One day one of those strips will save you, and you'll be forever glad I've tortured you for all these years...

Are you using a black plant pot to hold the car up on a hill?

Love an RB but its crying out for white stripes!

rofl, that's no plant pot that's a TD pro race 1 ;) and no its not holding the car, its the backup for the axle stands under the chassis rails that you can't see in the pic.

not a stripe fan either I'm afraid, I still need to rip the white decals off the wheels too, too fussy imo

Bonnet catch now replaced for nowt and they gave the car a quick wipe over with a rag for me too,bonus :)

Been a long long time since I updated this one too, forgot how good the car looked over the years!lol!

Since the last update its had some more bits, again loads of wheel changes and just cranked the mileage, 163k now just over!

Added the new plate that came off one of the clio mk1 16v's I broke couple of years ago, ran it on turbines for a bit, then more recently White willy wheels with some balls out madness in between.

i'll do a better update of how she stands currently soon, as it'd be nice to have a thread going for all three of my sheds!

Right, did some more bits on the car this morning to return it further to standard.

Removed the H&R springs and the whiteline RARB then fitted the original cup springs, so tis now at standard ride height.

So now sitting at standard height on standard wheels :) Only mods now really are Janspeed exhaust (I think it is, changed it that many times I literally can't remember!!loll!) and NS2-R tyres

needs a wash next and interior needs a good clean and spruce up after the winter

I preference it modified 😧

On a slightly different note, what filters did you use when you took those last bulk pics? I noticed the pics are shadowy in the corners.
tbh me too, but I need to stop modding daily cars, lol! track car project is supposed to be for mods.........please please don't look at the phase 1 project thread.....lol!!!

canon 24-105 chap, but added the vignette in Lightroom after the fact

Looks lovely mate! Really like the steering wheel too.

Do you still have your ARB? It for sale?
Cheers Louis, she's getting a bit old now and well worn like a city sauna slapper but she keeps on trucking!

I do still have the arb, however it's alas not for sale as it's destined for my mk1 track car! Sorry!

Looks great for a leggy old girl. I liked the look on the white willy wheels, but oem may be the way to go as 1*2s rapidly approach cult classic status and original cars are outnumbered by track slags.

agreed, most are now track 'prepared' (read bodged) so looking to keep both mine standard enough to put to totally stock as and when required!

Small update, the cars been missing in action for around 4 months, my sister moved up from the south and needed a car to use until she sourced a new one.....she still hasn't sourced a new one!lol!

as such I've jus bought more stuff I don't need for a car that I haven't seen in months................. typical!

I did pop to see it other day and fit a new battery as it failed to start on her and its looking bit sorry for itself, headlights badly need a going over and the small patch of rust on the drivers rear quarter annoyingly hasn't healed itself.....what's that about!

so decided to fix it by buying 2118's with R888R's on and the billies.....for a car I haven't even got back!lol! which would of easily paid for new headlights and arch repair........que sera sera

So bought some billie B14's for it, the kits only 9 months old but I decided to dismantle it to clean it all up anyway since I have time before I get the RB back anyway!

Unfortunately the fronts seem to be corroding already though, booooo, not like my stainless KW's on the track car which are gleaming still after 7 years! but that's just the nature of the beast unfortunately!

also acquired some 2118's, not a massive fan of them as a wheel, but they came up in mint condition with good R888R tyres, a tyre I've wanted to try for a while. As such they got cleaned up and put on stock as well along with the Speedline 675's I have and a number of other wheels

anyway, looking forward to getting the car back to address the niggles and fit the shiny shinny's but that could be after Christmas now in all honesty!

oh and by the laws of CS............I break them, no pics of sister you can all get fucked

cheers

Ben

Got the car back, gave her a clean and although I won't do anything over winter the headlights desperately need a restore as they're hideous and the offside arch rust is getting worse so that'll need to be addressed in the new year. However having just clicked 174k she's still holding up okay for a daily abused old knacker.
When the arch gets done I'll get the headlights buffed and the whole car decontaminated (covered in tar spots) and buffed.
Mechanically all I need to do I think is rear discs and pads again and free off the calipers. But it's not desperate, handbrake is functioning perfectly fine.

Aside from that, as much as I love the phase 1, this is such a better daily car, nicer place to be too potter back and forth to work, and with the RS Tuning remap (now been on the car for 157k miles!!) there's just so much more low down, odyssey had to rev. Although gearing helps, much shorter in the 182 so it picks up better due to that aswell. Either way glad to have her back and have the option now on what to drive.

You change things on this car more times than I change my under crackers. Also take back the bodged track car comment, not all of us are animals. Im currently trying to rebuild one and its got 13 years of bodges I'm trying to rectify and replace using the correct methods. Show car... I mean Track car, I can't differentiate the two these days.

cheers guys, its not as good as it looks in the pics, 10ft test passes!lol! but for a daily used car since it came out the factory pretty much with a few miles under her belt she's okay

plans to sort paint next year anyway so should be gleaming again come summer if all goes to plan!

Oil and filter service today for 175k!
Also picked up some more cup wheels a few months back with pretty much as new Michelin's on and since the rainsports on the current wheels were getting low and these new wheels are in better nick, swapped over!
At same time I took the 15mm spacers off the front, popped them on the rear to replace the 10mm and then popped some 20mm bolt ons up front. Get the wheels right out in the arches!

Anyhoo, pics!

Oil and filter swap and refill, in the last 6k miles she again required no top up, running the oil from just under max on stick to just about halfway. Happy with that!
New bits:

I'll give her a bath and get some proper pics soon, once the new years festivities are out the way!

I also gave the headlights a very brief handjob......ahem.....with the scratch X and a microfiber and they've come up okay ish so I'll get the drill polishing pad into them soon aswell to return the shine and dispell the manky yellowness of fail

Cheers

In light of the new year, did another buy for the daily as well, more sheep mods!
they're not in perfect nick, but a small repair on the drivers bolster and good scrub and they'll do for me! correct 182 fit ones as well with rear access still available, straight bolt in and half leather, so perfect spec at least!lol!

How does this compare sound wise to the scorpion rs192 cat back?
much quieter, RS192 i found a bit droney, this is basically silent. will disappoint if your after some noise when pressing on as well though as its quiet then too

suits me perfectly as I have the other car for the noise and this as the quiet daily!
