    A 4″ grinder and thin cut off wheels.

    We started out small and slowly opened it up untill we were happy with the clearances around the manifold.

    Big thanks to Scott for his grinder skills :good:

    Here’s a few teaser pics from the paint shop.

    Big thanks to James my painter who came up with this custom colour,

    in his words the colour looks absolutly insane !!!

     

    Can’t wait to get it home and start peicing it together :yahoo: .

    Now that’s a colour!!!

    Thanks, was looking for something different.

    its a custom colour my painter threw together, 70% violet pearl , so really pops in the sunlight.

    Should look good with silver bumpers , calais/royal door moulds and the HDT wheels.

    Had the underside of the car chip coated, helped a mate do it on his hoist, took a couple of hrs to mask everthing off and cover the paintwork, but well worth the effort, looks so tidy under there now.

    Installed the coilovers and bolted the wheels on.

    Looks like I’ll have to have the coilovers lengthend a little, they are set at max height and there aint no motor or box in there yet ….

    Only bought rear tyres at this stage 245/35/20s they are a bit wide and tall , grab the front of the gaurds when turning in, so looks like I’ll need to go with 225/30 20s up front.

    Maybe adding more caster with adjustable “Z” bars would help ?

    I have some adjustable spring platforms to install in the rear, so will be dropping that some more.

    Looking awesome mate, looks like you’ve got the 225/30’s on the front now? Each to their own but i prefer that anyway.

    looks good , if you have new baily channels it’s easy just use the spray lube
