Looks nice.

Was for sale on here but I also remember it on here ages ago, does it have a PUMA gearknob? If so then its the one I'm thinking of.

yes it has a Puma gearknob it came from south Leicester

Image

got home today and changed the power steering fluid as it whining alot.... still the same so thinking of going to a manual rack sure ive read it can be done?

the ignition barrel was hit or miss so ive ripped it out and cut the steering lock off until i can get a new barrel



IMO puma wheels look awful on the puma but they really suit this! i kept the lattice ones off my last Si so cant decide now which to use

I lost the jack in the sill when changing the wheels

Lowering is deffo on the cards after wishbones as there's not alot left of the bushes on them

I've seen 60mm springs do I need shortened shocks for them?
