Re: My blue taxi

Nice car! Love the EL front especially!

Glad you got those photos sorted out. Color looks good as well! And I LOVE the black wheels on a lowered clean car - I am very impressed.

Have fun with it!

Cheers... Tim

Re: My blue taxi

Don't know if i like the blueprint on the el...
Might look ok with spoiler and some new wheels :) .. black snowflakes don't suit it in my opinion (which differs to fordel's) each to their own..
is that 665,000 K's ?

Re: My blue taxi

yes she has done 665 000kays,, only a baby really,, just run in

I want some different wheels but then its hard to justify getting newies and covering them in black paint...Its the ghetto way of avoiding brake dust from showing up :)

I have some XR bonnet vents and a boot spoiler (one of those ones aftermarket ones with a bar of LED's for stop lights in it) at work waiting to be painted but i'm not 100% that the spoiler would make the car look better.. I really like the clean mouldless look and i think the spoiler might 'rice' it up alittle too much for how hard she goes atm...

I keep wanting to get more power from the 4'0l but i have another project car that i should really finish before I trick the power up

Work in progess:-straight LPG 351 clevo and C4 combo stuffed into my old EB

click for bigger piccies in my gallery

The paint Chad was $380 trade for 4 ltrs of code UU 2 pac... I did the body prep myself, an arduous task bringing a taxi back to straight. It had been hit up the ass when i took possession of it.. There was a quote of $3500 for repairs that we hadn't done yet so I talked to my boss and we did a deal.. He keeps the insurance money and I fix the car at my own pace. A cut and shut on the LHR quarter panel, a few panels and some brand spankers new front and rear bars.. I sprayed the putty and undercoat and got a pro to apply the 2pac blue and clear (just in case i muffed it)
I will NEVER again change the color of a car,, dismantling the interior etc was the biggest pain in the ass

Re: My blue taxi

Top stuff tibbo! Good to see you've got the clevo itch again You people probably can't appreciate how low bluey is! She puts me to shame when I park next to her! The 225's really fill in the guards very well too. It's a very clean look and unique on the bitchumen. Deserving of respect.

...want to write more but g/f is tearing my room apart chucking everything in the bin. I'm trying to get my forum fix here but moving house is such a show stopper....

Re: My blue taxi
