Default The MK4 Bonus/Popular thread

Now then guys, seeing as there are a few of us now, lets have our own thread

Just a quick reminder of my two bonus's to start the thread off

My Silver one which i sold at the beginning of the year
Bought it as a totally standard low owner, FSH car and completely turned it into an RS Turbo.She was mint and running 18psi .

Views: 200
Size:  50.5 KB

This is my latest Bonus, this one is to be a complete sleeper. Full RST mechanicals but totally standard looks apart from the alloys.If the steels fit over the RST brakes then it will spend alot of time on the steels as well to really annoy people

aint too hard, you need to budget about £1000 tops to convert to RST mechanicals. I reckon i could have a whole car convered in a weekend if i had all the parts

Stembo, are you takeing out your bonus doorcards, if so, what condition are they in

If the steels fit over the RST brakes then it will spend alot of time on the steels as well to really annoy people

escort mk6 and mondy mk1 steels should fit on there
