HiBeen on the forum for a while but never really updated this one much until now!!

So last year I got the car for the Gf....or Ex as I now call her


Anyway got the car, had a big amount of plans and bold moves that never worked out

Anyway Im gonna shut up and let the pictures do the talking

More will come of this as I lost interest in doing the car because of other reasons but now I am going strong on it

Enjoy





























































More To Follow Hopefully in next few weeks

Alot under way all for both a major scottish show Cleanfest (follow link below) & Edition 38

See any of you guys there!

Now that's modifying a car!

I don't think I've ever seen anyone pretty much take the entire thing apart before! Kudos to you sir! Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Well you are a Brave man I Salute you I did a Volkswagen 13/03 Beatle up many years ago ,the difference was
It wasn't new ,like yours I think I would have a go but a bit to old for all that now I bet when you finish your dream will be all worth it
I did take photos from start to finish might put them on the forum one day my idea was to fit a Porsche engine in
But at the time could not find one suitable well good luck with your car Regards Phill

My Surgery is in Newton Mearns though I'm often at Ross Hall too



BTW is the purple cylinder to do with air springs or have you fitted nitro

They are a great wheel, just a bit too much of a default choice. Why roll into a show with the same wheels as about 85% of every other car there?

There's so many wheels to choose from, going for BBS is too easy. Folks need to be a bit more creative and imaginative.

That said, no doubt they'll look great.
