    Might take it for blue slip next week.
    I'm in no hurry as I don't want both my cars to have registration due around the same time (200B just got re-regoed).

    Update!
    Car is currently near stock and passed blue slip yesterday.
    Registered it yesterday afternoon, drove it to work today yay!

    Now to go home and start installing mods....

    First up this afternoon is my JASMA catback exhaust (the 3" dump/front/cat is still on the car).
    I'll also spray the intercooler black and fit it this afternoon along with my boost controller.
    Then it'll be back up to around 145-150rwkw, which will be fine for driving to work for a bit longer.

    I've ordered a drivers side rail for my Bride Brix, a 52mm aluminium radiator, and today I'm ordering some 7/5kg springs for my HSD HR coilovers. I'll stick the springs on before I fit them next week.

    Suspension is all stock right now pretty much except for a R32 GTR rear swaybar and some offset castor bushes.
    Next week it'll be getting alot of the old stuff back, and the odd new thing. Whiteline rear upper arms, some modified stock rear toe arms, aftermarket front swaybar and of course the coilovers themselves.

    I've got to order some tyres from Taleb for the new wheels that are going on, convert the car back to 4 stud for the new wheels and stick them on as well (still got to finish cleaning and painting the new wheels as well!).

    It'll be busy times.

    So far all I've done is put the number plate in the sheet metal bender to make it the right shape to fit in the Japanese numberplate slot on the rear.

    Wheels are SSR Formula Mesh, 15x9 -2 rear and 15x8.5 +4 front (to be run with spacers to clear the brakes, so probably around 15x8.5 -16 in reality.

    Yeah for the loom there are a few ways to do it.
    I cut the loom under the guard then threaded it through, extended the wires and soldered it all back up.
    But it is possible to unplug the super multiple junction (giant plug) jam it through the grommet (I think you may have to grind the junction a bit, then thread that through the engine bay and plug it back in. If you do it that way you have to stretch the loom straight over the top of the strut tower, no doubt you've all seen pics of Japanese drift cars done that way.
    I prefer the neat extension way .

    Oh yeah don't just cut the loom, there are a few duplicate wire colours in that loom, things like the horn and the reversing lights are the same colour!

    Yeah new number plates, my old ones were just boring old ones anyways...just like the new ones! I don't care for custom plates or anything at all.

    Yup, handed those plates in before I went to Japan.
    It's got yellow plates now, slimlines are too small and you can see all the numberplate support brackets on the Silvia. And yellows are cheaper .
    I used my angled front numberplate bracket from my C33 in Japan.
