Eleven years old and still goin strong.

Well guys I bought my LT new in 2001 and have 65000 km on it know and decided a few months ago to do some preventative maintenance on her.The only thing was it got a bit outa hand. I fitted the upgraded throttle cables ,new throttle shaft,new brake pads all round,HID light kit,PIAA driving light kit,Remus exhaust,Rinewest chip ,full oil and filters,gear shaft and engine and fuel filter.Then it got interesting and I did a valve set coolant clean and brake fluid flush,don't think I forgot anything ! .The only thing is when you've had it apart for a few months and your in a rush to get it back together you fit that damn Tupperware twenty times because you forget to fit something under it, anyway going to take it for a shakedown soon to see how it goes.....
