Re: 16V Turbo or 20V Turbo Diesel???

Still quite rare though, so it would be better to be preserved in factory spec. What if 117 other 16v turbo owners had the same idea?

16V Turbo Project

So today I drove to see the car in the flash as it were.

She started first turn of the key with a jump and the downpipe was a bit blowy near the flexipipe where they always go.

The brakes are...





...very rusty but free. I was thinking of taking a set of discs and pads when I collect the car so it would be safer to drive home. I'll wrap the flexipipe and replace it at home unless I have time to do it on the spot.

One of the wheels...



...needs replacing, the headlights are a bit milky and the tail lights...



...are a pretty good nature reserve but mechanically the car is sound. Cosmetically?



Dent under the drivers side tail light, rear bumper and boot lid where the old girl has hit a post from the looks of it. Dent on the bonnet where someone has leaned on it to change the wiper (the one most Coupe's get near the headlight). New rear bumper, new boot lid, respray and other touch ups (aluminum mirror bits and the other usual suspects).

Also I need to strip...



...red paint from the engine. Looks nice from a distance but terrible up close.

At least the boot...



...wired up for a sub.

I am really looking forward to this.

Re: 16V Turbo project

Photoshopped pop up lights look really good. Ferrari 355 good.

I like the look of this bumper. With more purposeful fog lights it would make the car look a little like the TWR XJ220S.

Sorry my mind keeps straying from "restoration" to "modification".
