    Didn’t this website used to be concerned with the Nissan 200sx and similar??? These days it seems to be all about recipes and growing vegetables.

    Get rid of it. Sounds like a waste of time & money for something so rough and kinda pointless.

    A pal of mine has a nice clean one that he’s supercharged with a charger from a Merc SLK. It’s a...

    I used to have a small 6x4 metal shed in my garden and it was pretty flimsy. Worst thing I remember was the banging noises when it’s windy. Worth taking into account before you buy.

    Ok smashing, thanks. Basically you can’t pick one up at all for less than about £4500 with high mileage etc, so with a bit of luck if the worst was to happen I’d get my money back.

    The best/only way is to get it lacquered. Then just keep it polished and waxed the same as you would the rest of the car. My best guess is most carbon parts just have cheap crap lacquer on them,...
