Nice one mate, make sure you get some pics up though as these things don't usually work without them

Plans sound good apart from the fluorescent bits, especially wheels

Haha class , good ladd Jamie! why isnt it that easy for me ? :S

Anyway a mini update is over due ,

Sold my 205 challenge car ....

on the upside it means... plenty money for the BLUE BUSS


So on Friday i decided i would buy a few things for it......


- KN Panel filter
- Witec Fully adjustable coil-overs (TX - high specs)
- Goodridge brake hoses
- Black Dimond Drilled and groved front discs
- Black Dimond Performance front pads
- Whitline anti roll bars (front and rear)
- OMP Strut braces (front and rear)
- Mocal oil catch tank
- VX performance inlet manifold (just for now, decided i would get camms and TBs at same time)
- Control arm polly bushes
- Rear axle polybushes

Just waiting for the postman now

I was wondering if anyone knows of any pictures on here of front whiteline antiroll bar setups? (wondering if i need to buy more polly bushes or if they come with evrything you need ? )

much appreciated if you do.....
