Hi

It's mostly a standard car. The exhaust mid cat has been replaced with a silencer. And a koyo radiator.The rest including intercooler is standard.

Oh here's a grousome picture of what lays ahead...

Missed your reply somehow... I want to do things as best I can, it needs 3 patches for an mot. So it could go through in the summer if I patched it up. However I want to learn more than how to bolt on pads, discs or shocks and I want this car to last a long time... So hopefully 28th advice I'll be doing a lot of preservation and prevention underneath .... The body works bad in places so will need a lot of work there to make it presentable....

On that note, I had some spare time yesterday( Its even rarer than spare cash) so started taking the interior out and see what horrors await.

And to my surprise ( so far) nothing too scary! I would be interested to hear if what's in the pics is good/bad or average...

Ok here we go...hope the pics make sense and they're not too boring (D)

Image

Sills look ok despite rust bleeding over the outside.
Image

Image

Any idea what these plugs are for? Beaten seats for a different market?
Image

First casulty of the day, broken on the floor but to remove the seatbelt... Both appear seized solid!!
Image

Image

Rear seems clean?

Image

Only rust in rear floor, the support beams look like they'll make working in the area a nightmare.
Image

Sneak peak at passenger side so far

Image

Image

Possible crustyness

Image

Running out of time, but drivers side ..
