Well ... the EAGLE HAS LANDED !!!

My limbs ache. There was just two of us last night to unpack all the crates and boxes. Big heavy oily stuff (gearbox, driveshaft, axles, brakes, wheels etc) I left at the garage. Smaller stuff and particularly valuable/custom stuff I brought home (electronics, carbon fibre, intercooler, clutch, modified headlights and fogs etc).

Pictures do not do this stuff justice !!! The lights curtis did are simply awesome and with the AMG carbon fibre grill and some amber corners this thing is gonna look real mean and moody !!

No breakages whatsoever, packaging was awesome. Bit of a scare when we couldn't find the $3000+ carbon clutch which was hiding in a corner (little devil), but that was it. Pictures will follow soon, but major developments will have to wait until after Xmas. Next week the WTO conference starts and we are on 16 hour shifts !!!

I really can't thank you guys enough.

Paul.

Paul, I'm glad you're happy with the packaging. A nerveracking experience to be sure given the weight, travel distance and value. Kudos to John for arranging the successful shipment. So all is well?

That is awesome that you got everything intact. I wish I knew what it felt like to get an order so large you can't find the clutch.

Hell yeah Harry, sorry my man your stuff arrived as well. Gotta laugh, the mechanic asked what the hell is it. I guess they don't build anything that needs one of those over here. Thanks for the T-shirt and stickers too ... it was a nice touch.

Paul, you should have seen it seriously !!! I don't want to sound like a bighead because actually I think most people on here have pretty much all the same stuff on their cars, minus the custom headlights and some of the electronics stuff. It's just that most people do it gradually. It was like half the boxes we opened and we were like "Oh Hell Yeah, I'd forgotten about THIS !!!"

Alex, yeah everything seems hunky dorey so far. I think we are missing bushings for the sway bars and there's an issue with the BOV flange (well lack of it !!!) on the UICP but Jesse is working with me on that as we speak.

There are still some things that have to be worked out. We need to check the rims and make sure 380 mm discs will fit before we get those. I'm going to just spray the vinyl on the dash black for now. I can't be bothered shipping it to get it flocked. I'll get the pillars, dash under panels and console flocked first and then just raid the junkyards in the UK later and hire a van to take a GTi dash to the flocking place later. Or get Mike to make me a CF one ...

Alex, I'll PM you later, I didn't see that AP master cylinder and I need to figure out how to make the handbrake hydraulic. You told me but I've forgotten what I need to do it. John Teet had a nice bolt in conversion, but as he reminded me before I nearly bought it, it is for a LHD ... duh !!!

All in all though, the stuff is better than I hoped. I was up until 3 am playing with screens USB devices and checking how I am going to mount the stuff. I'll get some RAM for the mini-computer and show how the interface works with some screen shots and stuff a bit later.

Paul.

Yeah ...

Bad Guy Dentsport Garage (aka Bimmubishi)

So here's the deal, I'm sitting here minus a Kidney and one nut and in serious debt waiting for all the parts Alex bought for me with the money I sent him. So today I pick up the crates to find a bill for the last Dentsport Garage BBQ stripper crew, some shares in a local brewery and a note that says "thanks sucker!"

Paul this is Bill from DSG. Tried to speak to Al about your order but he's hanging 'lifeless' from the wall perforated with Ninja Stars with a note on the desk that says "Hong Kong VR4 preservation society"

That's the same scenario that I ran except there might have been a few more strippers.


Do you carry Ninja stars in a holster? Lol.

No Paul is like Jackie Chan in the movie "Who Am I" sliding on the side of his VR4 instead of an EVO. I need to watch that movie again Pajaro's rock I want one so bad.

Okay Dudes these are the last pictures you'll be getting for a while, assuming I don't get killed at the World Trade Organization's 6th Ministerial Conference (MC6) next week, in which case you'll NEVER get any more !!!

Had a bit of a play this evening ... this is what I got



Intercooler kit 23 X9 X 3 with 2.5" hot side and 3" cold side pipes



JAM Billet Throttle Body ... it's a little over 3" (80mm) ... that coupler was a bitch to get on there !!!







COP setup on phenolic resin. This thing just isn't photogenic but it is awesome in the flesh. It looks like a kevlar carbon composite (you can get a slight impression from the last picture - the coils are out of focus but you can see the texture of the material);





The in dash screen, it's nothing fancy because it is not predominantly for posing. It has a VGA input and will be connected mainly to the mini-itx computer for 24/7 hardwired access to DSMLink for tuning and logging.



This is an awful photo and yes it is upside down but it was the only way I could find to give some indication of how Curtis' lights and Paulo's grille will look together.



Iceman's 3G MAS ... not quite sure how it'll fit with this



... eventually we'll be using the above intake and this in blow through




Just waiting for native support from DSMLink



Another lousy picture. I need to mount these gauges on a piece of black plastic plate but hopefully you can see how these fit well in the GGSX Suspension pod. The twin SPA digital displays give 4 readouts and because they are centred, nothing is lost at the top and bottom as can happen with analog gauges.

More to come ...

Nice pics! You should have wifi in your car so when she starts spewing oil or something on the highway, you have instant access to the board as shown in your pic!

Josh,

The current mini-itx board has a modified windows 98 OS with a very small footprint to give a quick boot up. As such I think most browsing and network functions are disabled.

I am seriously thinking about getting a mini mac to do that sort of stuff though. If you use Onspeed compression software and a 56K modem the speed is pretty acceptable for looking at the board and in Hong Kong a GSM coverage is like 98%.

Paul I had a thought about the phenolic spacer. I'll see if I can find it from eastwood or aircraft spruce but a clear like polyurethane will bling it out. It has to be able to stand up to constant heat, oil, etc.

Damn! I haven't read this thread in months. Glad to see things are moving along. Thumbs up to the guys for coordinating all this stuff across the globe. Can't wait to see it all come together. Why the hell is Curtis holding out on those headlights for anyway?
