Nice mate, like the look of the recaro buckets, not too OTT, how much difference did it make stripping the car out? did it feel better to drive?

o its different! noisy as hell for a start, you hear EVERYTHING.  cars lighter now. back wheels used to fill arch nicely, now though, theres a big gap between arch and top of tyre. coilovers next i think!

looking very nice mate.

i might start to do that soon,

seeing as i now don't really drive it, i haven't got to worry about luxury,

don't know if i'd go roll cage though?

keep us posted
