Splashed out on an anti roll bar kit this week but it has an ETA of 3-4 weeks.
I also got hold of the caliper paint so thats another job on the cards.

Still no joy getting the amp of the bloke on ebay. He has been kicked off so it looks like I will have to get a replacment when I am back off holiday.

Well its been a few weeks since I last posted, so this is a little update.

The battery is now moved and all finished.

The speakers have all been rewired and are ready for an amp in the boot.

Picked up a temp amp from eBay so that should be going in as soon as the postman drops it off.

CDA air intake system now fitted and the green filter sold.

Finished Dynamating the inside of the car.

Made a start on the battery relocation.

I made a start on the battery relocation project last night. Getting the battery tray out is only a 10 min job that will not give you any problems. I am going to cut out the battery support that you can see in the picture this weekend to give me some more room. The catch tank will go down by the side of the radiator as I found a nice simple place to mount it. I need to make two brackets so far. One for the catch tank and one for the positive cable connector.
