Yesterday I treated myself and PEX to a £250 full carbon fiber race splitter mad I know but I thought it has to be done.
I also bought a new blue air intake with mesh so no leaves and other stuff doesn't get sucked up and some blue bumper mesh to replace the stuff i have already got as it has gone rusty.

I managed to modify the front bumper by cutting out the bumper slot on the passenger side, that should allow enough air to flow down to the oil cooler.
I also got my blue mesh air pipe so that will be going on once I have finished the work on the bumper.

Hi everyone yesterday my blue mesh came through the post so today I unscrewed and took out my old rusty mesh from the bumper.
Then used that as a template and cut out my new mesh and then screwed it to the bumper and it looks great :D I have ordered a set of wide arches from Germany, so once they have arrived they will be taken to my mates paint shop and sprayed in the same red I have had my bumpers and rear spoiler .

Those who are my friends in Facebook will know a lot has been done to PEX since my last post on here but if you don't know here is an update.
I did finally get PEX MOTed which is great but the engine started to make a knocking noise so took that out and managed to get a rare Wolf engine which has got a ported and polished head, lightened and balanced crank, lightened and balanced flywheel, ported and polished inlet manifold and it is a MPI engine.
Got a few other things like a Fingers 99 lower struts brace, race alloy radiator, bought all new polyurethane engine mounts so I have stripped down the drivers side engine mount and top gearbox mount and repainted them.
Got a completely refurbished gearbox that was done by The Punto Shop and a few other bits like a new oil and radiator fan switch.
I have replaced the side mounts for the quick release front bumper as the old ones were rubbish and replaced my old side repeaters with new stock ones.
To finish off I thought while the engine is out why not repaint the engine bay.
