Wow mate, this thing looks beyond mint! i'm usually not a fan of maroon/red cars, but i have to say it really looks great on your car.

what are your plans for the other b16 ?

Vettel

Thanks buddy, this colour for an EF8 is super rare as most of them are black! Going to give the other b16 a bit of a clean up, change all the seals and bearings etc then just run it. But before I do that I need new engine mounts a gearbox rebuild/clutch/flywheel :(

Cool CRX man, the gramlights and J's lip look great! I bet she is a fun car to drive on touge-style roads.
