There isnt much that sounds better than velocity stacks on an S54 :shock:
I agree mate. I still love the sound now. Only problem is the petrol don’t last long 😂 and it’s so hard not to drop it down into second just to hear the stacks

So few more updates done this week

Led interior lights
New passenger headlight
Powerfold mirrors fitted (still got to split my old ones down and put the motors in them as there in better condition)

So sorry for the overload of pics but gave it a good clean today. Usual process.

Coated some of the interior plastics in gtechniq C4. Absolutely great stuff and should last. Surprising how far the small bottle goes and still have a bit left to top up when needed.

Cleaned the metal behind the panel.

Also put my original mirror cases on. Much better quality compared to rattle can. Could get the bases on due to wiring being a pain. So when I eventually find a good bumper planning on getting that resprayed and the mirror bases now I know how to split them.

Image

Also nice bit of beading
