Drag racer styling FTW.

Right,

Little update........

I did take some pics of this but for some reason the camera is playing up so they'll have to come later  :angry:

Been to the garage today and had it up on the ramps for the following:

New front discs & pads

Replace the aged stainless exhaust with a full Milltek  :cool:, found out that the old exhaust was Powerflow up to the back box which is Magnex. The powerflow part was goosed but the Magnex back box is still in good useable condition so that will be cleaned up and put up for sale  :cool:

Fiddle about with the central locking on the boot  :angry:

That's it for now, the new fog lights haven't arrived yet so that will be for another day :wink:

Actually it's quieter than the old exhaust which I'm pleased about Mate (does pop a little though on the overrun though  :wink::smiley:

F**k knows what's wrong with the camera  :angry:, me and technology don't get on at all  :sad:

Pity the fogs hadn't arrived while I had a nice dry garage to work in  :sad:

Still, it's two more ticks on the list today  :grin:

Well, I only managed to retrieve 2 pictures from the camera :angry: :angry:

First one explains the reason why the exhaust was knackered  :laugh: :laugh:



And the second shows where it had started to go  :sad:



Unfortunately, the pictures I took of the discs are not on the camera but they would have shown the 3mm lip around the edge  :shocked:..........completely goosed

The tip of the Milltek stick out a little further than the Magnex did, but as the two exhausts wouldn't mate up then the milltek stays and the Magnex has been sold on  :sad:

Right,

Got a nice Christmas bonus from work and I'm going to have the wheels refurbed after christmas in a cream colour  :smiley: so I went on the bay and bought some scalpels and some cream colour 7yr outdoor vinyl  :wink:

My 16v grill badge went from this:





to this:




I have to finish the trimming to get it looking a little neater and then move on to the rear badge when the weather warms a little  :smiley:

Right, the boxing day boredom has set in so I thought I would put one of my presents in the car  :wink:

Took this knackered old thing out (sorry for the crap picture  :sad:)




And put this in  :smiley:



It was nice to find that the person who put the previous stereo in only had a kitchen knife and a selection of hammers for the installation  :angry: Managed to sort it but was a hassle.
