Feb, next year.

Anyone want to trade engine covers? This one came with dark purple ones happy to do a straight swap for standard. All im going to do is end up polishing these anyway so if anyone's got a purple car.

Hey I think the rim's are crap them self! If anyone wants them let me know, they got pretty new tyres to.

The car will be moving to my dads place on the weekend where it will be kept to work on, just need to get a engine stand and crane now.

Started my usual pulling the car apart for no apparent reason, I removed what ever **** box alarm was installed that didnt work anyway.


And the roof looks ALOT better then the one in the V6, this now confirms this car has NO rust! Its starting to look better and better to just keep it....


Anyway can someone tell me how the hell i get these wheels off?

most auto stores that sell wheel nuts can sell u an adapter 4 them that goes on ur cross bar or even a ratchet but i would suggest the cross bar 1 cause unless u have a good ratchet u will break it... btw nice ride.... a bit of a sleeper
