Driveshaft's arrived today, very well made, mind you for £400 they needed to be. Decided to paint them in a nice gold colour, the reason is that when I worked at McLaren all the road cars and F1 cars driveshaft's were painted gold, it just made them look special.

Going to give the car a road test on Saturday and I will get the wife to video car driving past the house, so should be able to put a link on here so you can view it..

Wont be long....happy days!

Very nice work - there's something very pleasing about nicely machined metal.

Sounds great and looks like it picks up well when you give it some gas!
