There you go. Parts seem to have a habit of circulating in the redline community :)

Received in the mail today these lovely goodies...

27mm Whiteline Sway Bar
OZ Motorsport Adjustable Cam Gears
and one mystery package still at the post office as no one was home to get it... I'm thinking its my Sard AFPR & modified Mk1 fuel rail (with some other goodies :wink: ) but will have to wait until my wife collects it tomorrow to find out :|

I like the sound of that :)

Got the mystery boxes today :) so i now have my sard fpr and mk1 fuel rail to fit up when i do the head. Also means i have a spare intake with 60mm TB and bored AFM to sell/swap as mine has all those bits already :)

Edit: Turns out I also had the HEL brake lines there too. But Auspost got confused and didn't give my wife the box with the intake #-o so I'll be making a trip there myself to get that :x

will get some pics up later - when my kids are asleep :wink:

So first night getting greasy. I had a spare hour so I thought "why not dummy fit the front swaybar?" Turns out I was the dummy who couldn't fit it #-o No brackets for the D links to go in (in case you missed it the car had no front sway bar when I bought it) so I had absolutely no cluie how to fit it up! :oops:

So I'll be off to a wreckers to find a cino and pinch the brackets while taking mental notes where the they go and how the sway bar lines up :P

Oh here's a picture of the good ies I got. I'm not totally sure but I'm thinking the brake lines are not right for the rear. I was just going on feel as I didn't get the chance to get a good look at the rear lines but I'm sure someone will know.

Cheers shoot me a PM with the details.

Just a quick update fitted up one of the rear brake lines. They're not as long as the OEM ones but I tihnk they look the goods in "Carbo-look" (see below) it wasn't the easiest of jobs, bashed a few knuckles & fingers, took an hour to get the final circlip off and another half an hour to under the final nut (awkward positioning and stiff as!) but I got it done. NOw to fit up the final 3 which should hopefully be easier, then fill her with fluid and bleed off the brakes :)

Finally the "grease" work has begun :)

Managed to get the other side in easily enough (read only one banged finger) in about an hour from wheels on the ground and back again. =D> :wink:

Again the lines are a little short but they clear the shocks by about 3mm each side so I'm not too worried.

I've added a pic of the old line next to the new line ust to show the difference and how the new line looks all fitted up. :D

Now to do the fronts, top up the fluid and bleed these suckers

Yeah like i said they fit but they're a bit short. I'll fit up the fronts and see how they go, them i'll email HEL to tell them about the rears, provided the fronts are fine :)

Yeh they look way too short. Look at the angle where it joins the hardline.

At full compression/ up travel is there enough slack in the brake line?

Yeah i realise its not great but there are no kinks so i think it'll be fine. I'll have to wait til its back on the road to find out for sure though. Who knows, maybe HEL will make me new ones for free ;)
