Well this all started in March 2007 when had some stuff happen in life and needed something to take my mind off things, big mistake! lol

Stage 1

Had bought the car 2 years before properly posting on the site and had so far fitted bucket seats, headunit, amp and sub. Simple stuff but kept me happy.









Debadged with proper clean and camera







Then with National Day 07 set as a target (which then became PVS after National Day didn’t happen) the real work started.

Wheels were ordered which took a month to come through but were worth the wait.



While waiting for the wheels to come through I had ordered a few other parts.

FK coilovers and Angel Eye headlights fitted.







Then with wheels fitted as well.





RaidHP strut brace.



Then one Saturday at work I had a crazy idea at work and ended up driving home with





Which with a bit of work became







Wasn’t the prettiest and so with some spare time (and David)



Then my harnesses turned up.









At a bluewater meet





Finally the last piece of the puzzle, Piper 3.5” inward rolled backbox.







Finally PVS 07 came round, and after a 7 hour cleaning session











And after driving across the camp site with Mart :lol:



Shortly after the show though the car was broken into and the audio and lots of other things stolen (hopefully paying the the b*stards overdose:D)

So with limo tints on the rear 3 later

Then to finish off the handling on my car, an adjustable Whiteline rear anti-roll bar (would suggest to anyone)



Then invested in a machine polisher.







Then all that was left was a few finishing touches.
White dash conversion and Az’s MFD light board.





Matt black pillars and centre console.









Eyebrows



Colour coded spoiler and boot handle



Richbrook steering wheel.



And a 400 mile round trip for Steinmetz front grille :D



There are a few bits that happened like Sri lower grille and HIDs that cant remember when happened but oh well :lol:

Well that was everything done I wanted for stage one so was time for a photoshoot.

I had a very crazy moment back in January 08 and spent a grand on a body kit.
The car has been off the road now since May 08 having a “little” make over lol

Few pics before it all began







The body kit that I had aquired (although can’t find pics of rear bumper :?)








mmm width


mmm kevlar

Then the fun began :D





































Trial fitting the kit.















After this realised it went over the fuel flap so



Then realised that to go low enough at the rear there was going to have to be a little work done.

After the initial cuts had been made something arrived :)











After some cutting and welding later and had











Of course can’t have a rally replica without





And welded in







It was then in storage for a while but a few shots in the time.





Rear brakes painted and plumbed in only a year after fitting



One of the next things to tackle was the wiring as some needed removing and other bits rerouting.





To do it properly though meant going from



to



With all wiring accessible it ended up as







And when it gets to see daylight





Still quite a bit to do but once 2 bits are sorted it will be quite simple and then just dependent on money to get it finished.
