Soon as i get some pics..ill put em up..decent pics that is. Only decided to do this cos one of Pomps friends showed up last time at new brighton..and she said that my Micra looked better than hers...

My original plan is to keep this for a few years, drivin it round, then convert it to rally spec..and hopefully get a fully fledged rally licence blah blah...but well see

Lets see whats on this GrannyWagon:

TSW Volcano alloys.... 175/45/15
OMP Racin Wheel 310mm (cos the standard one wudda looked better on a boat)
JVC Headunit (who has tapes these days???)
12" JBL Sub...for the bassy tunes
2 JBL 10" speakers (replaced old ones...for the better quality sound)
Set of Seat covers (dunno what make) Black nd blue....just to hide the Granny Trim



Planned

35-40mm Lowering springs with dampers.
Anti Roll Bar
Induction kit....stop the car soundin like the wind
*Maybe..possibly aftermarket exhaust..if i can be bothered

Then for Rallyin....
Rollcage
Extinguisher
Webbers
blah blah..things youd expect for a rally car.

So thats it for now....with bein a student its difficult to find the dosh to do those things...but im always hopin.....just need to see if it ever happens.

EXTRA

If i do eventually take it rallying..i may upgrade to the 1.3 super s Micra engine...or even go the extra step and make a Hybrid with a 1.6 Almera/primera Engine...its been done before..and hard work...but worth it in the end me thinks...make a very interesting project

:UPDATE:


Just put the CruiseWirral Stickers on hahahahahaha

Not really an Update, but better than nothing.
Ive really got it in my head to get the car lowered now, but Ive got a few hurdles first before I get anywhere near that stage.

1).Get Job Back
2).Week away In belgium
3).Get New Clutch
4).Bits For Race Kart
5).Get springs and things. Chances are, Ill do it myself, to keep costs down

Well, had a few probs, they were all bent and bubbly, but I got em into shape...

Only prob is, the curve of the "C" is a bit too tall for the black strip on my side windows....but never mind...may change em for the autowirral stickers yet...
