    MEL, Pablo....get a room you gayboys, stop writing love notes to each other on my car lol.

    Right update time.

    New package turned up from APEX Performance, thanks guys. Apex Gen2 Comfy's





    Then headed down to DAL's on saturday to get the coilovers fitted, engine oil changed and gearbox oil changed. I forgot the oil filter so will do that at home once the snow stops.

    Got the car straight in the garage and on the lift, the road upto DAL's was brilliant as it was pure ice so lots of oversteer on the way in .

    Once the car was on the ramp Pablo noticed a nice puddle of anti-freeze on the floor....bugger I've got a leak, more on that later.



    MEL & Pablo's only true bit of writing they put on my car lol



    Some pics of the old suspension before ripping it off.











    My Bitch monkey at work



    Found the cause of the leak whilst the car was in the air, ****ed water pump.

    New coilovers all fitted









    Out with the old gearbox oil, yuck.



    In with the new nissan oil, thanks DAL.



    Next up was to tackle the problem of the leaking water pump. It was just my lucky day that DAL had one so whipped the old one off whilst me and MEL went for supplies



    Rubba dubba dub, thanks for the grub





    All back together





    System bled and back on the floor, had to play around with the height at the rear whilst Pablo and DAL has a play out in the snow. Get some pics and videos up Pablo.

    Then we get to today, my car has got a cock drawn on the door, and lots of other slogans thanks to the gay lovers MEL and Pablo lol.

    First off was to get the car cleaned . Then I went and took a fair few photo's. Pic whoring time.









    Painted calipers with lettering done.



















    Next up will be to fit the new steering wheel when it finally turns up.

    Then i'll be getting the front arch's rolled as they seem to rub a fair amount at the moment, even on full lock which sucks donkey balls.

    I would like to say a MASSIVE thanks to DAL for all the help yesterday with making everything go so smoothly.

    Also a massive thanks to Pablo for lending me his 25mm spacers to get the wheels to fit, will get those back to you asap buddy.

    I would thank MEL aswell but I can't think of anything helpful that he did other than taking me to get the food for everyone .

    I wasn't but the ride height was pissing me off so decided to just take the plunge and get it over with. Fingers crossed I can run this height daily

    Oh, ok then This is what we had to contend with to get to DAL's. We did go back out a few times through the day, but only to warm ourselves back up and make sure the road was still passible...........honest
