I probably want to do an I.C.E upgrade but keep the OEM head unit. And maybe an induction mod no thanks to Jim and then Eibach pro lines to drop the suspension a bit.

However every time I think I'm nearly there one of you lot do something to make me think twice!

Ok mate thanx no rush I wish who ever bought mine at new had electrics fitted but hey ho. I only bought it cheap as a non runner so been doing it up over a while now mechanically. When my business starts earning I am going to retro fit rear elecs and cruise on it and visit Jimi as hes an ex mechanic to help fit it , but easier to change two door cards I guess.

Lol mate these Scottish are tight arses No rear elecs / cruise or seats for you either then? Although rear elecs with a soon to be baby here doesn't bother me as the little buggers cant play with it, but cruise is a must 457 for the retro kit that I found!
