Now I've just got to get the sticky off the bumpers, for what ever reason they had tape on them and most of the sticky stayed on

No idea why it's black but that's what I have so that's what I'm using. Took about half hour to get all the sticky off the front bumper, still have the rear too go

Dan,

Did you get your EM and dump coated - it looks great!

Cheers,
Tricky

Tricky, I didn't personally but yes they are coated. The previous owner had them done. I need to get the dump done again as I had to put the oxygen sensor in. But am not going through that unless I'm gettin other stuff done or will do them with some one else's stuff.
And Tricky have you heard anything about the drive shafts? I have a guy on the coast that can do some for me but I'll obviously need the bits back...

Hi Dan,

I phone them every couple of weeks and get the same story - "Sorry, really busy, we will get to them soon...."

I can ask them to send them back if you wish.

Cheers,
Tricky

P.S. who did the coating on the pipework, I have to get some done on The Cat. Was going to go ceramic coating but no-one close by does it.

I'm not fussed who makes the shafts, I can just see us getting this years much higher inflated pricing the long it takes. I used to get what ever exhaust shop I was using at the time to get them coated. Last lot of stuff I got done was through Mike Vine Turbos

Excellent Gordo, thanks. And he is close too - bonus!!

Also, rang AGM and expressed my extreme displeasure and pissed off nature that they have not done our shafts yet - apologies flowed forth and they promised them done in the next two weeks.

Can you hold on until then??

Cheers,
Tricky

Edit: Tried the HPC number - "Your call could not be connected"

Yeah I can wait that long. It's been since last Christmas so a little bit longer won't matter ;-)
As long as they're the right lengths... And I think I'm going to have to move water lines as they're too close to the inner cvs. They actually look like they're going to foul
Tricky do you have any idea what they're going to cost?
