Barbados green tonner

Post  Killer hq on Mon 12 Mar 2012, 1:02 am

Hey all, just signed up to this forum and thought I'd share some pics of my tonner, its barbados green (which I'm not a big fan of, ay rob, but it is growing on me), its got an alloy/timber tray, dragway indies 14x8 on front and 15x10 on rear, xr8 bonnet scoop (sorry holden fans), it runs a slightly worked 308 which will soon be injected, aussie 4 speed (til i kill it), dual exhaust and extractors. i have a few plans for it but for the moment i just want to get it tidy and reliable. Hope you like it. Cheers.

Thanks m8, it was done pretty well, in my opinion it suits the lines of the bonnet really well.

Welcome aboard mate...

I've a soft spot for green, have had a few ute's and vans in varrying shades.
Very neet and love how she's dropped on her guts at the front.
I don't mind the buldge either, that's one thing Ford does well, they have great add on's

Yeah i dont think i could bring myself to raise the front, even though the tyres are regularly kissing the guards, it took me a while to warm up to the bonnet idea but now iv come to love it.
