Lovely looking motor oak and hope you are pleased. I was looking for a TS originally but found the right PB.

I noticed another thread you've posted about dropping the bonnet a tad. Mine sits higher and i am assuming​ as you set it's those rubber stoppers. I don't know if it drop it though as it may cause rub? Might not but dunno.

Really excited to see this take shape as some of the modifications look similar to what i am planning. Have fun :)

Cheers, yh when I dropped the rubber bits down a bit I put some padding around the shut lines just invade I dropped it to far and slowly closed the bonnet but it now sits perfectly imo, and i haven't noticed any high engine or oil temps, so I can happily say that the rumour it is to have more air into the engine to keep it cool I'd say is a myth. 

 

A small update, fitted these today 

 

IMG_1860.JPG

 

only something small mall like I say, I plan on having the alloys re-powder coated next year, I also have to rear wiper delete to do but currently looking for a guide on how to do it 🤔

Apart from that she needs a clean already a little dusty sort that out tomorrow I think

I wouldn't de-wiper dan as the back gets covered in crap when it's bad weather

It's just a little un-appealing

The rear of the ST's gets particularly dirty & wet because of the shape of the spoiler.
Good for aerodynamics but bad for crud.
Also guarantees you get a shower when you jetwash the back window.

Well I've got a few things on order and had a day off today so have her a quick wash, applied wax last week so much of it just washed off m, wanted to top up the sealant but rain stopped play so will do that tomorrow. Got a couple of jobs to do, tinting the rear bumper reflectors and also my driver door under sider rubber has come off so need to reattach that 

IMG_1882.JPG

Not many things to report, but fixed the driver door weather seal rubber, re-sealed the paint work, and gave the chipex kit a go on the old stone chips here and there, works well and blends in well, but I can see it taking a few applications to fully recover the chips to the same paint depth again but patience. 

Also tinted the rear reflectors sorry for bad photos when I next use the car I'll grab a bette photo 

IMG_1887.JPGIMG_1888.JPGIMG_1889.JPG

used a light smoke tint nothing serious but went well :) 

O and removed the vinyl on the front bumper as I wasn't a fan 

And removed the sound deadnening stuff under the bonnet, kept all the clips etc in case it's a bit more noisy

IMG_1893.thumb.JPG.919cdaaf5f128a9a73379fd2e31aae92.JPGNew photo of the rear lenses tinted, and also the much loved fried egg bulbs have been replaced, Q5 cree led reverse, and new side, dipped and full beam all to give a much brighter and further night vision - a little whiter but non of this super white and you can't see. 

Looking to get a set of aftermarket headlights next year and HID them or I'll visit SJ Conversion for a full upgrade :) anyway photos

Does the ST-2 have reflector lenses for the headlights? Can't tell from the picture but if they are I would recommend getting a full upgrade with projector lenses. The beam pattern from an HID bulb in a reflector lens is horrendous, so much scatter and no defined kick off to them.

Car looks amazing, looking forward to seeing more.

Cheers for the comments :) 

and yes to answer above they are reflector headlights, I'm planning on going to SJ conversions and getting him to completely redesign my headlights for bi-xenons and some fancy other bits I wouldn't put hids in non projector headlights, I've been blinded by people with them so I wouldn't do it to others

 

this is what I'm going for

First attempt at pin striping didn't go to bad I don't think and the red sets it off a bit rather than plain black or going for the same colour as the car just makes it stand out a little bit more! Need to do the pin striping on the front splitter but that will be next weekend now.

So my new ITG induction system came today, quickly before work tonight I've wrapped the intake pipe in some aliminuim plated fibreglass heat reflection wrap stuff or other, supposedly 95% heat reflection, was suggested to do it by the guys at TK Performance, after some data logging their test car intake temps dropped by almost 15'C after wrapping theirs so for £20 I'm In, just need to fit it all tomorrow - my Forge kit will be for sale after if anyone's interested

Tidy looking car! Great photos. It looks like there is a little negative camber on the rear wheels, although it may just be the camera angle and/or my tired eyes! I do think you would get away with another 5-10mm on the rear and you may be right about the fronts come MOT day. Saying that though it depends on where you view it from, from the front it looks close but from above it looks absolutely fine

Thank you Jonro, yes there is some slight negitive camber on the rear not a great deal only 3 degrees id estimate, its a close one im not sure if i should reduce the fronts back down to 15mm spacers, but in certain angles the fronts are spot on, its the tyres as they have the rim protector lip fitted it looks like they are poking out from the arch but the side wall is pretty much bang in line with the arch, i might have to get 25mm's for the rears as of yet im happy with it how it is

Up nice and early after being on nights last night, couple of hours sleep but thought I'd better get up and get on with the day, change the intake system and give the car a deep clean inside and out! So here's the before and after photos of the intake - the old forge one is for sale in the sale section and eBay 

before

IMG_2090.thumb.JPG.ab3091c6479b476729ea081bb2b19825.JPG

and after, now there is a quieter suction noise, but it holds revs a little better, and you can now here the exhaust a little more, the DV has become a little quieter as well.

IMG_2093.thumb.JPG.6fa84afd86c3ad8313a176aac6da8041.JPG

next the clean started inside but no photos so here's the end result after 6 long hard hours at it :)
