..absolutely nothing. So now I am looking at disc brake conversions, either to match the 4x100 front, or a complete swap for the front and back, maybe p11 m6

Now seeing your post. I really liked this little car from the moment I saw you post it up so I just had to take it and restore it lol. True there was more to be done to have it on the road than what i originally thought, but it wasnt anything too out of the way, so now its on the road being used as a daily while I work on it. I could never regret getting this car :) :)

Also, anybody have a fpr just laying about? Looking for one without busting my wallet right now, a reasonable second hand one would be perfect.

Redid the exhaust today, no more loud barrel life. Gonna run it this way till i get time to do extractors etc, but it builds power much faster now than before. Also no need for long stares from police as they pass by, and now my family won't know when i leave the house at night :lol:

Still far to go. Started piece of the body work today as I had some spare time. What's really pressing for me right now are some suspension parts, as I have no idea where to locate any. Any help?

I saw a rover 200 scrapping by a place on the highway just before Kay Donna heading west. That was over 3 years ago though. ..

UPDATE.
This is how the car currently looks at this stage of bodywork.

however, at this point the build is currently on hold for an unknown period of time. my mother was hospitalised last night, and as such my daily priorities have shifted. Not sure when I will resume, but it wont be for alteast a month.
