    /[/img]hey its me again, been working on my car again today, trying get my sump off for some armour to be fixed on, got all bolts out part from 3, 2 in an awkward place near the cross member and 1 sat right behind the drive shaft. but ran out of light so its still on.

    coilovers going on on friday hoping to get as low as around 90mm just so i can get at least 2 passengers in.


    going in me shed tonight to do some more back to the back bumper, should be getting both front and back bumpers sprayed for around the 28th.
    heres a pic of the progress so far. looks hell of a lot different to a standard back bumper.

    they do look a bit dog ruff still but these pics were taken not not long after applying another coat of filler.
