Its nothing special but im pleased with how its looking so far .

This is how it looked when i got it:



and this is how it looks so far:




so far ive fitted new alloys that actually fit, a gsi kit, colour coded door handles, lowered on 40mm nova springs, semi smoothed boot, bucket seats and stripped out the rear interior and door cards.

Plans i have are too get smoked rear lights, tidy up the bodywork,lower the rear more and maybe remove the sri stripe + a few other things

Looks so much better in real life, the rear lights suite it, i think the pic make it look abit poo.
Also getting rid of the bumper strips was a good improvement to it me thinks.

Heres a few pics of what ive been up to recently on the car:

Side strips removed as some of you have seen at the last meet:



I then decided i didnt like the clear rears so i changed back to standards, the standards also seem to fit better.



Now i have started on the inside (thanks to broster for the tips lol ) ive removed the tar matting out of the back cleaned all the floor and painted it, just needs a bit of tidying up.



next on the list is to spray the inside panels, doors and roof in glacier white and also remove the carpet and spray the floor upto the footwells in black and have checker plating in the front. then more work on the outside of the car.

i have just a few things to do to the outside of the car, painting calipers and drums and tidying up the bodywork (still got excess tigerseal from when i did the sideskirts )

I have decided to tune the engine now, mainly becuase i got a good deal on some second hand parts. for 80 pounds i have a enlarged throttle body and inlet plenum, a sportex 4-1 manifold and a remapped ecu and spare chip. to finish the setup off i will need to buy the sportex decat section and possibly a fse boost thingy. iv'e been told my car should be running around 95-100 BHP.
