Hey fella, nice car, I got one too.

TBH, I'm loving the auto, is it really worth changing to manual? I guess it would if your looking to change to a B series in the future.

yeah its in good condition overall,does sometime take ages to start up though but maybe due it being parked up for so long? im not sure..yeah im loving the auto to but for some reason its not very responsive like my previous auto that i had,i was thinking of doing putting a B in it at a later stage but at the same time i dont mind driving a Manual GL to..it does need quiet abit of tlc the door doors need replacing,as one has alot of lacquer peel and the other has a den at the bottom,the tailgates slightly faded and the rear bumper n rear filler bar have turned PINK! but il have all that sorted,first on the list will be to give the engine bay a clean until its sparkling RED

had a go at stripping out the rear seats and removing all the sound deadening that was there in the back and thought as im removing it i'd spray the inside a differant colour..something that would stand out..at the moment all iv done is give it a rough coat of primer
Image
Image
Image
Image
as i was waiting for the primer to dry i thought id change my door cards due to the old ones having some sort of sticky residiue on them and was a pain to remove
