Here she is sat at the new ride height had to change the tyres so went for some low pros and skinnier up front with a bit of stretch..

The front still needs to come down about 20-30mm hopefully that'll be Wednesday night when I having got the kids..

These pics are of her straight off the jack so it has settled abut now :-)





And then today whilst shopping a standard T5 parked behind me :-)





Can't wait to bring the front down some more..

I had the seats retrimmed by a mate who I always use and got me some veltrim to give a go see what its like. Everything got insulated.
Also built a unit to go behind the seats with flush gloss doors and no handles.

While I was doing the interior I ran all the electrics and sound system wiring. Leisure battery, split charge and 1500w invertor. Mains hook up under the bonnet with consumer unit under the passenger seat and invertor to mains change over switch through the seat base.
