I am planning on completely restoring my si.
1st step come january i am going to replace all floor pans and weld weld on new sills.
Since im working at ford i can get the parts quite easily. Has any1 done this??
If so any advice or pics or some sort of help would be nice ;)
Also thinking of seam welding chassis??

Then im going to replace steering rack, antiroll bars, driveshafts, hubs, stabilisers & lower arms wiv genuine ford parts but replace bushes with powerflex.
Then upgrade brakes all round.

Cheers
