Why oh why do you have stockies on the back?


Apart from that it looks like a good starting point

Thanks fella's, mods are coming slowly, but atleast they are happening.

the only reason I have stockies on the back was to pass rego cause I got them cheap from the wreckers, a better option IMO than buying new tyres cause the tread on both of them was above 90%. Soon im gonna take them into work and change the tyres back to the berlina rims, and then hopefully get some new rims :)
I don't like the look of it, but its the only way i can drive untill i can swap the tyres over.

Recently changed the waterpump, very easy thanks to some handy threads off this forum. Seems to have hopefully fixed a small leak as the old one was pretty worn.
There still seems to be some loss of water/coolant when the engine cools down, I'll take it into work soon so i can get a good look underneath.

Yay, got my newish tail light today, the reflector is pretty worn, but it makes it so much more appealing than what it used to look like :D
Also painted my stockies a nice alloy silver, and whilst yes I am expecting to get flamed by some becuase they are not original stockies, IDC..It will do untill i get some new rims, or proper chaser rims with some nice fat rubber :)
