is that one of them omp anthracite strut braces sets from ebay that come with the front and rear? there has been loads of debates which way up they should go. they way you have put it so that the sticker is facing the right way like you would imagine or upside down so that the cups wrap around the top of the strut and give more support.

The heatshield had two of the three holes starting to pull through so I did a little repair on them and then painted it with alloy silver paint :D

I bought the Rear brace on it's own direct from Strutbracer. I think it's the correct way and don't know that the other way would offer much more support? It works well as it is though! along with the Flo-flex bushes. :thumbsup:

i think it's more a each to their own thing really, i would put one on that way too if i had one becuase i would get tired of people saying it's on the wrong way becuase the sticker would be upside down.

you say it works well? has it made that much of a difference?

It was like a barge before all the changes, where the back end wallowed around. Now everything is nice and tight and goes where you point her. I don't know if the strut brace on it's own will be that noticeable but it will make a difference, definately.

Got myself some new bits for the Si just in time for FITP. Got a new Magnex system from Tweeks on the bay for £160 :D
Also got a new pipe from big g1995 (many thanks) after it went at the northern meet.
As I tend to do whilst changing things I have a small tidy up........ Here's the pics, comments as usual welcome :thumbsup:

Great stuff on the exhaust, at that price it would be rude not too!

The water rial should give you another 15 years before it rots! :lol:

It is truly one of the best examples of an Si left.

Looks stunning mate! :chill:

Really need to paint my manifold heat shield. Did you say it was alloy wheel paint you used on yours?

I used alloy wheel paint on the cam cover which has held out ok, so I thought I would give it a go today on the heatshield (well my son did the painting). Lets see how it goes?
