    i personally would strip it of the headlights, take that god aweful windscreen out, and poss change the back exhausts!!

    Nice car with potential but would require ALOT of £'s to put right!!!!

    Not a lot to put right when you think about it, new set of wheels for me and a new exhaust paint the bump strips and head lights red and you well on your way to been done.

    The idle control valve needs replacing.
    The pasanger side front to back, and the drivers door have both been keyed.
    The near side front wheel is buckled.
    The ABS sensor needs replacing, due to this the speedo has stopped working.
    The passanger heated seat switch needs replacing.
    The front near side wing needs replacing.
    The roof has been cut, it has been repaired but would look better replaced.
    The passanger window mech needs repairing as the window has dropped around half an inch.
    It needs 2 rear tyres.

    It will need a Cat for its MOT as it has been fitted with a straight through De-Cat pipe.

    All Cheap repairs there then, especially the roof

    If the roof is repaired correctly then you would never know but it must of been a cheap rush job.

    I recon you could so it all and get it through test for around 1k and have a decent car at the end of it

    Only way to repair the roof properally will be to replace it. There are aftermarket options but i'm sure you'd still be looking at 1k fitted
