No real plans to mess around with the power/engine.
Response is good especially for the power it produces. This project should really be called Hollywood makeover as its getting lots of cosmetic surgery. It would have been nice to have been able to post nice pics of the car but honestly is a bit of an eyesore right now and here is why

Spunky headlights



Rotten arches





An there is the absence of the front splitter


The plans are simple and in order

1 fit the new carbon wrapped splitter (cheers Newera)

2 wet sand and buff the headlights

3 cut out the arch rot, fit wider arches (cheers Japsalon) and hubcentric 25mm spacers until I chose which wheel to go with

4 rip out interior and completely freshen up with carbon dipped interior trim, black carpet, paint the roll cage black, new steering wheel and new front seats and flock the dash board

This is going to take the bloomin best part of the rest of the year :(

Next year will see the bonnet go, front bumper and front qtr panels and a complete respray

So far the only thing that I've bought that's turned up and of half decent quality is this



The other bits were promtly returned

Should be an interesting project/resto, happy to help when my workshop is built as we discussed. Can't believe the rear arches were allowed to get that bad, they have actually eroded away! Keep the updates rolling as she progresses mate:thumbsup:

They are really bad but the rest of the car seems fine. Strut tops are good, underneath is above average as well.
I have plenty of bits for you to pretty up :)

Here is what I'm doing with the arches. The body shop says its best not to blend them in which I prefer anyway

Certainly not led, the light shield is so cloudy i'm surprised any light comes out at all. Easy fix though

Suggestions for the rear ? I don't think I will be fitting the rear seat's. I'm swaying to the idea of just covering everything up but I want it fitted very snuggly.. what padding can I put down



The panels are going to be dipped in carbon once Drewzer gets set up

Im sure I remember reading about some automotive carpet which could be gently heat-formed to shape - could be an option for tidying up the rear?
