progress so far



Rims, 15x7 front 215 tyres, back 16x7.5 225 tyres ( all thanks to ebay )


blingin chrome wheel arch trims, extra tail light garnish behind licence plate on the boot.


too much stereo gear as well :)


will drop it on its guts soon, and later next year consider the engine conversion.

sold to an ex-workmate, who soon after had a mental breakdown, left it in a shopping centre carpark, cops eventually had it towed for scrap i believe
