lol

Tbh I got there thinking of doing them all silver, but like last time I got distracted by the colour chart. Which just so happens to be the worst representation of colour ever!

I actually spotted something that had just been coated and held it against the car. I knew it'd be lary, wild and totally different and thought sod it! :D So I went with that. Once I got home with the wheels done I noticed they were very close to the Tesco bag sat next to them! :lol:

The same has been said by everyone! Me included. My mate saw me driving the other day and said he was blown away.

The attention these things draw everywhere, especially town is mental! I may aswell be driving around with a bright pink 6ft dildo on the roof! I get a lot of laughs (like I care!), lots of smiles, confused looks kids looking excited lol all sorts! And the ladies love them 8)

[quote name="Coxy"]Haha only takes like 15-20 mins so why not?! :D

so today if the weathers holds out its going lower.[/quote]

Hey Coxy, it looks like you won't be needing my headlights then.
I noticed you changed your Halo's without taking the front bumper off, i didn't know that was possible.

Have you ever changed the H1 bulbs on the Halo's i cannot seem to get behind and as there's so little room. :help:

i noticed that on Dans car too (luzyboi) his lights were so close to the beam in the engine bay. You would have to take off the whole bumper etc and remove the lights to change them. :)

Macca I don't know how low it is. It is really hard to say.

Might be worth measuring from a certain point on mine, Aidans and BLiTZs to see the difference. I think I will be dissapointed with the actual figure but the look it awesome.

Well I finally got some proper import sized plates. Same size as BLiTZ's, as close to real Jap plates as you can get IIRC. Little bit more JDM yo now! :D

Also got myself a new aeriel. Took the shitty richbrook off the day I got the car and haven't had an aeriel since! :lol: This is a replacement from autoleads for Toyota/Rover and fits the base perfectly Cut down to about six inches and the end glued back on. Cost £3 :)

Also got some 5mm spacers to make the rear wheels sit a little better. Down to ET37 at the back now. :)

Yeah much better. Never liked them but I really do think they look better now I've got some.

Me and BLiTZ were saying they make the car look lower and wider, whereas square make them look taller and skinnier.

Spacers were about £13 from Halfrauds. Saw em and thought feck it why not lol! Can't go much bigger though or there wont be enough meat on the threads.

Oh and watch this space. Yes there will be plate relocation, but no there wont be smoothness :wink:
