My Work Horse


Recommended Posts

Just after Christmas, i decided to take my mini off the road and restore her, so needed a run about. By chance someone i know was getting a new car and was just gonna px their S plate 1.6 lx escort that they've had since new so i said ill take it off ya hands for a few hundred quid, anyhow, it needed couple of lower arms and new exhaust so he gave it me. After running on 5 spoke wheel trims for about 5 weeks i found these little beautys for a bargain on flea bay. Ill be lowering her and repainting her in the next few weeks along with repainting the alloys too.

How she looked on the trims :pancake:


Without trims


As of last night: 17inch Momo Arrows, with New Pirelli PZero 225/35 tyres on



Not bad for a motor thats cost me:

Exhaust system £35

Lower Arms £30

Wheels & Tyres £105 ( :drunk: )

Paint coming soon free lol
