ok...here we go! lol
bought a MR2 in Feb, needed fixing but all parts with it, just had to be put together. cost me £230, paid an extra £30 to put it through the mot. passed but needed headlights aligning etc did the corrective stuff myself (had to buy handbrake cable) then went straight through.
started like this:
Interior needed sorting:
sorted out the painted wheels! and tidied the car:
Then i drove to Derby to buy another MR2 for £300. cost me £50 in fuel to get it. Was a bit rough but good bits on it. it looked like this:
Swapped over some parts to mine, ie TRD steering wheel, Apexi exhaust, 16" wheels etc. Also sold all the other parts in the Derby MR2 on ebay like the subs, amps, spare interior, another set of standar wheels etc and made about £140
And then sold the Derby MR2 for £350 on ebay.
So my MR2 looked like this now:
Then put it on pistonheads for sale £900 or swap and ended up swapping for this:
yes it was a bit chavved! (bloody bonnet) but was a good drive as low mileage. In fact i would say i enjoyed this car for the 2 weeks i had it. I would have another....but standard.
put on pistonheads for £1200 or swaps and got this:
plus £250 in cash! so really when i think about the car is probably free really as i got my initial £260 back plus more.
The MR2 is chester le street and the pug is in darlington.
Sorry to say the cougar is on pistonheads for cash or swap.....but to be truthful i dont mind if it dont sell as im quite attached! but watch this space! lol
