I still havent got the bonnet painted, its in the garden covered in tiny foot prints and scratches from next doors cat  :angry:  I was browsing ebay about a month ago and I saw a really nice shiny black bonnet, but it was £345  :shocked: why???  ahh... carbon fibre...  :shocked: CARBON FIBRE   :drool: 

 :cry: I should be posting pics now but it hasn't turned up yet, its been 5 bloody weeks  :sad:

EDIT: I canceled the order in the end and eventually got my money back  :rolleyes: Lesson learned, I wont be using ebay for this kind of purchase anymore  :smiley:

So I spent the money on some wheels instead  :cool: I'm off for a drive through the countryside tomorrow so I'll find a nice spot and take a few piccies.

This is starting to become a yearly update by the looks of things  :rolleyes:

I didnt realise it had been so long since my last update, oh well  :grin:

Driving back from cornwall lastyear my downpipe broke at the flex joint, after lots of umming and arring i finally deceided to stump up for a stainless 4 branch, I got one from HOT TUNIG in belgium via their ebay shop  :cool:



once that arrived i realised it wasnt really gonna work with my standard exhaust, so i took the car down to my local Powerflow spcialist for a full 2.5" system  :cool:   i've got an MOT soon so I'll get some under car pics when its up on the ramps  :wink:



I've also darkened up the front end a bit more, I brought some tinted X-hair headlights and spots but found that the spots wouldnt fit into the mk1 grill   :undecided: I'm using a clipper grill for now but I really dont like it, I'm going to work out how to get the spots into the mk1 grill somehow  :wink:      (Its suitably LOW I'm only just able to get a clipper lighter under the front  :cool: )



The bonnets all sorted now, but i've still got that stupid bit of white on the wing  :rolleyes:  I'll get to it eventually  :laugh:


What else  :undecided:

 :evil: Bit more bass......

I've replaced the Silverstone tyres that came on my wheels with Yokohama AS01's all round  :smiley:


I think thats about it really, no breakdowns, nothings needed fixed, it doesn't need anything else doing to it  :grin:   well not yet anyway, i still think about turbo's quite a bit :evil:


I'm planning to get out to a few shows/drag strips and track days this year so updates should be a bit more regular soon  :smiley:
