BOOSTED FD BUILD.
« on: November 30, 2015, 03:08:18 PM »
Well halve the problem with buying a car unseen is taking great faith in the honesty of the seller and i can say im very happy car as described and personally like to thank Bombfish. no nasty surprises which is great, cars start hot n cold and no excessive smoke at all.

There are numerous small jobs todo before presenting for mot and and couple of biggies....need to get a clutch pedal as its on the floor and lighting doing some funny things.

Its dirty and tarnished due to be sat but a plethora of quality parts.

pics tell the story i cant do much till im fully fit but i manage a quick wash.





get some autosol in here and lashings of wd40.

haha yep all printed out for you! There is probably a very grubby old diagram of the new improved "rats nest" hoses in there.  Make sure you dig it out and take a digital copy for reference as I dont think i have one any more, and you might struggle to find much info on it.

Hi Jon, Welcome to the FD community  :-\ If you thought your pockets emptied quickly with the RX8's, watch out now you have an FD  :D

I've attached Apexi Manuals (I hope).

Just curious, I have seen some one using aftermarket PowerPlantFrame on their FD´s. And I remember Grant saying that original is crap... Anyone has any info about those aftermarket parts? Chris, Clive, Bobfish...?
