    DIY wrap

    No I didnt remove any panels, the only thing that came off was the spoiler. The paint underneath was very good actually, I just fancied wrapping it! Big chips will show through a wrap, when I did my van bonnet as practice,the chips and rust spots were sanded and filled prior to wrapping.

    DIY wrap

    I spent a solid day doing the prep, cleaning all the seams, badges off, spoiler off, lights out and other bits of trim, then probably 3 pretty long days wrapping it. the first day was very slow though, measuring 12 times and cut once... a few mistakes were made, although no one has ever noticed them until I point them out! That time doesnt include the countless hours watching wrapping videos on you tube, I also bought some small amounts first to have a practice with. wrapping speed shapes seems to give you a good idea of what the material can and cant do.

    DIY wrap

    I've been meaning to post pictures of this since i wrapped it, was over 2 years ago now but better late than never! The colour is trenton blue i think, is a cast wrap by kpmf bought from mdp supplies. I've also put some bc coilovers on recently, had a custom exhaust, and new dba discs (which set the car off very nicely!) I also wrapped the calipers in a reflective blue wrap, that was fun.... Apologies for the average pictures, I'll get some better ones soon. I also reconditioned the headlights whilst doing the wrap, and smoked the rear lights and front reflectors with a wrap film, new badges and plates to tidy it up too!
  5. Hi, can I order a couple of these if still available please?

    Stillen Y pipe and decat issues

    I'll get some pics if I get under the car again. I dont think the de-cats can go on any other way, if i swapped side the sensor will foul I think, and I dont think the bolt configuration would match? I have messaged Chris, havent heard back yet and thought if anyone on here has a solution I could try and get it done over the weekend.

    Stillen Y pipe and decat issues

    Hi guys, just after some advice. I went to change my y pipe to a stillen as the oem flex joints were gone. I got some silenced decats from Tarmac, unsure of brand but look the same as the japspeed ones. The stillen y pipe was also from Tarmac. However after I had the de-cats on and offered up the y pipe, the flanges are way out of line. about 10mm side to side, and what looks like an incorrect angle as on both sides, one part of each flange is touching and the other side of the flange has about a 10mm gap?! Im reluctant to try and crank the gap together with bolt tension as its a pretty big gap. Has anyone ever had an this issue? Got some pics today: As you can see from the pictures the angle the flange sits at is way off, and when the mid section and one side was clamped up the y pipe fouled on the chassis pretty badly. Was eventually all sorted though, involved heating the cats up and bending them into position. on the plus side the car now sounds lovely, bit more noise and not too much rasp, still a nice deep tone until you hit 3k on wot.
  9. I'll take this off you, pm me your paypal details!

    [SOLD] Cobra and Berk HFC's for DE Engine

    Hi, do you know how old the cobra's are? was there much difference in sound between the two on your car?
  12. Thats the other thing with the car, it hasnt had a clutch yet so thats a slight concern, also the headlights are pretty foggy, looks like it may be on the inside too so might not be easy to polish out. I don't really love the look of the s2000 plus I'd rather have a coupe rather than a convertible with a hard top. Interesting about the s2000 compared to the dc5, would have thought they would have felt similar in the power department. Im having high hopes that the s2000 will feel light, pointy and responsive to drive, if its not better than the dc5 then I'll probably go with the zed! love the sound of the v6!
  13. Hi everyone, Ive been trying to decide which car to get next following some idiot crashing into me in december and writing off my dc5 for me. Started off with, rx7, 350z, e46 m3, s2000 and boxster s. I think Ive got it down to between the 350 and the s2000. Following a test drive in an 05 zed today I am very impressed with the car, however I have a test drive booked at the weekend in an s2000 but it will have to be pretty spectacular to beat my impression of the 350 now! The car I looked at today is an 05 gt with 74k on the clock, pretty good condition, no rust, a few scratches that will polish out and decent amount of small stone chips, after market exhaust that sounded amazing. Is up for 6995 from a garage ,which I think is slightly on the high side. what do you guys think I should be trying to get it for? is that price way off or not too bad?
  14. any of these left? I had a look at a zed this afternoon and might go back and buy it, need to test an s2000 at the weekend first though!
