-jatco 3 speed auto with 3000 tce stall
-Vl calais rim with rears widened with semi slicks, fronts cut down

I didn't relaise I I had posted that photo hadn't finished writing the new up date with the car. I have taking the car back to full og spec including every badge, chrome stripping and respraying my interior. So much happier with black skirts. I also had the pleasure of driving it to my wedding. All that is left to do with car is my engine bay, boot and black the bottom of the bumpers. Some of the earlier photos I hadn't installed the badges yet. Enjoy.
