This week the clubby is over with Millsy to get the the cage mounts weld in and cage fitted, yellowspeed front brake kit fitted, fJCW exhaust on and airbag warnings coded out.

Today he sent me a couple of progressmpics of the mounts in and painted in primer. Once dry they will be getting a coat of matt black so if they show through the carpet they dont stand out.



Cant wait to see it with the cage in :)

More pics as they come in will be posted.

Well its back, Millsy as usual done a spot on job of getting the clubby sorted.
-Factory JCW exhaust fitted
-Airbag warnings coded out alongside it being coded for fJCW brembo brakes as this makes a difference when fitting bigger brakes
-Yellowspeed BBK fitted
-R53 safety devices cage cut down to fit in an R56 with sunroof, fitted to an R55, he's good :)

First off the cage:

Factory JCW exhaust makes such a better noise:

Neglected the thread a little lately. Not lots of progress, plenty of small bits.

Firstly I fitted the JCW alcantara seats which are so much better than the fixed bucket.

I also purchased a used header tank on here which had seen better days. Easily cleaned up and wrinkle coated, much better:

I also have both the intercooler resonator delete and noise generator delete pipes ready to fit:

Some further upgrades to the clubby from Orranje which include an OMP WRC Wheel and boss which I fitted yesterday. I went for leather with a red stitch as I thought this would be more practical on more of a daily car over the suede wheel which can get dirty quickly from the grease on your hands. I also purchased the red horn sticker to match.

The red stitching matches perfectly with the stitching on the dash/gaiters etc

I've also ordered my harnesses, again through Orranje, not cheap but safety comes first. The are the same ones I have in the R53 so fully road legal and I know I can live with them:

I also have a set of Rennline RS style door pulls to fit, went for black with a red strap:

Next up today I fitted two silicone pipes, a noise generator delete pipe and the intercooler pipe resonator delete, both from Ikon Motorsports in red. Both pretty easy to fit, only issue was the screw holding the resonator in place is a bugger to undo due to lack of space but all sorted:

I do, look what I collected today, they are literally like new, the backs are unmarked which is rare with these:

Pretty easy, just a lot of screws to remove all the dash pieces and centre console. Just take your time and its easy. Most difficult bit is what I am doing next and that isn't bad. The ISO doesn't have a constant 12v connection so I need to get one from the fuse box, have a fuse connector to do it so shouldnt be a problem, just need to find the right fuse, will post up when I find it to help others



Totally agree, there wont be any silver left when im done.

This morning I managed to get the final coilover on and changed the rear pads/discs. While in there I refitted all the arch liners and fitted the new wheels. Looks so much better, im really pleased and glad I went with them, more pictures to follow when it stops raining:

Did you install the adaptors to adjust the rear Coilovers whilst on the car? If so, have you got any pictures of where they come out in the boot?

I had a garage fit them on my R56, but I was going to fit them myself on my Clubbie

Nope I didn't in the end.

The clubby has now gone to a new home, replaced by an F56 JCW.
Well I guess it was pretty much done. I really hope you got a fair price for it as you put some care into it. Enjoy your new whip.
You still have the green r53 monster?

Yep got my asking price for the clubby and it’s gone to a good home. It’s getting a forged engine so looking forward to seeing that. Yep still have the R53 it’s so fun getting in and driving that
