Been a little while since i updated this. Got the Coilovers installed a few weeks ago.
Currently sitting around 105mm to chassis rails with 20mm or so adjustment left. Couldnt go lower for alignment and clearance reasons.

Bought a torsen lsd out of a NA8C. It was an absolute prick of a thing to swap (so many seized bolts/nuts) but it was well worth the effort.

Got a rollbar/style bar/whatever you class it as.

Had a few days off work(boss being a jerk with hours) so did a bit of tidying up of the car.

-Installed a fusion 8" sub in the boot

-Replaced door speakers with 16cm pioneers i had lying around

-Performed foamectomies(sp?) on both driver and passenger seat

-Painted wing mirrors matte black as paint was chipping off

-Cut parcel tray fabric to go around roll bar rear stays

 

Also took it to another drift day but had the tein springs in it as i had to take the coilovers out for legality reasons.

Also a few weeks ago i went on a cruise with some friends where i got my first rolling shot.

 

 

Later that week I went to a skid pad/drift day at the local track, first time drifting with coilovers instead of lowering springs.
Set the coils to max hard, was a  heap easier to hold drifts just had to be a little aggressive to initiate them.
Found myself running out of steering lock so have added lock mods to the to buy list.
Also my passenger wing mirror glass fell out while drifting so i'll probably get some generic "racing" mirrors to replace both of them.

Couple of pics some friends took
