Thanks @Kontkret. Yes Photobucket ruined this thread. I have fixed my build thread on the US Evo forum but I haven't had the time to fix this gallery thread.

I keep the EvolutionM.net thread up to date here:

Looks great as I expect with your builds...........but have you filled the gap around the HU/triple gauge facia?

Thanks for the reminder Bob. I knew I still had to fix that gap around the stereo and 1 DIN gauge but you gave me the motivation. Cheers!

I had some black flat plastic in my shed that I knew would come in handy one day. After a lot of thinking & measuring & cutting I got the basic shape roughed out.

Image

I had to test fit this home made bezel (or trim?) a few times and shaved it down gradually so now it fits pretty well.

Image

It has a flat textured finish already but I might give it a rub down with scotchbrite and spray some Transtar 2 in 1 satin black trim paint on it.

Image

I used a little 3M double sided tape to secure it in position.

I recently found some brand new genuine Ralliart parts for sale in Japan.

My Varis CF shift knob hasn't been on the car long at all and its only done about 20kms but when I found a genuine Ralliart CF knob I could't resist upgrading.

It is really nice!

I also got a Ralliart antenna. I had to cut some threads off the set screw to install it and it was a bit tricky getting the logos all lined up but it looks ok I think. It would've looked better if it was a bit fatter. Its a bit flimsy too…

I installed a new Mitsubishi Sports handbrake lever grip today. For years I've been thinking about buying one as I was unsure if I liked them, but after installing it I think it looks good. I bought it new from Japan Parts.

Image

I put some low strength loctite on the grub screw that hold the new grip in place.

The theme for today's install is "genuine Ralliart caps". Haha
I'm sure its not only me who likes the little details???

Firstly a new Ralliart 1.3 bar radiator cap. Great quality and still available new so I replaced my old one as preventative maintenance.

Image

Image

This genuine Ralliart engine oil cap is different to the fakes ones with a better locking washers on the underside and better print on the top of the cap. I've seen fake caps where the letter M is different to this one.

Image

And lastly for today are some genuine Ralliart valve covers. Ralliart valve caps similar to these are being manufactured again but not in Japan. Those new style caps on ebay have the word Ralliart instead of the Ralliart stripe.

If only it was that easy Burke. Most Ralliart stuff is well out of print now. Although a few new things like the Aerial, Shift knob and some other merch is being manufactured again.

The following Ralliart brochure, that I won on Yayoo Auctions Japan for 100 Yen, arrived a few days ago with the help from my mate Mischa who lives in Japan....

Freshly scanned :)

I wish Japan had a decent eBay where everything Yahoo was listed and automatically calculates shipping etc just like when buying stuff directly from China thru eBay. Small stuff thru Import Monster or Jesse Streeter becomes too expensive.
