meethed's XD

figured after spending 2 weeks getting this thing on the road I might as well post some pics. Don't worry it isn't gonna look like it does for long - I just need to save up some cash first!

4.1 iron head, rebuilt C4, lowered 1.5" all round and factory alloys. It has some old extractors into a brand new 2 1/4" system. It had a terrible 2.5" but I had to ditch it as it set a record of nearly 101dB, plus had leaks everywhere!

- yeah shoulda mentioned that! Costs me $20 for nearly a full tank, and it goes alright too.

I'm gonna do the usual thing - lower, louder, faster. For now I'll keep the 6, but get it rebuilt so it goes even better. I'm thinking some alloys - like the AU1s from MR0250, and either blueprint or a dark turquoise that I've seen a few times. Guess I should send it over to the photoshop forum!

But before I do anything there's a few things I'm not happy with, like the chips in the windscreen and the lack of odometer/tripmeter. Not to mention I haven't insured it yet
