Cheers!

Took advantage of the dry weather yesterday and fitted NGK Iridium spark plugs, Magnecor KV85 ignition leads, cleaned stepper motor and replaced fuel filter, also gave the engine bay little clean. My back is in bits today but it was worth it! :)

I'm not sure what year she is Daz, the picture was taken at last Cars & Coffee meet in Bray. Love everything about the car - the sound of the V8 is unreal (looks like LS swapped engine).

Of course :lol:
Also aided by the fact i was one of only 3 left in work at that time, i'd drew the short straw having to stay behind to cover an extended production run incase they needed an engineer..

The FTO received some attention during last Cars & Coffee meet in Bray, the photographer was nice to provide me with high resolution version of the images. :)

Thanks Bernard! :)

Got a delivery of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres on Friday for the Evo IX Enkei wheels that I got while back and fitted them over the weekend.

So far it looks like that they might be the best tyres I've used to date, really pleased with how the car sits as well. :)
The only issue is rubbing on near side front - the arch liner has been previously damaged and has been put together with rivets (actually looks like it's two made into one) so I'm on the lookout for one.

There seem to be never ending supply of FTOs for breaking in UK, might look into getting some posted if I have no luck finding them here. Have also contacted Mike in Viamoto to see if they can still be ordered (they used to be listed on Camskil for about £90 each if I remember correctly).

Yep a lot of FTO's being broken but they never seam to have intact arch liners...usually first upgrade is bigger alloys..by product of that is shreaded arch liners...
