Not a fan of Skodas and not a fan of Mercs but that is ACE! Changed my opinion on them both a bit. :-D

Alwalys clean them, i used to valet for so long. She will be rough as a bears arse by the end of it. Gotta say to Satan eat Cheese that I wasnt the first to do the grill thing, someone else had it on the forum, but i always try things like this. Someday i plan to make a frankenstein renault4. Want a spare bonnet too, gonna TORCH IT!!

Ok, so, I dropped her yesterday on some of those cheap ebay coilies, got a decent drop with out leaving it unbearable.
Image
Also decided to paint the drums 'n' calipers while I was down there,
I also had to change the exhaust (boo!) but I have an even worse idea in the works...
Image
Did this a while back...
Image
then threw on some yellow fogs and more stickers.
Image
Today I'll try find a roof rack!

Well, I aint done much with her in a while, apart from setting the tappets. Did well over 2000 miles this past fortnight and never missed a beat. Lots of gigs (and plenty of sneering) and a wee family holiday in the west. Had it parked in the 4 star hotel we stayed at among a row of 12 mercs and Audis, much to the distain of the stuffy clientel.
Next job on is to make an aluminium H-gate and price up some tyres for the new wheels.

Well, she's been lowered, but i just cant get the front any lower with the height adjuster in it. gonna take it out soon enough. its got a bit of an anti rake on it. Currently, its spray painted all over to advertise a big local gig we got goin on the 25th. She's a damn mess. Thinkin of goin all out on it, all the work on it now is easily reversible, so maybe going for a pure rat job. what you guys think?
