redtop engine pics on page 3

latest update page 4 (ooh dear underbody rust to deal with)

Ok, i know its not a C but thought id show you anyway

bought for the tidy sum of £150 from one of the fitters at work no tax or mot but off the road (mate brought it in on lowloader), we have a L reg 1.4 ls model, 126k on the clock but new clutch and cambelt fitted recently and runs sweet as a nut surprisingly lol, so here i have a candidate for my budget track toy

here's what it looked like when i first got it today, looks alot better in the pics, few dents here and there and a bit of surface rust but altogether very solid




engine bay has quite a bit of surface rust and the battery is knackered but its nothing i cant take care of


of course 2 seconds later i had a bit of spare lunchtime left so tore into the shed, mouldy back seats and half of the trim gone, more to rip out tomorrow



after a tidy up of the rust re-locate the battery in the boot and respray in white

future plans:
C20XE, poss carbs or tb's in the future
brake upgrade 2.0ltr or V6 (havent decided)with performance discs
decent suspension setup, top mounts and adjustable dampers for the future
roll cage (poss make my own)

i'll keep you guys updated :doublethumbs:

That's got potential.
Should be good!

Did a photoshop with a couple of cheap/easy mods done and a respray.

thats near enough what i want the outside to look like (plus with 16" black alloys -60mm and a white gsi spoiler)
