hi guys,

i have been around for a while but not really got involved with posting anything up and rekon its about time i started a build thread.

i got the car febuary 2010 completely stock and in a bit of a mess!

i hadnt intended to do anything to it but after fixing a few things and reading up on the forum the bug bit and well that was it

car had loads of dents, there were about 3 different shades of red throughout the car and in general it needed a fair bit of tlc

anyway after a bit of a clean and polish plus some tints it looked like this:

then came the time for coilovers

i decided on JOM after reading loads of comments and people views on them and after a good 6 months of using them (from when i installed to now)

i have to say that they were fantastic value for money and really good quality!

i only have one picture which was towards the beginning of install...i kind of got a bit carried away and just got on with it:
