My Phase 1 (work in progress)
« on: 14:21, Tue 08 April 2008 »
this is my 5. i got it as a project but turned into more of a restoration.
when i got it he engine was just rebuilt but the turbo and intercooler were nackered so they've been changed, allong with the rear dampers, discs, pads, wheel bearings, lots of welds around the rear susspension and its just gone off to have new sills as you can see straight through them. and its had a new bumper, headlights, pretty much every bulb has been changed, handbrake cables, new horns, new washers, it came with horrible blue ones that sprayed the roof. new door pins, i've had to do other bits and peices but thats all i can think of now.
the pictures rubish because i took it on my phone, i left my camera in a taxi a few weeks ago... gutted :(

the sideskirts are in the back, the tape is just to stop the aches flapping about till the skirts go back on, haha.

Nice project, shame about the weather ruining play time!

Nice colour aswell, are you keeping the bodykit un-painted? I think it looks nice against the blue.  8)

If you do paint the bodykit tungy grey will look good against the electric blue.

yeah it would. i think i've seen one like that in a mag with the engine in the back? it'd be easier than trying to find grey replacement bits, haha.

it was the bb demo car that made me want a blue one. it was well hard to find, only cost 500 notes though. its a shame i've had to change most parts on it. everythings running fine on it now so when the weldings done i'll be happy with it. (fingers crossed)

cheers ollie. i seen the pics of your car, i hope it goes well.

i've dug out a couple of photos of the engine bay. its a bit dirty, when the engine was re-done the bonnet was left off for a while in the garrage before i picked it up. its got a new, bigger air filter in now and the dump vale is going so hopefully i'll get some nice chatter. do 5 engines run chatter? i hope so, haha. and i'm trying to find a newer, cleaner header tank, this one looks rank.

cheers baz. there's not a lot of welding to do. just the sills, inner and outer. its been with a guy this week and i'm getting it back tomorrow. 350 for both sides, i think it was a pretty good price. it'll be back down the MOT shop next week and hopefuly on the road next weekend, funds permitting. just in time for some good weather.
