i'll keep you all posted about the progress.
i got the car back saturday morning and theguy welding it thought the rear arches would bend out of the way, they didn't. so i've got another job to do, new arches.
i've been off work for the week from smashing my face so i'm polo after the weldin and paying off my other car so it won't get to have it on the road this week, i'm well gutted. but next week i'll have the pictures up of how its all going.  :D

haha, i do that too.
here's some new pics anyway of the welding and stuff.
it was the inner and outer sills on both sides and the front jacking points had to be re-made.


when i got back from picking it up from the welding shop my dad had started turbing some of the garden into a 5 sized parking space, i was well impressed.

and this is it, with the new bumper.



also, is this my paint code (C405)? i need to order a bit to colour in the grey primer.

mine's like, behind the drivers head light, there's an oval plate. i think thats it anyway? i'm trying to find out.
your car'll look cool with a fresh paint job. i'm well excited about getting mine on the road (geek). should only be a couple of weeks now.

yeah, definatly enthusiasts. i'm well into the gt turbos. i've wanted one since i was 10, now 12 years later i have one  :D
i done loads of reading up on them but when i got mine i reaslised i know hardly anything about the internals, i'm learning though, haha.

i took a piccy of the new turbo, air filter and temporary breather set up.

yeah, its a standard garret t2 from a phase 2.
i wanna do a front mount too, my mate got a universal one for his iesta turbo for 95 squid delivered and then just went to sfs for the pipe work. saved loads of money.
there's loads floating about on ebay.
