So thats where the rally gb sign went to?? Ha!

My kind of car love it, great colour, stance, rims, even like the spots, which i normally dont, its weird how the spot covers highlight the vauxhall badge.

Are the rims ats? Always thought standard rims are too narrow.

Looks like your running 60mm lowering springs. Is it a 1.6 manual, grwat we setup, have a 1.6 manta and is sweet to drive, great fun.

Wasn't me who took it LOL 

 

Thanks for the feedback on it mate - ive just started a build thread documenting most of what its had done

The wheels are Rota Shotakans - or RM8's are the same - 15x8 inch lowered on 60mm shocks and springs, its only a 1.6 but its ample for what I want it for

Yeh, got a wee 1.6 wouldnt change it, you can leave it in 4th, plant it, off at the corners, plant it again, a real drivers car!

Was so tempted to 2.4 it with a frontera on 45 carbs, was gonna leave it a 4 speed, and fit a LSD, decided not to, it would change it wrongly, might do this to a hatch though! 

Youve a great setup, car really suits what youve done to it, fair play
