👍👍 they looks the business. 

Tweaked the adjusters again on mine today - reckon I’ve got the ride feel on the rebound just right now

A rare sight indeed...Sharon normally refuses to help in the garage, but today "Look" here she is putting the components onto the upper wishbone stud whist I push it through from the drivers footwell.

I think she loved getting copper grease all over her hands...I might have to buy a tub for the bedside table😁

At last a day in the tiny garage, thinking of changing my name to top plummer, oh bugger someone already did that...

These are the Roose Motorsport silicon hoses from eBay, they may be expensive but you get what you pay for, the quality and fit is superb, the only issue being they have omitted the two stubby thermostat to radiator pipe hoses from the kit, this may just be an oversight, I'll give them a call tomorrow, apart from that highly recommended.

Silicone hoses are the bomb,  they fit snug and will well outlast the factory rubber ones, well worth the extra coin imo :thumbup:

Wow, that's some attention to detail. I'd be afraid to drive it after doing all that if it were mine...

Hehe!  No, I fitted (under duress, honest) a bunch of under-car lighting for Roger SE Owner - no longer an owner - but pretty much responsible for kicking off what is now Watford Exotics.  Sort of.

Anyway, sorry Steve for the hijack.  But you do need lights and big mirrors for that...

Yup, my daughter had a seriously upgraded Skyline at 21.  That caused some disruption.

There is a photo somewhere with the pink underglow but I couldn't find it. Yes she drove it with underglow, yes it's illegal, yes she got pulled by plod almost as much as the boys at Tesco car park...

Pah - that cars never getting out the garage again.

too many rolls of carpet and templates in the way

The carpet is ideal preparation for the road surface - when the car gets out of the garage Steve will need to maintain the car's immaculate underside and protect the tyres from wear.
