Little updates! Have big ones coming very soon as the car starts coming together! Changed my mind on interior and now going buckets in the rear have purchased a set of V2 Monaro rears that will get customised to suit the Recaro Headrests

And also got another Imac cobra Steering wheel with LE horn pad!

Watch this space for some big updates soon as the first 26/30 LPG starts to take shape

Cheers!

Nope not yet wheels are still sitting wrapped up till I get the car back. I'm aiming for early FEB For the car to have the LE kit + Wheels on and to be finally running to soak up a tiny bit of what's left of the summer. lol

If anyone needs Beige parts hit me up I have tons that need to go
