Number Repair

Re-installed the number plate and re-fitted the Re-Amemiya sleek light cover which was hanging up a little. Not much to report.

With the new bonnet, I can't run the Cusco front strut bar. Anyone got one that fits with a AD9 hood? It is further back than standard and a lot higher. I have to trim small parts for the rear holders but the rain trays are a no fit. Water onto/into the air intake... not so good.

Wangan Mid Night!

Last night, I did my first long cruise in the car since I got it back. Tokyo - Daikoku - Return on the Wangan.
The number plate started to come off!!! Luckily, Miguel went past in the newly refreshed Newera hachi-rocku and noticed it was hanging down, we managed to save the plate and more importantly, the titanium knight sports bolts. I think some lock nuts are in order. Looks more JDM style with the plate on the dash.
Thanks to Adam for taking these pics.
Can't wait to take it up in the mountains.

Today was a huge typhoon in Japan. The river was up to the retianing walls and thoughts of my pride and joy being washed out to sea were not far away.

Anyway. A short drive shows that the car is driveing well. The loss of a bit of weight hasn't harmed the feeling either.

More grip + lighter weight + cool looks all equals an impressive driving experience.

Get Down!

Coming together, lowered the car today and it solved some of the clearance issues I was having with the wheels on the front of the car. I now have full lock without rubbing, but its close.

Still have to install the side skirts also but its getting there. Rear spacers are probable 5-10 mm too wide but the front of the car is spot on. All will be adjusted in due course.
