    Friday 30 May work :)

    Had the pics done for my TV feature. The day started off badly when I thought i had a puncture on the way, only to find the wheel bolts were loose - luckily i pulled over and got Jo to bring the jack and toolkit down to tighten them. The rest of the day was spent <60mph as anything over that ended up in nightmare vibration through the car. Checked on saturday thinking the wheel was buckled or damaged only to find the £80 eibach spacers i had have failed and cracked on the casting when they mount over the hub. Very very lucky really in hindsight !

    Anyways a couple of locations were discussed, checked and then settled upon Calshot right down on the solent. Ideal as i have tried to use local companies to do the work, so nice that the shoot is based around the area too. The pics below were just shot on my digi camera nothing special.











    Big Thanks to Dan the photographer, and Matt for doing the write up. Top guys and hope it comes it well

    Its closure for me, as post PV the brakes and turbo will be swapped (promise danny ) for standard items, and the car broken to be sold and replaced. Hopefully the replacement will be here for Billing
