Kca399... I did, just to save my tyres :)


Well I'll add that to the shopping list, cheers Benny.

Thanks for the feedback guys, they really do change the look of the car and give it some life.

Niiiice :)
Kca399 if excessive camber (eg results of laser alignment), to fix excessive inner rear tyre wear, or if you run out of toe adjustment to fix the cambered tyre wear. Or even if you just like stock spec alignment ;)

Looks mint. Shows you don't need a stupidly wide rim to look the part.
Only downside is they won't fit over Brembo's with that width and offset.

Sweet ride mate! The slotted discs make a huge difference.

Where's a link to get a club sticker?

Cheers

Search traction prints online. Beware though, both mine took over 6 weeks and 2 complaint emails to arrive. Whoever runs that business doesn't do a great job.

And yes, the slotted rotors are a nice touch. I've since repainted the wheels to a graphite colour, just haven't gotten any solid pics to update with yet :)

Updoot time!

After making 3 trips from Bendigo to Geelong in 1 and half days on some very shitty roads, one of my CV shaft boots decided to crack and blow grease out everywhere in the engine bay. This burning grease on the catalytic converters smells very strong, makes it easy to tell that something has gone wrong. Pic of said destruction;
Image

After deciding that having just moved with work and uni to sort out that I'd just pay a mechanic to fix the boot for me (thinking it'd be an easier, stress free solution). I took the car to PDR Differential & Driveshaft specialist and was quoted $90 for the fix. Simple enough that got done and i drove it home. I wake up the next day to see that it's pissing out gearbox oil. YAY.

Long story short, the guys at PDR had damaged the seal where the shaft meets the centre diff causing a leak. Two weeks & many liters of oil on my driveway later the guys replaced the seal and it's back to normal.

I decided to finally paint my works in a graphite colour I got from autobarn. Used a can of paint for each wheel, and 1/2 of primer per wheel and around 1/2 can of clear. I was being very generous on the paint to try and ensure a strong finish to resist stone chips. For a home job totalling $107 inclusive of paint, sandpaper, primer, clearcoat and masking/prep materials I'm pretty happy with the result.
Image

Also bought a replica tbsti front lip which was an absolute pain to install, of course the mounting brackets never line up. Many twisted brackets, some cable ties, and some securing hardware later and it was on. Such a pain in the ass but it was worth it, definitely needs a coat of black paint when I can be bothered.
Image

Went on the club.lib cruise from Diamond Creek to Cardinia Res, was a great drive and the rain made things quite fun. Met a bunch of nice members and got some great photos.
Image

Now that I'm well into the uni life and living expenses are kicking in I don't think the lib will be seeing any further mods for now. There's so much I'd love to still do so who knows, regardless it's a great fun car as is.

Oh Man what a debacle! Glad it all got sorted in the end. That is some pretty serious grease spray!

Rims look awesome! I am thinking of doing mine soon also in a similar colour, from matt black. Where did you get your lip from? I am after one too at some point.

Study hard then mate :D

The grey I used is the only one that's labelled as "wheel paint" at autobarn, I forget the brand but I can try and track it down for you next time I'm in there.

I got the lip from elitegarage, honestly I wouldn't bother with it and I'd just buy a legit tbsti one if i were to do it again. I paid $200 for this and the fitment drove me nuts, far worse than any other "bolt-on" part that I've experienced.
