Welcome to the site.
Very nice car man.
I like that first pic the best, where is that?
A little tip, if you use the direct link from imageshack (under the share options) you'll be able to embed the image on the forum using the image link function.

Lovely looking Mr2, did you import it yourself. well wear and welcome to the site.

Now we need to talk about the membership fee, I will take the one on the left and we can call it quits.

Pics edited, was getting a headache looking at all those links myself! Cheers

That pic was taken at dromana bridge, near cappoquin in Waterford, nice spot but it's busier than it looks making it pretty tricky to take photos

Re: My GTS 4 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 57
Right so, said i'd throw up a few pics, been tipping away at little things over the last week or two but all these small jobs will eventually add up to a car i'm happy with (i hope!! )

Picked up this stuff to see was it any good....

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG




5mins of a little bit of elbow grease turned this....

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



into this....

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG





also gave the 2 a little speaker upgrade.....
old

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



old v new

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG




also FINALLY got around to fitting my foglights (don't need to tell ye what a b*itch this was...), they're the steering fogs and aren't connected up yet as my buddy is an auto-electrician and is fitting HIDs for me this week so will get him to sort them aswell


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG





_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG




was never really a fan of wind deflector things on wipers but said i'd give these a lick of paint, one on the left is actually just grime and dirt!!! one on the right after a quick rub with a scotch pad

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



on the car after primer, paint and lacquer

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



and not forgetting the gratuitous post wash pic (don't worry, t-bar was on when i washed, not completely mad :P

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG




as i said all very small things but needed to be done :yes:

Re: My GTS 4 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 57
Thanks lads, couple of other little up dates as of today

xenon bulbs for fogs (still a bit yellow but should get whiter as coating wears off) and 4300k hi/lo HIDs. Went for the lower ones as i wanted the whitest light and not too gone on the bluer end of the scale but everyone has different tastes.....


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


finally had my turbo timer put in aswell, blitz unit with greddy harness bought new from gtschris. Decided to hide it as want to keep interior looking relatively factory for the moment


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


And that's it for the moment :lol:
