    Well ive finally made some money and got my arse off the ground,

    Bought a fresh starting point, still carrying on with my 24v xr4i though so thats not forgotten about

    Its pretty much sorted as it is, Changed my look on this one tho, Main plan is to abuse the standard 2.8 it has in it until it dies then stick in a sr20det from a crash damaged 14 :)

    Snapped this up on ebay about a month or two ago,

    Its pretty much rust free and was imported a short while ago from Germany, hence why its left hand drive,

    Its fully caged,
    Bucket seats,
    Braided lines,
    etc etc, yawn,,,

    Some pics for now,

    Booking up teesside for 10th december, first time using left hand drive so we shall see how it goes then :)

    Looks good, pubes!

    Left hand drive is motorsport as fuck, nice lol. Is it going to be on the road or just track?

    Its staying LHD im afraid guys :) just for added coolness...

    Im putting my through dash cage in this week tho and fitting a new windscreen since i had a accident with a certain bonnet coming up and smashing shit out of mine and the roof :p

    Plan for now is to attend as many trackdays at teesside as my shitty engine will cope with, rip it out and plant a sr20 in there, Rob if you fancy a project with me id pay cash,tea, kindless.....etc etc lol

    Oh and about the Bottger wheels rob, you have any idea on value? all minty mint!...one of the reasons i bought the car

    What you after? I'm having a clear out. From free to cheap.

    Interesting to do an sr swap.

    I'm just digging through my garage at the moment. Stripped my old BOA, heads and covers left.
    Lots of brakes, Lsd's, 5 stud hubs, And more I ain't got to yet.

    interested in brakes?...what you got??

    If your interested in doing a sr conversion with me just let me know,

    Ive got 90% of the parts i need for this car, just need Engine and box really and whatever else needs fabricating up...

    Rob just shoot me a pm or text on what sort of price you would be after for doing the work and we can sort something out

    Been collecting parts for this atm

    Aquired so far:

    New Hydro wand
    Braided brake lines all round
    Braided fuel lines all through
    Cosworth 4 pot front brakes

    but the main one im hoping to get this weekend is a proven 320bhp sr20 which has thrown a big end shell....I will find out soon if its a go :)

    Ive welded the sunroof up and smoothed it off, Just awaiting delivery of carbon wrap so i can wrap the roof up in it :)

    Hoping to get more done over winter if i can get it indoors somewhere
