Hey Everyone,
Thought I would put up a few pics of the new saloon, it's pretty tidy for the £400 I paid for it.
Owned previously by an elderly lady who used to cover all for 1500 miles a year and owned it since 2007.
Interior is mint but the exterior could use with a little TLC, but I'll let the pics do the talking.

Holy wheel arch gap batman!

One of the first jobs I did was crack the stock radio open and wire in an Aux socket, I like the retro look of the stock radio but wanted to be able to listen to my own music!

Very nice, good price too, love the AUX in the stock radio.
(I changed it to links, pics were huge)

One of the first jobs to do was to get the car on coilovers and reduce the cavernous wheel gap. I ran the car lowered with the stock steel wheels for a little while but knew that 13" steels couldn't last forever.

So after searching ebay and the internet for some decent wheels which I could afford, I settled on some RSL cults in 15x7.5 from ebay and got a set of 185/55R15 toyo proxes (Halfords Autocentre was actually the cheapest place to buy the tyres and get them fitted).

The car was sitting pretty good at this point, although I would have probably liked to go a little lower but the cheap coilovers I bought was maxed out at this ride height... for now.
