    Picked up my new skid lid for 2018! Always had a thing for Matt black lids and it was a choice between this or a similar Matt black Bell helmet. The Sparco air vents won me over in the end.
    The question is.. do I leave it as is or get some professional paint work done??
    Iíd hate to loose the matt look but still love a nice custom job.

    I'd leave it! Looks savage, which is bonus.

    For me, anything protective I go in the order of Function > Fashion.

    If you can get better function cheaper than fashion, and paint/sticker/modify cheaper to look like fashion, you're winning. But that looks lovely as is!

    As far as I know Iím not allowed put any stickers on it. Some guys put their names on them but it can get pulled at scrutiny.

    Not been doing much work on the car so far this year, and to be honest it needs very little for the season hopefully..
    I did however fit a nice new Sparco Rev Seat, my old Sparco Evo xl was always too big and with me planning on loosing near 2 stone before round 1 Iíd definitely need to change that.
    This seat is quite a bit smaller but fits in the car much better, lucky Iím coming near that 2 stone target so I actually fit in this now



    There has been front end damage on the car since 2016 and itís always been overlooked due to mechanical work. I have sourced all new straight panels for the front, and my mate paul will be on hand to blow some paint on to them for me soon. I have the Cars front stripped away now and Iím seriously thinking of a completely new livery for the car.





    Some other small mechanical bits need to be done along with new tires, but it all depends on budget. I want to give this season a good run and try get in every event. I finished 2nd overall in this championship in 2016 Iíd love to equal or better that this year, so Iíll need to make sure I can be at every round.

    Track day car

    Picked up my spare phase one panels over the weekend. They were a straight swap with some phase 2 stuff I had so cost neutral. I started working on the bonnet this evening with the angle grinder to cut away as much of the skin as possible.





    I removed my aero catches from the old bonnet and got them fitted before the bonnet gets painted.





    I cut away a lot more of the skin than before and was toying with the idea of even loosing the hinges. But made a decision to keep it as is. The effort involved wouldnít necessarily bare much fruit..



    One of my mates is a panel beater so Iíll be dropping these off to him during to week and hopefully back in the car next week. I plan to get a new livery for the car for 2018 as there is so much patching to do I might as well start again.

    Just brought it up from my parents house today for a wash and tidy up. Brought it for a good drive and hoped for snow
    Have a guy looking to swap a 2012 forester commercial for it. Donít really want one but could look at fitting seats and convert to crewcab. Iíd keep the car if she would drive it, but she is a tad frugal when it comes to transport cost
