i'm going to get evolution foundry to make me an ornament plate for the top of the rad - basically this will do a couple of things....
it will bridge the gap between the engine and the rad so it doesn't look so bare, it will help air continue channelling towards the engine from behind the rad so maybe aid cooling but not by much imo, it will be very easy to remove to work on the thing (will fit the two radiator mount points on top of the rad) and it will be polished stainless so bling bling :)

shouldn't cost much, and i believe all the aftermarket rads have mounts in the same places for the original shroud so should fit all if anyone else was interested....

Brakes look great mate. Love the colour! Weren't they off an Evo? Have you got custom mounts made up?

Yeah they were evo 8 brakes mate, dan at db power made me up some brackets and got me matching coloured hel braided lines for 90 quid so its been a pretty cheap set up so far to be honest as gav (zero260) sorted me the calipers with virtually new disks and pads for 175 ,gonna be a big improvement over standard think the new disks are 330 mm will get some pics up before and after fitting them next week sometime

I have the Brembo's from a Subaru STI (they look the same as yours actually). They do the job alright :)

Anything has to be better than standard !
Sometimes I am tempted to pop my boot to see if it would act as an air brake !!!
Hopefully this will cure that urge!!!
Gonna get my diff fitted next week too hopefully so it should be quicker of the mark and slowing down good times!!!!

slight change of plans,the rad i got from jperformance got slightly bent in the post,so i intended to send it back and get a new one ,so i contacted them about it and they said they would sort it asap so i messaged them asking where to send it to and some other questions i had (as their address is not on their site) but i never got a response.messaged them every day for a week and nothing...
i found their address in the end and returned it but for a refund now htey have messed me around so much,in the mean time i managed to get this looks alot better made tbh and its the rad i originally wanted just got bored of waiting for apex to get some more in ,anyways its brand new unused in a box and a really good price so i am happy,gonna get some bits on this week so pics will follow shortly..

Looking good mate, it certainly suits the kit without the spoiler. Does the boot try to fling itself through the back window now when you release it from in the car?!
