thought i would start my own project thread and get afew tips on the way, unfortunatly i don't have any photos anymore of the car when i first bought it but im the third owner  of this 93 1.2 8v ls, it was completely standard when i got it just over a year ago.1of the earliest pics i have,first just got a cheap set of alloys onto it and bought 50mm spax lowering springs,then bought buckets seats, the 2nd pair.went back to the steelies as sold the alloys, found cesaros at the right price.got a mate of mine to refurbish them in gloss blackgot windows tinted and then tyres finally put on the cesaros.also spray tinted the rear lights bt not keen on them so they will be going soon.cleaned it the other day and got afew photos,just saving for the next few mods at the moment.
