My 05 JDM IX from Kenya

Recently picked up a neglected JDM evo 9 gsr, thought I'd make a build thread to be help keep up with bringing her back to life

Here are some pictures from collection day:





So much curb rash



Sweet carbon trunk lip



Filthy engine bay





More carbon on the front, not to my taste though

Not really we have a fairly broad car scene mostly Imports from japan though, here's an album of a car show we had last year:

Took the eyelids off, some idiot thought painting them while on the headlights was a good idea. There's a thin layer of silver paint on the edges.



after a good clean, good as new

As off now the whole interior has been stripped and i've got my hands on basically a whole new interior, plastics and that.
Here are some pictures of it before, I'll get one up with all the new parts when the car is ready.




I don't even know how you break this bit.



Absolutely ****ed drivers seat.



glued on tweeters and some bull**** wiring coming out the plastics.



cigarette holes in the drivers seat. there's one in the passenger seat and the rear bench too



for ****s sake

Completely stripped the car ready for a new color

Surprisingly clean considering the condition of the car
All this wiring has to come out. The car probably had a sound system at some point in its life
All the carbon was restored. Still not really a fan. Proabably going to sell these bits

So... big jump. The car is now painted Mercury grey pearl.




Really happy with the color, its like a mix of Apex silver and Graphite Grey
Needs more low. Coilovers soon and hopefully a new set of wheels, the stock ones are not the best.
Getting a Ralliart lip soon but the stock one will do for now.
