Get it...

 

Its best to deal with the source and sort it out directly as opposed to posting something which can harm reputations, possibly unfairly(?). Wise choice.

 

Good luck with it and hope it goes well.

sad.png Soon...

 

 

 

Soo had a go at getting my turbo painted, looks ok, from a distance laugh.png I had it painted in silver after i sandblasted it coz i got sick of looking at a dirty turbo everytime i popped my hood,

I may need to go over the red again, still got abit left to sand untill its perfect but i dont think i'll ever get it as good as the vision inside my head is. The turbo hasnt been polished yet either so it will be shinier once i get around to doing that.. way the f**k too hot to even function these days (over 40degrees almost every day)

EDIT:

 

also decided to have a proper crack at the turbo, come out half alright, could of been better but it was just such a tedious job.
