@cozzy, I think they do one for light colours as well, I find it brilliant on dark colours
@got92tubby, cheers mate, I was surprised how easily they came up, will probably my do them again but hadn't much time to spend on them today, this was more of a test run than anything else

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 58
cheers lads, aiming to have 3-4k going so I can be comfortable, petrol will be split between driver/passenger so won't be too bad that way. will be heading over with 2 R32 skylines (one of which has an epic built engine, carbon boot floor, actual carbon roof etc etc etc!) and one camper/van carrying a turbo'd,cynos engined boxy starlet, should be interesting

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 58
right so lads, another little update....

I was offered a 92 import mr2 a week or so ago but I decided against it as i'd prefer to have just one sw20 to concentrate on Happily enough my friend who has a breakers yard decided to buy it so I get to buy the bits I want without having to store the whole car, thank god for good mates

anyway I took a few pics of the stuff I'll be taking. Ignore the dirt of the items as car hasn't been washed inside or out in months, hopefully most of the stuff will come up nice enough to use

door cards with tweeters..

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


finally going to have retractable mirrors, mirrors not pictured as I forgot to grab a pic....


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


Bonnet as it is in a little better nick than mine....

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Oem Boot Mat with tear unfortunatley, rest of stuff in pic is only crap sitting on it...

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


More steering Fogs with all relays etc.....

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG



_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


Glovebox, pics make it look worse than it is, i'll give it a polish and see how it turns out...

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


And cool jdm switches...one for the steering fogs and the other i'm assuming is for the locking system but if anyone wants to fill me in on how this works i'd appreciate it!

Bit of exciting news today, I found an incredibly rare and authentic JDM part in my car today when I was changing my glovebox. Dont think this was a factory option but maybe some one can confirm...here are the pics.....

Re: My GTS 5 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 58
right so boredom and having a dodgy radio lying around got the better of me over the weekend. I know it looks a bit strange with the 2 cd players but it was just for a bit of fun. Boost controller not hooked up yet but said i'd make a little holder for it
