Fitted new Muteki japanese wheel nuts as my cheap ebay jobs were becoming badly rusted (only bought to see how black wheel nuts would look with my gold wheels, lasted a year)... so much so that the key wouldn't go in one of them, nothing that a hammer couldn't sort!!

Think I bought the same ebay nuts couple of years ago instead of gloss black to match the rotas they look like they'd match my brvs nuts (strangely ginger ish )

How much were they sandy ?

Filled her up with momentum and had a total stranger start asking me about the car and when I'd imported it. Knew his stuff as spotted the rear wiper and fog in bumper. His face when I told him it had been imported from new

50 quid delivered from scooby world. Feel super high quality and it's a great sign when nothing chips off them when i installed them... unlike the ebay jobbies :D

When you make an offer on ebay for a part you want and don't expect to be given it at that price then it gets accepted... need to figure out an excuse for when it arrives now :blush::laugh:

Just wanted new pads fitting, didnt have time to do it myself due to work and an interview so had a local garage do it.

The top slider had seized on the drivers side wheel, the bolt was turning and there was no way to get it off without cutting and ruining the slider. I was quoted about £40 odd quid for a new slider kit but they couldnt get it today. Also the set of pads they ordered were incorrect. The second time they ordered 3 different sets of pads also all incorrect. Sometimes my reg doesnt bring up any info and sometimes it brings up incorrect info due to it being JDM.

Thankfully I had bought a few months ago off the marvelous bay of fleas a 1993 caliper and disc set for a tenner off an old JDM wagon. Old, crusty, chipped and faded white. But working! And all for a tenner! Because of the state of them I did have the idea of cleaning them up but never got around to it, and then was going to upgrade to twin pot in the future so forgot about them altogether.

Got a lift home, picked them up and he said he would mix and match to get them working. 5 mins later he ruined my snooze in the sunshine to say he was going to have to swap the complete caliper over on both sides as despite both of them being single pot rear calipers off a jdm Subaru Wagon they were different sizes and didnt fit.  

The set on the car are Mitsubishi calipers and pads with a thinner non vented disc. Which was a massive suprise!

The set now on the car are Mitsubishi calipers and pads with a thicker vented disc. The calipers are quite a bit bigger aswell.

Two hours labour just to get my rear brakes working when it was just supposed to be pads and less than an hours labour  :(

£120 and some change. But it now stops on a dime! I hadnt realised how much stopping power i was missing! Just in time aswell, Im crossing the Welsh mountains tomorrow and heading to the coast... the long way round :cool: The roads the WRX was made for :punk:

Lets just hope its sunny :confused:

I'm still here sorry guys. Massive amount of shit went on my end. But yes car has sold I intend to be back in one soon. Some cock forced the sale after smashing me in debt owing £9.2k calls himself a business man but rips off honest people for ego trips

 on a plus note I'm not the worse to come off. But I have no home and no car. So hence why I've not been on for awhile. So I'm on the rebuild. So not all bad. 

 

Some of you already know. And I apologise to everyone here. But hope that you understand been pretty difficult time this end but I keep myself always looking at the positive. Sometimes we need to go backwards to go forwards. 

 

But hope to be back pretty soon I miss the burble the shows and all you guys and gals.
