As Iv been looking at other peoples projects i think it was time that i got my one on here so the story begins. I found the car on ebay with only 3 pictures and about 2 hours left on the auction, i was taking a big gamble but the car was the right one that iv been looking for plus it was very cheap so i placed a bid and won the auction only problem was there was no tax on her and it was all the way in preston (400 miles away from me) so i hoped on the train, crossed my fingers and went.
The pictures on the auction was only this:
Picked the car up and sorted the insurance and tax so i can drive back home which was a nightmare as the car was not driving strait and the steering wheel was not on the forward way if you understand what i mean so anyway as soon as i got home the first job was to sort out why its not staying still in a strait line and install a armrest so i will let the pics doing the talking.
First full wheel alignment which i found out that there was bent drop links at the front, bent lower control arm at the rear and the fool who changed the tyres last put the wider wheels at the front and shorter ones at the back.
now for the mods on the exterior. The car was a CATD which the seller did say that he hit a lamp post on the front corner but the repair job was crap as first the owner put a rep M3 front bumper which is wider than an msport one so he tryed to roll the front wings to mach the edges of the bumper and the car came with Xenon headlights but he replaced it with a non xenon one and looks a bit wired to say the truth at the front so first i didnt want to do anything to the wings or front bumper because its going in to a body shop for a full respray in late spring this year so i started on the rear which was first of with a M-Sport rear bumper, Lip spoiler, a scorpion back box and for the wheels 18" staggered CSL reps
Now for the interior i spent hours and lots of pennies to buy 3M Carbon wrap to cover the faded trim, OEM CD player, Cup holders, a sport gear knob, new leather gaiters and last a retro fit of electric sport seats.
These are the only pics i got so i will up load more after i give her a good wash all over.
any comments welcome.
