Comments - okay, so this was my best friends car, along with my other coupe. unfortunately in 2010 he was killed as the passenger in a car from someone driving like a DICK. hence why i dont drive like a tool believe it or not.
shortly after, as i was learning to drive and they needed the space, his parents offered me his other coupe. i owned it almost 2 years building it up as i went along, and i have now sold it on to make way for this one.

it has done 53000 genuine miles, is comet blue, and the interior is actually mint! body wise it needs some panel beating on the passenger rear 1/4 and the bonnet but that will be sorted in good time.


Plans -
generally clean up the car and make it mint/something he would be proud of.

Pics -

the interior. looking alot fresher

tried the front and rear lights on, pretty happy with how they look. just need the bonnet strip on.

HOWEVER, due to the different style of brakes to my later coupe, the starmags DONT FIT. GAY.
gonna put the bakes off the other coupe on it if i can.
