AbsinthTears "Elixir" Rolling Project / Daily

Postby AbsinthTears » Tue Apr 21, 2015 5:58 pm

Something ive been meaning to do since the change of the website years ago :sorry, what?:

Some of you older members will of seen some of the work from the older site

Well i originally bought the car back in the winter of 2007. The P/O mentioned that the clutch was going and showed me a few extras that i snapped up within the price (including a rear end bumper & arch bodykit).
Drove my new baby home until the clutch went the same day :oops:
SO a friends recovery truck latter, a brand new clutch & a few other small problems i was one happy pup :D
