swift gti number 8

Post  STEVEGTI on 06/08/13, 02:14 am

just bought this bad boy off of ebay needs a few parts and some love but im the guy for that Smile

the underside is fairly solid looking wich is why i went for it

needs a bonnet and a boot due to rust and a respray as the red is faded

plan is to sort the bodywork go crazy with underseal fit a alarm and central locking keeping the wind up windows less hassle







apart from a check engine light seems to run ok and drove ok on 4 flat tyres lol

Like the mk2 model!Laughing  It is better looking then the mk3 in my opinion. Good luck fixing it and keeping it on the road! Smile

I thought u left the game? Still got the turbo model? Anyway, there was no chance of finding a ph1 without rust. good luck with sorting it out. let Mr know if you need any parts, I've still got most bits I broke off a ph1
