Looks like an awesome starting point mate, I love that colour.

I would change out those rear lights asap tho, make the rear end look so tacky!
Yeah the colour was one of the reasons why i bought it, and there's no problem with the paintwork anywhere, not even a tiny scratch :D
But yeah, first on my to-do list is exhaust and new taillights, not sure which first. :)
Cheers for the opinion

Thanks Jonesy, im getting the stock ones and tinting them a few shades darker around the important parts, ive only seen it on one car and it looks wicked.
Or just keep them stock, not sure yet. But im f*#king the Altezzas off for sure one way or another haha.
Im leaning away from the SS kit too, i reckon it'll look like dog balls with my colour. Just a hunch
