And this is how she stands at the moment :(

The wheels are off, ready to be replaced with my recently refurbed Pentas, and i'm also planning on swapping the suspension for my Honda Access shocks and Tein lowering springs. Once this is done, I'll be looking for a suitable replacement engine, and will most probably swap the gearbox for my M2T4 LSD tranny :twisted: I'm really looking forward to getting her back on the road, but I just need to get a bit of time off work now :roll: :lol:

Here's a pic I took the day the Lude came into my possession, thought it was pretty cool :lol:

I haven't got any major plans as its already spec'd to my liking, but I will be making a few updates over the next few months ;)

No dude, everything I have on my SiR is already on the new Lude, even down to the ATR clutch and XTD flywheel combo 8-) I will be selling off a few bits to fund the engine transplant, but i'll be replacing them with standard OEM parts. It will then be sold as a bog standard SiR lude for cheap ;)
