Hi all,
Haven't been on here for a while due to work. I'm starting a project that should last about 12 months with a parts list that would make anyone cringe! So I am after advice and parts, this is the pre list that i will also be posting on my racing page! Any help is much appreciated... the further the better for parts and advice eh!

Thanks in advance.

I have/had every version of this car! The Boxer is my ultimate favourite! She is one of only a few in the UK. Apparently only one runner in Blighty right now!

Hey Rome solution-

This sounds exciting!

Have you a garage to do all the work in? What is the destination for the project? Is it going to be a road legal track car, or what?

I'd love to do a factory restoration but this car is crying out for loads of mods! I'm doing all the work on the drive but I live in a quiet cul-de-sac so the neighbours are used to me playing around till the sun goes down. I have three 145's, the boxer is the only one without a lightweight flywheel and staged clutch, this will be the first mod just to make it feel more responsive. Better breathing and a full custom exhaust (probably twin pipes as its a boxer) will give it a proper sound. I'll try an keep this thread up to date eh! Road car with attitude is what i'm aiming for.
