    Cleaned the GSI/ progress thread

    hi peeps i bought the car in late december and hated it the way it looked the previous owner painted the roof bonnet and boot green and had a nasty exhaust on it, i have always been into subtle mods anyway,

    heres how i bought it;






    heres how it is now still loads do tho::


















    things still left to do are:

    get rid off that exhaust,
    get coileys,
    refurb wheels either black/white or silver,
    paint centre console white,
    fit badges when they finally arrive,
    get a proper GSI bumper because i found out yesterday its just a crappy fiberglass one.
    OH and buy some tyreshine.

    Nice work there mate. Did look horrific before, but looks sweet now.

    Still, not sure what this has to do with detailing?
