Round up of my winter mods 2011

Hi all

You may or may not know (or have worked out) that the car has been off of the road the last few months for a spruce up. I have only owned this car for about a year and I have taken this opatunaty to style a bit more to my liking and do the things that were a bit frustrating. It will go no faster (except with me being slightly more experienced) but will certainly look better. Whats your thoughts, impressions.

Before:

Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

I'd say the styling is 'busy'. Looks pretty mean though

Looks real good and purposeful. Summer is here, go for it!

Just a quicky, how do you get your pics to do that enlarge/hover thing?

I got the small pic hover thing by fluke!

When I went to get my pic info I cut and paste it and it had [.p.g.] (no dots) at the front and [./.p.g.] (no dots) at the rear. These replace the [i.m.g.] (no dots) that normally goes either side of your pic file.

It suddenly done the new thing!

Strange but true!

I like the vinyl sides. I think black would suit mine as well.

Did you do it yourself? What did you get and was it easy?
