    Great work Jonny!

    I saw Precious on Friday, and you'll be pleased to know she is being taken care of

    That's nice to know really glad she went to a good home

    I won't be trying to get gracey up to the same standard as precious as that would require a full respray.... I've been thinking about it but keep telling myself not to.

    Progress. Hopefully having 4 tyres with tread that can hold pressure will allow me to get her moving. Almost finished the external bodywork clean but a bit disappointed as the paintwork isn't all that and there is not much that can be done sort of a fully bare shell respray.

    I went with Conti PremiumContact5s in the end at 70 quid a corner, bought from Asda.




    Rear wiper sorted too. Painted the arm and fitted a new blade. Same planned for the front.

    Hmm. I edited my post just after I put it up but the changes seemed to have got lost. Let me try again.

    How's that ?

    I might try for better photos next time too. My phone isn't really a camera.

    Wiper arms should be black. Clean the paint off and they are bright shiny silver. Or just wait for the paint to fall off.

    Getting there. Most of the suspension is past its best. Front tension rod bushes are completely shot but I have most of the arms. Just need decent shocks.

    Looks great - really reminds me of my first S13 only far less shit

    Never understood people retrofitting flat blade wipers though, looks a bit weird IMO, I prefer to keep things *ahem* period

    I did contemplate this very point.

    I don't understand why it is perfectly acceptable to fit spacers, chromed aftermarket wheels, non-standard spoilers, folding mirrors etc. but using wipers that work is a social faux pas
    Its a 30 and 5 minute correction if the new owner doesn't like it.

    That's the tricky bit. It has to be sold to the right person not to the highest bidder.

    Basically, someone that wants it as a project not for a project
