Looking good, Andrew!
Clean, sleek and stealthy -- and originally you wanted to take it slow on the mods!

The pleasure is all mine, especially sliding into those turns.  Now we have to do something with your headlights.

I'm working on some stuff to clean up the engine bay. I've never been happy with the way it looks really.

After the spring detail day I've talked my GF into doing some.... ehhh, "Glamour Shots" to display the new details.

It's too friggin filthy in there for pics and too cold outside to give it a bath right now. :)
