Got myself the sportline add ons and spoiler, I cut the bottom vents out in the front bumper and modded the widemouth a bit as well. And tinted the headlights. Also got a friend to graffiti the bonnet for me and I then lacquered it to make it last.

And then theres the custom rear coilovers and a few more front suspension mods for better lows.. New custom front suspension is in the design stages at the mo.

I then decided that the wheels needed a refurb and colour (frigging hate having black wheels)

And all the front suspension renewing and bushes cos the front end was super loose.. I wonder why..

Long and low budget T5 build - Page 3 Pbucket

And also I gave up with all the custom built coilies due to how much angle they had to sit at the only way to run it successfully at that height why be to raise the top mounts up into the rear floor.. So opted out and went for normal coilies and highered the rear end up.
