Hi all, as I have owned her for a while now,I thought i'd better put up some pics. This is how she looked when we first saw her (bullet holes were free of charge)

:Edit:

ready for when my alzheimers kicks in, heres a list of things iv done to the car and stuff i have planned


done:
spax coilovers
twin exit exhaust
engine starter button
shiny switches
sparco junior seats
securon harnesses
T R lane GPV roll bar
T R lane harness bar
T R lane door bars
Project m fibreglas crash pod gauge holder
Project m fiberglass rear ducktail spoiler
some front splitter
offset front number plate bracket
smoothed aerial (currently just removed with ducktape underneath
)
wired in side reflectors to light up with sidelights

to do list....

lower the dam thing!
roll and flare arches
single exit exhaust
delete rear fog and move to cluster
fresh coat of red paint

and thats it soo far








Since then work has started on improving her. The dash pad guage pods in the next pic are courtesy of Russell at projectM and I can't speak highly enough of the quality of his products

Hi ya mate just wondering if that spoiler is an original and where did you get it from. Been looking high and low for one but settled with a fibre glass one
hiya butt
it a fiberglass one from project m..... you can get it from the same place as i got the crashpad:)
definetrly worth investing in IMO

bit more progress made last night, finished off rolling and flaring the arches.

after discovering there has been some shitty filling around my arches i decide me and the old man should take it off and start again


the photos were taking after we had removed the filler and high spots and gave it a quick skim:

Took advantage of my snow day today and made some more progress ready for the respray. Here's what I got done...



Second skim flatted back



Removed the paint on the last dodgy arch



Got the one arch in red oxide primer



Completely flat down one side



Filled the front of the spoiler and blend it into the body



And that's it!
