Right. So now I'm a member I thought I would stick up some pics and the progress over the last few months.
Firstly a bit of background. Bought the car June 2009 and it had in the region of 89k on the clocks. Completely standard, near enough rust free, fsh, only a couple of owners. Couple of niggly problems but nothing major.
The car now only has 16 more miles on it since when I bought it, and that was the drive home. Which my dad very kindly did as I wasnt insured. So over the last 14 months I have never driven the car
So June 2009:
Spent the car polishing and waxing it, as I do with any car
So from there I had been reading on here for a few months and the first "mod" I wanted to do is sort out the handling. So que lots of thread reading about Coilovers, ARB's, Diffs, Polybushes and Adjustable Arms. Funnily this little lot then arrived in the post:
Also sourced me a subframe and energy polybushes. This was promptly sent to the powder coaters:
I decieded that I should start stripping down the rear end. Drop the subframe and replace everything.
