  8. If you find that offensive ... here in another one The doors, rear tailgate, rear wing, lower sill sections, rear diffuser, wheels and of course the arches are all taken from the GT1 car. Like it or hate it, there is a lot to look at Mike S
  9. Thank you all for you kind wishes and words of congratulation. I will be trying my very best to ensure that this is the last addition......
