    These are the only other MK1's I've got, although I may have some more that I didn't scan in, but I don't think they are that good.<br><br>You can see some other cars from Donnington http://www.fasterfords.com/donnington_2001.htm if you want.

    OK, these are the only 2 green ones I could find, the second one was very small on the photo, so I had to scan it at a very high res and the quality is a bit poo

    Yes Mark.

    I am a bit chaotic at the minute trying to get ready for work, still a bit jet lagged, I will send a reply later m8.
    Need a couple of questions answered for your prices, are you using a Watts linkage or panhard rod? and do you need the axle brackets fitted as well? what axle are you using (if it is Atlas you will need a diff tunnel fitted).

    Also with the corrosion some decent photos will be ok to get a good idea of price and you would be best to attack it with a screwdriver etc too see how bad it is.

    Re: AVO Owners Club at RSOC National Day

    er...I'm a bit of a butt head when it comes to all this.

    What would you recommend I fit, at the moment its got a standard axle and suspension, would the bits Clint is selling be any good ?

    I would like to use it as a track day car, so what do I need.

    Sorry for being a bit tick.

    Mark,

    Yes to Clint's bits (ooer missus) you will need that part of the kit no matter what you do, the rest is really a matter of budget and ambitions, it doesn't make massive differences using a english or atlas axle or a watts link to a panhard rod, the more expensive (latter) items are obviously best but only if the rest of the car is built to match.
    What sort of engine/power do you want to run? how hard are you going to use the car? Really the sky is the limit with these.

    Let me know more and I can make some reccomendations.

    Re: AVO Owners Club at RSOC National Day

    Thanks for the advice so far.

    Budget isn't going to be that massive for the suspension, as the main goal is to get the car back on the road again first. So I guess I'll try and get my hands on Clints bits and spend the rest getting it fitted and my old girl back on the road.

    An LSD would be nice, but are they expensive, hard to get or need loads of work to fit.

    Should we continue this on a different section, like <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.turbosport.co.uk/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=mcentre&Number=4304&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=>http://www.turbosport.co.uk/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=mcentre&Number=4304&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=</A>

    rather than get everyone upset as it hasn't got much to do with shows.

    Mark
