    Yea, im trying to fix it all up... Getting there slowly! Haha. Next week will be a tranny service.
    Then the next week will be the relay thing for the air con fan speed.
    Eventually i'll get it re gassed and checked for leaks.
    Then it will eventually get lowed. Haha.
    Then tinting.
    Then the biggest saving one. Bigger mags.

    Haha.
    It's not that hard to do.
    Rip the car up on a jack (choke the opposite wheel diagonally from the wheel your working on)
    Rip the wheel off
    Rip the brake caliper off
    Tape up where the brake pads touch (optional)
    Tape around the area to make sure there isnt any overspray.
    Spray with base coat
    Wait 10-15 mins
    Spray with preffered colour.
    Wait 15-20 mins
    Put back together.
