Project Twilight 1 (ZS-X) - The Tart Up!
 
Hi Guys,

I have a big list of things I need to get sorted on the car ready for next year so I wanted to put it down here for me and others to look at/refer to. (I will loose my scrap of paper!)

Here goes:

PAINTWORK
  • Replace nearside wing - body kit cracked
  • Front end re-spray - stone chipped/cracking on bonnet vent
  • Rear quarter spray
  • re-spray door - due to scratch
  • Might be easier to do full re-spray?

MECHANICAL
  • Decat - DONE
  • Inlet manifold/VIS replace - DONE
  • Belts - DONE
  • Tracking - DONE
  • XPower Springs - DONE

EXTERIOR SPRUCING
  • Clean headlights up - DONE
  • New badges
  • Custom ZS-X badge?
  • Fix/replace door handles - maybe use honda handles?
  • Show plates - DONE
  • Paint brake calipers
  • refurb alloys
  • New dark ice bonnet lifters
  • Wind deflectors

INTERIOR SPRUCING
  • Install 45 Steering Wheel - DONE
  • Install new stereo
  • Install rear speakers - DONE
  • New genuine mats
  • Fix dash clock
  • Full pro detail

So now it seems that I need some money... wish me luck!

Here is a pic as she is right now :

The the car looks like it needs a lot of time spending on it - looks pretty rank .... ;)

Plenty to be getting on with there.

As for the bodywork - if you can stretch to it, I'd say get it all done at the same time by a trusted sprayer.

This was superb back when I saw it at Saloon Day.

Wasn't impressed I was put next to it - my Sunspot was put to shame! :D

Looks very good, anybody know where to get them MG ZS plates made up? I've asked a few motor factors near me that do number plates and they all say they can't make the exact copies the best they can do its silver on black aluminium pressed plates
