Died the black death on the way home after I bought it (very cheap...)

Obtained donor Aero for go faster bits.
Slowly, slowly, soon to be Aero spec.....
like a snail...fast forward 4 years later... got everthing swapped and I have an "Aero spec" Vector... which has been great. been slowly swapping seals and things that had perished and sorting out some minor bugs & funny noises, couple boost leaks. My daily now. Still have to swap my memory seat and few other bits.
