If you do a search through members motors Richoop did a post about it in his build thread (pipe and slippers i think was the title).

Good luck. Sure it'll be a great day. Agree with matt about the bar. Also as I do a bit of wedding photography....

Re: cool mods for skint people

I can think of a few... For those with roof rails.... Paint strip and polish... Cost sub £20 For those with rear wipers... Remve and fit a grommet (also put a screw in the rear washer pipe) cost >£1 Debadged grill ... Sub £50 Painting bumper rub strips .... £30ish depending if you have any paint.
