    Recent Pics of 'Project Arsetrap'

    Been quite a few months since i've really posted an update on my project Merit. It has been given the pet name 'Arsetrap' - why, I really don't know

    Covered it's 68000th mile today, and still seems to be running strong!

    Since having it, it's had:

    Earlier spec cam cover (to stop oil leak from shitty plastic version)
    De-Badging and rub strip removal.
    GSi Rear Lights
    Sport Rear Spoiler
    Sport 15's
    JVC Headunit and SPL-X sub package.

    Am currently getting together money for Bilstein suspension kit and GSi brakes all round Plus plans to do a proper boot build built around the box that is there now

    Recent pic of it in 'mid 90's undercover Police mode' - taken the day after Donny.



    Pics after a decent clean - few days after I fitted the wheels





    And the install bit's that I whacked in last weekend. Considering it was so cheap i'm stunned by the sound quality







    Future plans are to get my boot build at least in progress by Redline Rumble. Then it'll be chassis work and full GSi interior with black plastics.

    Potentially a 1.8 lump out of a freind's Mk.2 in July too



    Edit: car will be on Migweb stand at Speed show, AS stand at Rumble and should be on Mig stand at PVS too

    Otherwise i'm usually somewhere around BM Heaven or AveItLArge at shows lol

    Very nice clean mk3 there, coming on nicely aswell. Very low mileage for the year, look after it and it will last a lifetime.

    I had 127K on my Mk3 & 104K on my last Mk4.
    These engines are very well built, especially if you give them regular oil changes & cambelts.
