So today I prepped the engine bay for paint and decided to paint the rear part of the engine bay satin black to match the paneling on the firewall .
I also took the struts off and sprayed behind them so you won't see any white once the arch liners are back on.
Just waiting on a call from my man at the paint shop and ill get some colour and clear laid down ImageImageImageImage

Its lapiz blue Image massive fan of the colour , dark in the shade , bright in the sun .
Its contents actually consist of a fair bit of purple perl and red and thats why it looks dark from a distance Image

So its in ImageImageImageImageImage
1 x 3.6 vr6
1x 02m 6 speed manual gearbox witha 2wd drive conversion plate from creation motor sport

Temporary fitment for now as I'm still waiting on a flywheel.

Turns out Epytec, who have been awesome btw! gave me a refund on my flywheel as they belive its lost on the mail.
Re ordered from ttv engineering and should be here with the next 10 days or so.

Barry the man behind M-developments over here and master tech has completed most of the wiring last 2 days and has used Milatary spec wires for any adaptions as the r36 engine runs a few more sensors which go into the second loom and used a motor sport grade connecter to add these in. As of Monday im just waiting on a flywheel ....then its time to turn the key Image ImageImageImageImage
