Thanks to Dino Dalle Carbonare for the awesome pics. You can catch the feature in High Performance Imports no.98(HPI). An Australian Tuning Magazine.
The location was Maihama Resort near the Hotel Mira Costa and surrounds.

But the car really looked good.
Performed well. Temps just creeping up when attacking very very hard. Need some proper ducting under the bonnet.
Other than that, it was a lot of fun. Hours of playing GT5 paid off as the line was embedded in my brain. Fuji is an awesome circuit. Feels very safe and it was a good shakedown for my car.
Stay tuned for some video and more pics.

Other than that, I still need to adjust the brake master cylinder brace... Forgot about that... hehe.
Drives much nicer now the strut towers aren't trying to meet in the middle and feels stiff again.
It also clears my RE-Amemiya AD hood 9 with water trays installed, which was the main reason for purchase.
Now I need to get polishing because everything else is very very ugly under there.

It has been almost 6 months since the car has seen polish so this was a bit of hard work.
Some more frequent cleaning is on the cards.
I then took the car for a small photoshoot of which I will post pictures soon. Check out the camera starbursts in this shot...
It also has Ipod and USB reading and control facilities. And it looks cool. Very simple design. Easy to clean etc.

This one is very light and I'm not sure if I prefer the older heavy Veilside one. May have to think about some options here.
New stereo ordered (MD currently doesn't play anything) so I may have some CD tunes pumping soon.

The new knob mounts without the thread and allen keys are used for securing it.

I have had my defi guages for some time, but installation has been troubled. The Control unit I had was damaged upon removal from another car, so I finally lashed out on a new one.
I am going to try the conversion for the dash to look the same... stay tuned for a DIY guide to that.

The next thing that will tighten things up is an Okuyama tri point tower bar. This has been rebranded for use by Auto-exe and RE-Amemiya in the past. This bar has a few features including a brake cylinder stopper thats built in and bolts to the firewall for structural support.
