420's Beat Up Baby Type R

Recommended Posts

Great that the forum is back up and running 👍. 

Update on this, the thunder grey ph1 was sold regrettably and that was that but after failing to find a worthy replacement I now have a ph2 and a daily ph1.

Fully serviced both of them, the ph2 is on around 65k and the daily on 35k so both low miles.

The ph2 will soon be put into hibernation but here's a list of what's been done so far (that I can remember):

- 40mm lowering springs

- wheels painted gold

- rear wiper mod

- tegiwa brake stopper

- cat back custom exhaust (came with car)

- polybushed rear axle

- LED rear lights

I have a few things to do before it goes away for winter which are:

- coilovers to fit next week

- rear LED tail lights to seal with silicone 

- ph1 front end conversion, bumper is ready for paint but will wait until I have the front lip before it goes to the spray booth.

- restore ph1 headlights

plan is to get it looking nice so may add wheels to my buy list but wedding and honeymoon next year so will be just looking at making it look presentable for show season, 2019 hopefully on the track but will wait and see.

Only real concern is some nasty lacquer peel and the brakes, they're awful compared to the ph1. Must be cheap aftermarket parts but noticeably worse than those on the ph1 and not ridiculously worn but certainly warped, handbrake is also terrible. Will post some pics of the coilovers going on next week. Here are some more pics.
