Here it is, project number 2 不.

The only thing big about this is the amount of work to get it driving again 不

I'm keeping the twins, rats nest and all that if i can make sense of the vac lines, just bolt on mods but the first thing will be to find out if the engine is any good.

All this though will have to wait till the other one is mapped but ill update this now and then as and when i do little bits.

No mate i havent seen it yet. I bought this off Facebook marketplace. I tell you what though, the seats look like they came out of a sunken ship 不 but the car is 100% solid from what i can see.

I got it to fire the other day, pulled the plug off for the pump and gave it a little squirt of easy start down the lower intake and it spluttered straight away. So the plan is to get the rats nest sorted to simplified spec and bolt it back together and see what happens. Though it looks like the turbos may be a bit smokey due to oil residue in the intake but we'll see.
 
It's not an SP wing, it's more rounded, they look quite different in the pics ;).

Nice purchase, you're a brave man going for multiple FD's (y).

You must have just beaten me to this! I was messaging the seller as soon as I saw it and he sold it just before I was supposed to view it. Be good to see what you do with it.

Ah man, the guy said he was inundated with messages, i guess i just stood out lol. I did buy it without seeing it though.

Yeah it's nothing fancy but it's going for mot tomorrow so I'll put a decent pic up then. It did have a lot of red "accents" but these have since been repainted black and looks much better. Like the wiper arms, the grilles and it did have red mud flaps but these are gone too. There was also a lot of red in the engine bay brush painted.
