I had my T remapped via Revo and it's transformed the van, granted it's not a track weapon but makes going up hills a darn site easier (y) and surprises a few rear bumper rubbers when a slow van leaves them in his dust ?

Thats what i am aiming for. Now its running as it should its no slouch but they told me i should expect upwards of 180bhp now everything is new. Showed me a printout of one 2.5 that got over 200bhp with just a remap.

Have passed the point of no return today. started as a bit of rust removal and got a bit carried away. Done upto the swage line with Joton Marine paint (satin Black), we use it on our landrover roll cages/chassis and it great stuff. Really thick hard wearing and sandal after a couple of days but best of all it stops rust and makes a great undercoat if i get bored in a few months and can overpaint it in another colour. Got a few bottles of black gravitex to do upto the lower swage line in the next few days and still got the bumpers to paint. Then add a go faster stripe and its looking better (the orange stripe is the fine lining tape i used to mask it-Just testing the water :) )

Would love to kit the magic 200 mark but my gearbox would explode! Paint work looks good, pin stripe works well.

Thanks guys. Have been experimenting with different colour pinstripes and currently have blue on. But not sure on it, think it needs to be a bit brighter to show up more against the silver and black

I agree with you both, the blue just doesn't show up as well on the 2 colours. May try some red next but upto now orange is a favourite. I am also tempted to try the wheels in silver:unsure:

Definitely orange, need to add an accent colour to make it really pop (y)

I actually kind of like them as they are, breaks the front up, almost a negative image of mine ?

Have held off painting them for the moment to see if the silver grows on me. But upto now i am still thinking of doing them black

Hopefully this will help you decide (y) I actually prefer colour coded now ?

Trims are better in black i reckon (y)
And i think the silver wheels will look better as a contrast against the new paint .
Did you 'find' them new wheels kicking around at work ? :unsure:
