yes, that enters my mind often... i think ill have to look at an ED as i still love the shape and there are less mechanical faults + more features.

haha small world..

thanks mate.

my dad is close friends with a bloke that sprays his cars and fixes up dents/rust blah blah...

so naturally got it at a good price. His name is Terry (unsure of last name) and he is deaf. It's quite hard to explain what you want/ but he can read and knows what your talkin about from using your hands and lip movement.

He does an awesome job for the money he's asking me - and i have nothing but praise for him..as i have seen the finished works of my dad's cars.

debadged the side - took the poxy looking 3.9L off. much better...
think ill remove the sticker aswell..abit over it.

thanks mate

i know, you were saying u dont like the 2 tone of red and silver, im saying changing the sillver would look ugly, its teh red tha needs changing, im not sure of what the name of the coloures are, but it would need to be darker then the silver, but lighter then the guards aroudn the sides
