This is what I love about this site... a bit of time, skill and effort can improve something no end for little or no cash!!

Can't wait to see it in the flesh...

lordy, an amazing result! not many would know whether factory or d.i.y.

Goes to show that manufacturers back then had to improvise too, to achieve a more interesting look.

i wonder how GT achieved purple haze?
