Yeah, I definitely want to get some sort of livery on it, I've got a few ideas at the moment.

I started to strip the car down last night, hoping to prep for paint soon. Front bumper off, Headlights, Door mirrors...



Back bumper, Tail lights...



Haven't got a shot of the engine bay up yet so...



Next we're gonna get a new battery on it, the current one is so dead it's not even funny, then hopefully get it running better. I'm gonna clean up the interior as well, give it a proper wash out and maybe rattle can the floor / footwells white - depending on how well it cleans up

You're quick to get to work!

Any change in colour? Or are you going to stick with white?

Yeah going to keep it white, nice and simple. Haven't done much to the car over xmas - there's an engine being rebuilt in the workshop so I can't start rubbing the car down yet :(

I pulled some more bits off it a few weeks ago - wings, bonnet scoop, side skirts, rear plate fascia and the spoiler

Bit of a better view of the coilovers, haven't had a proper look at them yet, anybody now what make they are? My guess would be Gaz

Some of the old scrutineering stickers still on the cage B)

The Harry Hockley Miras came with Bilstein coilovers, if I remember correctly. So that's my guess, unless they've been changed.

Yeah that sounds about right, it's definitely got bilstein shocks on the back. I need to get a 2nd set of wheels - I've got one or two flat tyres atm and it's a pain in the arse to move the car, are there any other cars with the same pcd and center bore? Anything will do to be honest, just a set of steelies or something
