Fitted an oil catch can, removed the spot lights, put the track brake pads in, put the brake ducts on, bled the brakes, got Vince to re-trim the rear seat base so it matches the rest of the interior (cheers bro :) ), put the semi-slicks on, got a wheel alignment, gave it a wash and then dropped it off at the panelbeaters this morning.
Kieran: thank you for being amazing... Have my babies.

mucked around changing Kierans rear seat.. took off a tyre.. but i did drive to pukekohe to buy some incorrect brake pads..

Oh also my driveway got done yesterday - 50/50 Hot mix.. those who have been on my drive will be pleased. i took the mera for a drive on Sunday, had to put the front bumper on at the bottom of the drive way and back off when I returned.. Thank god i don't have to do that now..

I did nothing as my car was in the shop getting the steering rack rebuilt.

Fitted coilovers, shortened top arms and some Nolathane bushes.
old, fat & slow - not as slow as you though.

Stuff done recently for the nats,  4 new bridgestone MY01 tyres, repair & repaint mags,  Znoelli front brake rotors, Lucas(TRW) front & rear pads, new spark plugs, new fuel filter, walbro fuel pump, 2nd hand HT leads, manual instrument cluster internals swap, oil temp gauge, new clutch, wheel alignment, S15 steering wheel & air-bag, genuine HID headlights ( unlikely to fit b4 nats )
brake ducting, inflated & balanced racing wheels/tyres.

 Think that's about it.

Lots of dreaming about wining lotto & building the ultimate Primera.  ( WHNP11 of course )

Pretty pleased with what I've done so far, considering I had a very small budget to work with.

Bendix HD brake pads installed and run in, semi slicks fitted to front tyres only (could only afford the two), new engine oil, oil filter, gearbox oil and brake fluid. Also dropped the sump off and cleaned sump, oil pick up and baffle, refitted with new gasket sealant before new oil went in.

Car seems to be much happier and quieter after the small amount of work I have done.

Looking forward to seeing how long it'll last at track day.
