So after 6 years 3 months of ownership and making the statement of sorting them out from day one....I've finally done it :D

Just need to put it all back together now, and then its splitter fitting time (once it arrives).

Sooooo happy!

I took the bumper off when I delivered it. All they did was offer it back up to paint stripes. I fitted it before heading home.

Great to see all the improvements over the years , don't take this the wrong way but I really like that last picture with no grille , looks a bit Saleen esk

Hopefully next thing on the list isn't a 'for sale' sign ( like Malc :roll: )

Cheers Baz. I'd love a Bullitt grille, but they are ridiculous money. So I'll stick with the GT one, for now :)

I won't be selling anytime soon... I hope!

Numberplate back on... for now. Additional screws fitted to splitter...

Also a little bit of Photoshop this morning (Thanks to Dave454 for his pic for me to steal the wheels).

Not perfect but gives a good impression :)

As she is...

New Wheels...

I was hoping it would make me want them more but it's made little difference, and yes I still want them! :)
