    My latest mods.....(not 56k friendly, but IMO worth the wait.)

    For those who didn't see my car at PVS.
    He's some pics of the mods i was busy doing before the show.

    Some of you may remember this thread pre-PVS.
    Well the job in hand that weekend was these.




    I'd painted my brake Calipiers RED and hated them, as they didn't go with the subtle mods to my car.

    So they got a treat to some Gloss black instead. I am ALOT happier with the dark moody look.

    I also picked up a Raid Strutbace from J90 RDN on the way back from the Vauxhall Speed show in May, and was lucky it fitted on with very minor mods. I also pianted the bits on my engine cover black.



    My old sub shield had done it's job and was broken in a few places so a replaced it with a thicker/stronger one. This will light up once i've corrected the wiring to the red LED's imbedded in the outer ring.


    and the major change was at the rear.


    When i bought the car in Feb last year, it already has the Magnex twin square back box on it. I was a nice extra but not the look i wanted.

    So, one morning and a trip up to ExhaustUK in Sheffield. 4 hours and a long walk round MeadowHell later, I drove back with this.




    It sits really nicely up to the back bumper too.


    Sound wise, it's deep and can be quite loud. It also is plesantly quiet when cruising.

    I think, it's looking how i want it to now.


    Coments welcome.

    No, it's a 5"x3" the bigger one is 6"x4" which looked too big IMO on my car.
