I've had my Si for quite a long while now but I am rubbish with computers, so never posted up any pictures!
Well anyhow I know now, so here is a few from when I first got her.

Had her since Jun 08. When I got her she was 2 owners from new, 41,000 miles on the clock. Everthing was standard, slightly scruffy around the edges and the only body work that's been done is the passenger cill and rear arch.
Since then I have done a few bits and pieces and I will add more to this thread soon. ;)

Apart from that car looks amazing!

Glad to hear you all like her. :)
After driving her as my daily drive for a few months I decided to sort out a few bits and pieces. I had a set of RS accessory/Eibach springs in my garage that I bought at the Classic Ford show for £25, so they were going on! Rear end first:-

Rear beam was removed
Image

The rear arches although good needed a tidy up as did the rear floor
Image
Image

The floor got good old hammerite
Image
along with a quick tart up of the heatshield
Image

Then it was all put back together with poly bushes, braided hoses and the solid lines were replaced too. Back plates had a re-furb and new brake cylinders fitted. And of course the springs were also fitted, to the old shocks however they had only done 41,000 so will do for now until I can afford coilovers!

Front end rebuild to follow soon, all comments welcome as usual :)

Once the back end was sorted I moved on to the front end.
Image
Had the new Eibach springs to fit but also i had a creak from the front LH wishbone. As you should be able to see the bush was begining to separate, so new wishbones go on.
Image
Removing these was a complete tw*t as all the bolts were again seized and rounded off. To get the bolts out I had to use a cut off hacksaw blade, each bolt taking about 45 mins each :doh:
Whilst I was in there I fitted new drop links as they aren't expensive and straight forward to do.
Image
Shocks got tarted up and the springs fitted along with new top poly bushes. I even got bored a put a bit of a shine on the strut tops. Wheels arches were tidied up too, the odd squirt of Waxoyl here and there too.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Braided hoses fitted eventually due to calipers problems!
Downside was that the calipers, although not too bad the bleed nipple was completely seized and rounded off :x To save any major hassles I bought new/refurbed calipers.
Image
Final piece of the suspension puzzle was a rear strut brace
Image
Time to just drive and enjoy for now. :D
More to follow soon
Comments as usual welcome
