I did start a build thread a while ago but just didn't bother posting up progress photo's etc. I prefer to swing spanners than typing on a keyboard.

 

Anyway, I finished the Contessa Gold SS & thought the guys that aren't on Fake Book might want to see the end result of my 2000 hour build..Cheers Ando

They're a rare spares H series part. Can't remember the part number but probably a shock hole plug in which there's 2 in the blister packet.

Ha! I reckon never lol..she's got plenty of sports appeal as it is. 

 

No such thing..SS flares. Only L34'S & A9X had them. I've got a flared SS anyway so it's no big deal to me  :P

Oh ok. Are they steel or rubber? I think the Torana has a similar big rubber bung for the rear shock hole from memory.

They're rubber. I don't like metal hole plugs either. I cut the the underside of the grommet to fit into the chassis holes turned down lip.
