epic changes there, must feel nice driving that.

im not feeling the red piping on the speedlines, thats my own opinion though.

some dish and spacers would give you a heap more road presence to bring out the red paintwork

where do you go from here?

@dalester as far as i can remember they were advanti alloys did like them at the time but when i changed the look of the cart just didnt suit it.

@ enzo the alloys are getting changed for something jap with a bit of a dish. and im curently doing a bit of custom work on a rear splitter and painting the front lip red and me and my dad are making a rear cage for it after that im not sure

thanks phil its taken a while to get into ok condition it is in now

no a guy in mx5 bought them and smashed them into peices

as for the skirts we got masking tape and taped up where theskirts go put the clips on the skirtsput a bit of paint on the tip of each clip and put it up on the tape and drill where the marks are, take tape off waxoil over the holes clip skirts on

the way me and my dad did mine
