New car

Yo guys, sold my Escort 2 months ago and bought this last thursday, tis an '89 SRi mk2 :drool: , has a few nice mods GTE skirts , GSi vents (made properly)

 

Its a nice car but the only bad things right now is that there's no power steering so parking is a bit of a workout, needs a drivers side window motor and the wheels are quite bent or unbalanced as anything over 50 and your bones get a good shaking!! :pancake:

 

So far I've only taken of the grile it came with (thought it was a bit tacky and fitted a badge to the bonnet, going to put my 17" Stealths on it when I get tires but I think I'll fit cav slabs for the time being.

 

Future plans include a 5 stud conversion with V6 brakes so I can fit Cav Turbo wheels and a redtop or a 130seh.

 

Here it is with the previous grille:

It's a 1.8 8v , and yes it has got the Recaros, the tartan ones 8) 8) 8)

 

Yes , this is the shape that came with a digi dash but mine lacks it as it was only the GTE model that had that :( , possible future mod for me though

 

I'm picking up a set of Cavalier slabs up tommorow after work and in two minds whether to paint them white or silver, its going down 60mm aswell very soon :))

Cool , might pester you about a digi dash at some point but i'm not interested in a GTE kit as I prefer the SRi's , don't see them as often.
