      I like the look also on Walts car too but not going to do the same. In other news went to go order the two rear wheels and realised someone got my CC number and open a itunes account and charged some on it. So had to cancel the card right there and now have to wait till I get my new card to order the rears.

      Would be nice to see someone come up with something different around here but that would be too much to ask for...

      Those center caps just ruin it for me with these wheels.

      its a 2.5" exhaust and tip. the damage was from the PO loading onto a trailer damage or something, always kicked around the idea of side skirts just to cover it up.

      finaly spent some time just doing the littlethings like re-painting the engine cover, getting the strut caps on and geting the raintry cover on

      so finaly got the bay sprayed and cleaned up, need to clean up the break booster and a few other things.

      Got a Mk3 Vr6 rad installed, able to weld tabs on the frount sub frame and push the rad up rather giving more room for the motor. which now has TT Cams and short runner intake.

      Paint the white engine cover like R2D2 it would complete the white rado look.
