My black R5 Gt turbo - Resprayed black
« on: 20:57, Mon 04 May 2009 »
Just collected my R5 today from being resprayed in black 2 pack paint, its a really good job its made it like a brand new car! cant wait to give it another polish up, needs a good clean now.





needs a good clean now! (and i think the rear needs to be a bit lower!)

cheers
james
