Thanks.

So recently I've noticed the brakes getting a bit spongy. A bit too early to do pads I thought. During the last service, I checked out the brakes while doing the tire rotation and the pads were fine, but the 18 year old rubber lines looked to be the culprit. So I put in an order for Project μ stainless lines. They should be by the end of the month. But the fluid and bleeder tool will here this evening.

The wife couldn't complain about car parts because it's safety related, so I figured while I have her good graces I'll sneak in a bit of an upgrade and replace the brake fluid.

The brake lines arrived much earlier than expected
Going to see if I can make time tomorrow to throw them on.

Yesterday I swapped out the old rubber brake hoses for the shiny new Project μ ones and replaced the old fluid while I was in there.

The pedal felt great on the drive to work this morning, so I guess I was able to get all the air out of system. It was my first time using a pneumatic brake bleeder, so I wasn't sure. But using one of those is the way to go.

The next project came in today.
Saito Rollcage finished it much quicker than I expected.

Had a chance to remove some trim and shave the b pillar trim to make room for the brace connecting the main hoop to the b pillar. Had to shave off about 7cm.



If the weather cooperates, I should be able to have everything installed by Thursday.

Iíve been stuck into it for the past two days. Everything gets finished up tomorrow.








A spreader bar I made up to help fit things more easily.






About a meter or so of padding left over.

Not planning too much for exterior mods, but I'm going to focus on handling and exhaust first.













nice pictures

Yesterdayís progress was pretty good.


This last bar was a pita to get in, but I got it using a ratchet strap and flathead screwdriver to pry it in place.








Extremely happy with the a pillar fitment.

On the home stretch. Just going to neaten up the wiring for the gauges I put in while Iím in here.



Had to cut into the air duct for the driverís vent.


Stuffed in this flexible hose so I donít lose the ventís functionality.



That was all I had time for today before the rain came.

Had time to put on this Cusco brake master cylinder stopper, a nice little Father's Day present.

Made an order with Do-Luck and got a carbon trunk on the way.
Hopefully next year I'll complete the set with the bumpers and skirts.

How much of a difference does a Cusco brake master cylinder stopper make?

Iíve noticed a difference under hard braking, not so much during normal driving. The pedal doesnít have any give to it like it used to. Honestly, if youíre not doing autocross or tracking the car, I wouldnít really bother with it.
