Haha, right! What color is that, midnight blue? I'll buy all the parts for the ecode wipers if you are making it in to a race car and have no use for it, PLEASE!

Edit: And the head rests, car looks like a great platform, good luck.

I will come back to you at first regarding the wipers ;)


/edit

@ myles no.. it will be "RaceCar" ;) I don't need a RacetoworkCar cause i need 1min10sec with my bike to it ;) Locking it up sometimes takes longer than the ride itself :D

My RaceinpublicCar is my (or better will be) 945 16vt and my GetfromAtoBCar is that 965 which theoretically belongs to my GF.. but.. yeah... she would scrap it in 2 weeks without me... last time i had to fillup 2 litres of 10w40 to see a bit on the dipstick again.. dry like a bucket of sand...


/edit2

BTW:

Yestersday i had the chance to get a 242 for 450 bucks... but it stood for 16 years and i would have been a blindbuy... the blue 245 i've seen in person... wherat.. seeing bakterius 242... meh... do want

Bought a 93' B230FT Squirterblock.. this one gets just H rods. i dont want to spend much money on oversizepistons.. it will get honed but nothing more...

Still not sure what concept this one will get... 8v 16v or t5... i think ill start with 8v or 16v cause i can and when the card drove some kms on track itll get a t5..

we'll see how it is competing on the track with a redblock
