That's rather nice. Assume you did it yourself and not a new product?

:thumleft: Fantastic to see it get to this stage. It really does sound smooth and refined.

On the one hand, you should really put RRP stickers on it to say "this is what we can do". On the other hand, it looks so good it would be sacrilege to put stickers on it.... :?

Next up is to tackle the oil cooler vents so I can get maximum cooling to the new larger oil coolers.

Fog lights out and just mocked up some cheap grill until the nice stuff arrives. I think it actually looks better without the fogs!

BTW this is done at my house not in our workshop, just thought I would mention that.

Thank you all for following and your comments, I hope it's inspired you all of what can be done with modest tools and a little bit of time. :thumright:

Brilliant job Carl. It's great to see an ambitious project actually finished. What will you do with your weekends now? Do you have a plan for the car?

Cheers Pete! The car is actually for sale! I know surprise, but I'm after something different now and I just don't have room for this one.

The maybe is a Jaguar F type coupe and if I can stretch myself the SVR version
