    I like the SRI T's, I think keep it black, and do all the work under the bonnet. Maybe a leather retrim inside. Clokeys car is a good insperation for a black sri IMO

    depends what your going for mate if you fancy the standard look id say go for engine mods and a re-trim but if your going for a full out modified car have a quick peeky at clokey's car as said above

    Cheers for the comments guys.

    As said, its really down to your personal taste and what you want. Engine mods to get to 300bhp will be a few pennies anyway.
    Then if your going to do a respray in a different colour it, then fully stripped and sprayed is the only way to go.
