    started by stripping down the doner car
    took everything off the car labelling each and every wire as i went

    leaving just the shell

    i then stripped down the 1.6 and slowly put it all back together.....

    cant seem to find any more picture of the conversion......couldn't have really gone much smoother!!
    had a minor problem with the battery earth, wasn't grounded very well..... set me back 2 days... but a bit of sand paper and jobs a good'un!
    she fired up just as before! all in all conversion took 2-3 weeks spending a few hours every evening!

    i then thought id treat my wheels to a gloss re-spray with a white lip leaving the finished project
