Hi would just like to show people my 3g daily driver, there dont seem to be many 3gs left in the uk, i only got this car because i was sick of rusty ef/eg/ek/dc2s sounds daft, the car came in my workplace sure for certain death, scrap yard.
its only done 20k , 1.3 auto, original paint,plates, tax disc holder, unused tool kit and has less rust than my mates 53 plate ep3. i drove the car just 49 miles before i decided that it needed a manual box, fuel injection.
i drove to my friends workshop and gave the car a dose of 2 gallons of waxoil and came up with a plan.

using hasport mounts, they fit amazing, using a hydro box, a shortened ns shaft, waited ages for the mounts, i think there made to order. the cars using a custom loom made by yours truly and a p28 with a emulator, still a little of the wiring to finish, i am on the lookout for a set of gt clocks.
got the wheels for nowt they were fitted to a polo that came in work as scrap, there very light, dont know the make

im from carlisle, the great rainy city, i work a douglas auto salvage, its great but no 3gs, just got a 4dr sedan ef in though, have had to buy a spares car from manchester, its got a rev counter hooray.
Been busy time with my car, got all the wiring sorted, cam timming, exhaust made, took the old thing drag racing, 14.9@93mph, with pretty consistent times, nothing slower than a 15.2, but have learned the std supension is S*!t for fast launches
