Just got back from Japan. And I'm happy to say that the trip is definitely going to benefit my car. :whistle:



Carrying this through Japan wasn't exactly easy. (Picture taken at a German beer festival that was happening in Japan in the middle of May for some reason. Yes I was super drunk).


Already received one package from Japan and there's another, significantly larger one on the way. ;)

I also found this. One of only two that I saw whilst there. I only saw two Alto Works as well.

A little bit of an update.

Got a standard cast manifold from Darren. Amazingly this one isn't cracked, which is surprising considering that they're notorious for being terrible. ;)

Thought I'd give it a bit of a clean up before fitting it to the car.



After attacking it with a Dremel with a couple of wire brush attachments, and a coating of Kurust.




After painting and curing in the oven. I'm quite pleased with the result.


Should be going on the car in the next couple of days, along with all of the other parts that I've accumulated recently.

Wings were fine dude. Everything else is being a nightmare at the moment though.

Took the original manifold off and it looked like this...





It basically fell apart into 4 pieces as soon as it was unbolted.

BUT, whilst unbolting it, all of the bolts snapped and the act of drilling them out had caused some of the mounting points on the block to snap off too. :angry:

Check out the one on the top right.






Now I've got to wait until Monday so I can get it welded. The idea is to build up the weld, re-drill and then re-tap the holes. Frustrating. Especially since every single thing that I do to this car seems to go wrong, in one way or another.

Welding is happening on Monday. Hopefully it'll be a tidy job.

Also got myself a Blow off valve that I'm going to be test fitting today, hopefully. And one of those JDM subway rings to hang off of the back of the car. B)

Also gave the engine bay a very quick degreasing today. Hopefully I'll get a chance to tackle the rust there, too.
