ok so
FPV GT steering wheel has arrived at the post office, but shes an hour away from me.

new shifter plate will arrive in the morning from FTG, also have the Blue LED to go under it.

my speedo needle totally shat itself so i have sourced a new one and au matt is going to work his magic on it when i can finally decide exactly how i want it to look!

White line sway bars in 3 weeks

going to do some serious overtime at work i rekon to get my 19" rims, $1500 as new with brand new tyres and nuts. i hit a pothole last night coming back from work and buckled my front left rim. 2 stockies will go on the back as the rears are bald, i will then use 1 of the rear rims to replace the buckled one for a while.

up early this morning with a knock on the door, shifter plate has arrived.

this was not as easy as it looks, i did it as per the tech document and it wouldnt budge. i gave it a few good pulls and wiggles and it finally came free. what i did im not sure.

new plate in hand i crawled under from the back seats to swap it out and put my blue globe in

GT wheel is held up. the seller lied about when they posted it, which is annoying but atleast i have a reason as to why it isnt here.

Nice progress on the BA mate, it's one very clean looking ride :wink:

Jeez, thats shocking to see what happens with those shifter surround plates. Must be quite a common problem, have seen a few that have bubbled, but nothing that bad :shock:. The steering wheel looks awesome, so much more beefier than the standard ones :)
