G-Max Suspenion kit, £450

RedStuff front pads, £60

New Windscreen (I cracked mine being a tit) £150

New sunroof = £300

Rear Suspension Turrets removed and plated = I'm working free of charge for 3 weeks

All rust eradicated = £01010190383880498

Brake, Clutch, PAS fluids = £50

Refurbed rims and new tyres = £400

Silicone hose for intake = £15

That's about it tbh, should have all that and fitted by september. There is so much stuff I already have stored away though lol :P

TOTAL: £1425 roughly. I don't know where the hell I get this money from...seriously.

So far including the car itself I have spent £4000. Great, I have a rusted crap heap that has no doors, windows, roof panels and it doesn't move. Awesome.

Can't think of anything I'd rather do more though, I haven't regretted a minute of it. :)

hah, nice price for the rust!

im shocked at how much alot of the parts cost really, iv just sold my vauxhall astra and parts were next to nothing for that, i paid £18 for lowering springs on ebay, £18!! i could get coilovers for £90, now im looking at £90 for a 30mm drop on just springs :(

iv done a similar thing with a motorbike, i bought it without pannels as a non runner for £500 (stupidly) and spent a fortune on it, but with very little to show! every part i needed had to be imported from france and cost a fortune, but i dont regret one minute of it, so much fun to work on and taught me plenty.

(also have a garage full of tools to play about with my car now! hah)

That's what it's all about mate. It doesn't matter what it costs you. When I fired the engine back up for the first time, Oil pissed everywhere, the sump was leaking, the radiator was leaking, the cam covers rattled because I needed them loose and the exhaust manifold billowed smoke into my face when using a strobe. But it was all totally worth it.

The car itself cost me £495 when I was 14, a year on and I have spent £3500 just in parts lol.

so your only 15/16 now?!

i was 16 when i finished the motorbike (yamaha tzr 50) and now know 2 stroke engines inside out!

i did make a very VERY foolish mistake once... (because i thought i knew it all..) it was winter and i didnt want to used plain water as engine coolant, so i thought ahhhh al just pop in some screen wash, it has the anti-freeze stuff inside... BAD BAD BADDD Idea... all the stuff in the screen wash to clean it etc.. corroded my gaskets & seals making all the water leak out into the Oil, overheating the top end making the engine seize :(

Why a pannel filter and not a decent induction kit?

Decent induction kit £150, K&N pannel filter £40 besides induction kits arnt the best as they usualy end up sucking in hot air from the engine bay and it is only a 1.4 afterall.

Cool shot coolant additive

Ground earth system(hks)
