Thought i would update it some more now running rainsport 3's all round, polybushed the anti rollbar, 20mm spacers front and back and i done the brembo disc and mintex m1144 pads on the back to match the fronts, replaced the radio with a pioneer x7800 (DAB radio, handsfree,3 preouts) cant complain.
The bucket seats are being retrimmed should have them back in a few weeks, gives me to time to fit 0 gauge power cable from the battery to the back seat, where its splits into a block supplying 4 gauge to each amp, also have a mono amp coming for the sub of course JBL. It had a fresh oil change and new filter a few months back topped the old girl out at 122mph not bad for a little 8v

Ok its been awhile since i've posted a update on here but the car was hit by a lorry basicly the tail lift sliced it open like a tin can i had a hire car for 2 months while the insurance companys delt with it after being offered £500 i refused and demanded them to come look at the modified car the inspector had a good look and checked out my ring binder full of paperwork and offered me £1500 which i accepted and brought her back for £150.

I flat bedded her up to the workshop where the work to get her fix was done rear quarter repair, drivers door dent fixed, bonnet resprayed, o/s inner wing rust repair and respray, new rocker cover fitted and plates and a MOT done which i had to provide to the insurance before i could drive it home.

Also since then its had a Janspeed stainless steel backbox fitted that i got for £40
BYC spoiler fitted like the Alive motorsport saxo £375
Fitted uprated spark plugs from NGK
OMP 4point racing harness i used the side mounts for the standard seat belts and had a plate made and fitted to the centre behind the handbrake for the other side, then the back is wrapped around the harness bar.
Now running on TD 1.2s that i picked up for £200 and £80 to have two of them repaired and resprayed then another £30 for a full set of brand new centre caps to top them off with Studs conversion to the spacers to make life easier.
EBC grooved and dimpled discs front and back £180 from work.
New amp for the front and rear speakers JBL GTO-804EZ hell of alot more power than the old one.
Replaced the A,B,C pillars with 106 black ones also got some black 106 rallye sun visors, sprayed the centre light surround black.
Fitted front morettes changed all the bulbs for LEDs from autobeam that are super bright and road legal.
It is off to the workshop tomorrow for more work to be done, dyno day booked for september and next event it'll be at is trax silverstone
Will upload some photos shortly
