BIG RED II my tzd!!!

Post by talbotsteve » Fri Apr 10, 2009 7:25 pm

This is the red TZD i recently bought off the forum from a really friendly guy in Manchester, I've fitted my bonnet off BIG RED I but the wife want rid of it :cry: I've also fitted the zx wheels. I need to swap over the front drivers wing as my old BX one isn't as pink as this one :D I have got the wheel centers somewhere?? :roll:

Nice. The TZD I am using on the BXagon (the Green Hornet) might well sport bonnet scoops like that soon... 8)

We have quite a problem locally with flooding of the poorly maintained roads, so i've taken all the induction trunking back to the join above the pump and fitted a performance filter, which is fed from this vent. A friend hydraulic'd a peugeot some years back due to the poor filter air feed location and i just fugured this was a better bet........ :D
