    Small world man! My shop is on the same street too, chances are we wander past each other all the time.

    My flat bottomed wheel arrived today, looks good! Quality is tops Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr They even included the top button trim piece. This is awesome because I now have a spare: my carbon fiber guy in Bulgaria requires this part sent so this could be on the cards next..!

    Thank you for your custom! 472 Sterling Grey Metallic. Looks nice in the sun, pretty tough to mix touch up for tho. Grant and Ben at GT Refinishers did a great job paint matching the cage tho!

    Got the car back from the painters today. I went with sterling grey to match the shell, looks good! Once it's fully dry I'll reinstall the interior side panels, seat base and carpet, then get the retrimmers on the case for any bits I can't do. This is going to look factory once it's finished Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr

    Got the okay from Motorsport NZ that I can go ahead with roll cage paint! It'll take a couple of weeks to get the paperwork back, but sounds like we're ok for homologation and logbook..! In the meantime I bought an extinguisher bracket from KAP Industries in Australia. It arrived today so I fitted it up with my single-strap extinguisher (I'll need a new one with 2 straps for motorsport). Fits nice and snug, and being black it's kinda subtle which I like. Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Wheel is still on it's way from the Ukraine, and I'm expecting the Storm gearknob to be here shortly too. I also bought some more safety stuff today, some proper clamps to go around the harness bar and stop the harnesses moving, and some nomex gear.

    Yeah, a week or two stock was enough to remind me what I prefer at this age & stage 🤣

    Yep I ordered it through AZA Auto in the Ukrane - search them on Instagram bro they do some crazy good stuff. My carbon fiber guy is over there too a bit further south in Bulgaria (found his workshop on google maps before I bought my first lot). Heaps of epic trim places in Europe

    Sure looks like they did a good job! Yeah I'm a bit off-put by full alcantara as the wear points don't take long to look rubbish, and the upkeep is pretty intensive (this from a fair amount of experience..!). It was quite a dilemma because I wanted alcantara on the wheel to suit the rest of the interior (and what's going to happen soon) but leather is much, much easier to maintain...! Hence I had to get it custom made - I couldn't find anywhere that'd do exactly what I wanted off the shelf. Let's see what it looks like when it arrives!

    Steering wheel has been made to my spec, check it out. Looks good! Will take some more pics when it’s here and I have put it on.

    What does everyone rate as the best gearknob? I have a weighted ZHP on there currently, which is ok but not super-ergonomic - and I'm in the middle of replacing all the leather with carbon fiber or alcantara so it looks a bit out of place. I also have a carbon/alcantara M2 shifter, which looks the part but it doesn't feel good at all (way to small for my hammy fist). Has anyone had any experience with any of these, and if so, opinions? I'm not too worried if it's a bit taller, as I have a shortened 330d/m performance shift lever in there. 1. Rogue Engineering Delrin 2.) TWM Performance "A6" 3.) Black Forest Industries billet
