New brakes to go on next, then alfa handles, carbon rear lights, 12" flip down monitor inside and a few other things. having second thoughts about a retrim and changing the install, but who knows...........

cheers

Ive gota say tht looks really nice - top job (y) what did the garage miss out bud?

Oh and i love your plates really suit the car?

With your other plans, what can i say - its a master piece in work :D

Wot engine mods you got? :cool:

Oh maybe change the mesh on the rear bumper to match the mesh on the front bumper - looks a little odd with black at the front and silver at the rear - or maybe im just to picky lol!

hey 1.8
they didn't fit the abarth skirts that I asked them to do, or smooth off the reflectors on the back bumper, as they said it kept cracking :(
Didn't mesh the front bumper to suit the grille or back bumper, and didn't paint the underside of the bonnet.

Apart from that it's not a bad job :)

Bought a lester splitter to put on the front bumper (which didn't arrive in time) but i'm not getting it fitted now. Will go elsewhere for the skirts in a few weeks time.

Other plans. Bought a new steering wheel, but waiting for the boss to arrive. Bought new handbrake cover, gaitor, gearknow and gaitor and waiting for them. Poss put an 8" touchscreen in the dash on the pass side where the recess is.
50/50 about getting a retrim now, and about putting all new amps/subs and speakers in it.
maybe another tv or two. (with the flipdown installed it's already got 4! + the touchscreen if I do it!)

All i'm gonna say about the engine is that it has been worked on :) lol

yeah got a deal in the end. wanted it all sorting, but they said they couldn't do it all in the end. got a 50% reduction for all the hassle and me having to put off numerous people doing work on the car whilst it was delayed in the bodyshop

turned out alright in the end

Looks like the bodyshop did a pretty gd job (on the stuff they actually bothered to do).

I definately approve of the plates, they suit the car perfectly.

Keep it up mate, its truly an awesome motor and its only getting better (y)

The new back box with the quad exits (all powerflow s/s custom made) was £280 and all has lifetime guarantee. It's got a full magnex system on it as well and it sounds bloddy awesome:D

Gorgeous that! have much trouble with those plates? i want some for my cinq :eek:
Not had a single pull yet, although that will soon change :( Had a pair of cop cars, subaru and bmw in convoy, folow me out of grimsby the other night and they didn't stop me. Just looked over to see what I was watching on the tv at the time! They're not really bothered round here, more interested in catching speeders..

Don't think they will suit a yellow car matey, but that's just my point of view.

Thanks dude. Getting the abarth skirts painted and put on next week and the front bumper meshed to suit the grille and rear valance. With the skirts on, it should even it all up as they are lower and more chunky:D
