This is fucking amazing :drool
sweet man its looking the absolute goods. wished we had fours over here
absolutely amazing man!! Great job!
Do we have a "Ride of the Year" award? 'Cause this is it.
In what, 12 months? you've gone from this rusty thing
it is an awesome transformation,this car.
How bizarre............. Only this morning I was thinking of you and your project and was about to send you a pm for an update and WHALLA, here you are.
Plenty to see obviously and I will get back to it all later but obviously the other lads are impressed.
How's that 'monster' tractor going ??
I am such a whore; I can't get enough of this thread. Fine job sir, much kudos.
if there is a ride of the year, this is certainly my vote
I know someone who's looking for one so choose your poison, male or female........... OOPS, sorry folks, wrong site :mrgreen
Nearly road legal no, just a couple things left to do. One of them was the wheels so ive found myself some different ones, got them test fitted today think I may need to space the backs a little. They need a refurb mind but unsure of what colour to go for. Also bought myself a digital dash seen as my temperature gauge im the dash is no longer with us. Well till I decide what to do to rectify.
Apart from all this I need to get down to the MOT station..... which is provisionally booked in for Friday
Pictures as always, I know you love them so.
really what a cool car !
You know what would finish it off? Spray the doorhandles, it makes a HUGE difference. And use white turn signals in your fender, makes the car 10 years younger.
I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it myself
Is the oil cooler a modded ST185 part? How did you get the window trims on?, I see a lot of broken trim clips as usual
Those wheels look fine but maybe 'gunmetal' grey (that might be too much grey ?) and I like that digital gauge and checked out Acewell for more info.
However....... I did notice the discrepancy between the analogue and digital RPM at idle ?
Member Aaron is building a fairly comprehensive gauge at the minute.
Would your car look better with yellow fog lights I don't know ?
Awesome work man!! I say go white on the wheels, it may be extreme but i think it would look awesome!!
strange how after all the major work that was needed a year ago or so,we're now discussing little touches like door handle colours :biggrin
Not going to keep banging on about your achievement Ian,you know this already so lets see.....hmmmm actually door handle coordination in contrast with the bodykit etc isnt a bad shout y'know....yellow fogs for the JDM kinda look but i think the current look keeps it clean...slightly darker wheels ,like a bronze tint,with bodycoloured calipers may be a good look
Any updates? Also what paint did you use to paint your grill?
As it happens there is a bit of an update. Tomorrow will be the maiden voyage She is finally Insured, Taxed and passed the MOT. Fingers crossed all will go well.
Taken long enough hasnt it!
The Paint was just black Acrylic 2 pac paint, its a shame the grill had be painted before as its not as good as I want and was nigh on impossible to smooth out being plastic, so im on the look out for a replacement at some point.
nice one, make a vid !
