Guest Posted December 5, 2006 Share Posted December 5, 2006 Hi guys, Thought it best that I start up my own project thread as I am now managing to find the bits that I need. (Thanks to those of you that helped me  ) Ok, so I bought the car from a cracking guy on here for the very good price of £900. The car is an unrestored genuine 53k miler having been owned from new by a gentlemen who obviously treasured it. The exterior is gorgeous with only some slight bubbling around the rear window but apart from that she is straight. The interior (horrible colour) is also in very good order with only the drivers seat suffering some wear. The guy I bought it off dropped it by about 40mm and fitted the ATS wheels that you can see in the pic's below. Now alot people say it should be left as is but to me in it's current guise it is just a bit 'Grandaddy' and in need of some beefing up. Not everyone will agree and I respect those opinions but hey, it's my car and therefore my choice So the initial plan is to stick a 2.0 16v XE engine her running on fuel injection and probably change the interior as well. I now know those parts that I need to source to carry out the conversion and I am pleased to say that I have most of them now I'll probably run the XE for next year but I'm sure that a C20LET will be going in at some point.
