    Only took over a month to clean then car and even then I only did a quick wash no products and only did one wheel so didn't really do a good job however..

    It was dark before I could get a picture so the morning after.

    But as it is the festive season and my rents have new Christmas lights they look nice..

    Anybody else got a shopping list for next year??

    Im going to be looking at new tyres (standard)
    new seats
    The light weight crank pulley from raptor
    and possibly looking into the 64mm ported throttle body..

    and some PMS bits that have been rumoured

    I've got a sprint booster atm so will do some videos with it on and off then get this on and get some videos..

    Then if you believe everything you here will have to take the booster off and sell it..

    Good day had by all yesterday firstly me and my pal Benny went over to @trackspec197 to see how he was getting on and to collect some bits then back home to fit my pully received_358845581585452.jpeg

    Which took all of 20 mins to do..

    20181228_130648.jpg

    Found some more of Donington hiding.

    20181228_123028.jpg

    Then went over to cafieene and machine which as ever was busy..

    But had a brilliant day doing it..

    And as I have said before with modifications like the pully it might be in my head but the car feels like it pulls a lot more now it's go a punch when you hit it but more driving is needed first..

    However today I have decided to clean it as it's filthy.
