    I had the PDC Navan for a month (after swapping that for my old satin black s14).. but pretty much decided I couldnt put my own mark on it as it was pretty much there so i have swapped...again!

    Le new car... a 180sx..previously owned my shelbz on here.

    So far, i think ive had it just over a week.. and im already on my third bumper ( not sure im a fan of fibreglass quite yet) ... although the one i have just fitted i have put on straps ( metal things with a spring) so i can pop it on and off quickly.

    Bumper 1 died in a mildly drift related accident...well..it fell of and got smashed as i pulled out of the pure carma carpark at essex arena.

    bumper 2 was in pieces when i got it.. and pieces started falling off as i got above 80... no amount of cable ties could fix that

    bumper 3... came with the car... i cant afford to spray it, so covered it in offcuts of black vinyl.. looks a bit shit up close, but will do till i can afford to spray it :) or wrapped it in conformable cast vinyl

    bumper related pic =

    plan wise, just a general tidy up of the shell... the chassis is good but the shell needs some love...

    also, i plan on doing a wheel swap... 18's are not my cup of tea although they have grown on me massivly.

    also - after fitting the bumper i was in a rush and had to cable tie the indcators on.. they aren ow sitting ont he piss.. gta fit them proper later :wack:

    anyway, enough boring chatter

    wheels are sitting well though i think.. nice and flush

    as above

    EXHAUST
    FRONT BUMPER
    WHEELS

    are all open to swaps

    bumper doesnt suit rest of car ( only vinyl'd black.. not paint.. can be peeled off)

    exhaust is a custom boso style straight thru intoa shotgun type tihngy.. too loud for me lol

    and wheels... will take 17" somethings as long as they are 4 stud and either concave or dished :) i have a thread about them :)
