Yeah man she was pretty damn rough when I picked her up, but she was on bags in the ass so that was a major selling point thats why it was so low in all the photos, but they'll be going in my other car Smile

For those of you who I dont have on FB I have a few updates!

Theres now something inbetween the strut towers and it looks quite good there even if I do say so myself. Next up is to rewire this stupid fuse box and put the 5 speed back in!

That would have to be the best detailed/painted engine I've seen in a VL, subtle, but has an impact on the retina's you can't miss.
Can't wait to see this one in the flesh.
