so seeing as i have just obtained a super s, 73k on the clock and at only £385, i thought i shall do a project blog on the old baby.

mod list:
-new fogs (red color coded) *in process of buying
-deep dish alloys (sprayed white)
-small oval exhaust
-color re-done on grill, mirrors and side skirts
-induction kit
-full ice lights
-reverse mount 6x9 in parcel
-scratches and stone chips repaired

ok so far:
managed to buy the super s off ebay for a reasonable £385, collected it from salisbury and got it home nicely.

a couple of days of driving it and checking the weather, a good clean was in order, it still needs the interior cleaned thoroughly, car t-cut and a good wash down at my bro's workplace

here is the car so far:

i will look out for lowering springs after i have some deep dishes on, just to see how low i can go
after its all done up and such, and once i have had my fun i will ponder about selling it, although thats a very distant thought at the moment

Nice, and the plans sound good.
I walways wanted to do a euro K10, make sure you keeps the wheels small and deep, and slam it to the floor ;)

lowest proper springs are -40mm, if you want lower you will have to custom make them, which isnt really recommended! lol

My bro found some k10 coilovers for sale in japan! Came to around £1300 before tax and postage.

OR

Could use k11 coilovers possibly? Will need to be custom fitting. But possible i think?? (ONLY A THEORY)

ahh ok, i will look around for -40mm when i get the money next
i dont like big rims on a k10, i think a 13/14' always look better


and #### thats expensive, surely there must be cheaper ones around

well including waxing, washing and t-cut, and spraying, rigging up and fixing the fogs, took me about 2 hours altogether
