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

that looks aight :) are you gonna end up getting different mags for it? I like the ones you have got, but yeah just asking cause it would look sik cause of the blue print, how much did the paint set you back?

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 ?

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

Top stuff tibbo! Good to see you've got the clevo itch again :p 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....

i had intended to fill the side repeaters altogether but i dam well forgot... Its been picking up a little wear and tear so as soon as the drivers side fender gets a mark on it I shall pull it off and weld a piece in behind the side indicator cut-out... As you can see in this piccie the passenger fender has already been crunched by the wheel.. I have sinces rolled the lip all the way over but i gives me an excuse to blank the indicators

The whole car has been rebushed with neoprene units, new ball joints, tie rod etc and obvioulsy spring and shocks.. She is as quiet as a church mouse

Power on the other hand is not so flash.. driven not raced down the quarter
17.9 @81mph with a full 65lts of LPG onboard but in perspective it cost me less than $5 in gas for the round trip -->120 odd kays

I was thinking today tibbo as I left for work and saw your front passenger wheel turned inward that you really should try pursuits all round, they really look shmick IMHO

Looks good with the Concorde wheels on - but what's on the Concorde?

BTW, just noticed on the odometer shot that the service light is showing? Would that be for the 660,000km service? I hope you didn't miss it! lol. Is that a minor or a major service? How thick is the service book?
