    haha lol i use cable ties?? why would you want anything else????? easy to get off when loading onto the trailer and if and tap them off anyting or hit a gravel trap it should make it easier for them to pop off too :)

    is the car satin black and the bumpers matt black? or is it because the satin black shows up drifferently on plastic not metal?
    could do with some sweet rimmage also :)

    its matt. tractor paint.... the bumpers were painted a day before the car. and the pictures were taken an hour after it was painted.....

    ahh the rims go round and round........ it will do me.. the pink rims on the front are staying as pink will be my signiture colour. there will also be graphics on the car in the coming weeks....

    The engine was sitting on the shed floor for a few months as funds were non exsistant at that time.... after a month or two. i managed to scrape up a few pound and got a new Exciedy 3 Paddle Clutch from Drive 'N' Style Delieverd next day. and was the cheapest i found from all the Places i rang. the standard clutch was not worth a shite in a drift car and whilst the engine was out it was best to do it then...

    I also made this vid during that time

    After a Week, the car was ready to be put back together and was then ready to be run in. and all the fueling checked including running the car in octaine boost... i got it home a few days ago and took it for its first spin. and i cudnt stop smiling. i havent tried to drift it yet but even just cruisng for a spin up the road was awesome, i just coudnt stop smiling. it may only be running Standard Bhp but fuck it i love it
