Still so much to do but we're getting there...piece by piece.








Paint needs work but that can wait for the summer, cheeky little 10 mins with various products lead me to this outcome.

Yeah kinda good base...I guess

It was bought completely standard and so far things done are:

Roof changed

Coilovers

Black headlining changed from grey

VR6 Splitter

Osram nightbreakers

Aero wiper blades

Smoothed trims




Things to do in the next month are:

Refurb my other alloys

Tyres

Coilovers wound all the way down

Audio

Fit exhaust

Change clutch/gearbox

And a few other bits and pieces.


Thanks for the comments

Looks good Jay.
It'll be weird seeing you drive your cabby again.

Yeah roof was a mission to start with but once the first was off the second was alot easier!!

Big thanks to Guy for the help/continuing help on the car!

Hopefully will have some progress on wheels and audio this weekend.

It looked quite nice rolling behind you as we joined the A14.
Now get that US speccer sprayed up and mounted.
Then give the car a detail and add some new plates and it'll look mint.

There, that's all the compliments I can give in one day without self-harming.
I hope that pleases you. Sicko.
