tongue I have took it apart!
There are 9 less seats in it than when I got it!

Im a fan of my impyitis, I'd never want to be cured! If I see somthing thats bargainous I have to buy it - if I get bored or see somthing else it has to go - me and olly were discussing this yesterday, its the 'process' thats enjoyable - if that makes sense...! Far too many good (and bad) cars out there to stick with one forever!!!

3.5 fresh you tart!
Got the rear wash/wipe working, need to find or make a washer bottle top for it though.
Headliner was non existant, just loads of yellow foam with hand prints in it. Stripped most of this off now bar a few stubborn bits, ready for new, removed most of the interior side panels/trim for recovering, and slapped some chequered floor tiles in for now to tidy it up a bit.

I know the exhaust is going, the back brakes are delaminating I'd say, I've had to put 2 tyres on it so far, not the end of the world...
Need new seatbelts up front, as they are frayed.

I am in saving mode so have to be mindful not spunking money on it just for looks, if it stays ugly for a year so be it Very Happy


try cleaning up the seat belts with a lighter it melts the fuzz away quite well

A little update...

The gearstick snapped off while I was driving, which was fun...



So I replaced this lot while I put the new lever in...



All now pretty slick.

I bought some wheels off griff, and played about with them a bit, they are nearly finished, one left to go...



Finished doing the headlining and all the fibreglass panels that fit round the edges, couple bits to tidy/clean up, but happy for a budget effort, its presentable, but not professional!









And the other night, I won these on ebay for 99p! A pair of nice front seats from a Honda of some breed, civic or accord. A chap imported a big ol american truck, and they were fitted instead of the bench seat that should've been there, so he just wanted rid. Will be better than the shite thats in there at the mo.

roof liner looks good, is that a rim protector on the wheels or paint.

Cheers! Headliners are always bastards. There is a layer of seperate foam insulation beneath it as well, two layers. Its SO much quieter now, I can hear the radio!!!

The lips of the rims are painted freehand, rim protectors are gash, wouldn't use em! Will have to get a new fitting machine though, coz I don't trust anyone else not to fuck em putting tyres on.

The seats will look better once ive cleaned them, it'll take me months to get round to fitting them though... Very Happy

Cheers. Everything is always for sale at the right price! I was curious, but no one was biting on vzi, so im going to finish it and put it on for more I think. People are too suspicious of cheaper priced things!!! Cash would be handy at the mo.
