My project thread
« on: Jun 29, 2009, 17:51:41 »
Hi everyone.

Here is a link to my chevette project thread. I hope you won't hate me after knowing its for drifting. But I'ts definatly not a tramp drifter. The chevette is like nothing else I have driven. ridiculous amounts of grip and can out do most chavved up boy racers on the back roads as standard. Cant wait to get used to it with 16v powers  ;D

I've tried to add pics of most things I have done but I was getting carried away by finishing it so some pages are pretty bare. It would be great if you could have a flick through and let me know what you think. Still after those rear arches  :(

here it is:

Cheers
Matt

Thats a wicked thread that Matt, typical inner wings eh?? Its nice to see a modded saloon for a change. 7X13 Superlites rule . . I wish I'd had some other wheels to put on the Blue hatch when I sold it, as it went with brand new superlites and tyres >:(
It's better to burn out than to fade away . . .

yeah i remember when you sold it. such a shame. but if your ever after any more midland wheels sorted me a full set with tyres for 350 which i thought was a bargain.

hopefully getting a new exhaust made up sometime soon. current one is no more than an inch from the ground. when i can source some new rear arches it will be time for a respray ;D

cheers
