my mechanic who will take everything apart on the underside of the car including cross member, elbows etc, sandblast what needs to be sandblasted and undercoat the rest, after all the surface rust gets removed. My brakes will be refurbished since they look nothing like AP's for the time being and I want these to look good under the TE37SL's which are expected within this coming week. This procedure will take another 3-4 weeks to finish, hopefully it will be ready by beg June. Here are some pics fm today, sorry for the crappy phone pics I will get some proper ones up as soon as the car is back:

Had forgotten what joy the opening of Christmas presents was bringing me when I was a kid. Apparently I can still get the same excitement :chuckle:

This showed up on my door today:

Never saw TE37SL's up close to be honest, and the photos really don't do them justice
