Engineer: 'Wereabout Engineering' for the seats, & for the rest, 'sa secret, 'cos he's retired, moved south & won't do this sort of stuff anymore unless he tolerates you. That's right eh Ugly?

Future Plans: Air-con & finally get the dash sorted out. About to be taken off the road in early Oct for fuel tank mods, steering column fix & to check everything else that I have IDed in my real-world onroad testing since I got it registered. Still can't find the engine-bay rattle between 85 & 90km/Hr though!!! :x I better get a custom numberplate soon too, since they are cheaper up here.
Pics: Sorry - Useless on these computer thingys. It's red, with silver "Tow-balls" that are swinging 4cm off the ground... Trust me, if you see it, you'll know it's a heavily modded car. :D
