dropping from alloys to steels is keeping afloat dude.
Bandings for the future though, hopefully.
Engines gone. My wheels have gone, all my guitars have gone, my stereos gone, xbox is going, the bikes gone and havnt really got much left.

Think those'd be about the cheapest replacements for the wolfraces i could get man.
Decided not to sell anything else off the car though. Whats bought, is staying.

Ive decided.

White on the exterior trim too dude.
Classy.
Little touches like that really count man.
Excellent attention to detail.
Loving the White. Automaticly makes me think of touring cars, formula 1, speed and jive like that.
Keep the updates comin man. Can't wait to see it rolling.
