Hey Rick you can get one from the aftermarket vendors or you can just make one.

Good deal, I'd hate to see you wreck cause you lost brake pedal!

Been a while since my last update! Figured i'd post up a few things and a few pictures >









Over the past month or so after getting my Oil Inlet thread for the turbo fixed. (wound up being that my mechanic is also an engine builder/car restorer and he put a 90 in there and a union on the turbo line). Still working out minor kinks and getting the rebuilt engine broken in. Just did my first Royal Purple/K&N oil change and I put in the BMC Heat shield and also got my front suspension height dialed in. The rears haven't been touched yet i have a friend coming to roll my fenders hopefully this coming week. The last picture was taken BEFORE i lowered the front.

More to come! Just ordered the angled Vent Gauge plate from Toby so that should be here within a few weeks. Going with Prosport electronic gauges. For the price you can't go wrong. Just kinda hoping this isn't one of those "You get what you paid for" situations . But i'm optimistic! Going with Blue/White and also going to change my Cluster LED's again back from Red to Blue. Alpine deck lights up blue so i should have blue/white themes going on.

Been A While but I got some minor stuff done as well as got some parts to put on for the winter >

1. I purchased Broadfield's (Toby) custom fabricated 52mm Vent gauge holder. My plan is to run STRi gauges (boost, oil pressure, and water temp) all in white. I want to change my clusted LED's to Blue again and have the White LED's in the STRi gauges to flow with the Alpine deck which is Blue/White. With the exterior of my car being blue as well.

Here's a link to Toby's page to check out the vent gauge holder.
http://zilvia.net/f/interior-exterio...ge-plates.html

2. As far as cosmetics go I have wanted a professional powdercoating job done to my Valve Cover, 4 calipers, and whatever other parts i feel could be accentuated. I am slightly torn between a smoke gray with black lettering or a dark glossy blue with either black, white, or gray lettering.

Gray being like this

Blue looking slightly darker than this

Also juggling this gray
but i think this one is too dark.

I plan to paint the car eventually and I'd like it all to flow. Which is why i think the gray would be the safe choice but I think blue would look more tasteful and cunning. But i also see it being to ricer. Can you sense i'm torn?

3. I have a contact who professionally re-upholsters seats so i'm also looking to get them done. I wanted them to have the feel of a WRX but a little more sporty. I wanted just general cloth nothing special and the padding I want very firm. This is all going to be black to match the rest of my interior. And this guy on Ebay sells Floor mats that say Silvia. I'd get them black and Zilvia the appropriate color i choose for the Valve cover and Calipers.

Which can be found here if you were interested
http://myworld.ebay.com/ebaymotors/a...id=p4340.l2559

Before the seasons over i'd like to get the Tail lights i purchased from another member on ONE in as well as my HKS Wastegate Actuator i'm waiting for in the mail. No pics on this update but this helps me get motivated and get some work done going to the weekly 240 meet in Coventry also helps me get motivated. Seeing everyones nice cars and what they're doing and how that relates to my plans. Thanks guys!

-Rick
