Park it like it's hard...

Rate this Entry
Weather's been a bit wet here lately, so I've been busying myself doing a lot of little odd-jobs on the car. Slowly ticking through them. Nothing interesting, it's all stuff like replacing the wiper blade, re-gluing and cleaning up a couple of little bits here and there. I've also given it a wash, wax, polish, clean-out etc.... it hadn't had one for 6 months and while it didn't exactly look dirty, it's come up so shiny again.

Got the TMRs and new Toyo R888s on the car now. Will bed them in on the road and then these will be my dedicated track-rims. Car looks a lot more serious with these on! Even though they're the same sizes as standard, they do look a lot wider than the stock rims. Optical illusions!

Also finally got around to fitting my Lotus Sport sun-strip... handy at this time of year with the sun low in the sky!

Managed to get it outside during a break in the showers to take a couple of photos at last!

    Thought the rear wheels looked bigger! Did you white out the Toyo Proxies R888 or buy them like that? Can't wait to see this in person at NIMM

    Yeah, I did the lettering myself, time consuming to do it tidily and it doesn't stay looking that good for long but they're only track tyres so don't need to look perfect

    What did you do the lettering with? We tried it on a mates car with paint pen but it only lasted a few days before it wore off
