First off, new door to do away with that dent . then as time and budget allow, tinted windows, lowered 40mm, metalic grey alloys (cant decide if it should have sporting alloys or 14's). colour coded all round with clear lights, full sony head unit and speaker set up (maybe with a small sub) and a nice exhaust to make it sound nicer, maybe evan a spoiler. it will pretty much end up looking like a subltly moded cinq sporting but in that green so unusual . cant decide if i should play with the bumpers or not .

Re: Yoda the green sx

I have a feeling that dent on your door could be pulled out quite easily. Looks a nice clean dent too.

Thanks

Re: Yoda the green sx

got him home this afternoon. found couple of little bits i need to do. speedo cable needs replacing (dash end) and wear mark on drivers seat that i somehow missed lol. and a load bang when you hit a bump (passenger side). but i found the cause of this. you'll prob never guess what? all in all im pleased, nice little car. i have the fail slip from mot man, all it needs is the left spring locating properly and a new headlight bulb to pass

plans are. First off, 2 new doors to do away with a couple of irratating dents. then as time and budget allow, tinted windows, lowered 40mm, maybe metalic grey alloys (cant decide if it should have sporting alloys or 14's). colour coded all round with clear lights, full sony head unit and speaker set up (maybe with a small sub) and a nice exhaust to make it sound nicer, maybe evan a spoiler. it will pretty much end up looking like a subltly moded cinq sporting but in that green so unusual. cant decide if i should play with the bumpers or not .

Re: Yoda the green sx

nope lol, spring IS located properly, the shock absorber top has been put together wrong. The large washer (under the large bolt) at the top is upside down, so instead of facing up, it faces down. the shock moves up and down because it has play, when you push the car down you can see about half an inch of thread UNDER the bolt

Re: Yoda the green sx

well, i decided today to get the front shocks off and see whats up with them, one side the top washer was upside down so i compressed the spring and undone it then as i flipped it i realized why it was done, the top mount on that side had perished so bad it was in 2 bits, so they flipped the washer to make it appear fine. then on the other side i noticed it looks like something is missing, there is to much thread showing up top and instead of having a gap between the mount and the top washer, it sits flush. so looks like i will be getting a set of front shocks and springs with good mounts from the breakers, then i can fit my new shocks to the new mounts and anything missing on mine, will be on the set i buy so i can use them as a referance and build them up PROPERLY (SAFELY)

Re: Yoda the green sx

ok, so im a guy. and here is the reason all you women should stop going on at us men to do things. got up this morning and thought "im gonna go shopping for my front shocks today" went out, did i come back with shocks? NO I came back with a whole car paid deposit today, bring her home in next couple of days, this one is a bit of a banger (dented door and wing, noisy tappets, blowing exhaust) but it has 9 months mot and 4 months tax so the new plan is to use this one til mot runs out then swap out the front shocks and mot yoda. thus leaving me with a complete car for spares (the grey one)
here is the new one
