Bringing the RB 182 to its former glory

Thanks @DavidDave for reminding me to stick this into the 'Projects' section ;)

I bought this little RB back in July 2021, after wanting one in this colour for so long, especially with factory comp stripes!
I purchased it off a good mate of mine who wanted rid after not using it as much as he wanted.

The paintwork overall isn't too bad for a car this age. A couple small trolley dents around the door which are hardly noticeable at first glance, but apart from that she's pretty clean.
It definitely could do with a cut and polish though... o_O

5-6 months ago it was on 113k miles, now just approaching 123k... Christ, I do a lot of mileage :/
Even though the mileage is a tad high (thanks to me), every stamp in the book is there, along with a folder bulging with history. From MOT's, Tax discs, parts, and service invoices.

It does have a few aftermarket bits fitted already, such as the PMS shifter, KTR intake, lowering springs, and a custom longlife exhaust.
I'm looking to flog the PMS though, as my daily driver it gets soooo annoying on the motorway every day munching up the miles. Gives me a bleeding headache lol

I've just put a Compbrake big brake kit on it, and picked up a nice Scorpion exhaust earlier today. Hoping to get that fitted next week!
I have it booked in to have the lower arms and front dampers done next week too. Should be a lot smoother on the road then...

Pics below, hope to attend a few events this year anbd meet some new faces:)
