Cheers dudes.

Turbo will be done within good time, Want to get it running standard etc first, Get all the turbo bits together and then bolt it all on in one weekend.

It does need a good clean, Its covered in moss, Not a important job atm though.

So, Few hours free today, Fitted front brakes, haven't completely bleed them up yet, Couldn't be arsed

First up I was sick of looking at a wonky bumper, so got it sat half right lol. I'm waiting on arch trims before refitting the inner arches, then I will refit the bumper properly.


I do like how it sits now, Just need to get it on matching wheels lol. Once the engine etc is sorted I'm going to fit my MHW's, Since I haven't got around to refitting them on the 12v.


Just part of the epic cleaning job I have ahead of me


Then onto what I've just been doing....

(Showing off the slam panel too )

Stripping most of it for a few reasons, A to redo things me and Chris rushed on purpose to get it running Saturday. Then to Hopefully solve the running problem, And finally, to fit this:


I was going to fit my powerbox, But plans have changed on that for the moment, Need to get this on the road ASAP, And I want to buy another powerbox (Chris if you read this, I want it, Just can't find my phone )

Lots of writing and pics for fuck all really

Never wrap a cast mani!
Will be a future job once its on the road, Since I think the sump leaks, And to fix that, would mean removing the exhaust, so two birds one stone

Popped to vauxhall for this, What a waste of packaging
