alright dude, i get on really well with the bloke at the scrappy and he give's me stuff cheaper cuz im always buying honda bits from there, i noticed that your back bumper is batterd so what i'll do is shoot over in the morning cuz i've got to get a bonnet for my mates EG anyway, if you pm me your number i'll drop you a text and let you know how much, if you want it i'll take it of there and then and you can pick it up from me, dont worry im not going to put the price up on it lol i dont actually know the name of the scrappy but i'll find out for you.

o ye and its lookin better already, its mad what a simple wash can do for a car, but i still think you should let me work my magic on it with the mop hahahaha

how much do you think you could get for that interior in yours cuz there is the same in that one at the scrappy, if your on any lude forums could you ask about and see if anyone's interested please!!!

what else do you need? im only asking cuz he said to me the other day that he's gettin rid soon so dont want anythin to go to waste if you need stuff!

Looks real nice, the paint looks to be in good nick, those wheels are killing me tho.

Not sure what the lip is but i like it, its subtle but still noticable.

bit of work today...day off and all...lol

firstly...the crystal side repeaters...to match the fronts and rears....why they ever put ambers on i dont know...



then some nice water beading after sundays first polish....the eagle eyed amongst you will also spot the aero wipers...cant recomend these enough



and last but by no means least...courtesy of some sound scrapyarding by cus...
my new(ish) rear bumper complete with chrome prelude decal...really pleased with this and would like to make it know cus is a star....

appologies for the poor focus but it was raining and i have a blister...lol

theres a small scuff on the one corner...but i reckon it will touch in ok...

just ordered type r gaitors for handbrake and gear...got let down on a cheap skunk2 gearknob ( got it too cheap me thinks) so on the look out for another...carpet mats and disks and pads all round tonight if i get round to it...

oh and whilst takin the old bumper off i found i do have 4ws...so now i need to find out why it dont work....then junk it if i find the bits

I'd get something more high end for a gearknob, ARC ones are nice, but i suppose if the price is right u cant grumble.

I hear over and over again that the 4ws is expensie when it goes wrong so i hope for your sake its something saft like a fuse missing, lol
