Looking superb, you can hardly tell the difference between that colour and the original one. Are you still going to do the red bit on the front or have you decided against that now?

The painter refused to do the red bit - painted her wheels this weekend. Trying to post the pictures at the minute.

Hope you're proud!

Haha, remind me to buy the painter a beer some time.

Yeah I'm very proud and I wouldn't have thought of white wheels - good choice. Its still too high though :wink:

Are you going to Billing?

Billing is the same weekend as the Le Mans Classic and since there is no way I'm missing out on Le Mans I fear I will have to wait until the next Vauxhall gathering to see all of your shiny machines.

She's sitting at the height needed to get around this town without ruining something on the speed bumps that are breeding around here :( :( :(

I'll update her with some pictures tomorrow - we've about 4 hours of work left to do.

Oh, well thats a bit rubbish. Fancy putting those two on the same weekend, you'd think the Le Mans organising committee would see the obvious clash.

Yes I've heard about all the new speedbumps down bath street, sounds wonderful - now I won't be able to go and see my Grandad in Shelly :(

Hitting with a stick?

I'm not even sure what that means?

I would agree with the above. It's so clean, it doesn't need too much lowering but it is very very high at the moment.

Look fantastic and original otherwise.
