Yo sorry guys, I didn't notice all these replies. Cheers for the kind words.
I suppose you are back at work now Brae
Keying someone else's car is not cool.
Unfortunately, I got the wrong paint - It was near xmas and repco was selling it for like 6 bucks a can or something redonkulous, next time this car is painted it will be a proper job.
As for what I will do with the wheels, I don't have a second car that can fit all 4 in but may borrow a family members' van. I'm thinking either trading in the tyres or selling altogether. I'm buying a new set of Rays wheels from Japan through ml racing so they will be wearing Potenzas and I'm not too sure what I can do with a heavy(will compare with rays maybe?) set of wheels. Plus I am also thinking of repainting my stock wheels in a pearl black colour because I like the 14s as they are light and stock.
Since my last update I've just been enjoying summer, it's so good to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD with some twisty roads and a mid engined car
I did have a crash though whilst out in the country, completely awkward intersection coming out of a 70km zone to a 50 with the sign right infront of said intersection, and after realising the striaght road I wanted to take would make me cross centre line I decided to take the hidden left albeit too late. I'm now much more vigilant and appreciate all the tips I get re driving safely out there. Even though it may be open road I do not have to drive at 100 all the time - oh and I did have one aggressive driver in a hatchback try to tailgate me only to get left behind in the corners
I won't be attending any runs in Feb unfortunately but I most likely will make the AGM.
So besides new wheels, I'm investing in making my car safer, in particular new indicators (one side broke when I crashed) and getting my headlights aligned and maybe new bulbs if budget allows. It'll be interesting to see if I can get the indicator + plastic to fit securely on bent metal, if anyone has experience straightening the metal bit that holds indicator and bumper side in place I will pay in food and alcohol
Unfortunately ebay seller in UK is a bit unresponsive -- but after this my clutch will need doing and I'll save for the tyres.
I did wreck my front bumper I admit but I've learnt from my mistake and will find a better solution to fitting a replacement than the brackets in the sides.
Now for some pics --
