Re: 2.0 TS rot hunt/project mot. + more.. more.
Cant believe I just went through 70 pages to see how the dashboard is removed !
Really inspiring !
Top Job all the way
Only 2 comments I have on the whole thread/project :
1 - I would get a lower set of rear springs and lower the front torsion bars as well
2 - I would find a VELOCE or EVO kit for it
But I suppose, thats just a matter of taste
I see its been quite a while since you finished it. I hope you are driving it right now. How does it feel ?
Super delayed response by 3 years ..
I have been driving it ever since
It feels good, however there are a few things that have been ruining the experience. I either have some bad summer tires or rims, or other thing going on that makes the car shake at certain speeds.Update
There has been no major rust issues since, or big MOT issues, only that I had to make a jacking point (kinda skipped that before, was tired), brake discs, and the MOT guy didn't like the 28mm front antiroll bar.
1# I drove up into another car at slow speed which has knackered my front bumper a bit
2# I turned into a granit post in town, which made a dent in front door.. needs fixing..
3# The rivets i used for the rear wheel arch were too small apperently.. had to stop and pick one up front road one day, before some drove over it
4# The prophaft mounts and donuts have all been changed, a thing I knew was coming.
5# The power steering i made into manual by pumping it full of grease, i have reverted to powersteering. TOO heavy.
6# The fancy boot DIY I haven't used at all, it is bare..
7# The modifications to the intake I have removed.
.. And few things
