Decided to go over a couple of things before JDM Combe.

Gave my transmission fluids a change and decided to give some Redline high performance transmission oil a try.

Draining the diff:



Replaced both the diff and transfer box oil with Redline 75w-85



MT-85 for the gearox





Had an issue with the transfer box fill plug stripping the thread on the casing when removing the plug. Ended up using some JB-Weld for the time being to seal it, since I couldn't fit a drill for a helicoil or a tap to rethread the hole due to the lack of space and positioning of the fill hole itself. So I'll be fixing that when the gearbox is off the car. Luckily, I've got a spare box if needed as well.



Noticed that I'm getting some play in my front lower control arm bushes. Anyone know where I can get a new pair of arms?



Gave some attention to my brakes since the calipers seemed to be binding slightly. Had an issue with a wheel stud also stripping the thread...



The brakes didn't need much to get them working properly again. Just a clean up and some copper grease on the sliders. Pads and discs were still in fantastic condition, too.



My clutch has started to slip so I'll be replacing that soon. Also ordered a new flywheel oil seal from KP Gasket in Malaysia, so once that arrives I'll be changing my clutch. I should be able to repair my gearbox whilst that's off, too.
