That is such a gorgeous and clean wagon. If I could choose any wagon it would have to be that. Great job.

Oh, and Orgasmo is a hilarious movie.

Yeah, didn't like the old ones at all. New ones are nice, but need centercaps.

I'm not crazy about the front grille or lip, but the package as a whole is very nice.

Nice job mate, I own a 94 GF8...gotta question for you though.
Your top wing, how is that installed? Brackets to the glass? is it drilled thru the glass? I have a MRT wing exactly like yours but not idea on how to mount it.

The new wheels make a big difference, bigs tyres too.
The blue paint work is cool. Overall very nice wagon.

How much do the springs lower the car?
And do you have any rubbing issues on the rear arches or shocks with the choice of tyres size you have gone for.
