The STT rises from the rust heap

The STT rises from the rust heap
Just a quickie to say that the STT is going to rise from the ashes (or should that be rust heap) and live again, mainly thanks to a tidy bonus and happening across a tidy white shell, a freshly built LET and convo with Spankee about drive space and labour costs

The new shell has been sitting around for some time and therefore needs a proper mop over once the mechanical stuff is sorted. The new engine comes with a hybrid turbo and I have a set of 308s to go on too.

Mostly thanks to Spankee it should be sorted out for PV.

How she was 2 years ago...

It will be at PV, hoping to making it sooner so she can be run in and any issues sorted and so I don't have to rush the MOT.

Looks like a bit of competition then:)

Meet you on the STRIP then Andy:wub:

Good to see you are going to do another white one.

Thinking of a change myself, just need some money.

SPEED IS JUST A QUESTION OF MONEY, HOW FAST DO YOU WANT TO GO ?

Lookup 'Paint Mop' or 'Mopping' on a detailers forum mate.
