« on: 20:29, Wed 01 December 2010 »
heres how i got the car for changing a headgasket on another 5  :shock:  :shock:






shocking what people think is nice  :?
so ive got hold ov a donor car which was rotted but the parts and interior were good and clean.
the dimma is a sound shell so out of the to i should have a tidy car hopfully  :D
so here it is at the moment











managed to source a front bumper good find i think  :D

it should be back from paint before xmas  :D  nice prezzy for my self  :mrgreen:
and heres my pillar pods im making








so as soon as it comes back from paint ill be able to get dirty and get it back on the road  :mrgreen: and get some more pics up  :D  wa u think black with white or black wheels thats the bit im stuck on  :lol:

What a deal!!

I do love a nice Dimma  :D
What colour is the car going to be? Then choose the wheel colour from there (sorry if I just wasn't reading properly). Look out for a big brake kit to fill those wheels too  8)

This is gonna look wicked in black! Especially if you make it nice and low as well 8)  Not sure what planet the previous owner was on when they decided on that 'interesting' turquoise green colour!
I think you could go up to 285mm discs with your extender kit -not sure..
