MOT success today, disconnected the faulty BRM wiring loom to get through the lighting test and popped next door to the Phirm to pick up these...........

Ha! - think after trying out the Exips and the RA's I have solved the black car wheel dilemma, TRL Inters era favourite wheel for an old TRL Inters car works well methinks.

wheel bolts re-torqued after powder coat, caps on and then an hour long blast in this one - the new exhaust sounds great compared to old one, much better handling on et30 rims too.

some crap iphone shots with caps on -
