Get some 303 Aerospace Protectant. Much better than using tyre dressing under the bonnet (if you want lasting shiny, spray the bits with plastic primer and gloss black). It's great for all plastics, and will also bring the dash up a treat too.
I spray it onto a microfibre cloth.. wipe it over and immediately buff it off.
Shiny bits sprayed with Ford Panther Black (the rest to do followed up with blue hoses)
The wheels are actually straight 1980s. They were designed for Mk1s. Only rust on the car is the drivers door. Floors are solid rockers are solid. Under the flares are solid. It's got the awesome brown/tan interior. I'm going to run steelies on it I'm just waiting for the tires to arrive. Can't afford wheels for it at the moment but I'm probably just going to run Ronald turbos or some rep CCWs. I just need to get the seats redone the padding is gone.
I don't know about how they were designed for that car specifically, but I just read it up and I just thought :wtf2:
They were introduced in '75!
In my mind though they were the defining 90s cheap aftermarket wheels. My brother started to buy these Tuning magazines and pretty much everything that wasn't equipped with ATS Classics had ATS Cups instead. These cars were either boring or past a certain level straight out trash!
I still find their design too roundish for those 70s angular lines, but I already commented on that when you bought them for you Rabbit. :P
I L_O_V_E that interior btw, I'm a sucker for red, brown or green seats, dashboards and carpets. Shame about those door panels though and be very easy on those window winders!
Stanley, a long time member on this forum and a team member of the lfs drift team Saiko D, had one of those cars! He used to post small video clips of getting it sideways in parking lots, one even had a police officer making an appearance!
KE70 are hard to find over here and more expensive. Well the Charmant is even more exclusive. So me and my friend will have to only two registered in Belgium.
I gave the guy 1100€ for it.
Nearly no rust underneath, under the doors, the sills, the pockets in the boot
Just some interior cleaning en give the car a decent wash and polish...
Looking forward! I've been looking for bike carbs to put on the 4K engine for noww. Sounds soooo good!
