Much better now it had the bra off! One thing I'd loose is the strap, but good work!!!

What's with gaps around headlight and right fog lamp?

So ive not updated in months so think its time I did

first thing I have sourced a Gsi interior with steering wheels door cars






then a set of sport clocks came up at the right money with same mileage as my original once



then I took the doorstrips off for a cleaner look

During



after



then I stopped and started to think what was next to have a Gsi with euro features so a lot of searching sites and google images was done and I went for

show cage



and have these on order

Dare DR RS finished in gloss red with polished lip



also got a rear strutbrace yet to be fitted and sorted a bootbuild out





and some of how it is now





will keep you all updated when I have the Red DR RS alloys on ext

1.4 X14SZ? Good little engines, bulletproof.

Looking forward to seeing the wheels fitted, lose the massive gay stickers though.

Oh god I feel for you. I had the X14SZ and it wasn't particularly fast but at least it was a really solid engine, the 1.2 must be painful.
