RSR660

Windscreen is finally out, worse rust than I though – but not holey.
Picked up the bits from the powdercoaters, cost was a smidge more than I hoped but still awesome.

Blaaack silicon vacuum hose arrived from eBay, surprisingly quick from HK.
Mounts ordered.

Fridy/Satdy

Dropped off a box of stuff to the powdercoaters today, couple brackets on the engine, some light mounting ones and the front main member. Should be ready in a week or two.

Sent a request through to Streeter for a Suzuki Sport mount kit – replacements for all 4 mounts in the engine bay, pretty sure they are slightly firmer too.

Still no luck getting windscreen out, first place I made an appointment with (who never turned up) hasn’t contacted me. Sent a SMS to reschedule and no luck yet.
Another place further away quoted me cheap < lots with no real guesses as to time.

Found a new set of wind deflectors for the doors on Yahoo Auctions, sent a request off to a local place to see how much to get in with his next container – don’t think they’d survive a postal trip.

Oh, ordered some black silicon vacuum hose off eBay for all the cars.

Parts Order: Streeter

Made my most expensive order to date with Streeter.

Soon to be on its way from Japan:

  • Pair of inner tie-rods
  • Pair of front lower control arms
  • Pair of genuine fender mirrors!!!11 – never seen in real life, not even in the brochures
  • (84701-81000-5PK + 84702-81000-5PK)

  • Genuine windscreen moulding

New outer tie-rods and a rack rebuild will mean a complete new front suspension setup
