    Raptor primer?
    I only heard of the bed liner type stuff. What's it like to use Vinnie?

    Just a little to add still waiting for parts. Door hinges won’t be here till June so have ordered some from a classic car see if I can mod them to fit. Picked up a second hand bonnet today so will strip that and prep. Little feting with the wings and the gaps look good. So a Few pics to keep it running guys

    Pulsar Dual Ceramic Ball Bearing Turbo GTX3584RS Gen2 with a Billet Compressor Wheel High Horsepower Turbine Wheel is good 500-1000bhp help the old girl down the road. The other turbo I was going to fit weighed 19kg. Think it would have broke the manifold this one not even half

    What made you go for that over the New G25/35 range from Garrett? Pulsar also do them. Everyone is raving about the G range
