    Now it needs wider wheels or spacers

    When's the LS swap happening?
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    update, gearbox fucked after 5k, mazda replaced it under warranty but complained that they found "rubber under the guards" Gave the car to Super Pro / Fulcrum to design adjustable sway bars etc for there catalogue, got all the parts etc for free

    If so it's the tits. Highly recommended, I use it on the front of my car on country trips to prevent stone chips. Downside for doing your car is it only lasts six months.

    The first time i tried it i used the $99 wagner gun from bunnings, but came out so thick it just layered on, next one
    was same gun but the $49 fine attachment, was about 50% better, But best of using a normal spray gun, 20psi 1.8 tip .
    i'll do this write up / video this weekend

    That looks surprisingly cool, probably because it was properly sprayed as opposed to a can job like most flat black drift rockets you see these days.

    Does it come in other colours? What's the plan beyond 6 months if that's how long it lasts?

    Are gearboxes a thing with these ND's, or are you just unlucky?

    Really keen to see how the turbo kit goes. Only thing I would consider selling my SE for at the moment is an RF with a similar turbo kit installed.

    Shame to hear about the gearboxes. What's the weak point?
