    That looks great. How easy are the coolant hoses to do? I've got TIP and boost hoses, but just had visions of oil and fluid going everywhere when disconnecting the originals.

    they are easy mate, usually just a few hose clamps holding these things on, no oil or fluids to content with when changing.

    Any pics, i would be interested in seing your bay, i am always looking for new ideas.
    Also the blue silicone houses my electric for my boost/temp guage, i didn't like the housing it was in, so i replaced 3/4(the visible part) of it to smarten it up.

    Very nice, i remember actually i seen you car in another post and it gave me the idea to spray my engine cover and battery cover gloss black, so thanks for that.

    what size hose did u use for the hose that goes around just infront of the charge pipe.

    Its late and there is fook all on the box so i thought i would a a few pics of my LCR. I have added coilovers, rear ARB, spacers and a set of geniune BBS CH014 19" powder coated black since i updated this, there are a few other bits and bobs changed but i have mostly spent my time as of late working the paint job and detailing my bay

    The jury is still out for me on the black BBS, i am toying with the idea of getting them in some sort of gun metal color, so comments are welcome
