    So itís been a productive day but still would have liked to have done more, but finally a lie in bed was too good to miss out on, after 8 days straight.

    So started on fitting the Brembos on the front, with the discs. I have left out the pads at the moment as I want to get them checked out to make sure I have put them on correctly, when it goes to Area to have the suspension set up.





    The red of the rears now seem to match a lot better with the clear coat on now.



    Delivery then arrived while I was in the middle of doing the drivers side caliper, which was my race header from Tactical Racing. I am going to go for a SpeedFab full system eventually but had this for the meantime, so I can get on and use the car (will need to source either a K100 or cheap Kpro)



    So mocked up the full system with it mated to the Tegiwa exhaust I bought last year in the sale, think it will do the job until I can get my ideal spec



    Then the bane of my day, the sound deadening. It looked so easy when watching YouTube videos using the Pipe freeze stuff, but it proved no so. 4 cans of the stuff down and I am at this point...



    I wouldnít have bothered but I need to get it removed so I can get my plates welded in for my half cage.





    As I had put the brakes on I have put the wheels on as well, 1 to see what it looks like with actual wheels on it lol and 2, I need to see how they sit, as at the moment they have tyres sized for the Evo.

    Itís been nearly a year since it last had wheels on it, so itís good to see it at this stage at the moment.

    Still loads of things to get done, possibly a job for Area to finish off for me I think.

    Ahh yes the joy of removing sound deadening. Possibly one of the biggest ball aches of a job ever, but necessary for getting a cage sorted.

    Given the surface (horizontal, flat), could you instead buy a polystyrene box of dry ice and sit it on the sound deadening until it sublimates away instead? Might work out cheaper (you don't need food-grade dry ice either)

    I did want to use dry ice originally but I was struggling to get some, so used the freeze spray.

    Need either dry ice or a heat gun next I think

    A heat gun will make it easier to get off but leave the glue behind, and most older sound deadening was tar based.
