Here are some pics from the previous owner..
It was sold 8months ago, then bought by me couple weeks ago, it seems in those 8 months it had a bit of a hard life, there are some marks in the paint, a scab forming by windscreen, paint is flat, one alloys been smacked, interior bits missing/tatty, boot/window seals leaking, theres a missfire sometimes when booting it, boost is down from 18psi to 15psi etc. etc
So far ive..
-given the power roof motor a freshen up and got it working again smoothly
-fitted my rs4 spoke
-bought a mint rear seat
-new toneu cover
-removed square numberplate
-started tidying bay
-checked timing with timing gun
Heres a few pics i took the other day..
The underside is mint and has never seen a welder, under all the dirt is still the original ford protection coat, so will be getting painted up and detailed underneath i think
Theres three of us with turbo cabbys in banbury now so never short of a hand (rickbartlett and rst_cabby
This is a winter project with the plan to sell this and my fezzy and get a cossie in the spring, so hopefully i wont get too attached to it!
