I'm sure most of you will recognise this as Whooligan's old car. I bought it almost a year ago now and am finally getting around to starting a thread about it.
When I bought it, it was as is in the first photo, with standard brakes and suspension and an internally stock Zetec. I got straight on to gutting the underside of the car and put some Capri coilover struts and alloy hubs in the front with single leafs and Bilstein shocks in the rear.
As far as brakes go, I've gone down the twin Wilwood master cylinder pedal box route with vented and slotted rotors + Wilwood 4 pot calipers. I've left the drums in the rear for the time being, and am looking in to options there.
Also installed a quick rack for sh!ts and giggles.
The Zetec will stay internally standard for the time being also, it won't break any speed records but it should be a bit of fun at least.
Anyway, it's only a couple of weeks away from being on the road now, currently getting brake pipes and stainless hoses made up, so I should have the car back on Wednesday, then will go in for a mod plate for the engine conversion and rego after that.
I haven't really gotten a great deal of work done on it considering it's nearly been a year, but I have little free time these days between work and gigs/touring, but I'm sure I'm not the only one!
Here are some random pictures. Ignore the 4x4 spec ride height, haven't set any of the suspension up yet.
