Looking good my friend, liking the TV Sun visors, how much did they set you back?

Cheers Lee

Im just waiting for another gsi spoiler should be with me today from ebay so then I can get to work on it. I took my old one off last night as you can see the massive holes the guy who had it before me made they were really rusty so had to grind them back and treat the rust. Ill post more pics once I do abit more work on it.

Nice to see you do it properly, some people would just stick the spoiler back on and leave the rust, until it's too rotton to do anything about it.

Depending on the funds, strip it back to shell. Repair any thing that needs doing. Then a full respray in Arden blue (same colour), strengthen engine bay. Set of compomotive mo's in white, or speedlines in white. 2.0Let, and gsi kit back on.
Want it to look as standard and subtle as I can bodywork wise, but go like **** of a stick.

I don't have the funds yet lol. I'll buy a runaround from auction and do it as a hobby project.
Standard Let pushes out around 200bhp iirc. Being used to 106bhp with mine I think that will be enough :thumbs_up:.
I want something that will wipe the floor with much bigger cars.
Had 2 little scrotes in 1.4 corsas up my arse monday night and tbh it was hard for me to pull away which was a bit depressing.

**Oh and sorry for hi-jacking the thread Stewart.**

Try struggling to pull away from a loaded removal van, now that depressing, :(

Its a love hate relationship with my car, i love it just cant stand it being so slow, 45BHP is nowhere near enough.

That's what I was like with my old one, exactly the same as yours. In the end I got a 1.6 sport engine for it and never looked back tbh. The only downside was the petrol costs.
