That's either very clever or terrifyingly real. Don't know how you'd fake that.

yeh the fire pic isnt that hard............. time laps setting on ya dslr that's positioned on a tripod. a mate with a steel frame, rope soaked in fire, walks slowly behind the car. the camera takes a 30 sec exposure capturing the fire and turns it into a wall of fire in the pic.



the bonnet scoop started of as a s5 scoop, but I didn't like the look and wanted a larger opening, so its a custom s5 scoop widened/opened up......... :)

yeh the lower parts of the dash were painted by me with paint cans gloss black, the top dash pad was re skinned by dash doctor and couldnt bring myself to paint it so left it as is. Still looks alright but you can see the difference if you look carefully.

Great car, except the wheel/tire situation. The rear wheels aren't wide enough for those tires for best handling, and I'd go even wider to get them out flush with the flares.

And the motor is out. Getting ported, freshen, turbo upgrade, engine bay painted and other goodies.
