    my LET update

    heres some pics of our flat
    the 4 gsi alloys in our kitchen


    the sofa, you can see my parcel shelf the two gsi sideskirts, interior wiring loom, eyebrows, gsi rear spoiler and a sri seats


    heres the loom, the gbox, you can see the cambelt on the table


    heres some boxes on the other sofa with bits and bobs in, you can see the camblet covers and a bit of a driveshaft and the head


    this is a bit im using nitromors on to polish up


    heres the head ive cleaned up etc and some oil feeder pipes and the blue tub is full of all the nuts and bolts!


    the f23 gearbox waiting for the short shift to go on


    the end of the block, can see the headgasket, getting a vxr one soon. the bit that attaches to the oil filter broken so need a new one (£66 trade ) oh and the trusty hammer handle that helped me get the crankshaft pulley off


    the flywheel, cant get those 6 bolts out for shit, getting a regal lightened one once i can get them off!


    well should be in by pvs, but its a choice do i either finish the bodywork, gettting the carbon bonnet back on, some work done to the wings, paint the gsi bumper, flush boot and fit gsi spoiler or finish engine and fit it?
    im getting the vxr turbo end of the month too and flywheel, thats about it until it goes in and get a remap. oh maybe a larger intercooler (kinda homemade)
    ive decided to go with black and chrome under the bonnet, the samco blue is too popular so im doing something different.
    oh and should i paint the block silver or black while its out?

    comments, questions and answers all welcome

    i couldnt lift it up to my 2nd floor flat or get it out of my boot in one piece

    and it was in a crash damaged car so thought it strip it and rebuild it new so i could check is there was anything wrong with it etc
    and a chance to renew the cambelt and bolts and gaskets etc
    while it was apart i thought **** it so im doing most of the mechanical upgrades i can
