Dirty EG6

Again, nothing much to update on but I have a few things in the pipeline which will be happening pretty soon. The Lenso BSX wheels should be arriving next week some point then all I need to do is order the Yokohama tires to go with them and I'll have a new set of shoes for the EG6.

Next is to generally tidy up the outside of the car, the small scratches, chips and poor surfaces will be all rectified at the body shop their the car will also receive a full machine polish to bring back out the unique paintwork. Lastly is a few minor and small things to update such as smaller front and rear number plates in 12" by 6" which will look a whole lot better than the huge one's I currently have fitted, another minor thing will be replacing the missing front inner arch lining and the broken interior wing mirror cover to tidy up the inside.

Here's how she looks at the moment, the reason she is looking so dirty and neglected is because I said that I wouldn't bother cleaning the car until I install my new wheels so obviously its been a while since I cleaned it!

BMC CDA Intake

So I finally got round to ordering the correct size hose for the air intake side of the BMC filter instead of using the rather poor plastic reducer pipe they supply you with. The problem before was that it would pop off under WOT which is obviously no good so I replaced it with an 80-70mm reducer which was a tight fit but with a bit of elbow grease and boiling hot water I convinced it to fit.
