I haven't done any updates for a while as i work nights so i sleep all day no time to work on my car.
Here are a few pics of where it is up to atm, had alot of trouble with no boost out of the GT35/40, actuator was mounted on an angle and letting all boost out, hopefully its right now. Painting around the door windows black tomorrow so soon i will have it all back together.

Looks awesome mate.
That bonnet is sick, you made it all yourself? Just needs a v8 to sit under it.

Change back to the blue silicon connectors i reckon, or go an all black setup.

also, rims suit the car perfectly, i didnt like the first ones

Keep the updates coming
