Rachel's SiR Project Thread....and it all starts again!!

Postby Rachel1990 » Tue Oct 02, 2012 7:33 pm

Yes 2 months after selling my beloved sol i am back with another which means another project thread!
Welcome Rattles!
I picked her up a few weeks ago, she is a 1992 JDM sir, but strangely doesnt have many of the JDM extras :( but she has come with a few nice mods Skunk2 catback exhaust system DC Sports 4-1 exhaust manifold, aem long arm air intake, skunk2 weighted gearknob, uprated speakers, Coilovers and only 65k on the clock with lots of paper work to prove. Unfortunately when i went to view it, i poked a hole in it....literally!!! It has got some rust around the arches but its not too bad so we will be dealing with it shortly :) She had a few little broken bits here and there so i went and picked a load of parts up :D
So here she is when i first bought her
Image
Image
Urgently need a new bonnet!!!
Image

First few things i sorted out were the glovebox, drivers handle, and rear spoiler
Image
Image
Image
New spoiler next to the old one
Image
I quite like the De-spoilered look!!
Image
Image
These bits are all replaced now, so i started work on the interior! I got some black vinyl spray and have started spraying the grey interior parts black, so far I've done the door cards, roof and started the rear speaker trim and middle bit...but ran outta spray so there is more on the way lol

I also started work with the colour coding, this time i chose pink and glitter :P
Image
Should have worn gloves lol
Image
A better picture of the colour
Image
The strut brace and a few other lil bits are all pinked up and nearly ready to go back on aswel :)
And as many of you already know the coilovers that were fitted meant I couldn't actually get on my drive so i got some Teg shocks, 50mm lowering springs and teg LCAs, these are fitted now with my boyfriends white 17"s, until my alloys are rubbed down and re sprayed...yeah you guessed it PINK!!!
We only finished the suspension today so i havnt taken any pics yet, but whilst we are working on her i decided to wash the boot carpets....which was when i found this...:(
Image
Image
So even more welding to do!! We are hoping to make a start this weekend depending on the weather :roll: My S2000 seats are on the way and hopefully should be here by the end of the week aswel :D
Thats all for now folks!

Looking good so far Rachel, i now see why you want PINK wheels.. :D :D

No doubt a few Bargin buys will be made to bring "Rattles" up to scratch, i don't hold out much hope with the weather though.. :roll: :roll:

haha yeah already started the bargain hunting! the glovebox, door handle, spoiler, teg lcas, teg shocks and nearly new lowering springs were only £160 altogether and just got a set of half leather s2k seats in pretty good condition for £185 :D plus the welding is being done my my boyfriend brother so that is virtually free :)
Rattles is very rattly hence the name lol

It was Plastikote....my new best friend lol I used Cilit bang and a sponge (rough side) to give em a good clean first them sprayed them with a few coats. One can did both door card gray bits, the middle section of the rear speaker panel and the roof and still have a lil bit left.
Its lasting quite nicely so far :D
thanks for all the comments :)

You can get it in different colours but i thought id play it safe with black, a matt black would be more subtle and wud be a close match in my opinion :)
