hey guys

just put a deposit down on a coupe this afternoon and going to pick her up tommorow lunchtime.

its an old gen 1 but looks great, and drives great too. once im finished with it too it will look even better lol.

Any reccomendation what i should do first on it?

i need to replace the spoiler as its got quite few scuff marks on it, but probably stick with a standard gen 1 one to be honest, gonna have look round now at some. but other than that im not sure what i should do to it first so any ideas would be very welcomed. oh its all standard on there ar the mo j ust so yous know :)

If you need to replace the spoiler (not just repray) then an F2 evo one (rare) or sharkfin (even rarer) would be the ones to go for.

lol at Daz ... I'm going to do my 1.6 approach, you can also do stuff like re-painting the interior, the dask and door panels etc. looks great if done right ... you can also dress the engine up a bit, paint the engine cover, silicone hoses etc.

to add to Rik's comment I'd recommend getting the front and rear strut bar (I swear it helps in cornering) and for the springs then the Eibach Pro Kit springs OR you could get the MeisterR Coilovers that are being sold by MeisterR in traders section atm.

then there is subtle stuff ... maybe LED interior lighting etc.

(There is also rebadging ... you could make it into a Tiburon and go the american way ... also, go to rdtiburon.com and check out there forum, especially the DIY section, some good stuff in there ... also, check our step by step guides on the forum and main site, just so you can look at improving the gear change as it makes a massive difference in driving the car)

God there's a lot you can do to Gen1's and 2's these days lol :rollin

:rollin

Yeah, sorry Daz - I have to disagree, mate... I could've spent a small fortune on ours if I'd had the money, and thats not just replacing the rusty bits either. :lol

I know there isn't a great deal of chrome, alloy or other stick-on bits you can buy, or a great choice in bodykits etc - but there is plenty to keep the owner occupied on the tuning, minor styling and handling front...
