How much is complete renovation of a sedan? Nothing special, just interior and exterior fixes, because engine and other mechanical stuff are fine.
Can I do it by myself or itís better if I pay some expert to do it?

I meant that my viscous coupling is seized. Please, let me know where did you find an LSD for the rear! I could do with one. It really has to be limited as the center is locked Laughing. Otherwise, I'll end up breaking something. Also, let me know if you find an affordable front LSD somewhere!

Yeah, I noticed that the rear bumper supports are different. An easy fix is to cut the support right under the upper stud. However, my ED1 bumper frame was badly bent so it was useless.


I've bought an OBX LSD to install in the rear. It needs a little bit of modifying (it's actually a front LSD), but there's a few RT4wd wagon guys who run these in the rear. If i come across the write-up i'll link it to you, if not i'll show you when i do it in my build thread Smile

Complete revovation would cost you a fortune if you paid for someone to do it for you. You can do most of the work yourself but you'll need help or tools for bushings replacement. My rebuild would have taken for ages without my friend, car hoist and proper tools. Welding was done by a friend of mine and I paid for respray (too much). With all the parts and donor cars etc., the rebuild have cost me thousands of Euros. It's expensive for sure if you do it properly.

That's why I ask. I probably can't do it by myself. I hope I will get someone to help me with it, like you did.
How long have you guys worked on renovation? From start to the end...

It took about a month to get my car road legal. It's not ready yet but finishing will have to wait as I want to enjoy the car now.

I bought these bad boys for the rear. They are from a race car but they have just been serviced so I wish that they'll last forever Laughing. Here's a shot of ÷hlins top mounts + adjusters. I have ÷hlins coilovers on my S2000 and they're superb.

There was a bit of snow at the rear after last Saturday on ice. Here's some more ice and snow: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com...gKJ2S9vD226Ruugg=w1280-h1024?.jpg. The rear bumper was packed with snow so I need to get some rubber/plastic flaps to fill this gap above the mud flap. The metal extensions were gutted off as they were corroded. I need to adjust the exhaust a bit as it's catching the prop shaft on bumps. Here's a better shot of the shaft and exhaust under it. It's getting worse all the time. The front silencer is also catching the body so there's more adjusting to be done. I checked everything underneath so I here's a shot from a little peculiar angle.

Enjoying the car is the main thing about this for me, too.
I think that one month is pretty good for a job like that, it will take me more time for sure.

I've been practising my driving on icetrack every weekend. I'll update some photos later but you can find all my new videos from my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/K3Nguru

Here are a few pics from the videos Laughing
-high speed drift (incar) starting at 100 km/h
-close call with Audi in extreme conditions
-drivingon the limit. No room for error as the snow banks were rock hard
-driving as fast as possible hitting the top speed of 111 km/h before braking point on the last few laps. I finally had to stop because an exhaust hanging rubber failed. Luckily, I have plenty of ground clearance so I was able to rehang the exhaust on the spot

Facelift front with lip is a nice addition to my collection: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com...JpnnqyaUIdfsxG5qg=w800-h600?=.jpg

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com...mWH-xU0mEf9t9CkZg=w800-h600?=.jpg

I bought the car as spares but I'm already thinking of making it an icetrack monster for next winter. No interior, roll cage, engine with turbo and spike tyres Laughing. Sounds good, doesn't it Question

I'm pretty sure you have every 4wd sedan in your whole country now.
