    Looks good. You need 18" monos me thinks, staggered set up. Cant tell if yours are staggered in the pics.

    Thanks. I think I agree 18's would look better, but funds are a bit low after the bodywork ha. These are staggered!

    I had the wheels refurbed, front wings, rear arches, the bonnet taken back to metal and a nice straight, rotten free second hand boot lid. I am really happy with the end result. Thanks for the positive replies.

    Looks good! I just put my 55 in for a full respray today so can't wait for it to be finished, also having the four wheels refurbished. So necessary for these cars. The plate suits the car well. My e240 must have been registered close to yours as my plate also starts with R430.

    she's a hot midsized musclecar!
    where's your interior pics. bud?

    did your car have alot of rot?
    have you checked the firewall ends in the engine room?
    there is an ugly and bad rubberish seal that is moist all the time if you wash your engine.
    these both ends are hidden rustraps!
    remove the rubber from this place.

    do you have rust under the rubber sealing on upper part of the doors?

    I definately dont think neon's will be getting fitted haha, thanks for the idea though!
    There was rust on the arches and boot, but there is none on the doors or in the engine bay thankfully.

    Mine was - personal plate now - R431 GHW, so they would have been registered side by side. Wonder whether the VINs are sequential..
