    How it started..

    Except it had spotlights and chrome headlight rings, rear light surrounds and scuttle inserts. Obviously they lasted less than a week.

    After that, off it went to spend a couple of weeks at Millsy's for a Health Check, decoke and a nice eBay hobo intercooler fitted. I worked out it was the same one that a reputable tuner sells for £600, except it was £130. It works.

    Went on a bit of a spending spree recently..

    Then hit Millsy's again to get all that shizzle fitted..

    Hit a snag as we were fitting the front wheels - the tyres were touching the springs. We had spacers available but no longer lugs so the stock wheels had to go back on the front for the time being. :(

    Then I got home to find smoke bellowing out of my front passenger side wheel - the brake was binding. Potentially a warped disc :rolleyes:

    Plans? Gonna get it sticking to the tarmac and we'll see from there. The N14 life means forging before we give it more power - I've started saving.

    Thats such a great spot, cars looking on point. We have very similar plans, although you have a decent head start. :)
