Car Type / UsageRoad car
Engine & Gearboxoriginal standard engine now scrapped due to con rod punching through the block, mi16 now purchased and soon to be rebuilt. Will use my original be1 box.
Suspension & SteeringRear beam now rebuilt, I impulsed bought some rear Gaz shocks from eBay which I may swap out for oe at a later date. Poly powerflex wishbone bushes and front ARB fitted. May lower an inch at max.
BrakesCurrently looking into best setup for mi16. Perhaps gti6 front calipers and standard rears.
Wheels & TyresStandard 1.9's, Toyo Proxes tyres
Bodywork & ExteriorContradictory to the change in the engine, brakes and suspension but I want to keep the body work and exterior completely standard as there is nothing that can make it look any better imo.
Interior & ICESame as the exterior plan to keep completely standard except for the head unit and speakers.
Comments & PlansHave rebuilt rear beam, next is front sub frame, suspension and engine bay then remove and clean/ inspect interior and refit.... Look into leaky sun roof before finally getting around to rebuilding and fitting the mi16.
