small update, Ross from the vx forum is trimming my spare steering wheel. Gone for half leather / alcantara with green stitch.



Also....



Batmans (vx forum) on with piecing me together a stage 2 charger kit, will be dropping with him some time soon, cant wait! Also having some braided lines fitted for piece of mind after the oulton episode. Think i'd be more than up to doing it myself but a business venture is taking my time this year so more than happy to leave in his capable hands.










Be roughly 250-260bhp once done.

That looks like it might need a flameproof license

Replaced snapped soft top cable (it'd seen better days)









Retrimmed wheel installed






Other halfs reaction to Supercharger...






Other wheels on






Freshened up the engine bay











Side grills were also looking a little battered so refurbished them too











Cleaned all slider pins on brakes and ceratec'd all the pads too as there was an annoying squeal






Picked up a set of Gaz coilovers (too cheap to say no to) Will use for a bit see what they're like but do like the original set up so will probably refurbish them
