PostSubject: more retro than classic   Fri Sep 23, 2011 10:37 am

i love vw's but i fancied a retro jap motor for a change so after selling the golf i found this



now i know it's not the coolest car in the world but i believe with the right treatment you can make any car into a really cool ride and i love a challenge lol! . it's done 55000 miles from new and it's been slightly modified with 13" corsa wheels, nissan cherry turbo steering wheel and 35mm lowered h&R suspension although all the original standard parts came with it as well + a spare engine with only 50000 miles on it. i got all this retro lovelyness (complete with brown interior) for just £300 Wink . i love p slot wheels so will be putting them on this after a few modifictions



now i only lower cars in inches so 35mm will never do Rolling Eyes so i will also be lowering it another 2-3" as well.

i got 5 mins to spend on the micra today so i thought i'd get the p slot wheels on, i had to enlarge the center bore first but i think they suit the car quite well



i still need to space the rear wheels out 10-20mm and lower it about 3-4" to get them sitting right in the arches, hopefully get it lowered by the end of the week
