Posted something in General Car Chat but I should be fixing problems before next year so I'd say its a project !

Bought this wee gem today and I'm looking forward to start driving it next year !

It's a 1.2 Flair Injection..

-Lowered 35mm
-Speedlines
-It's got a 'Tiger' backbox (Never heard of it :lol

Bad bits:
- Inner Wings
- Drivers arch
- Tiny bit under rubber seal on the boot
- Small Puddle of Water/Condensation on the boot floor

Soon as I got it home I took 2 pics basically to show it off !




Well some more pictures of it.












Rust will be getting treated soon

It wouldn't be a Nova if you didn't have to do battle with rust in the engine bay and rear arches lol! Lots of potential though. Exterior wise it just needs a nice big suspension drop.

Well I started to strip bits off the car to see what it was like and I'm suprised. It's not as bad as I thought so pleased with that!

Was out most of the day so started late then within half an hour it had started to rain so went and got a cover for it

Some photos:

Only hole I found...


Other side:


Battery Tray - Poked at it for a while and nothing went through...


Random Photo:


Clean:


Got the cover on: Now has string holding it on incase the wind decides to be a dick.


Next to my dad's beast:


Comments welcome, cheers.

Not yet Nath, lay under it and it looks like an new-ish exhaust! Bumpers and Wings of next though.

I found the front inner arches were shot to bits on mine (pictures in my thread) I did the repairs myself at work, would be pretty costly if you was to pay to have it done.. Hope it's all solid though
