It was originally a pale metallic blue car with a blue interior. I too had assumed it was a factory black car.

Free flowing 3” tti system with Dynamax mufflers, vast improvement over what was on there.

It’ll go back into storage while the family decide what they want to do about it.

First time back on its wheels Today. The slightly wider track back and front and new tyres fill the arches nicely and give a slight rake. Subtle but it makes all the difference I think. Tracking to set, bit of a road test and I think its about done.

Looks great Blue.
Amazing what the correct size/width/offset on a set of wheels can do to the overall appearance of a car!

Shame to see it go straight back into storage, can't you convince them to let you smoke it around for a bit, extended testing and all that ;)

It’ll get a road test and then it needs to go so I can get the Barracuda back, I’d be in no rush if I had the space!
