Default Steve MK2 XR2 Turbo project updates 30-10-09

This is my MK2 XR2 Turbo project

At the moment I'm replacing/renewing some of the panels on the XR2 to make it mint before I put in the RST engine and running gear etc. I'm also gonna make a few upgrades here and there and a few choice mods (nothing too mad) for now and it should be done sometime just after new year 2010.

Heres some pics on the project. I will post more up as my project evolves. Thanks for looking
