Well having had the car for a week the first modification has happened......
New headlight bulbs!!! Standard H7’s were like candles in jam jars so good some OSRAM nightbreakers. Only just fitted so will headband out after dark for a test and let you know.

First of many little upgrades.....

Also on the gear *****. Lifted the knob up 1-1.5” on the shaft and feels much nice action.

More to come.....

chaps thread has been a bit lacking... mainly because I know have a section in Total 911 as one of the 'Living the Legend' contributors... so if anyone is interested in following the car etc it will all be in there thumbsup
