Hi guys, Well thought I'd share my project on here, I'll cut it bait short been going for 2 years and still plenty to do, here's when got it chavved up!


One first thing was got gsi kit and fitted nova gsi alloys

Then I had my roof done gloss black

I then stripped inside, fitted roll cage and flocked dash, but since have returned to a full interior


Then this happend, but repaired it n stuck with the car

Then bought cav slabs, refurbed them and sprayed gloss black n fitted new tyres

Next bought the xe from a friend

Fully stripped down then painted block


Rebuilt bottom with new rings, bearing, gaskets, seals etc..

Head rebuilt replacing everything also

Bolted down head then fitted all covers new belt etc...


Fully built up on stand

Then chopped on bent front from previous crash, new fitted and bay sprayed black


This is engine as it stands today

Most recent pic of car

Latest things fitted digi dash n got some rs turbo seats for it!


And went on dyno at USC, made 147bhp, but graph curves are good n pulls smooth so am happy

Thanks for looking, hope people like and maybe attend some show on here in future

Yeah really like them, would love mine to be retrimmed like that! Want half leather anyway, with some kinda retro looking cloth haha! Any ideas how much seat retrims cost?

No idea matey,something I haven't really looked into. I went down the bucket seat route.

I'm sure someone will know a rough idea.

I was going to go down bucket route as I had stripped interior cage etc.. but put it all back in as I found in uncomfty! Are buckets comfy? I'd imagine them not to be, but I've never sat in any really....

Fitted one my fiesta rs turbo seats today! Managed to find a way of fitting them to standard corsa subframes without them being to high, took a lot of head scratching thou n shed some blood, but I think they fit nicely on standard frames so am happy
