GT.Clover 170 Q2

So took my cloverleaf alloys off my Gt today and took them in the be refurbished. I am having them done in a smoke chrome as close to mirror casing colour as possible. Have even left a spare mirror cover with them to colour match.
Put my old 16's on from my old 2004 GT...Hmm looks a bit 80's now. Interestingly her handling is not as crisp, and ride quality is not massively different from my 18's?

Also received the paperwork to transfer my old GT plate onto my clover. So have my lovely new plates ready to put on her this evening. This is the second GT this plate is going on..lol.

Got a message from Gazzella racing to say they are looking into my strut brace order with the supplier in Germany.

Hmm..Very nice ..Not bad for red...

You ordered some dodo juice supernatural yet? Great stuff for the final stage. Gives such a deep luxurious shine.

Not sure mate? Might buy a cheap boot lid spoiler from the bay of E (only a wee lip one though) and give that the carbon treatment too. Not decided yet though. Only had the car a week

Very exited going to collect my newly refurbished clover GT alloys later today. Cannot wait to get them on the car. Hope the colour choice works with the black paint.

Pictures later.
