i really like that, especially like what you've done with the rear part of the roof (like the roof spoiler thingy)
not really a fan of the rear bumper though.

I'm pretty happy with the rear bumper, going to remove the square holes before paint, but have to see how much heat i'm getting trapped in there with a centre exhaust first,

Looks to have a lot of potential.

I really like that roof spoiler, might give it a go making one myself.

Looks great

So since i couldn't find a Bomex lid for a reasonable price -- without way to long delivery time, and the fact that my body guy is absolutely awesome, we figured we could make a better one ourselves, inspired by the bomex, but still with its own twist, a bit more squarish to flow with the lines of the car....

Wahey, so it's finally in Malta. Would have been good to pop across to have a look while I was stuck out here.

I'm shocked to see your mate isn't wearing suitable workshop foot protection. Flipflops are so cheap these days as well [blackeye]

Ahahaha, well he learned his lesson today kicking the exhaust runners while chasing his "b1tch" puppy that took off with his fags! lol He'll be limping tomorrow.

"Safety First" eh...

Hope you had a good time on "The Rock"!
