Some pics of the old girl, she needs some restoration. J smacked her one against a curb 3 years ago, she's been off-road ever since. The damaged was only to wheel and suspension etc, so no body work damage. Although the previous owner must have got a paintbrush to those rear arches:grrr muppet!

To get her on the road, she need the bulk head wielding, steering rack sorting, complete re-spray, and engine out re-condition/port & polish etc, maybe some tweeks here and there under the bonnet and a few suspension upgrades, and braking upgrades, but otherwise I want her to look as standard as possible. Hopefully, there is not too much more work lurking though as we are running out of time.





If you look real close, you can see my poor cavy in the back ground.

Alloys don't suit it, could do with a nice set of Cav GSi rims IMO, but it should look good once the work's been put in.:Cool2:

Whatever it takes to get her done, will be done. I've been protecting her from various attempts to rob her, destory her and buy her for the past three years. I'm not giving up on her......

Yeah, as bad as the outer arches look, I'll bet money that the inners are shot too unfortunately, aswell as the outer sills/chassis strengthening plates/rear plates etc.

Mine went in for a £500 quickie arch job 14 months ago. Three months and £2K+ later.......................
