    Well boys some lil updates havent driven the old girl for over a month because the hole in the muff. Had been to busy to fit it until a few mates told me about a car show on the weekend just gone.

    So me and the old man pulled out the exhaust and cut the old muff off and welded the new hooker aerochamber on. Bit of work in making it all fit in there. The aerochamber was 100mm longer (roughly) than the old muff. But used some templates of the old exhaust to get the angles right. Took a good part out of my sat. But worth it. And made it to the car show had heaps of attention was the first car show i have actually entered my car in. Very happy didnt get any pics of my car unfortunately but ohwell. :good:

    No problem.

    For some one reason the Forum is behind on Tapatalk. So I search everything via safari (iPhone) and then if I want to post a photo I just on Tapatalk and search the thread and post.

    Hey fellas just wondering if anyone here has a product that cleans painted ali??? I seem to get a white build up on some of the cast on the charger.
    Tried heaps of stuff from polishes (probably didnt help motor heating up and maybe drying some residue white to hot soapy water to detailers to degreasers and cleaners???
    Ah i might try a colour restorer? And got the car back from my painter a week ago got the front lip redone and a few touchups.
