had my rs for 3 years as you can see in this post here
http://www.seriesoneturbo.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18943
so i decide the battery needed a bit off attention as there was some suffice
rust on it but then i thort the rest off the bay would look out off place so ive decide to do the whole engine bay and the whole front Suspension might even go further if i have time as i want it back on the road for next year

so not got as much done today as id off like because off famly coming to see the new house and also had to pop in to the bike shop to order my new bike

so heres a few pics to be going on with



















so the plan tomrrow is to drop the engine box and all the Suspension and breaks off

also if any 1 has a this pipe i need 1 as i manged to break mine

Great cars the saxo, had a vtr myself. Interior is real easy to rip out, just pull and watch he tabs break! Believe 207 gti brakes go on without too much issue, someone will correct me though. If you lower the car the rear torsion bar may be seized so will take a bit getting that sorted.

S1 looks good as well, thread followed with interest!
