    Well guy's i am pleased to inform you that my pride n joy is now sitting in the bodyshop getting a much needed make over

    Both Rear wheelarches are being cut out and new ones welded in their place
    rear arches will be rolled to give a little more clearance for the tytres as i lowered it some 40mm ish all round (very very tight when the car is fully loaded)
    and then finally a rear quarter panel respray to match everything up.

    Also having my CCFL 800k angel rings fitted and last but not least a set of goodridge brake hoses to replace the rubber flexi ones
    i am really excited and can't wait until next tuesday to get it back
    will post some pics soon

    Sorry for the delay i have been given a price of £200 ish for arches cut out and new ones welded in inc. respray.
    £35.00 for the arches to be rolled each side & £30 for the angel eyes to be fitted and wired in . the job is been done by a mates mate and got a bit of discount
    will post some pics when i get it back
