This car is f**king mint! Im not such a fan of after market body kits, especially not on a saloon. But I have to say this is one classy beast.

I'm impressed at how together you are on the mechanical front. You seem to just piss your way through the work, with no dramas. I'm one jealous thingy!

Can I ask, is the font on your number plates legal? And if so, where the f**k can I get some?

Keep posting dude. I really enjoyed reading this thread, despite feeling rather envious at your diy genius and rather more, my complete and utter f**king lack of it!

Haha Cheers mate,
Its an old car so its easy to work on  :grin:
The number plate is an ebay jobby lol never been pulled for them and been through two mot's.

Theres still more to come, my mates helping me detailing it soon. Wheels will be refurbed and maybe changed to something different and more power  :tongue:

Thanks Chris its a working progress mate but its getting there slowly, once the injectors and maf are sorted its all cosmetic until im happy.
