Havn't updated as nothing has been done due to lack of funds.

The car is going to be at the car shows of 09 so got to complete all of the plans pretty sgarpish and get the engine sorted to make it to the shows without dieing en route lol..

Here's a quick pic from a recent photoshoot

Mate, ive seen this a couple of times and have always assumed it was a VTR. I didnt pay much attention to it as its really not my thing but wanted to comment on that fact that this has to be the only saxo I have seen on the Wirral being driven sensibly.

Hope it all goes well, and i look forward to seeing the final results!

Alex

hi nice car, now that you have lowered it I would consider larger rims imho, the rims that you have are nice. I am saying this cause I used to have them on my punto but you need larger. With them being 15" and having a rim eg the spokes dont meet the face of the wheel, it makes them look even smaller. Still very nice motor smile

I dunno, 15" Volcanos give a nice, under stated look I reckon.
Had the Micra ever been lowered, it would have looked superb on the same size wheels I reckon.

Can always have a play with Photoshop though happy
