Only got them on the front, seem alright, just tend to lose all feel in the back end a bit atm :lol: Need to get rid of the ditchfinder and P6000 :lol:

I will probably end up getting 2 spec 2's and stick the T1R's on with them, i'm sure they're alright but the rear isn't doing any justice at the mo.

Yeah I was on the ZSOC stand last year.

Had some time today. so I have given the car a wash over, i'm waiting til payday where hopefully I can get hold of some new cleaning products, I want the new dodo juice blue velvet wax, bilt hamber clay and some iron X, then i'll go over it fully.

I also had time to fit my fog light tints, such a pain in the bum to but I did it all on my own, getting the screws off the fogs and replacing them all and not leaving one or two missing haha. congratz to me!

PIcturesss. Car was the dirtiest i've ever had a car!

Just getting to that stage now where I need the coilovers on it! Still having some troubles with them but they should be ready soon.

Bar that, 5 weeks time i'll get myself a RRR splitter, and start looking at tyres/wheels I know what I want just work out the prices and when I can get them :) Doubt it'll be by FITP but FF for sure!

Looks nice mate!!
Is that a bit of rust I can see bubbling through on the rear arches?? Best get that sorted before it takes over cause then you'll have rear arches like mine and that's not fun :(

Thought you weren't modding this one... :whistle:

Yessss usual Ford rust, It'll be alright for a year or two, i'll just get it chopped out when I can on both sides, got a bit of bodyshop stuff to save for but i'll be fine for that soon enough. I'll get it all done in one go.

I was always going to do a bit to smarten it up :lol: not doing anything to the engine :( No money for it, If I could i'd SS4 it again! Miss them so much :lolz:

So i'm getting bodywork quotes soon and over the next two months i'll get that done as I need the pass rear quater sprayed so I can de-strip, makes sense to do the arches as well. Then i'll get my wheels.

Took some pictures of the car tonight, let me know what you think, also added my 3 other photos that I thought were really good.
