Finally after a long time of wanting for a MK2 I finally have one!

It's a capri green 1.6 Driver (pics should be below!)

I got it for a very good price but it needed work but luckily thanks to euro car parts and a very good friend it hasn't cost me much at all to get it mechanically solid!

It's had new coilovers, new wishbones, bearings + brakes all round, fuel lines properly sorted and a few other bits!


It's got it's MOT tomorrow so hopefully it'll pass and we can get it on the road!

Cheers!

(sorry about iPhone pics!)

Here she is on the night we first picked up, a sorry state!

A lot further along with new brakes and coilies!

And here she is now looking pretty standard before the MOT (only at that height so the MOT station don't have a field day)

Unfortunatly the MOT's gotta be cancelled and done some point next week as the handbrake's been playing up so we've now got some cables on order!

Finally, it's MOT'd and on the road!

My mate took it for MOT saturday morning then we nipped down to the post office to get it taxed.

First thing was to get the coilies wound down and then give it a proper clean.

Pics!

Just normal bits really, a decent set of steelies would be good and i can't really justify spending out for a new set as it'd only be a temp thing as the wheels on it now barely made it through MOT! bumpers etc etc.

Cheers mate! It's getting there! Slowly...

Just need to stop wasting money and get all body imperfections sorted and get some bigger wheels as I can't even get in my driveaway at the moment without hitting the floor badly Cry
