History: 2003-2004

I saw it for sale by the of the road in May 2003 with no mot or a slipping clutch and a few worn bits etc. even I’d always liked J I had never even heard of a but I bought it there and then.

to the guy I bought it from, it turned out he had only bought it recently an old boy that he had done some for, The old boy had bought it from his Colt dealer, Denver (skid parish) in Bury st as an ex demonstrator when it was one years He had then owned it untill he up driving in 2003. The guy I bought it had bought it to do

up but after only owning it for a decided that he didn’t the time so put it up for sale again.

When I got it home nobody could see the potential, even the body had been restored by the owners son at some point it needed plenty of recommisioning.

the next year I replaced the most of the front steering reconditioned the front lower replaced the battery, starter and painted the front headlight panel and detrimmed the sides. I sourced some Fondmetal from an S12 nissan 200sx and the springs up with some ones for a Mk3 fiesta and a Mk2 golf

Although it now looked loads than before I wasn’t keen on the wheels, even they were very to the origional 14 steels in style I they were still a bit looking so decided to have stripped and powder coated

The engine bay was in pretty good but it did need a bit of tidying, I painted the black and gave it a good

A subtle change that a lot of differance was stipping the rear lenses and grill of all the chrome had tarnished and flaked off over the I chose to paint it all a dark grey as well as the rear panel.

I also made a new GS/r from a skyline GT/R and a GS badge as my origional was knackered.

is how the finished car looked in 2004 I went to RCS and got flyered by somebody Retro-Rides.
