Hi Guys

Finally picked her up today

She is a 2001 2.6 V6 Auto CDX Cloth interior

She does have her problems and so does the car but nothing that cant be fixed with Elbow Grease and TLC




For those who know me from my DTi Project dont worry you wont be disapointed, I do hope to weird and wonderful things with this one as well.

In the Line up we have
A set of 4 Late Elite/Sport wheels,
New front and Rear Bumper (as they have various scuffs and dinks)
Replacement Nearside Doors as one has a scratch from every cars hell that is the Supermarket main car park and one has Aerosol on which looks like it has been applied by Zoro himself
Elite Rear Spoiler
Elite Black Leathers
New Centre Console Ashtray as hing has compeletly broken
New Exhaust system as it is compeletly shot
Rear Springs as one currently does nothing except wobble
New headlight lenses as currently cloudy
Black headlight conversion like DTi project number 2
New Knock sensor as one is in half
Auxilary belt and tensioner
and a Bloomen good service


I will update pictures accordingly to keep everyone up to date
Hope everyone is well and its good to be back!  :y :y :y

UPDATE TIME
Right Guys Long overdue

The CDX is powering on UK (Sh1te) roads once more  :y

With a brand new Cat Back exhaust system and a Nearside Manifold/Downpipe gasket she purrs how its supposed to
it then had Some Pirelli 225 55 16's fitted that i had in the workshop

after all the hassle i had with the knock sensor i finally managed to get the second one in and its still working (touch wood)

I have recently purchased some late Elite/MV6 alloys but they are in dier need of refurbing as they look like they have been brought up from the top deck of Titanic.

My most recent change has been from CDX Cloth to Late MV6 Leathers (many thanks to Zirk - Pleasure to meet you sir)
and here is the difference





Still awaiting confirmation off new doors and front and rear bumpers but im on the case

Stay tuned....
