Hello all! well my original colt 1.3 died off rust Sad i was starting to look towards civics, untill i stumbled across this, a 97 Colt Mirage in black the body work was pretty mint! im a paint sprayer by trade so wont take long before i have her uber clean Smile
Now the amazing thing about this is she was a MOT fail due too rust on the rear chassis legs (which is very common on these), so i only payed 100!!
got her home, spent about 2 weeks prepping and welding up both the chassis legs, replaced a leaky fuel pipe and she was set to go! i primered painted and undersealed the chassis legs, and discovered the rest off the car was rust free Very Happy all the arches are rust free too! absoloute bargain! so once that was done me n my mate spent the day fitting parts Smile current spec

Factory fit splitter, side skirts and fogs
OMP front upper strut brace
ISC coilovers with adjustable top mounts
O.Z super turismo alloys 15"
JDM mirage cyborg interior (steering wheel, door cards, parcel shelf carpet etc etc)
Tango front indicators
JDM cyborg rear lights
Wind deflectors
usual bits n bobs shiney oil cap etc
Not a huge spec atm as shes a new project plenty for to come tho! PICS!

when i picked her up

Well iv been shopping again and wasting more money on the car! haha
Well iv bought some 25mill hub-centeric spacers! so im going to roll my arches in work, n wind my ISC coilovers down more Smile Iv also bought my self some extended purple lug nuts i think they will set my wheels off nicely!
My bonnet is quite rusty on the front and its quite a common fault with these so iv bought my self a rust free one second hand which ill paint my self in work, going to try get the underneath off the bonnet as high gloss finnish as the top Razz want it too look uber clean!
And the bit i have bought the most is by far the best bit, iv searched high and low for one of these and they are just so hard to get hold off! iv bought my self a Fubjitsubo R1M0A Cat back stainless system and a cyborg de cat pipe! these are uber rare! but it was the exhaust or nothing! haha! So heres some pics of bits! im also popping in a few photos of the interior iv put in Smile

Firstly interior shots
Momo steering wheel from cyborg zr (same as evo 4,5,6) note the rank blue and grey interior!

Cyborg zr door cards (all the warning signs and stuff are Japanese)

Interior out!

Stripped out

Black cyborg carpet to replace crappy blue carpet covered in the pervious owners nail varnish LOL

Cyborg rear seats black rear plastics parcel shelf etc

i did have matching front seats but iv sold them to fund brides Smile
Genuine trust gear knob

Bought my Doner car today! gotta JDM FTO GPX manual Smile
For those who dont know its a 2.0 V6 Mivec engine and they run 197Bhp from factory Smile
not loads in a big car but be fairly nippy in my little Colt! plus with it being a V6 there is a fair bit of torque!!
The car its self is fairly stock and has 110km on the engine so is about 80-90k??
But its a very well looked after engine Smile came with a hks air filter (which will be getting replaced with my apexi) and a nice nardi steering wheel Smile
From this conversion ill be able to use the engine, gear box, lower arms, front brakes, i can also do a rear disc conversion aswel to get rid of my drum brakes lol!
im weather to keep the FTO hubs and buy new wheels or re drill the fto brakes to fit my 4x100 pcd as it has been done before on the colt forum.
Ill also get the digital climate control (which is very pricey to buy seperatly haha!)
The seats and everything bolt in but im not sure wether i want to bother fitting them as i wanna get a set of brides or recaros Smile
But the V6 sounds immense n mixed with my Fujitsubo back box n decat should immense!!
