Only you Kildare culchies could strap a car down like that


You know my thoughts on this car Steven,i love it.although i still maintain you should have just Turbo'd the V6.

The conversion on this is factory a real credit to Phil,he has a knack of squeezing 1.8Ts into things.

I was down in the body shop yesterday evening and forgot the camera ,the boot ,2 doors and bonnet have been removed and the new bumpers ,trims and skirts were all ready to be base coated today.New front bumper moulding with the running lights had been cut and rewelded to suit the bumper with the number plate indentation in place.
