Welp, not had the best of days, did the VR6 splitter in today, one more thing to think about buying as I actually really liked it :/

So for the time being, I'll be without the splitter

That's dead on, take it looking at before pics it was cut in middle to fit ? How flexible are they, could you not trim bits off the top edge to bend it to bumper shape without cutting a whack out

Didn't want to try and hack at the old one and not be happy with it, and yea it's too wide unless you take a small section of each half off to fit it, as for flexibility, it ain't like a polyurethane piece where you can bend it into a Z and it's not like fibreglass where it has no give, has flex but not too much

Either way, had to get a new sump plug as I had snapped the mishimoto one (had a really obvious weak point), furtunately was able to get the remaining part that was still in there and got a new magnetic one that looked a bit beefier for £8, so finished the service and got the splitter on, gotten pretty lucky I reckon

Loving this man8). How did you attach that vr6 lip to the bumper after you chopped it up?

8 nuts and bolts along to hold it to the bumper, 4 on each side and it only needed a tiny bit chopping out of the middle on each side, then smoothed it with some sandpaper

Thanks. I was after a Laguna splitter, but they gone silly money these days. VR6 one looks just as good though imo.

they're deeper than a laguna lip and i liked the VR6 one because it was something different, i was going to look for a MK2 clio splitter to add a tiny bit of depth to the bumper, but just thought that splitter suited it more

Been a while since I've done an update, just been enjoying her for what she is, had no hiccups up to now fortunately

so did some rust prevention to the rear axle and the fuel filler and breather pipes as the axle had a fair bit of surface rust and the pipes were basically coated in rust, but were still solid

At the moment I'm happy with how it looks but i'd like a livesports spoiler for mine as well, as for wheels i'd like to have 2 sets if I start tracking it, have the pro 1.2's as the track set and look for some turbofan style wheels, whether I come across some TOM's or Uniroyal's at the correct time is a different matter.

Performance wise, i'm happy with the power right now but still juggling the idea of forged in my head, suspension wise i'd still like to get coilovers put on it but the suspension setup i palmed off the SR has done wonders to it, feels much more confident in the twisties now

Then another big step would be coating the rest of the underside to preserve it and also do some bodywork bits (bonnet, bumper and bootlid are the main ones).

Not a lot to comment on here, just been taking her to shows and driving up and down B roads, been doing little bits here and there.

thought to myself why not try and polish the front box and see if I can get it shiny, think it came up good
