Hi there - A Reintroduction

Post by MR2Jay » 08/01/18 14:56

Afternoon Guys.....

To be fair, most of you know me as I've been about for 10 years now believe it or not. However, I've spotted quite a few names I don't recognise having been in the woodwork since JAE last year.

I've been hiding away doing some soul searching regarding the old girl. Have I reached the end of the road? Do I still enjoy this as much? What more can I do? I suppose hitting 40 last year probably didn't help with that :no:

Anyway, the time away has actually done me the world of good. I'm back scheming weird and wonderful mods, picturing all sorts of ways to make her stand out and doing all this without trying. I HAVE THE LOVE BACK!!!! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

So keep an eye on my Project Page, I'll be keeping a journal there of all the mods I am doing this year. Plan is to have her almost finished by June this year having had a major cosmetic overhaul :th:

I'll be sticking about again now, so I'll help out where I can.

Jay

Welcome back! It's always nice to see the friendly faces still around.

Your reminding me that I need to commit some time to both of my threads. They've been far too neglected of late. Hopefully going to show the car some love shortly though.

Yes, more into preventative maintenance mode at the minute. I've managed to source replacement doors which aren't rotting and will be sprayed and fitted shortly. Thinking of also going more subtle and back to stock bodywork with colour coded mudflaps and keep the rev5 spoiler but we will see. I just want to be able to get in and enjoy it this year...

Haha thank you dude, its awesome but also a complete money pit! :laughing (More my grand plans than actually necessary work) I've been bitten by the resto mod bug and am trying my best to not get carried away with my plans :blush:
