Where's that one from? Looks good!

Thanks, I'm pleased with it, Used Royal Steering wheel previously but wasn't sure if Jack can do the flat bottom on the wheels? So got this one of The Bay, seller Called KRMTBD. Made offer and paid the money. B)

Yep, had mine done from RSW too. There seems to be a fair few who have moved the game on where RSW look like they still do the same ol' retrimming..

looks nice that, I couldn’t drive mine without the armrest though! how does the hydro dipped finish stand up to wear and tear? I’ve plastidipped mine and the rear ashtray bit where the kids put their feet on it has not fared well.

Thanks, Only just fitted it so no idea on wear n tear, but its been lacquered etc so assume will be quite sturdy. Its more of a project/Toy really so no kids allowed :lol: Yeah i do keep getting in and left arm drops as go to lean on it! ;)

Thanks Buddy, no I cleaned and sprayed them, then purchased the Decals and lawyered over top. Their not perfect but I’m happy with them. Just waiting for the discs to arrive then will fit. 👍

The calipers look good. They don't need a perfect finish hidden behind the wheels and unless you buy more open wheels, not a lot of them will show.

Thanks Buddy, yeah should look good when on. 👍 think I need to swap one of the bleeds/feed pipes as guessing bleeds need to be at highest point?

Really gooooooooooooood choice of car there mate.

I have the sport and would not swop it for the world !!!!  I had an SE before which was really special but the sport has won the day .lol. Some fool behind me did not stop for the ambulance but I walked away and the SE died.

They are such great cars to drive and if kept up with, are very reliable.

I have a set of MV 2`s but bought a set of BBS reps for my son`s wedding last year. (great excuse)

I have had a few injuries over the past year so both cars need some love but they can stand up to a year or so.
