As its already a bit lighter without the doorcards you might aswell keep making it lighter. Looks like it was a steal at that price rob. :p

Picked up car today and brought it to my mechanic to do some work .

Brakes need checking new pads
2 x ball joints
1 x drop link
1 x bushing
Full service
Few other small things need doing

I am nearly 100% I am going to trip the car for the track.

Also we are planing to do some funky custom number plate using a CNC :Dmachine
