Hi mate.
There is a bloke down in Devon called Beefy who needs a set of seats before you scrap them.
Cheers Mark.

What supercharger are you using? eaton m45 or something sexy like a rotrex :mrgreen:
How are you mounting it? Any engine internal upgrades?

Are you sticking with the running gear (guessing standard 1.7 box, diff etc) from the doner? arent you worried itll just blow the box to pieces?

Keep us posted dude ... and plenty of pics please

Love the pink,who is doing the powder coating and what are they using? When I was living in England I was working in the family business of blasting and powder coating.I would only use Nylon powder that is is flexible and if it gets scratched you just heat it with a hot air gun and re melt it smooth again.The Nylon powder has also been proven to survive a bomb blast.If they have used Polyester which is also good but is not as durable and doesn't flex.It can chip and then the rust gets under and chips it away some more.

Sorry to hijack this thread but any of you that are having stuff powder coated ask for Nylon.......its the SH!T

Please note that I have refrained from plugging the family business. :wink:
