    Last weekends mods...

    Saturdays mod... New lights ...

    First





    I know they ain't everyones taste, but they are growing on me. I have HIDs on delivery from china, which should hopefully make an appearance shortly.

    Sundays mods...

    First off, many thanks to Kev and Marti for the hard labour, while I topped up my tan. lol.

    Task 1 : Get it lowered ... Jamex 40mm springs - £67 ebay









    Task 2: Rear anti roll bar ...



    Task 3: Survive the trip home ... lol.

    Must say the RARB is great fun. Sounds scary when you hear about kicking the back out, but once you catch it for the first time ... oooh its so good. Like driving a different car. IMO its the most fun you can have without a visit to a magistrate afterwards.

    Anyhow I arrived home and went to put the car in the garage ... FAIL!!!
    I nearly ripped the cat off while reversing into the garage. Enter Exibit A. After an hour of sawing, drop kicking and hammering the post finally succumbed and I was able to put the car in the garage.

    Exibit A: The post after ultra violence had been applied

    Nice choice on springs - get saving for the matching shocks, they'll transform the car again!

    Still stuck on the RARB myself, I kinda like the back end staying put on the ground

    Jamex springs - £79.99 new delivered for reference:

    http://www.toys4cars.co.uk/index.php..._327_2490_6706

    I got mine from them at the excellent price of £55 delivered in a sale last year but they've gone up since.
