not had a proper project for a while so thought i get one in the shape of a 89 xr3i in black. she a bit of a dog at the mo as it been sitting for 4 years . needs new passenger sills and a pair of wings but being a fussy person it going to get all sills , wings , and arches.

the plan is full cage proper lighten it where ever possible perspex window fibreglass bonnet. decent sus and brakes.

powered buy a fiesta st engine that will have a mountune mp200 but with the additions on worked head and running on omex managment. im still pondering on the gearbox front tho.

will post pics of the dog i mean car shortly
