Nice find there Mike, but why did Ben not finish the car back to standard?

I've noticed that the running decals on the guards are missing and the GSR badges require the black outline.

Looks Great Ben, well done.

But wait, there's more! I have stumbled across another which I'll be posting up for anyone who missed it.

It's great to see these cars being featured as of more recent times.

Looks great in standard form, must agree the exhaust has to go . Not being picky but also missing front and rear mudflaps which come standard on the car from factory.

Great story, great article.

I can totally understand how he feels, when I came across my cordia I honestly didn't sleep well
for 3 nights from the excitement.

When mine is finished, hopefully one the magazines will post the story too.
