Thanks man, i like it as the are im in, no one else does this type of thing. It's all VS commies with alloys on the front and stockies on the rear. And like i say, the pictures don't do the alloys justice, they are real nice in real. Basically all im doing is cosmetic stuff at the moment until i get off my p's and get some experiance behind me then im going to supercharge it. Not to mention, i don't want it looking like every other bland XR out there. Either with boring 17's or 18's, or no spoiler. It's just to bland that way. Hence why im making this exactly how i like it.
After it gets painted im getting a couple of gauges put on it (fake typhoon looking thing). I have the gauges currently, just need the dual gauge holder and a lekky to put 'em in.

Cheers

gauges are fun ive got a set in mine, if you want DRL's have you considered setting angle eyes up as DRL's instead of the two bars?

Yeah i want to eventually get angel eyes put on it, but i actually want the proper made ones. Not just the cheap, yellow ebay shiz ones. So after i get it painted, i might look into buying a real good set and shove them in it. It will be like a night show on wheels when im done haha.

Well i ordered a new gear knob so i could get rid of the boring factory one. It is a carbon look one. I think it looks really good.

And as you can see from the photo, the gear surround has had it. So i got a new one of those and should be replacing it on Monday. Bloody annoying job though :/

So, haven't done a whole lot, but

Replaced the ford badges with something a little more tasteful

Image

Changed the gear surround, as it was peeling

Image

Painted some of the intake piping shockwave blue to match the car
Image

And finally added some gauges
