Here are some pics of my huge DIY job
It is not about fishkeeping but my car
My father bought it to me when I was 18 years old, with years passing the car suffered but I preferred to modify and immortalize my first car rather than giving it away
The project took several weeks to be achieved (sorry for making you wait) some things turned out wrong and I needed help from professionals however I did it :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
That was a big expensive time consuming project what you see here is just a small part of the job (engine and suspension modifications, electronics and audio system.... all has been redone)
Here's how the car looked before:

and now the job is done :

Here's how it looks now

Thanks all for viewing

Looked like a paddock basher to start with haha but big difference now. Did you put all the damage on it to start with?
