PostSubject: My Ek9   Sat 16 Jan 2010, 4:42 am

I bought this car in september 2008 with 66k miles, it was pretty much standard apart from the airbox this is how it looked.



then decided to take the aircon out and strip the rear. and change the oem steering wheel for a dc5 one!
decided to give engine bay a clean and wire tuck it and this is how it sits atm with 73k miles on it, most the wires are tucked and just need to put radiator, strut brace and manifold back on. ignore the fuse box and the wires near it and the bag in the bumper haaa.
also gonna have the wheels powder coated in champ white again and getting a 3 point strut brace.






i will add more to this when i have more time (: il add spec then too (:

thanks for looking
