    Im not known for my patience, but on this i have been very layed back as i can see a huge transformation and attention to detail, be a different story if it was summer or my only car 😆 but wow what a car it will be for the summer once its fully completed gone OTT and OCD over this car, originally cost me £10300 and already spent around £4500 with more ideas in the pipeline plus booked in for a 4K respray in the springtime obviously wont see money back on this car but im not looking to sell anyway, i will have it just the way i want it... in time i dont have any hobbies taking up my time and money apart from my 2 cars plus want to spent all my money before i die and kids squabble on whos getting how much 😆 they cant fight over whats not there 😉 bumper will be coming off completely when i go to fit new headlights anyways

    @Herbie yeah ive learned from bad experience with the resistors, fitted LEDs to my lorry with these and melted the headlight casing, then i read the instructions on mounting them to metal base...DOH reason these where expensive as it was only company that would post up to Scottish highland and islands rest stipulated they dont/wont post up my way...so bite the bullet and payed more to a company that would, flasher relay ordered THANKS for that info

    Ps car finish has been delayed as was expecting to pick up yesterday, but a supplier and a disgruntled ex worker (who hide some trim parts that never got colour coded and only found after rest of parts had been fitted ) so these parts still need painted up (rear headrest trim) but everything in hand now so fingers crossed for pick up a week today (only because i work away from home and not back till friday)

    Sorry for all photos but am amazed at transformation from full beige interior to black and red, only parts being renewed are the leather seats and seatbelts everything else is orginal parts but been flexi plasti spray painted black popped in by yesterday to take of mrear view mirror for it to be colour coded as no one could figure out how to get it off windscreen but with a little help from neil E, ive got it off (dead simple when you know how lol) think once ive picked it up next friday (hopefully) i run it for a week or two before i park it up in my garage and start putting my parts i have in garage onto it new headlights steering wheel also get wood trim wrapped (humming n Harrington on colour to wrap yet) either going carbon effect black/silver or piano black or match it with the wine red on seats, will wait till ive got car and get some tester sheets to see what merges in with rest of interior was thinking of tint wrapping headlights but wow they look awesome as is so for time being no tint also got some DRL combined indicator bulbs to fit but will need to get a relay fitted so i can switch drls off at night time as think they will be far to bright and dazzle at night, then again maybe i wont lol

    Already on MeisterR coil overs and custom exhaust.... running wise its perfect, well will be when i change front brake pads as they squeal like a banshee at low speed until warmed up (not all that old but extremely noisy) went to see car yesterday and was hoping it was going to be ready, but unfortunatly not, been promised it WILL be ready to be picked up Thursday 15th with extra discount on final price as hes already 2wks over the orginal finish date, due to staff holidays and a supplier cocking up a order Should be awesome once finished
