Sooo made a start on my arches today! Obviously went the rat way about it and used these!:
Image
Couldnt of worked any better, didnt have to take anything apart and are really secure, so win win! A few step by step pics :D :
Image

Image
Image

And ended up with this!:
Image

Arches will be cut before the over fenders are bolted on. Doing it this way allows me to bolt the arch on and off if i need to change it/remove bumpers etc. Saves me replacing rivets every time and was cheaper! About £15 in total

Also got my jap plate on, queue rolling shot:
Image

AND! Purchased this bad boy for spring action day this weekend :D WIll be sure to get track pictures/maybe a video

And a couple pics of the car as it sits now after a quick wax! :D

Image
Image

Plans now are:

Battery Relocate and engine bay tidy
Relocate horn (Still makes noise so im giving up)
New mats
Service including coolant change (As these supposedly aren't supposed to use OAT coolant, more research still needs to be done)
Brake upgrade at some point (drilled/slotted discs and uprated pads. Maybe braided lines)
Fab c-pillar brace
Maybe source a rear ARB

Thats all i can think of at the moment, only little bits, pleased with where the car is at now :D

Vanity time!
Got snapped at a local meet:

Image

Paint was loking drab so decided to buy a Dual action polisher to finally make use of the dodo juice polish a bought a while ago, results were great! All took place after a little clean:

Image
Image
Image
Image

And got some top mounts from Gaz to fix the crappy ones produced for the ignis (Been through 2 sets recently including an 'uprated' set)

Long time no post! So ran into a few mechanical niggles with the car and finally got everything buttoned up! Ill let the pictures do the talking

Image
Pollybushed my end link so the front arb is fully pollybushed, new top hats for the coilovers as the bearing tolerance was tight before

Image
Another pic of the top hat, much better fit :tu

Image
Image
new vs old wheel bearings as the old ones were noisy!

Image
Little mod for more air flow! :D

Last couple of images to post and talk about before i put her up for grabs!

Picture of the top mounts when they were installed on the coilovers:

Image

Bodged rear spring mounts had to go and adjustable ones were fitted! Now fully adjustable front and back! (and much safer)

Image

And a few spare parts that will come with the car when i part with it :D

So the time has come to part with the Ignis
Passed last MOT with no advisories, runs out on 09 September 2017.
Just ticked over 100k (will find exact mileage soon, parked on the drive at my mums)
Has a few nicks here and there but to be expected for a car of this age, paint still polishes up great!

List of mods is as follows:
Gaz coilovers
Ga adjustable top mounts
Rear adjustable panhard rod
Polly bushed front ARB
Monster sport carbon intake and filter
Suzuki Sport strut brace
Mims alloys
Arch extensions
Short shifter and aftermarket gearknob
Aftermarket steering wheel
Wind deflectors
Optional foglights
Stainless cat back exhaust with centre exit
Scangauge obd2 display (for water temp, intake temp etc)
Painted headlights and Osram nightbreakers
Optional underboot tray and parcel shelf

No expense has been spared with the car, always looked after, regular oil changes etc. Recently had new rear hubs as the bearings were making noise. also new rear discs and pads (as i initially thought that was what was causing the noise)
Drives perfectly!
Comes with spares which include:
Standard springs
Coolant
Spare bulbs and replacement standard headlights
Oil catch can
and a few other smaller things

Based in Bristol and im after £1700
