    P1nky's Daily Drive Sport - New Wheels

    Thought i might aswell stick this up. Initially i bought this as I got a job that requires an 80 mile plus daily round trip. Which meant that my defender (12mpg) was way too thirsty... It came up on a website for a daft price however a quick call i netted her for a hell of a lot less it was taxed and tested and cheap to run so I was sold. Back when i was 17 and had a *cough* combat kitted corsa almost 12 years ago I used to lust after an arden blue sport lol. So aged nearly thirty I'm having a kind of midlife crisis!

    The problem or rather the reason i got it so cheap was this.....







    Plan is/was get it tamed down a bit and enjoy driving it... problem is I can never leave owt alone!

    So far she's been treated to a stock boot spoiler, a stock bonnet and a bra total spend 15 oh and i swapped my lexus lights for stock ones with a lad so a cost of nowt





    More to come... Including definately getting rid of those camp stars!

    Very nice now that that horrendous bonnet and spoiler have gone.
    If you decide to get rid of that rear bumper I'll buy it off you.

    Removed the original front bumper which had various self tappers in it to hold it on and scratches all over for a good replacement i got donated by the guy i got my spoiler off.



    Biggest Problem I've got at the mo is my irmscher front splitter is stuck to the old bumper with what looks like about 3 tubes full of tiger seal so need to find a sacrificial kitchen knife to saw through it. Then ill bond it back on as thats staying. Replaced the glove box for one that hasn't got stevie wonders paint work on it!!



    Had a poke round the engine bay.. that cone filters going in the bin and the rocker gasket needs replaced other than that she's pretty tidy. I'd quite like a 4branch and inlet mani though



    Had a poke under the arse end all in all pretty solid seems im running fk shocks on the rear apex springs all round and mismatching std front shocks... never mind the fronts are getting swapped for some coilovers im taking in p/ex against the back bumper....



    Had a rub of the supposed sportex system... It's stainless so i can discount it being a sportex lol

    More to come this week

    I would but having removed tints before it was about as much fun as a knitting needle to japs eye incident... Kind of got used to it now and it seems to make my little one fall asleep every journey which is always a bonus.

    Think an 20XE is on the cards soon edit: 4day weekend booked start of december best find an engine

    Argh broke the golden rule mucked about with my commuter on a week night. Fitted a factory air box now it doesn't seem to want to rev as easily and I mean in a normal manner as normally removing filter stops these bogging then fitted my coilovers I'm encountering the same problem that other lad who gets cussed down is. I've pulled them out to give the maximum positive camber possible and it still catches the tyre and have crazy amounts of toe out... come on lads give me a nudge worked on cars for years even in garages and as it's 11pm I'm too mardy to think straight what needs doing
