Back on the road

After two mths of the car being sorned and a track day next week, it's time to get the cover off and get her back on the road.
The break was a good opportunity to give the old girl a wash and brush up,which with the hose pipe ban now in force worked out well.

So off came the exhaust tips & diffuser:






Grills out:


Smoked side indicators out:


Cleaned up the tips with some metal polish and thought I'd decide which set to reinstate later,polished up the diffuser:








Ready to go back on:


Went with the s/steel ones in the end,the Cyba tips will go on at another time:


Plate back on:

Smokeys back on:


Kidneys transplanted:


Voila!





ET30,Bilstein PSS 9/10's and 275/30 tyres doesn't work!Looks good though







Forgot a centre cap,Doh!

Very nice mr hot coupe. Looks like you done a fair bit of work there. I am also running 275's at the back exceot the offset is much different. Im not sure which I prefer the 265 or 275. Definately not feeling the 255 though.

Also are these snaps taken in West Sussex?
