    Default Blade1000 3.2V6 Signum

    Right, I thought I would Give this a go!
    Bought the Car 2 years ago this month
    Spec: Elite
    It had done 52k FVSH and had one small golf ball dent on front o/s wing...still has!
    I do all my own servicing, and She has had 2 services since.
    What I've done:

    Full Service twice, including Brake Fluid and New Coolant
    Gearbox Oil(It's an Auto)
    New Rear control arm Bushes
    Rear Shocks
    Front Shocks
    Lowered PI Springs
    Calipers Painted Lime Green
    New Front Discs and Pads
    Middle Decat and Full Stainless Handmade System from downpipes including flexi-joints with Rear Oval Box Middle Exit! Cut rear bumper trim to fit! Still looking for a surround for that!
    Bought Brand new Rear Glass with the tint! mine didn't have one, then had all windows tinted progressively! Rear Limo, on top of dark! Side rear dark, side front light!
    Front headlight plastic was fading with sun and going yellow! so used 2000 wet and dry, then compound with machine and then polish! Like new now!
    N/s Respray after some Barsteward dented the 2 doors in car park! So at same time, painted black plastic bottom trim all round.
    Wheels are Standard Elite, they were stripped back, and I etch primed them. then gave them a few coates of Anthracite, followed by laquer!
    Need doing again, as numpty arse idiot who changed tyres, scratched crap outta them! They PAID for that!
    Wrapped mirrors in Carbon and Steering wheel inserts, plans to do all internal Dash Fake wood Cak too!
    No engine mods, as exhaust on its own seems to have freed a few horses(old one literally fell off), and its not my intention to do anything either.
    Happy just chilling along!
    So first pic is as bought, the rest are current.
    Oh an one of my speed toy too!

    Thanks,
    Exhaust was hand built by a guy called Leon at Alunox. His stuff is simply a work of art, he does a lot for Old F1 cars, building the Manifolds etc. And he did some work for me on one of my old Fireblade's, so I knew the quality to be expected!
    And price was very good compared to VX and Miltek etx. Lifetime guarantee, and I can change to whatever I want, at any time.
    Wasnt sure about the center out as, but since I sprayed rear skirt it looks fine, just need a surround for it!
