Minor update to this! Got round to a job I've been meaning to do in a while...spraying the shitty rusty looking drum brakes matt black! Also sprayed one of the window trims as the paint had worn off part of it. Want to do the wiper arms and the roof rails next.

Thanks lad, hope to have some proper updates for it once I finish up college in a few weeks! Decided to break the saloon one I bought last year so I have a few bits to swap over from that. Also on the look out for a fx-gt bumper! The wagons are hard enough to come by now, I always keep an eye on donedeal just to see what's out there but there's been none on it in the last while. If I see any I'll post them up for ye!

Nope it's a Jap one, bought cheap with no plans for it so I decided to break it and keep a few parts for the wagon!

There's not many extras on it as it was only a basic enough spec car! It does have the electrically adjustable mirrors, molded mud guards, an armrest (brown), jap boot lock, and clocks in km's...any of those any good to you?!

Edit: Just remembered the crotch vent is there too, a rare extra!

would you believe I ended up buying a bootlock from Canada about 2 months ago, from a member on TOC-Irl who was living there I'm afraid I have the mud guards and armrest does it by any chance have the C grille/badge? How much for the vent PM if you like

Not been on here in ages! Not much has happened with the car, got a concussion in a bike crash so had to rest up the last couple of months. Have a set of AE111 BZ-G Levin seats to collect to go into it, also sourced an FX-GT bumper which I should have by the end of the week. Got a Trust gearknob for it too, as I was never too fond of the original.



Hope to add a Levin steering wheel & rear arb, new rear shocks, and a set of 50mm lowering springs soon. Thanks for looking!

Time for a little update, got some nice stuff for the wagon over the last while!
Picked up an FX-GT bumper, only sprayed in primer for now til funds allow for some proper bodywork to happen!



After that I got a set of pre-facelift AE111 Trueno seats, great upgrade, much better seat than what was in the car before!



Next up was a part I thought I'd never get, a BZ Touring grille! (Its former owner is on here!) Love the look of it, really transforms the front end



Last weekend a few bits arrived...lowering springs, front strut brace and a set of FX-GT grey clocks. FX clocks won't work, wagon has 4 plugs and there's only 3 sockets on the back of the clocks, sickened!

Got the front springs in and in the process found that the shocks are banjaxed, so they'll be changed soon.
Putting the rears in tonight along with a BZR Levin arb, new drop links, and new arb bushings.



Front arch gap is gone from 4 fingers to 1 Razz The boat-like handling has been massively reduced, she's much more stable now. She also got fresh filters, oil, and spark plugs last week.

In the next while I'd like to do a rear disc brake conversion, find a good Levin steering wheel, have a new exhaust made up, and get a light tint put on the back windows. Thanks for reading!

Don't have the bumper anymore, but I do have the grille that's on it in the 3rd photo on the first page of the thread if that's any good to you? Or is it the c-grille you're after? I think there's an Irish one for breaking in a scrapyard up in Cavan, cousin of mine spotted it not too long ago! I can find out more if that's any use to you.

Here's a shitty phone photo of how she's sitting at the moment:



Tracking needs to be done as she's pulling to the left since the springs were fitted! Front lip of some kind is next on the list, maybe a DC2 one; rear disc conversion then, and in time twin pots up front and a set of 15 inch wheels to fit them under...with lower offset too to fill the arches a bit better!
