Very tidy, you pleased with the door cards?

Love the retro speaker box and the stickers (but then I would say that wouldn't I).

Enjoy cruising in the sun and leaving a little trail of oil everywhere you go... (saw your post on VZI!)

Here's the finished article! Ride height tracking and everything have now been set thanks to lots of hard work and late evenings from Liam and Kevo!

Really happy with the ways its sitting now!









Now just got to clearance the underside of my car!

Cv boots and gearbox oil change on the list next as well as sort out some rust issues on the doors and wings!

Thanks again to Liam and Kev for putting up with my inability/stupidity to work on cars Laughing

See some of you at wyke down tomorrow in the rain!!

Good work mate looks really cool. Bet your learning all the time getting your hands dirty.
Gearbox oil is easiest to change with a funnel extended with a section of hosepipe
See ya

Yeah definately need to get some better pictures, will get onto that on sunday hopefully!! Was looking at the pictures the other day thinking how much better it looks, can't believe how stock and high it was haha! Rear luggage rack would look sweet on it as well, think I need some new wings first though as my headlights started bouncing off the other day! Seems to be driving a little better now though mate, Steering is a little lighter and is self centering a little now. Guess its just the new ball joints are starting to wear in a bit now?

Once again thanks for the help mate! Pricing up beer for big bang!!
