Looks lovely.

What d'you mean by 'Dreaded steering hose'? Saw someone mention it in an ad aswell before.

Also, with the dash lights, did you fit LED type and have them fail on you?

i say dreaded because it one serious pain in the ass to do
6 hours of intensive work and im a experianced mechanic and found it hard to do
you have to take off alot and i think you should take subframe off to get acess to the screw that hold pipe in rack but i managed to use a chisel to undo bolt and undo with a pair of small mole grips and t20 bit
trust send to garage could not to it on your drive unless youre a hero

led bulbs in dash resisters kept going so i put standards one in the would put a epleptic in a fit the flashed so much

Good work so far, keep it up.

Led,s in the dash can have serious consequences with the board in the console, some work, some don't that's the chinks for you.

Have you done the plugs yet? If not have a set j gapped and indexed, it makes a HUGE difference to power on the 220

Do you have any plans for tuning?
I DONT SPECIALISE IN ONE THING, I HAVE PASION FOR EVERYTHING
