    It's coming along nicely mate. I'd get a few things colour coded, and lower the car. It'll be looking mint!! It all takes time though!

    p.s did you get your clutch problem sorted??

    Thanks for the comments.
    I still have an Apex Sport kit to fit, lowering by 40mm.
    And this week most of my ice stuff is going on, nothing sepcial, just a basic, HU,amp and 12" sub.

    Not too sure what else i am gonna do, i don't really wanna colour code much more stuff because i think it will look "too" white, the black breaks the colour up.
    I am deffo gonna lose the stickers.
    As for the future i don't really think i wanna put anymore money into it, as its only an SPi and ain't really worth keeping for very long.
    The plan is to keep it till about July next year and see if it passes MOT, as the other arch(not in the picture) is rusting really bad(cracked etc) and it passed this years MOT but the sills and suspension has some corrosion, so i don't know if its gonna pass. The arch in the picture i sanded down to metal, then filled holes with filler and primed and sprayed myself, the whole rear arch, but rust is re-appearing, lasted about 8weeks.
    If it does i will be looking at probably a big-mouthed gsi bumper, don't know what rear bumper, something different. And the spoiler from a Ford Focus(shaped like a wing thing), or the spoiler from a mondeo estate(lots of novas have them fitted).
    If it don't pass then i will probably get rid and get either another MK3(mpi engine), or move onto a nova sri/gsi.
    Any advice for what to do, i am going towards a faster car, the spi are really unexciting.

    But first things first, gotta pass my driving test this tuesday, wish me luck.
