    JT's 5 Door B

    Thought I would start a topic on my car as it is finally coming along now.

    Here is pretty much how I got the car:



    Unfortunately for me it wouldn't pass an MOT like that as the wheels rubbed on the arches and one was severly buckled, also sunstrip went past the A mark by about 2 inches.

    This is the car a few weeks ago, when I joined the site, then got slated for the Ripspeed.



    And this is the car today, started to wash it but couldn't be bothered so it's down to the ASDA car wash later!

    Notice Ripspeed and all other stickers are gone, I have a plain blue sunstrip to replace the one that I ruined the other day. Flat wipers are being sent out Monday and DTM Mirrors should have arrived today but didn't.



    Next steps:

    Get side skirts fitted and arches colour coded

    Bucket seats

    Let me know what you think I should do next!

    Much better mate - liking it now

    I would colour code your arches to match up with the front bumper, colour code your door handles and get some depo headlights as they would really suit your colour.

    Thats about all I can think of at the moment - oh yea - get some AC stickers

    Sorry forgot to mention, I have the skirts, and when they are fitted the arches will be colour coded along with them. And its been lowered 40mm already Just little wheels!

    And the dtm mirrors i might colour code, just getting the hang of spraying lol, I'll see how they look first!

    What size are your new wheels because your right enough - in the first pic with old alloys it looks around 40mm but in say your last pic the front looks quite high

    What about sussex street cars sticker on drivers rear window on one side and AC sticker on rear passenger side or vice versa - that would be acceptable

    Its vauxhall spectral blue pearlescent or something and yeah its a standard colour, just rare!

    And Kingseseriz (mind my spelling!), that is something I am thinking about, a black irmsher one, but i liked the blue, you are all persuading me though!

    Just need a source a nice one, any ideas?
