The only obstacle is the hand break does not go all the way down. its not dragging but the light for the hand break stays on.
i can not cut the console down any more so the light my just get disabled.

You could try shimming the E-Brake up with some flat washers until the handle goes down enough to put the light out? :D :D :shock: :shock: :oops:

It is too clean and rustfree to even consider driving it in the winter soooo that leaves some time for "tinkering". It has already had swaybars installed front and rear. I have a set of lowering springs to go in with kyb's. The head is coming off soon for a little "massage" along with a cam. I will keep an eye out for a decent set of wheels while I burn off the new 175/70-13's that it came with.

For the time being my focus will be on econo oriented mods to help me with my 125mile/day commute but even the econo oriented mods will help the performance, you just have to have enough restraint to keep a light right foot to gain the gas saving benefits.

I'm sure I will be on here often looking for devilish changes to make. :lol:

You are right, a Vert that clean must have been Summer driven only. Great car, Great colour.....I'd ditch the side stripes. Happy Top Down Days!!!!! :D :D :shock: :shock: :oops:

Ps: A set of 15" Rota 8 Spokes would look Terrific (Saab 4 bolt pattern fit) I'm going to Pick & Pull to pull a set of 4 for $100.00 in silver for my Blue Vert.

those are great wheels. :wink:

To be honest, I am not really fussed with the color but the car was so clean and obviously well looked after that I could not pass it by. As far as the stripes go, I am old enough to not care about the "chick car" thing.

I think the Rota 8 spokes are just excellent and to get a full set for $100 has to be a gift. Here the wreckers want $50 ea for steelies! Do you know if the Rota's are available in a 14"? They appear to be a rough copy of the magnesium Minilights I used to have on my race Mini. (The old "real" Mini.)

They are of the Minilite style but Rota's are Made in Germany they probably do make them in 14". I have found that 15" tires are easier to come by I have 195/55/15" Michelin's on my white Vert and they work well. I think I'll go with a set of 195/45/15" Nexen N3000's. So you raced a Mini Cooper S, I had a few 1275's back in the day a lot of fun to drive. :D :D :shock: :shock: :oops:
