cheers for kind replies.

needs a bit of work here and there but engine wise she is perfect.

will be leaving body standard as i prefer standard looking cars with subtle tweeks. might be mothballing it over summer and do all the work needed, and save for insurance as they wont let me pay monthly due to me being 17.
