Winter mods done

Postby Hacker » Sun Mar 25, 2018 10:37 am

My '07 has been off the road for a few months for some fettling and improvements and I got her back this week - I'm very happy with the outcome and yet again Custom Exotics in Harlow have excelled themselves.

Quick overview:
New front bumper, grills and lights
New wheels - Forgestar F14 22"
Third brake light replaced with LED Pony emblem
Long tube headers, high flow cats and exhaust cut outs
Smaller sc pulley and tune
Engine bay fully painted/detailed
Seats and doorcards recovered in leather with diamond stitching
Line lock :D
Second compressor for air ride

Its a beast Colin. :rock

Couple of questions: Was the new bumper needed cos of the new fancy headlights? It was a GT500 clone front end before right? And why the second compressor.

Oh and that Pony brake light is the dog's. More pics of that needed!

Needs more wing. ;)

That's pretty slick. Love the front view. With all those beady black lights, it looks like some sort of evil spider monster crouched down about to pounce.

Any interior pics?

Thanks, the previous bumper was from Tru Fiber but it had been modified to look more like the GT500 however this meant there were no grilles to fit, the general appearance was really getting on my tit which is why I went with the Cervini bumper. The new headlights would have fitted the old bumper.

I added a second compressor to reduce the fill time but more importantly for redundancy.

More wing you say? Hold my beer.... :D

The gloss black finish looks really good and the diamond stitch leather too. Surprised you didn't go for yellow contrast stitch on the seats/wheel maybe?

But the whole thing is really well done. What's the ride like on those 22s?

Thanks, I did think about the yellow stitching but decided it would be a bit too much.

The ride is surprisingly good, very similar to having 20s on and having the ability to fine tune the air ride helps as well. I had 22s on before but with different no name tyres which were pretty shit to be honest, I’ve now gone slightly larger with Falken Azenis on each corner and they feel so much better.
