not updated on here lately so thought id add a bit

cars currently off the road, fuel tank is out and has been modified to allow fitment of the oem 1.8t fuel pump/sender, also sealed the tank with slosh.

rear beam removed for new bushes, powder coated bits and rear disc conversion.

i also got twitchy and started on a wide arch kit, this may take some time though.

hopefully back on the road by march.

New seats, picked up these recaro’s originally fitted to a bmw e21. Will fabricate my own seat frames/ guides as I’m not too keen on what I’ve seen on the market.

Wouldn't have thought this color would look as slick as it does. Very clean, Good stuff.

glad you like the car mate.
the current wide arch kit i have will always be available, i may make another at some point of a different design, but its a big undertaking and takes a lot of time/money, i have a number of other products to get finished before i even think about another big kit.
