    Raven Blue GTi - New stuff :)

    Cheers man, did you make it to Ultimate Stance? Cheers! Yours is sweet though, love the fact you have some RWs always wanted a set or RCs but could never find a set haha Thanks! Well surprisingly the car made it inside at Ultimate Stance which i was really happy about, i genuinely didn't expect it and it left me with little time to get things sorted haha. Well i finally got the Gotti's rebuilt as i've been meaning to for ages and im so happy with how they came out. Got everything done locally on them and saved myself a fortune! Also got a really good mate of mine to spend a day machine polishing it too haha it come out surprisingly well and looked pretty good under those unforgiving lights inside at Telford! Some panels do need paintwork though but i can't really complain as the majority of the car is still original paint as gets driven everyday, does well over 1000 miles a month! Not bad for a 12 year old car! Heres some pictures from Ultimate Stance.

Heres a few nice pictures ive been sent & tagged in of my car! Few more updates coming soon and ive been accepted to be inside at Ultimate Stance which im really happy about so fingers crossed look out for some new stuff in the near future! Also, had a new stainless decat system sounds really good, not raspy at all (no barry thanks) just a nice grunt suits the car really well!
