Project "credit crunch" is dead RIP

Post by Steve on Tue Feb 17, 2009 11:22 am

as we all no times are hard and i cant afford a nice reasonably quick jap car on insurance or to run so i now have a new car Very Happy i have £1000-1500 atm to build it but have already spent 200 on the car so have just over 800 to build and repair it because atm its a non-runner (engine timing is out)

so here it is :
2002 seat ibiza
1.2 12v 3-cyclinder
black, 5-door





so on to do list is :
first get it up n running then get the dent and scrathes on n/s rear door repaired
deck it on coilovers if can find a pair at right price
euro rims with a dish and some slightly streched tyres (any ideas on wheels people be alot of help)
sound system which to de fair will come out the corolla
maybe HIDs
and any other smart touches i can think of or if any one else give me some ideas

so all this for £1500ish possible??? confused ???

Sweet mate, tidy little car for the money.

Dead simple it's all about "the three D's"
1. Deck it!!!
2. De-badge it!!!
3. DISH!!!!

Follow these simple rules = WIN!!! WOOP WOOP

Basically any wheel with a low offset, so it sits flush with the arches (or a bit further out) will look cool. Sportmax wheels are cheap for this sort of spec. What stud pattern are they???

Tbh if urs is 5 stud i think sportmax is out of the question.

Worth signing up to their owners club for some ideas.
