i bought this car over a year ago - was in a bit of a poor condition after a small accident and neglected for over a year.

this is what it looked like when i got her...





this what it looks like today...





fitted a newer 'undamaged' bulkhead, welded up the panels and got some replacement bumpers, door pods etc...

i have some race plans for her starting with a debut on the drag strip next week (3rd Jan) and race days next month - should be fun!

Bart.
this one is like a special edition Ballade Sports which came with a D16A3 (browntop ZC), bumpers and side skirts - has all the features of a JDM Si but carries a 'ballade sports' badge.

cheers boys.

im taking her to the drags next week to see its performance in stock form - i suspect mid to high 15s will be on the cards and then we'll see from there.

Im working on the RacingHart wheels now - they are red and will be black when im finished with them :)
