Not much happening lately, put some new wheels on the car a few days ago. Hopefully will be getting registered on Wednesday then I can lower it.

Nice mate. Are the turbo's upgraded? Be careful if they're still ceramic exhaust wheels, cost me a full rebuild....

Pretty much finished, the car.

Just a few small jobs to do and give the car a massive detail and we are on track for Summernats.
