    Short onboard video taken en route to Japfest over the weekend. Drivers eye view to experience the inside of a Galant.
    Need to work on camera position to prevent wobbling and noise interference. Hence the music overlay.

    Thos gauges are bloody cool.

    I never copped the boost one in the first picture above.

    I would much rather something like that compared to all of the fancy new
    stuff with digital clusters.

    Hopefully I'll get to see it out and about at one of the C&C's in Dundalk before the year is out.

    Yes spot on, there are six units and it lights up progressively. Snap below is on full boost so all six are lit up.

    The 8th Gen Galant and Legnum have a similar progressive light system for their AYC. Which to date is still one of the coolest gizmos ive ever had on a car. Incredibly hard to catch as it lights up on cornering and how hard the AYC is working. It went too in colour from green, amber and red. If you saw red you were doing well!

    I've never seen that before!
    Unsure, I think ive seen it before on L300 Delicas too.

    Its all cool until you forget what your checking or which is which

    I drove the family Galant GLS from 1992 and it had the A and B trip clocks just like that, so it was probably standard or at least very common place.

    Nothing major to report, getting out on the odd spin here and there and its glorious. Attended cars and coffee a couple of weeks ago in Dundalk. Love driving this thing, especially at night. Something about Green lit dashboards really gets the JDM feels.





    Porous fuel filler line was replaced.

    Before and after



    Nicked drive shaft boot was caught early...the joy of white wheels that quickly showed up the drips of oil.




    Cars and Coffee Dundalk.




    With mates at a local evening meet. Arranged in colour order for our Italian mate.

    Had a spin to Dublin, great to be out. I even took the old N3 home instead of the motorway. Where abouts was it, had a lad in a black 520d beeping and giving thumbs up. Wasnt you?

    Beautiful. Nice to see an old legend minded like it should be.

    The end of prep and protection is nearly in sight. First show this weekend at Old School New School in Longford. Some great evenings spent over the last week in the garage, getting to detox, tunes on and taking my time to get this right.

    Two months since paint approx, so as advised by the painter it was time to get it coated up. My go to is the Soft99 range of wax. The intention is to get a nice deep undercoat with the Fusso wax and on top of that the Soft 99 King of Gloss.

    Quick snowfoam down, rinse and dry. Then back into the garage to dry off totally.

    Wheels were coated in GTechniq C5 Wheel armour, two coats with a few days in between. Should make life easier living with white wheels.

    All black trims and plastic including inside wheel arches coated in BraytR1. Some of the more faded parts were coated a number of times.

    Then onto the wax application. Given I had plenty of time I built the first coat up over a couple of days. Two full passes with the Fusso wax. The heat means you have to work in small sections as it can harden and prove difficult to remove if it drys too much.

    The final coat is the Soft99 King of Gloss, and this really makes the final coat pop. It really feels as smooth as silk now. White car and white wax is really hard on the eyes to work with!

    Now all that is left to enjoy it and care for it from here on in. All the suspension is buttoned up and it drives lovely.

    Prep has started now after a few weeks hibernation letting everything settle down.

    There is some satisfaction applying fresh decals!
