Good to see you laugh.

Money comes and goes, family is more important... there are plenty of rusty old GTX's out there. Perhaps you haven't found the right one yet...

Edit: I saw a FWD GTX turbo for sale over here... I thought they were all AWD

The GT are FWD turbo sedan... the GTX are AWD turbo hatch. If it's not one of the two, it's mislabeled, or a conversion. I don't think it's any different in AU

Currently working on photoshoping a concept of my car, hopefully it should be done sometime this week.
Also does anyone know how to color match objects in Photoshop?

Wow!! Sounds like a great guy!! Maybe you should slip him some extra cash for his patience! I bet he'd let you slide for as long as you needed to, if he was willing to wait this long!

The guy who sold me the B6T donor car has been waiting since July, with just a $100 deposit... I did however sweeten the deal offerring him the install job as he is a turbo mechanic...

Btw: nice rims... I use a streamlined version of photoshop on my Samsung Galaxy tablet... what do you need to color match?
