    Default Resurrection!

    Hi guys & gals,


    My name is Ahmed and I live in Bahrain. I own a viper red 93 RT/10.


    7 years ago I owned one, I had traded my E39 M5 for it and I personally thought I got the good end of the deal at that time. It was a 94 with 25k miles on it.


    The RT/10 had:


    K&N Intakes with tubes
    Racing Wires and Plugs
    Upgraded Radiator and Fan & Thermo
    Upgraded brakes and KW Suspension
    Short Shift Kit
    Headers and cat back exhaust system
    Interior modifications to dash and seats.


    Some pics of the beast from 2007



















    I then sold it to pay for our dream wedding which I know my wife really wanted, so I made the obvious choice of my bride over my pride and joy toy.

    Off to the restoration and preservation specialist it goes!


    Some paintwork here and there, interiors treatment, new Michelins and lowering springs along with new exhaust tips.


    It's almost done, just awaiting the exhaust tips to arrive monday morning. This is very exciting indeed!

    Thanks fellas, and a special thanks (as always) goes to JonB for getting me the parts I needed in record time. The last thing I needed was to have may car sit there idle at the specialist workshop awaiting parts.

    I also wanted to get your feedbacks if you don't mind... my car is a 93 with antenna, the mast is missing as you can see from the pic below. I really wanna source the OEM mast just cause I want the car to be as OEM as possible.

    What do u guys think I should do? Put on a fixed 30" OEM one, or fix a smaller 3" fixed antenna. Or install a retractable one?

    BTW, can't seem to find the OEM antenna mast, it's out of stock everywhere, Jon can u help?
