Right, well i shall start with this
Image
The day i picked it up, since then i have done quite a few things, its been lowered 60mm
Image
I have done something mental with the roof lining!!
Image
The si bumpers went on!!
Image
Then got some frst recaro's!!
Image
Mk3 golf splitter went on ( it has since been ripped off but it will be on again soon!! :)
Image
I put clear indicators in the front and the side, hid kit for headlights (will be going soon), wired up the fogs!!

The plan:
Chrome weller steels
Rear weel spacers (with longer studs)
Either an xr2 cvh carbed engine or a 2.0 silvertop
Strut braces
Better brakes (probs off a 2i)
And hopefully coilovers!! :)
What do you guys think??

I think black xr2i skirts and arches will finish that off with the blue and black contrast. Looks good

Yeah either a cvh out of an xr2, a carbed
One to save on things i need to buy, or a 2.0 zetec (probably a silver top)
I have been thinking about skirts but the only problem is the bottom half is done in grey stonechip, so it might
Not look right??

I think maybe just somr rs accessory skirts would look better?? As the wheels i want are still only 13's and the 2i kit will make them look tiny?? It will take me a little while to do anything more as i'm pretty skint tbh :(

Lol at te donkey, shit about the exhaust.
Just rip the back box hanger off break the centre section at the rear beam and drive it pretending your in a formula one car :)

Or use it as an excuse the bin work and spend time fixing it :)

Yeah i dont really think arches suit 4 doors anyway, but i do fancy some rs accessory skirts tbh!! The exhaust is back on :)
Image
This may be welded an braced but it was pushing against the gear linkage (bloody typical)
Just cut the brace off and got my dad to weld it up again!!
Its all good now :D
