    They were done by The Wheel Specialist, I like that it gives a nice contrast with the black of the car.

    Small Island you passed me the other morning when I was dropping my daughter off. Was in the Lexus so didn't wave. The orange looks cool.

    The porting was done by Slick Bass, he normally does race bikes he is well respected within that field he has done a lot with WSB. It is the first time he has done a car head, he did get a little carried away but he likes his job!! I cant believe how clean he got it compared to when I gave it to him.

    I have a ADR N/A cam to go in as well. Just need the extra funds and only just got the car back a few weeks ago.

    It only had and needed a small skim. It had some welding at some point which looked like it was probably at the factory, either way Slick was happy with the quality of the welding. We discussed tidying it up but went with best leave it alone !!

    The very same I am lucky he is a friend of mine and based on the Island. He has done work on my bikes before so thought he would like the challenge of something different. He is a talented and great guy.

    Thanks but not such a problem on the Isle of Man the advantage of low crime rates. Also I have put the centre caps back on since taking the pics, so doesn't stand out as much.
