No la~~~I wish I have such skill. Hahhahahaha
I gv it to a paint shop to do it. They can't finish on yesterday so i drive back and pass to them today to continue. And I also request them to do a new hood lock plate for more secure.
Ha Ha .. I saw the pic which appears to be from home and the dirty hood. So I mistakenly thought you DIY.

Considering the amount of putty on it, it's a good decision to wrap instead of paint

After the wrap the exterior part is all done.

I have some plan for the car in the future. The plan are

-Mild camshaft 275 (not going to high cam
-lightweight crank pulley
-Adjustable cam ( can I juz use back the stock cam pulley if I change the camshaft?
-wira 1.6/1.8 full set brake & gsr full set (the evo brake pump still inside my house haven't use .ahahahahaha
-Short shifter
-Better tyre, either Re003 or advan fleva
-stainless steel extractor with heat wrap?

I also found some issue regarding the cam. When I ask the seller,he told me that 4g15 vdo camshaft is a little bit shorter compare to a 4g15 cab type and I need to add some washer at the coil pack area. I was like won't it effect the durability?

To me juz smoother & lighter accelarate. Alittle bit more power while overtake. I won't expect to gv me alot by juz fitting the camshaft juz overall better perfomance then now then is ok for me.

The seller say the camshaft is base on a 4g15 cab camshaft to design. So is a little bit longer(never know vdo & cab have different lenght of camshaft.
So now I juz doing more research. If really can't I juz give up on it.Hahahaha

i thought u gonna swap 4G92 MIVEC? :driver:
those mods @Izso can clarify coz he'd done all of it on his old 4G15 wira.

brakes if u still using 4g15 i think no need to upgrade to 1.6/1.8 or GSR. u'll brake lock very easy. just upgrade the rotors to slotted ones and use good pads.
tyres i'd still choose RE003 or can try RE004. singapore already got RE004. haha.

Wanna play until it went kaboom only consider. Hahahahaha.
Mild mod then call it a day for now.

Tyre wait until mine this set all worn out then I will go back to RE003 since my jazz use it very like the grip.
