massive update year overdue
car has had two boots on it

then a wheel bearing seized




then the water pump died on me so that got paid for new belt ect

shortly after


as the same time as boot one i fitted 2.0 brakes

then seen these cheap and purchased them
not fitted yet



fitted a rear brace and painted plastics black



then i cleaned it








think that is all

I know theres not alot you can dow without a cage and 3 point harnesses but ideally then need to be mounted at shoulder height and each shoulder strap crossed. it spreads the load in a crash.
As they are then harnesses will go tight and pull you downwards into your seat potentially breaking your back :-/

Sorry to put a dampener on things, Car looks really good though
I think the wheels would look awesome anthracite
