Pic of my mine and my cousin's track day and hillclimb car:

Old Car: my cousins old 306, one of the first moddified cars i worked on:

escort looks nice, my mates got a mk 4 xr3i, to go with his mk1 and mk2 xr2's and xr4x4, alright for some.

any more details on it? ie engine spec, suspension etc. his is standard at the moment, mk2 xr2 is modified though, different carb, kent cam, head work, full ashley system etc, think it made 98bhp at the wheels last time it was on the RR, not bad especially when you consider the bottom end is all original.

The Scrappy

Well i went down the scrappy today just to pick up a new rear light as some one had let their trolly hit my car and cracked the lense...



and i came away with more than i had hoped for ....

i got a:
New rear light
2 Front foglights
an indicator to practice de-globeing
GTi front and rear strutbrace



all for £25

what a bargin.

here is a quick pic of my car... before i start working on it... please remember it has been sitting there for about 5 months now... and hasnt been touched... put a battery jumper pack on it and it started on the first turn...



ive got new wheels sitting in the boot, red ally wheel nuts and new spigot rings, wind deflectors and the strutbraces to fit.



but there is one thing i hope you guys would be able to help me out with.... and that is i need the drivers side silver plastic cover that covers the screws holding the fog lights in place... can any one help.


much aprecieated..

Gees for that little slp of plasic....

il look ot for a set for you as well.
 
latest updates

here are a few pics of my car before i start adding my newly aquired upgrades.







and here is a decent shot of the cabriolet just cleaned it... im waiting to put the RS1600 side skirts on

 
yer i know .... havent fitted them yet... im waiting for spigot rings and wind deflectors then its time to start work on her.

trying to get hold a new back box.. just sent JClark a PM asking about his old twin pipe.
 
updates

Now got the new wheels on... looks alot better than the standards... plus got new rubber so now legal..

i think that the red nuts set it of nicely... the only bad bit is that the wheel centres dont fit on when the wheels ar on the car.. need to get some spacers...




 
Right....

i have bought an exhaust off of Simcard (thanks) so ive been cleaning that up and de rusting it...
i have also got hold of an Eco-Tek valve off of Curtis (Thanks) so that will be fitted after MOT...
also got a rubber chin spoiler... bit different... got it off of a Vectra SRi 150 almost perfect fit just a little bit of trimming on the arches...
im also spraying up a rocker cover to replace the one thats on the almera going black with red writing...


so got lots of stuff happening at the moment.. should look good when im done!!

pics up asap
