    Couple more pics with the bbs's on, still a few trims bits and no plates to fit/sort, but she's getting there, sticking with a clean oem look! Subtles the way forward for this one!

    what did you use to make the seats fit?? They're the ones from the rs turbo aren't they? I've got some trimmed in leather but need to fabricate a sub frame.

    Well done boyo, looks great. I arnt far behind though! Thinks mines gonna be a little smoother and black!

    Yours is rather low considering theres no arch work - how many coils?

    Yeah they're rst recaro's, they're mounted i believe, on cobra subframes, the old ford runners were unbolted and with a little modding the recaro's basically bolted straight through them!

    Sam : arches are still boggo and lipped, its sat on -70mm springs, but its crying out for coilovers, so i'll be sorting that at some point over winter!

    Cleaned and half polished!

    Back end looks to sit higher at the drivers side but thats due to my rather wonky/pissed driveway!

    Not much has been done to the valver of late but an engine swaps in the pipeline, so it'l be getting half pulled to bits again, a bit of finishing on the paint side, decent coliovers, getting hidden tdi tailpipes/flushed valance and a few odds and ends to finish it off!
    Hopefully back out playing for show season! Meanwhile i'm rolling in pierre my 205 diesel (exotica!)!! Laughing
