    been a long time - my new project

    good morning guys

    its been quite a while since i last posted anything here on AOC.
    Many of you will remember that after PVS last year i returned by coupe to standard. which meant selling my mirror polished AMG wheels, custom lower springs, m3 vadar headrests and ICE etc.





    I then bought an RX8 for the mrs and for me to use it as my weekend toy.

    i soon got bored of the rx8, as its power to fuel consumption ratio was just crap.

    so a new project was on the cards

    i'll stop talking now and just let the pics do the talking...






































































    and one with a sneak peek of the engine bay before PVS...



    comments welcome guys. its not always been fun, as you can imagine. with a car of this age alot of things needed replacing. from the sunroof, to washer pumps, the restoration etc
    but were 2 weeks away from PVS so im looking forward to showing her off

    thanks

    It might just be me but i think that would really suit some AMG wheels!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
