Cheers dude...


It's a bit dark out now but the front just sort of dropped to the floor around 1.5-2" lower and the steering box and front bumper drag on the road when going on and off the drive and the tyre's hit the arches

I reckon the wheels look hot, BUT, I would personally have gone a tad higher on the tyre profile but thats just me.
Either way it looks the old Poodles Privates matey!!!

Hi dude nice to see you in Bristol on Saturday, sorry you got lost on the cruise.

The panel is gonna look wicked when you've finished it. Always better to see it in the flesh than in pictures.

If you do decide to get anything from Graham at FBI and want to save on postage then give me a shout, as I do a lot of work in Swansea for the DVLA.

Later

Alan
