    Awesome post, Pav! What a transformation she's gone through! I bet that list is as big as the smiles you have every time you take her out for a blast :wink:

    Bugger me Pav! It’s so easy to forget how much you’ve done to this car, it’s incredible really.
    Really wish I’d jumped in with you at Bedford (and others, I must have looked so bloody self centred!), but there’s always next year :smile:

    What a bloody disaster! A total mess! So much better when it left the factory.
    I JEST!!! Awesome car you have created Pav! Looking forward to seeing it in the metal at the Christmas meal. I might even try & blag a passenger ride. Credit to you mate.

    Not much left to do mate...cars in great shape:thumb:
    Don’t need to push for more power as she has plenty. 2 sets of wheels happy days!
    Suspension and brakes all sorted!
    Possibly new seats for your skinny ass:grinning:

    ohh my..this need to be brought back to life..havent updated for a while..as they say no news good news...true this...
    i have been enjoying the car without any issues which is always a bonus after a meg swap..
    gave her a quick wash last weekend but thats just pointless as we all know-hate winter with passion when it comes to cars!!

    there will be no upgrades for a while as i just want to enjoy her..thanks for watching

    Good to hear you're still enjoying the witch in all her boosty glory :smile: I bet Trev is disappointed you haven't been back to see him for a while :wink: which is how it should be, all being well!

    Those wheels are so bloody awesome Pav!
    Good for you giving the Witch a good clean, I think most of us are putting it off until the weather starts to improve, my wheels are an utter state, though not 'hating' having a white car at the moment, honeymoon period hasn't quite ended yet!
    Anything you're saving up for at the moment, or just enjoying her?

    good idea if you have a jet wash..i just wet them a lot and then brushed the crap off...
    so was i but having a week off and not touching her seemed a little harsh :sweatsmile:
    think having a white car isnt that bad at all this time of the year...
    not saving for anything in particular..leaving my options open :smiley:

    thanks Micah

    I'm still so jealous of your wheels Pav, look beautiful!

    Must admit I had a mini heart attack with your first few words "think it's time to..."!!

    Planning any track days when the weather gets a bit more forgiving?
