Finally got new seat, will post up another picture later when i fit passenger Seat, need to have a play around with the drivers rail as the seat is touching the B to Roof bar which isnt ideal, but will be able to lower the seat i think as it is a low max design.

Im so stoaked, its a genuine Bride Gardis 3 with glitter back, not many if any of these in NZ, passanger seat is Bride Zeta 3 with glitter back, basically the same seat without head support, both are FIA which obviously isnt needed but gives me peace of mind :D

Out of curiosity, how did you get the intake to be at the front? Make the Gen I head fit?

I really like what you've done with the radiator and the intake air. I'm sure it will go really well.
