Heres a few pics of my Mk3. Its coming along nicely now, and im hoping to have it all "finished" buy PV.







And... heres a few pics of my interior. Ive had all the seats, doorcards, gaiters and parcel shelf trimmed. The fronts are Cobra Sidewinders, the backs of them have been sprayed the same colour as the car, and the bolts holding them in were sprayed Ford Ash Black to give that little extra effect. At the moment im still waiting for the harness plugs to come back from the painter, so i havent taken any pics of the seats from the front.












I built myself a new armrest which is now housing my dvd player. The trimming on the inside of it needs a little work which im going to get round to asap, but im well chuffed with it. :bb:




To add to the bling of the steering wheel ive added some TVR "spoon" indicator stalks. All i need now is a polished gear knob and handbrake handle (which will hopefully be coming from a TVR also). Not the best pic, but you get the idea. :D

For true sleeper effect, I'd say fit a C20LET. Smoother, quieter and more powerful.

Bugger, this is the 2nd interior I've seen since I bought my seats........... and although I'm chuffed with what I now have, I can't help but think...... hmmmmmmmmmmm, perhaps I should have done it differently....!?!? ;)

Nope... guess again. Ive got a gsi kit, with the big mouth conversion. Its having a smooth and "subtle" badboy bonnet, removing the washer jets off the bonnet and having a single wiper with the wash-wipe system. The scuttle pannel is being smoothed and painted. Got some nice smooth skirts to go on. Delocking the doors and painting the handles. Removing the rear aerial and smoothing it. Then the boot is being debadged and dewipered. Think thats about it. lmao

Future plans, once my wallet has recovered, is a 2.5 V6. Although thats probably quite a way off. :rolleyes:
