The car is prepped and packed for tomorrow’s drift event. This mainly concerned loading up rear tyres and tools in the car, but as a bonus, I managed to finally fit the front strut brace.

This originally fouled the rocker cover of the higher S14 motor. I loosened the bolts that hold the centre bar to the mounting plates and tried to exaggerate the slight original kinks by applying pressure to the piece in a vise. Reinstalling with everything as high as possible before tightening gave a good 5-10 mm of clearance. It comfortably clears the revving engine movement and underside of the bonnet. Big success.

Can’t wait for tomorrow, even if scutineering is an hour away and starting at 7:30 am.
