Um im not sure on when as my plan has changed a bit... step 1 gona drop the 2l in next week and use the ho inlet and desk ecu then.... step 2 fit throttle boddies and get it set up on a RR..... step 3 new sill and driverside rear wheel arch fill dents get it in primer etc.. Step 4 body shop respray black or im toying with the idea of painting it myself with a roller n brush and spending a few days cutting it back and polishing to save cash as im guessing a respray would set me back a grand i havnt got where as a tin of car paint =50 quid and shit loads of hours polishing :)

shout! noticed u were looking for a ho inlet... u think u will get one for next week!?

sounds like good plans! u doing the sills etc urself?

ive seen it done before, gloss paint with a roller, flatted back and laquered, looked amazing. so could be done, just time consuming and major major effort
