    Well,:yahoo: finally got it back from the paintshop and really pleased with the result. Few buffer trails from bad machining, but other than that a good job.

    Once again thnaks to everyone for their help in sourcing bits and part numbers, advice, etc.

    What you think?

    Well i've only been suspended but i've been there long enough to know the in's and out's and when they want to fire some one. No reason yet mate all they said was gross misconduct.
    Lol i went to nandos down the bay yesterday and to see transformers so that cheered me up :) Still cant get over how nice the colour of your car is in the sun. Any other mods planned? How much it cost you in total if you dont mind me asking?

    Thanks
