Onto the bad bits -This is an ongoing project!
It will need a new clutch in the near future as it is slipping in 4th and above under hard load
The seats rears have started to peel off
The door pulls are cracked
It has started to crunch into 2nd gear when cold
Headlights have got common hazing on them
The car has had paint in the past
The car needs a bit of TLC however as you can see it is still in good condition for 15 years old!
I did not do this conversion I bought this as an ongoing project to finish off however I don’t have the time and i haven’t done any work on the car, all I’ve done is wash it and drive it! I need an all year round car, I will answer any questions as best I can!
I done 3k miles in summer with no issues, has been a great car.
HPI & Finance clear
I’m in no rush to sell so no silly offers however this is a project car that I have limited knowledge on so I have priced accordingly
