Well it's been a while since my last update so here is a quick summary of whats been going on..

Needless to say, there has been a lot of gokarting and lots of podiums including my youngest putting on Pole and scoring a 2nd place finish in his first ever SKUSA Pro Tour race!












I'm still waiting on my GC at the Body shop but it is getting much closer - Unfortunately they seem to have misplaced my Genuine STI 6 front lip so I'm having to order another from Rallispec.

Been quietly collecting a few more parts in the meantime.






Changed out the wheels on my BRZ with the Forged Nismo wheels I used to have on my 09 STI - The cheapo tires that I had on were done (including several snapped belts) after less than 20k miles. Had to use PCD adapters but even the 11mm ones were enough to push the rears out so far that they rub over some harsh bumps (well that and the meatier tires on the Nismo rims). I'm swapping to STI rear hubs this weekend to suck them back in.




The GC is still coming along, few more pieces of trim installed, new washers, new cowl etc.






Working on trying to source a Pink I badge for the grille, in the meantime I've got a genuine USDM badge that I'm thinking of trying to paint strip and repaint STI pink.. We'll see how that goes.



Also bought the wife a Jeep bc we are stupid. We are up to 6 vehicles now



And I finally got around to finishing out the cupboard I built to house my Air Compressor.



Biggest question of the day is how badly did I just screw myself in terms of wheel choice

Brakes have mostly arrived but I'm pretty disappointed with how they were packaged as it has chipped and scarred them quite badly in places.

This however showed up yesterday and I'm pretty pleased with the condition it is in
