Well, after deciding to keeping the Cab Design Standard and not doing conversion, i was deciding what to do with this:
After having a look around on the net, i found a 316i 2 door in Zinnoberrot on Copart. It's cat clear and has 122k on the clock, no v5, mot or service history. Did a HPI check and its only got one owner!!! 8O So this is my new little project!!
Got it picked up today and came back with a flat battery. A quick jump and its running, abit tappetty at first but runs well. It has had some chav inspiration tho with tinted lights & windows, 17" Fox 5 alloy wheels, lowered and Ripspeed tail pipe extentions.
There are a few normal issues which need sorting, these are:
there some slight rot on the rear arches
the scuttle has had a patch of welding which looks untidy
Central locking doesnt work (Sorted)
Hazards aren't working (Sorted)
Manual Sunroof wont roll back
Centre console has seen better days
Carpet has been burnt from a patch of welding under the accelerator pedal
Get MOT and V5
I'm sure there bound to be a few more issues but first things. Need to get it sorted for MOT and start the process or the transformation.
Anyway, here are some pics:
Will keep you posted.
