Lovely unique looking wheel, no idea what name or brand, it does looks like the Iron or Maltese cross used by west coast choppers by Jesse James marketing :D

Exactly! :lol:

DeTune, we don't know the name or brand of the rear wheel but here is the name of the front wheel you saw in that picture: Azev-A, 7,5x15, ET35.

d, of course. This adapter was bought here in Hungary for 21000 Forints which is about 88-92 AUD.
I don't know the part no. :(

Finally, the fuel pump has arrived! =D>
So here is a little comparison of the 044 and the stock pump:

It's time to update this thread again.
The console of the oil cooler is finally ready. Of course, it has to be painted:

The ventilator on the radiator was also changed to the ventilator of the 1.6 Baleno. New vs. old:

I think I haven't said anything about it so far, but finally there is some progress in the brake upgrade project as well. The calipers are 4-pot Outlaw ones from a Lancer Evo IV, the diameter of the disc -which is a Nissan disc- is 280mm. The pads (as far as I know, EBC pads) are on the way, so these will be fitted soon. :) These things were assembled only for the photos, the bolts will be changed to new ones, everything will receive a fresh coat of paint, including the calipers.

Hi!

It's not clear yet. Do the Impreza brakes work well in your car with the factory cylinder?

Thank you d! :) I also think that they look good.

That's nice swift_cr! I will surely write it down here if we change the master cylinder. There are a few options, don't know which way to go yet...

The hood project is also going well. I think this will get a fresh coat of paint next week:

I visited my friend today. We live so far from each other that the last occasion we met was 2 years ago :shock: Here are some pictures about the meeting, mine is the graphite-metallic swift on the left side. It's basically a stock GTi with an upgraded exhaust and with some other minor modifications, so it's not a Cultus, I had those stickers made for my car just to separate it from the other Swifts. In Hungary, these little cars are looked down but almost no one knows what the 'Cultus' was so they get surprised when they see that 'hey, this thing is fast!' :)

Here is a recent timeslip from last weekend. The weight, the tires etc remained the same but the boost was raised to 0.95-1 bar.
