    Might be worth biting the bullet and purchasing some of your own.. if you're going to be modifying your car, you'll need tools to hand all the time. It's hard relying on other people for them!

    Even if you spend £10 on cheap crap from B&Q or Asda.. they'll get the job done. If you're looking to be more serious about it, getting the more expensive stuff from B&Q or if you want to be really posh, nip into Halfrauds and get some of the real big-boy sets of tools

    Modifying is great... you can spend as little or as much as you want

    if the paint is pealing ( if you done it urself ) then its down to not prepairing the area correctly m8.. thats all..

    its all about practise but if you got the money to get someone else to do it then why no a suppose!

    im a tight ******* tho!
