    next on the list is to paint the bonnet and i found a front lip off a mazda 626 that ill paint up maybe in flat black to make it stand out or maybe the same as the rest of the car.
    let me know what you think

    also here are a few new engine pics i found an ae92/93 strut brace and bolted it on
    and painted my rocker cover againt in gloss black and polished the timimg side and added a new oil cap

    Wow man, that engine bay looks clean.
    Props for the backyard paint job too. Looks really good, considering how it was painted.
    You must have a lot of patience to be able to do some of those more complex DIYs

    So basically a polished plenum. A bit better breathing there I guess. Post updated engine bay pix. Also, if you post on Australian forums there maybe you can snoop around for FX coilovers and other goodies :D Thanks.
