Bits and pieces

Well Sam just shot me through a pic of the new panel for the dash they've been working on, and it looks great so I thought I' post it up. I'll add an EGT temp gauge in soon enough to complete it.


As you can see the ECU and fuse box is now mounted where the glove box used to be for easy access.

Finished (nearly)

New car...

It's ok, the 180 is still being put back together after my oil pump drama's and should be back over the next two weeks... hopefully.

Anyways, in the mean time I've become bored with waiting and so I've bought a new daily driver. Previous to this I drove a HSV VXII Clubsport, which was a good car for it's purpose (daily, towing the 180) but it was getting on a bit and the km's were starting to rise so it was time for a change.

Rally if my favourite form of motorsport, and I've always had a thing for STi's, so I took one for a test drive and fell in love with it! After some lengthy negotiations I'm the proud new owner of a My06 WRX STI in silver, with gunmetal grey STI alloys and 60k km's on the clock.

The car was purchased from STI Docklands, and bar one minor hiccup I can't speak highly enough of them. It was a great experience all round, especially compared to some places, and I can highly recommend them.

Anyways, on with the pics!
