Although this 95 is incredibly clean and we want it to stay this way, Jim has been underneath it, scrubbing, cleaning because he bought a Rust Buster Epoxy Kit in Silver Aluminium which is not far off

The intention on arriving at Jimmer's was to get a glass out respray on this 94, take parts from the 95 LWB donor such as the keyless system and the digital a/c but things haven't planned out that way

UPDATE :- After a long cv19 blamed delay, I am informed my new Work wheels are in the country. This post brings things up to present day, I have chosen this shape of quad exits and slash cut, I h

Even the underneath looks great, think the powder coaters have done a great job, this was not touched be me so does still have the stippling.

Assembled the throttle bodies and linkage, the new gaskets just sat a little proud so I had to give them a little trim.

The cable guide looked a bit shabby so I rattle can sprayed it and yes it will just be seen if you peer in the throttle cable cover opening :cool3:.

A little update to this, I am booked in at Zee Dents this coming Monday, the plan is to work together and fit all these goodies mentioned in this thread from 10am, I will also be there on the Tuesday as well, a sort of contingency day if you like.

 

Of course lots of pics will be taken along with coffee and cake consumed......can't wait :sweatdrop:.

Great,

 

Lee's got my engine doing a rebuild so do us a favour and take some pics of it for me as his camera on his phone is pants.

 

Cheers

Having spent 2 days working with Zee Dent in Shrewsbury all my bling bits are now on.

 

Going to be pic heavy a little later but I'll start off with these, now chrome plated Tein tension rods that I bought in the green coloured state from Baz, removed are the polybush stock ones, decal bought seperately and attached to identify.

Next the Driftworks front upper adjustable camber arms, these were bought from Banzai Breakers, so thank you Paul.

 

Immediately the car felt tighter and precise with both these added.

Here we go then, first one I took down at Lees after the work was done, it started no bother :wink:.

Another taken at Denty's.

Now back home and taken on my drive, the fuel filter was gold and didn't match so it was sprayed whilst it was off with what I had, wish I'd of taken a metallic grey in a rattle can I have but never mind it's not too bad.

You can see the coil pack brackets in this shot that I got from Ceejay :thumbup1:.

Nice and flat Metallic Grey (Gunmetal) powder coated plenum.

 

DSC03212.jpg

 

Powder coated Chrome Silver colour - much much better than polishing them.

 

DSC03213.jpg

 

Some metallic silicone boost hose and of course the chrome silver again powder coated balance bar. Also my bespoke made decal on polished plinth.

I could perhaps look into doing something with the timing cover but for now I am pleased how it's all turned out and my colour choices, hope you like.

I recon carbon dipped timing covers and a std top throttle cover again carbon dipped would look the *****x on that setup

 

Not a fan of the carbon dipping Ian and certainly not going back to using a standard throttle cover.

 

Forgot to say.....Lee of course plugged it in and having set the TPS, I then had the all clear with code 55.

 

Lee also gave it an oil and coolant change as you would expect :cool3:.

Nice work! Did Lee charge you for sleeping in his garage?

 

That's another thing I forgot to say, he did offer me his couch and an evening meal but I declined and booked myself in at the fabulous tremendous value for money brand new Premier Inn in Shrewsbury. Lee kindly dropped me there after work on the Monday when I checked in. He then collected me after check out at 10am next morning after I had the eat all you can full English of course !!

 

Superb all round service, thank you Lee.

Looks awesome buddy!!

 

Thats one of the colours I was thinking of having my plenum done. How much did it cost if you dont mind me asking?

For the powder coating, did you have to take screws to put in the holes so the threads didn't get filled up? And did you have to cover the gasket faces?

 

I didn't do any masking up myself as the place I took it blasted it first and then they did mask, suppose if you ask for it back after a blast they will allow you to prep all you like, I would advise putting bolts in a turn as the coating does hinder some of the bolts starting but a twirl with a tap soon sorts it. The gasket faces were masked up yes, but again I didn't do.

 

 

How much did it cost if you dont mind me asking?

 

Please bear in mind that I do know the company personally, rocker covers, balance bar and the plenum cost me £150.00. Gauging off that the plenum cost £70.00 perhaps.
