In for a penny in for a pound

Post by Big Blue UK »



or 3,000 give or take a few quid.
So, I started off by putting the finishing touches to the DRL's



Then I finally decided to fit the long awaited port tubes to the topbox/subwoofer



Ended up with a garage full of this.



and this



Reversed the rad fans.

Engine is now out and stripped.
Will have new upgraded gears, new selectors, new alternator drive gear as it is chattering, and a new Borg & Beck clutch.
I wouldn't mind, but I still have not ported the bleedin topbox.

This may have been the first time I've ever seen objectify used in a sentence.
