I would like to say that these three cars wouldn't have survived as long as they have if it wasn't for these guys.....   

    JamesV6CDX,  Daz aka DLK,  HKT aka Taxi Al,  Serek , and Rob G.  I don't take any credit, as all I do is clean, drive and continually break them ::) I really do appreciate their efforts as these cars are not easy to work on with the rain running down between your butt cheeks or with sun trying to do it's best to cremate you....long may they continue to do what they do, because without them I for one wouldn't be able to enjoy the pleasure /madness, : ::) of Omega ownership.  :y :y :y

As you say Ken...its down to others for the mechanics.....TB, HKT, YZ250, KW, CG and others. I am just the driver.
Always be grateful to them :y

As for you, young Matthew...no excuse ;D ;D ;D

Thanks :y The ramps are a lot better than the lower bog standard ones and are nice and safe when under the car,obviously you will still need your trolley jack and axle stands for any wheels off jobs, but a decent bit of kit to have, and the bonus of lumping them around will give you Arnie style biceps with prolonged use as well ;D :y

Think you're right,PFL Elite wheels,sent off to Spit and Polish and let them choose the colour.....I really like them myself and although  I do realise that they might not suit everyone ... you have to try different stuff,just to see what works and what doesn't. I 'm thinking of getting another set and doing it on the Red MV6 :-\

Funny we all have different tastes....there's me...I prefer the basic wheels as are on the blue one.
Was trying to imagine that sort on the red one, although the ones you have are pretty 'cool' :y

The white car being an ex traffic car,I didn't want to take to much of it's past identity away and matt black painted steelys wouldn't have done,I just really wanted to use what I had,rather than spending money on a set of wheels that cost more than I paid for the car.But like every thing with these cars,it's work in progress,  and if some nice s/hand wheels come along then if they suit,then I'll be having them,but you know the unwritten rule about this stuff...... :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X!!! :y

To right.....fingers crossed that every thing that needs to be done is boxed away in the next couple of weeks,ice/snow and spanners and laying under a car...it's just so wrong!  ::)
