The whole dash is completely stripped, nothing but the basic shell!
I wouldn't go to this effort and keep all the sh!t behind it!

Also knocked up a plate and mounted fuse box last night..

Took my roof racks off and cut out a cardboard stencil out to make some foam/fibreglass caps to go into the bases. Also contemplating making different fibreglass parts.

Did some more paint work on the rims for Rayven's Blurple toy.
Painting wheel lips is actually a pain in the a** when you're as fussy as I am.
She's happy though, and it should look killer once they're fitted.

Painting wheels is a PITA. I painted some 14's not long ago and they were plain old 5 spokes which kept angles pretty open. Was looking at doing my current wheels but they have many more spokes and with my skills would end up with more runs than the windows of the special school bus.

Having fitted my Cobra seat and a steering wheel a while ago, today I fitted 90 percent of my OMP harness (just missing one mount). Also fitted new front guards and bonnet last week, looks a whole lot neater now. Cosworth vents ftw :twisted:

Should just get off my ass and update my build thread :lol:

EDIT: He bitched about it, so here's a Thankyou to Tom for cutting me a neat deal on the bits :lol:

Bought a heavy duty clutch a few weeks back and finally got around to putting it in and a lightweight billet flywheel that came from toy12s old gearbox , fitted a strider carbon fibre timing cover (actually fits better than original), a general service and a wash

Bought another swift yesterday from toowoomba , 132k on the clock. I has been wet so today I took the carpet and seats out to clean and freshen up a bit. This one I think will end up with a quad on it I think.

I bought my 9th Swift. Making 6 in my possession at this time. (3 White mk 3's, 2 Black [1 x mk2 & 1 x mk3] & 1 Blue Mk 3)
Collected a pair of cross drilled and slotted front rotors
I also bought some 14 : 1 pistons

spent 3 hours polishing a very shiny cam cover
spent about 5 hours talking to my engineer about ideas and future plans
Scoured the internet for parts to hoard or add to my IP build

I also pissed off a forum member by leaving my real name of a PM.

most importantly I hit the rev limiter in 2nd gear.... looked at the dash to see 105 kph (Cino / thrash gearbox)
