My new mr2 3 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 38
During my endless quest for a black rev 3 turbo i spotted this jap rev 3 N/A and said id go for a look

was in a sorry state was parked up a year a front caliper was sticking

pad's worn down to the metal

side of the car and one of the wheels destroyed in rust particles from the pads

interior was mouldy and headunit was flung in the boot

battery was gone

engine lid prop,slam panel and spare wheel clamp were missing

indicators had pieces cut out of them

the body work was bad and in need of a few touch ups

and had these big rotten wheel nuts which made the wheels look a bit cheap

i wasn't sure about it at first but said id take a chance as it was goin cheap enough

heres the pics after i gave it a wash

i took out the bad piston in the caliper cleaned it and changed the pads with a new set i had at home and the brakes are perfect

done a good job on the interior aswell and its now mint

cannot be happier it turned out to be one of my best buys i ever made i thought the wheels were rota's and they turned out to be genuine te37's! :)

pretty sure the tom's sideskirts and back bumper is genuine too

the carbon bonnet is like new

has a japspeed exhaust and decat

also has cobra springs and a few more small bits

air conditioning even works!

here's the pics after i compounded,polished touched up a few bits and then waxed the car
