  • 18 Crowns Royal Saloon & Athlete

    So a couple of months ago after I sold my silver royal saloon I went shopping at auction one Saturday to see what I could get. I had a list of about six cars that fit the bill ready to go. All were grade 4bb to get the best car without paying drug money. Turns out the first two were running pretty well simultaneously and we got both cars. The Royal saloon didn't have rego so we sent it back here straight away but the athlete still had rego so we kept that in Japan until after our trip to see my wife's family. So now we are back from Japan I have picked the Royal saloon up from the compliancer and the athlete is getting on a boat this week. I have decide to keep the athlete as it is the 3.5L with huge brakes and its in immaculate condition. I am going to clean the Royal saloon up a bit and sell it.
    I bought a couple of sets of wheels to go on each and a set of airlift bags for the Athlete. I want to put the traffic stars on the athlete but I don't know if they will clear the brakes. Time will tell.

                  I got to the headlights on the weekend. I used a repco headlight restoration kit. You sand the headlight down to a 1000grit then spray them with the spray that's included and that's it. It made a big difference from what they originally were.

                    Nice, didn't notice at first but that model has lots of partitions in the headlight vs the athlete. These aren't HID right ?

                          Ill compare when the other two arrive. They're both athletes.

                              The black one is a royal saloon G package and the white and silver are Athletes. (silver is not in the photos as a friend has taken it)
                              My previous silver was a royal saloon G package too.
