Thanks @ivan129 Ok that doesnt sound too bad. Glovebox is a fairly straight forward removal
My understanding is that there is an annoying loom retaining plate on the cabin side of the firewall loom penetration held in by two fixings. One of the fixings is hard to access with some part of the Aircon in. My aircon was disconnected as per the intercooler hose install instructions, so it wasn't an issue for my aircon infrastructure to be temporarily removed in the cabin to allow easy access to the retaining plate. It is far easier to remove the plate with the Aircon out of the way apparently. The loom would not pass through the firewall without the plate removed.
Bear in mind, I did not perform the work, others did, so the info above is secondhand. I hope it helps though.
Unfortunately the car was not exactly the cleanest when these were taken.
Car still needs to go for paint correction and be ceramic coated with either Modesta BC-05 or Kamikaze ISM
Its been a while so here's a few more updates.
Have had my stock steering wheel recovered to give it a new lease of life.
Rear speakers fitted and now all speakers powered by a Clarion mini amp fitted to a custom bracket I laser cut so it fits behind the head unit.
Got my hands on a front number plate mount, had it painted and fitted it up
Stock airbox fitted
Got some Espelir Downsus springs, had them blasted and re-powdercoated and fitted them up to KYB AGX struts.
aaaand took some part restoration to the next level...
More zincing, powder coating and restoration coming in the future... but thats all for now.
Any more info & pictures for the steering wheel re-trim? something I definitely need to investigate myself.
Plenum refresh looks fantastic!
Sure, here's a few more. Pm me if you want the upholsterer info. I sourced a core wheel and sent it to him. It was around $300 to have it redone in genuine leather. The workmanship is as good as a genuine wheel.
Also a detailed vid of the plenum
