    Here are some pics. Been busy doing some tidying up. Trying to get it all looking a bit more original and i think im slowly getting there. I've had all the pipework powder coated blak along with the grilles. I cut the grilles out to fit the bumper and then 'glassed on some brackets and im suing dzus 1/4 turn fasteners to hold the grilles in place.

    like the idea of powder coating too, makes it look very stealth indeed /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    The blue cap thing is the top of an air pump...which power my 120db air horn! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    the black pipes with blue connectors is the boost pipes from the turbo ging down to the intercooler inlet.

    Thanks for all the comments! There are still so many little bits and pieces to get done but its geting there. Modified the MAF housing and removed all the screens an its made a difference. No more power but pulls harer at the top end and also is now happy cruising along at like 110-120 whereas before it would get a bist flustered and too hot when crusing... Still good for 150+mph runs /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    No i;ve just had the rear all colour coded. Not keen on too much fibreglass. It certainly does look aggressive in the rear view mirror!
