Here's my first rwd car/ drifter :



The roof was damaged. I was suprised how much it weighed... so err i'm not fitting a new one !


]

Bit more srtipped than this now. Cleaning it all out. repairing the one small bit of rust in the passanger foot well. And will be making a plate to replace where the heater matrix/radio controls are with all my switches and stuff




Bucket seats which im fitting in the coming days. Keeping seat belts until i get my hands on some 5 point harness's and fabricate a bar across the back to secure them.



Rear panel is damaged. Might get a new one if one pops up. But i'm not that bothered after all it is a drift slag.

Hi mate I went for a millers 5 30 fully synthetic oil which seems to be nice but I haven't had a chance to test it properly.

Hopefully buying a NASCAR trs harness on the cheap of eBay too if things go well

wheels are buddyclubs. or ultralites. or kosei. they're a buddyclub design, licensed to the other two over the years, so there's various different ones floating about, all of the same design.

let me know if you ever want rid of them as i have a few random pairs that could do with some friends.

Will let you know bud! but i probably wont be selling. Wait if you have a few odd pairs around i might be interested in buying has hopefully im going to have her on the road soon so i can take her drifting over the summer.

Can not wait to drive her! Hope fully this weekend, i'll have the seats in:

dial panel fitted (pictures soon)
seats in
handbrake sleeve and button in
might even start some weight loss and get rid of the supports on the bonnet is it worth it though?

if you're drifting, just get some random shit oem wheels from vw/seats/toyotas etc. my pairs are mostly random jdm delicious, it'd be a waste to 'drift' them as they're not really replaceable. no point using decent wheels if you're just going to skid them.

Whoops forgot about this.

Anyways lots of progress coming in the following month or so. today i fitted a new (very nice) temperature sensor which fitted in conveniently with a bit of tinkering


here it is :



I also picked up a new head fully built from Triplee (thanks bud). I'll post pictures of this in a couple of days i'm stripping down and it will be gas flowed in the coming weeks bye a friend of mine. ready for the turbo lump i'm gathering parts for.

will make the centre dash this week too if i get a chance! Now the weathers got better i can crack on i can get it ready and get it on the road for some drifting fun


Thanks for reading the worst progress thread ever
