Hello there,

Let me introduce myself as Rick, living in the Netherlands and owning a nice 1984 SA310.
Im going to copy my whole 'project'-topic off a dutch club page and translate it to english.

The infamous to-do list:

Exterior:
- Mount RGA Bodykit (Done!)
- Repaint bumpers to black
- Install US Module (Done!)
- 3000k colored headlights (Done!)
- Remake Suzuki badge (Done!)

- Optional: mount right mirror (Done!)

- Lower it
- Change the wheels (Done!)
- replace bushings thingys

Interior
- Fix drivers seat, has a rip
- Place nice but simple invisible audio
- Place center console to store casettes (Done!)
- tint rear windows
- Optional: Place Original steering wheel (Done!)

Enginebay:
- Replace ugly worn out things for new shiny ones!




June 15th 2015:

This is how the previous owner sold me the SA310.
My buddy managed to tick some euro's of the asking price because of the following things:
- Driversside window doesnt open (falls down)
- Rust! but not much, thank the lord
- 1 rear shock is done for

June 18th 2015:

I picked this baby up!
As a Suzuki enthusiast my buddy cleaned the whole car including the engine bay and replaced the fuelfilter. nice!

June 24 2015:

I picked up some cool stuff from another clubmember in the Netherlands.
He had some things lying arround and i wanted it!

- Right side mirror (Mounted it on the spot)
- RGA Bodykit (Eighties! yeah!)
- window mechanism so it can lower again
- Different steering wheel
- Cencer console
- rear shocks

Stuff!

Mirror!

Center console!

June 27th 2015:

I replaced the steering wheel. It was a bit thicker... but the color didnt match well so the old one has to go back on.

Image

Also did the air filter while i was at it.

June 28th 2015:

Dip it black please!
Sprayed the whole lower side of the car black. looks good, practical and eighties!
Ready for that RGA Bodykit!

Juli 4th 2015:

I cleaned the whole inside of the SA310. It was really neccesary... Man this thing looks mint!
Result:

October 20th 2015:

Since i was out of a job and still wanted to do something to this beauty i redid the badge on the front.

November 30th 2015:

Today i was able to pick up a very cool set of wheels.
Very oldskool (Built in April 1981) and looked good.

Image

December 13th 2015:

I wasnt really fond of the color the wheels had... so i went to a buddy and repainted them... man this looks awesome!

That is a beautifully preserved MK1. I appreciate how Suzuki used to spray their cars with exterior body paint color even in the engine compartment, unlike the colour primer finish they use in newer (less old??) versions.
