been awhile since ive updated this so here goes haven't done alot tho :lol:

couldn't decide whether to fly eye tint or subtle tint my headlights so tried both (i had some flyeye left from when i did my standard headlights)

Image

Image

Image

ill went with the subtle tint in the end tho and washed + polished the car

Image

Image

Image

ive been working on this for my son too

Image

Image

Image

not finished yet tho got a few more things to do.

also i've made my own custom front camber plates but i haven't taken any pictures or fitted them yet

been busy with the car done this work a few weeks ago now, i finished making my custom camber mounts and installed them along with new front coilovers (shocks were blown in the old ones) and added some rear camber aswell which ended up being 1.5 degrees front camber and 4 degrees rear camber :? :lol:.
4 degrees was abit more than i was planning but i haven't noticed any increase in tyre wear so far and the rear toe is perfect :D
anyway pics!
