    Beat track car build!

    Hi chaps, infrequent classifieds lurker for approximately a year, hoping the right one would come up for sale.

    after being outbid on a few on ebay and the such i bought this one (here) from Ending Credits. needed a bit of work, was using water and oil at a rate of knots.

    this'll be project number 5 haha. i'm a serial car hoarder, currently have a B5 RS4, mk2 escort, mk1 golf and Sierra.

    I picked it up about 3 weeks ago, and got it RAC'd back to my warehouse where the fun could begin. picked up a new water pump, headgasket kit inc valve stem seals, and a cambelt and swapped em all over that weekend, engine now runs a dream

    swapped the plates over and give it a wax and put it to daily use while my RS4 is in the garage getting undoubtably expensive wiring faults tended to. perfect timing really as the sun is out and it's way too nice to be stuck inside a car with a roof and leather interior



    got some pretty big plans for it, but going to enjoy it as it is until at least the end of summer whilst i finish my mk1 golf project.

    I'll bet you'd almost given up.

    Scrubbed up nicely.

    haha, checked my join date and it was the start of feb. got there in the end!

    here's some of the other cars



    the RS4, the only other roadworthy car i own, the rest are all in a million pieces!



    this was at Ultimate dubs last year when i won best wheels, shortly after i stuffed it into a barrier on the A13. it was due a restoration, currently got a 20v engine and various other bits and bobs



    this one's my first car, my '79 Escort, got it almost finished then decided to pull it all apart again. it's sat in my yard as a bare shell awaiting acid dipping! got a K24 Honda engine waiting to go in it

    This one's the last in the quintuplet, an XR4i i've sort of inherited off my old man in the hope that i can fix it's rot issue. currently sat as a bare shell fully welded up. ready for paint

    Plan for the beat is to put a bike engine in it and get it down to 500kg!
