nice, did you buy the calipers painted or send them away for refurb?


I know a man who knows a man.

Bought off an ST225 Specialist Mechanic friend up north... He stripped and took to a powdercoater who I have used before. Returned to mechanic who rebuilt and sent to me!

Kitestetico.uk supplied it off eBay.

Looked rough when it arrived... But I'm no body shop technician.

The guy who is doing my paintwork said it was very poorly made... Needed too much work to prep to make it worthwhile.

Very happy with the finish... Was quick too. Popped the grills off, keyed up, cleaned with spirits and started spraying. Used some stuff from B&Q... Weirdly it's the same brand as I used to paint my sons walls (Valspar - for plastic, not walls). Goes on easy and looks nice.

Also popped into the body shop who told me my new spoiler is a piece of crap and would take ages to make presentable. Que angry message to eBay man.

Whilst out I also popped into Ford and asked about jacking point covers... £20 each! Damn.

the zorst is looking good fella


Cheers dude! Feeling the pain this morning. Maybe crawling around under a car was not the best idea for a back injury!!

So started the day well... Back felt good. It was decided that I will tackle the zorst.

Popped over to my Dads house to grab the ramps... Oh dear... They are missing (Maybe stolen along with a cast iron bath).

So headed back into town to Halfrauds... Luckily had a 13% off voucher. Picked up a set of ramps for £34.

Fought the traffic home... Now 13:30!!

Managed to get the car up onto the ramps and had a gander. First two bolts on one flexi came off with some abuse... But the other 2 stuck fast. Out comes the angel grinder... Free at last.

Slipped the mounts off... Chopped the rear pipe just before the anti-roll bar and off it came. (2 hrs later).

The JP system was offered up, mounts attached and loosely bolted together... It flew on. Nipped tight and tips popped on.

Turned the key and got a nice deep burble. Few revs and some pops. Very happy. Not able to take it on the road just yet due to painkillers zoning me out.

Got a before vid, but not got an after yet.

Think I may upgrade some of the mounts as the very back section catches on the suspension. Think the JP weighs more so puts more stress on the rubber mounts.

Have you got the exhaust fitted yet mate? We need a sound video for proof :D


Unfortunately not... Injured my back at work on Tuesday night... Been signed off on the "Pat and Mick" for 2 weeks.

Could hardly stand yesterday... But today feel bit better. May try crawling under my motor tomorrow if all is well. The Doc did say to stay active!!

Will defo get a before and after vid done.
