We purchased this car in December 2014 and it sat in a garage until early this year where it was prepped ready to show over in Belfast last week at Dubshed 16. 

The car itself is a basic model sporting a 1600cc powerhouse with 22k miles from new. It was in very good original condition but we decided to change a few parts!!! The previous keeper also a member on here brought the car back to life then looked after it until we got it.

So here it is.......

It came with a lot of history that I'll not bore you with!?! It was a real tidy original car so only needed a few tweaks..........

So with all the bits n bobs purchased just had to set about them, I polished the wheels up and Del at Optimus trimmed the seats. We managed to source the original materials from Germany to match!

Things were coming together so it was off to Gerry at Performancetec to fit suspension do alignment and fit the wheels......

Next it was time to remove the ghastly coach lines someone had fitted, unfortunately they were hiding a small area that had been painted on the rear door!!!!

So that was the car all ready it just needed a final lick from Craig Steel at Anonymous detailing, here is how it looked finished!!!!.....

So it was all ready for showing at Dubshed 16! We got a great spot on the GTINI stand right in front of the main stage........

It picked up a wee win too, BEST MK1/MK2.........

So that's it done and dusted, back in the garage. Probably going to sell it on and let someone else enjoy it for what it is!
