  1. Thanks again, Im guessing the tyres are going to rub , but its on a 195 right now, Theres plenty options these days on 15 inch, can go to a 175/50 in 15 as well, The "5 Star " wheel is just a local knockoff rim , its on 6J wide and I wasn't to fond of it. Nonetheless, will lower an inch and see. the Pinto is yet to go in, so it will go down a bit more
  2. Used the lock down to teach myself how to weld, spray paint etc., Thus I tried my Hand at building the coilvers using eth unversal sleeve over sets. Still in the process of final mockup before welding. Also I decided to go with a 15inch wheel as opposed to 13 inch. I cant put my finger on it, but it doesnt look right? Perhaps the front needs to go down another 30mm?
  3. Fast forward to 2021. Its been 4 yrs of owning the little Mk2. just when I thought id have the Kent screamer built, with the the go faster goodies, Got hit with an urge to go the Pinto Route, so used Lock down to effectively strip it all out again, As events unfolded, my auto gearbox on the saffy seen its days so ended up buying a complete non runner Gli just for the 5speed. Teh Pinto thus comes in handy along the extremely usefull other bits like fuel lines, wiring, etc etc, Lets hope its not another 4 yrs to get her back on the road
  4. I Blame the Japs, there's some real classics out there with heritage and good value for money . The values of Mk1 and Mk2 are crazy now, and every little original bit costs and arm n leg
  5. The car turned out SWEET !! Well done there !!
  6. Thank you, Was hoping to get things going with the car, however life's priorities do take over. At least for now its dry stored in the garage,
  7. Looking good , I guess you leaving the battery and its tray under the hood ?
  8. Fast Forward to April 2020, Not much progress on the car, Its still garage bound. Interior has been stripped down to clean up the floor pans.
  9. Cool, Body panels are not easy to get here in SA, thus a lot of people resort to cutting up really clean 4 doors to build up 2 doors. Now even the 4 doors are drying up, and everyone is worth saving ,
  10. Quite Noticeable that its a South African car, Big ups for saving her though, !!
  11. This was the first one done in South Africa, Featuring an independant rear end setup of a E 30 BMW . It was a Speed n Sound Magazine feature car as well.
  12. Thats a hot looking 4 door. Stance looks perfect !!
