roll I've been bitten hard people, real hard

Well since picking up the EB2 XR on Sunday I've been like a mad man, I have the doors all apart with bits of door handles all over the place, they go to the paint shop tomorrow then fitting on Saturday morning. The red stripe which I dont like is now black and IMO looks 100 times better, I am not happy with the height of the front of the car and have got a quote to drop it by 1.5inches $265.00 by WA Suspension in Ozzie Park. The current tint I dont think is dark enough and have got a quote to have it replaced with "Limo tint" nice n dark of $285.00. Looking throught the street machine last night and going to replace the standard leads with some overkilling 10mm jobs, blue or red ones. The Black BBQ lid came off the engine the other night and am thinking of getting it painted Red, some nice pollished Alloy Ford Motorsport Rocker Covers, new muffler, speaker replacement all round with a sub in the back and replace the Kenwood CD player with a nice Sony XPLOD unit or similar.

Yep the bug has sunk his fangs in really deep this time, will keep you posted:crazy1:

Just be glad you're in WA. One drive past Herrods and you'd know what being bitten really means!

BOF, sounds like your giving the new car teh same mod treatments as your EA.
Sounds good mate, i have to agree with you about the red strips i'm not a fan of them.

Can't wait to see your baby after the treatment mods.

BOF - with the leads, you can get cool alloy brackets for them... they bolt on to the rocker covers, and makes the leads a lot neater.

Cant remember exactly how much I paid for mine - but it was around $160 including the 10mm leads. (trade price)
