Default collecting my 3dr (updated )

Hi peeps

just a few pics of the 3dr which has just been painted

these pics are take with my phone so they are not the best quality


firstly rear bumper rested on the back








pics of the front








drives side without kit


















all we have to do tonight is fit front bumper and passanger side body kit



at a later date ill have to have the fin and the tail gate painted

as this wasn't done because i couldn't get hold of new buttons to replace the old one



ill take a few more tonight when its complete


cheers marco

I'm sure it's a 3dr on an E Plate and it's DEFINATELY still RWD Matt

Marco, i'm glad to see Blue Thunder back on the scene mate, really is a properly specced car, everytime I see it I wan't to buy it!

I've got a right old pic of it somewhere, i'll dig it out and post it up later

Hi lads

yes it's still rwd and always will be

yes the door were moldings was taken off and the whole car was painted ...... except the top fin and the tailgate ...... as that will be done in a weeks time

my mate Kevin @ Ford ,bristol street painted the car
to be fair he has done a good job

heres Kevin the posser



he is the lad that is going to paint my escort cossie


heres a few pics with a decent camara nothing specail tho
































im happy with the car atleast it's had a fresh coat of paint

all the tiny bits have all been done thats the mainthing
im not into buffy crap all i want is a tidy car it don't have to be mint for what i want to do with the car

thats drive the fook out of it everyday what Ford made it for it's only a car thats all it is


cheers Marco

erm good question

in the new yr it's going to karls to be live mapped to get the most out of the Gt30 turbo

i suppose once it's mapped ,it would be rude not to have it out on track


spent loads on these bloody cars ill have to stop if i had never spent so much on bloody cars i would be loaded


im 1/2 thinking about selling all my cars and buy a brand new Audi Rs4 salloon ,im getting too old
i change my mind like the weather tho so take that with a pinch of salt
