Found few more pics of the ti. unfortunately it has had some damage to the n/s/f wing and passenger door so i bought a donor ti for it. the exhaust fell off when i was driving it on the trailer! so im going to get a complete new system including ss manifold the engine is going to be completely rebuilt and bay detailed aswell as a proper respray. the interior has mould all over the seats so im hoping that will clean up ok

PB's great plan to fleece the world, think they're looking for $400 USD/yr to allow links to work to third party sites.

However, yesterday if you put "~original" at the end of the link, like this "... zpsyiac8zod.jpg~original[/img][/url]", then the photos were showing.

I'm sure the boffins at PB are aware of this being shared around the world and will come up with some way to stop it working, but it functions as a fix at the moment.
