My new 250 GT

I did a swap on a project I hadn't time to finish.
I got this car totally standard with around 48thou km on the clocks, that's around 30thou miles.
Has no issues other than it's standard & the lights need a Polish.







I then got offered a cheap set of wheels after a mate wrote off his Lexus.
They are 18x9.0 et25 & 18x10 et25.
Because I had wheels it needed coilovers so I bought some ebay cheapies that are damper adjustable.
Rolled the rear arches & spent the day making it look like this.



That's how she sits today. The ride is very good & not crashy as I thought it might.

Next on my list is an induction kit & a mate is going to make me a shotgun backbox.
Hope you guys like it.

I'm looking for this bumper too.
I'm also after some clear indicators.

Thanks man. I think it looks cool too.
Went to castle combe on saturday & was on the sxoc stand.
I bought a steering wheel boss from merlin motorsport while I was there.
Going to test fit it tomorrow then I'll buy a wheel from ebay.

Changed the wheels for the newly released xxr 527d.
I went for 18x9 et20 all round with 225 up front & 245 rears. Car sits really well & I love the 3"lips.





I also bought a nardi dished wheel but put a blank horn button in the centre for a cleaner look.



I'm hoping to pick up my custom shotgun exhaust tomorrow.
