A few weeks after the SMC show I get a 2 calls from 2 different magazines looking to do features!! Happy days!! Well over the moon.
Was very busy getting it all cleaned up and new bits fitted like a Flocked dash! Looks amazing is all I can say and a nice shiney Big Brake Kit - KSport 8pots.
Flocked dash fitted by my main man mechanic Wullie!
Fitted the same day s the dash, 8 pots!
The night of the 1st mag shoot and a cold one in December! Must have been the coldest night for years!! started a 7pm, got home at 2am, bloody hell it was cold!!! Icing on the cake was a an unhappy poileman at 1o'clock in the morning telling us off for parking in an pedestrian walk way!! lol
January sees the pics taken for the next magazine, this time during the day and alot warmer too. A disused warehouse on the southside of Glasgow.
Both features are still to be published, when I don't know, the sooner the better.
With the RR looking great!! I'm asked to take part in the 2008 Scottish Modified Car Show Top 50 cars which is a great honor considering its a daily driver and not a trailer queen! 1st time taking part in a show of its size.
Another year later and another style! More changes to the Rice Rocket
www.flat4online.co.uk my main sponsor supplies FMIC/full 3inch Racing Exhaust and a few other parts. My other sponsor is www.artelmotorsport.co.uk who supplied the Lime Green silicone hoses which look the part!
The main change ot the RR is the paint work. Decided to give it a major big change. Black roof with black A and C pillars making the car stand out from the crowd even more than it did. Fitted a new Carbon Bonnet too. Touch-ups did a great job of the paint work. Also got the Rota Subzeros alloys powdercoated Gloss black to match the new style which was done by Carrick Engineering in Prestwick
Very happy as it has been hard getting people to like the style of my car! Its not blue with gold wheels, then its not a subaru or "your've got a spoiler" how dare you make your subaru different from the norm! lol
From there it has snowballed into making my bugeye one of the best about!
Completely different look to the normal very day run of the mill imprezas on the roads. A full bodykit fitted, Wingswest front and rear lower spoilers along with sidesills. Silver vinyl flames with 'Subaru stars' in various silver & charcoal, while the 19inch alloys are powder coated anrathcite and a Cusco Carbon GT spoiler.
