Thanks guys,

Have looked seriously into getting some frames/race seats for it. That is however a slippery slope to stripped racecar dreaming...

I am trying to find shipping options for a set of Rallye seats from Dunedin to Akl. But damn $$$.

Anyone want to sell me some other go fast parts while I am irresponsibly shelling out $$ for an old french gofast wreck.

Coincidentally, I may know where you could find an entire Saxo VTS interior...

you might be able to find 206 gti seats which are pretty supportive but they weigh a tonne.

Or bite the bullet buy some seat brackets and pick up an out of date race seat for cheap for max fast driving comfort

Err sorry for the mahoosive pics. noob here.


Next up on this thing after compliance will be driving it! lots.
then hopefully upgraded suspension, lowered slightly and new bushes all round.


Also, anyone have any ideas for upgraded interior? the seats in these are less than desirable.....

About time for an update. Im slack at this because posting photos always gets me in a twist.

I have spent some time indeed tinkering with getting this lil thing back on the road. Has been a fun adventure with very little left to do, but I was slightly sidetracked with a new jeep as my daily.

Have to date:

Pulled windscreen, rust repairs and replacement screen.
Cleaned up all scuppering, rubber, seals, wipers, new blades etc.
Replaced top rad/oilcooler hose with silicone one.
New front rotors. Ferodos in transit.
Replaced Bonnet with straighter one.
Full fluids flush.
Restored and paint matched wheels. They were well messed up. Dont hate on the white too much I think it sets the car off.
Paneled the folded door, (nice from far far from nice) and popped a couple of other dents.
Full cut and polish.
Cleaned up all plastic trim, with continued coats of old engine oil to try get them black again.
All new Dunlop zii tyres.

Now all that is needed is put in the new speedo sensor that was messed up, replace the speedo cable that was supposedly broken but actually fine.  >:(  Reinstall all interior and get it complied.

After a few(lots) hours of cleaning, poslishing, painting, replacing parts and breaking more in the process, it nears roadworthyness.....

hey,
yeah the suspension is good, though the most profound improvement was a Quaife ATB - really helps maximise drive in all conditions and makes it corner even better!

ah, yes the paint. it is a bit variable: pretty good shape in most places (especially if I've give it its annual polish  :-[), but faded in others - particularly on the roof.
getting a respray is on my list for the long-term.
