Famous last words :lol:


Haha, yes yes, the wife says the same thing. I bought the car new in 91 and it was delivered to the bodyshop even b4 I got it from the dealer for the MMM kit and since then, always doing something to it. I did say this was as far as I'd take it - I have a few other cars in the works also, but the perfect factory interior is looking outta place, hmmmmmmmm.......
I'll setup a new folder in my photobucket account on the weekend with plenty of pics for those who have asked.

Ratman, is that the same car that has been in about 3 magazines in the last few years, i've got the mags here somewhere, but i remember it had different wheels. He has a big Focal stereo system in the spare wheel well, as well if it is the same car.

Nice work!!! Loved it in the mag!

Yeh it has been featured a few times but not in its current (final) look. It originally had silver FR18s, then he went the chrome ame's in 19s, mesh style 20s and now back to the FR19s - which is how its gonna stay. The previous magazine features had a different engine bay setup so it will be featured again soon to show the differences. The focal system is still there and has won many awards.

The blower setup is an STA unit that has been tweaked internally.

I could get hold of a Pratt and Whitney PT6-62 engine but you'll need a hole in the firewall to fit it.
It only spins at 37,000 rpm.
