    After taking a trip to the top end of Birmingham this is what I come back with.

    Got the car looking low then I was set for a search out for some rare/different rims. Ended up getting a set of ATS Cups, 15x7.5 and 9j... Oh yeah like my numberplate? 250 bucks from DVLA, bargain!

    Had a go at skinning some fenders in carbon fibre (what horrible stuff to use!). All went well but couldn't get the product from the mould so i lost my temper and threw it over my garden wall (so bad pmsl), and that was where that ended. I think it would have worked a little better with more practice haha!!
