All right after 4 months my EB get's delivered monday

After 4 months of getting the stuff around from my insurance I finally got my money and have been looking for a car the last 2 weeks.
I was out looking for an EA MPI 5sp and didn't have much luck every car I found was to expensive or crapped out.
I did manage to find myself an EB series I 5sp for $2200. 202,000 kms central locking, no multipoint and a blown head gasket.
Thankfully my mate owns his own workshop and is going to replace the gasket and convert to multipoint for $800.
On top of that I'm getting a ED fairmont Ghia door trims and seats for $200.
FINALLY I'll have a decent car again!

pics will suck ass to begin with as it's just a boring white stocker but the first thing getting done is stereo (nothing stupid just cd, small sub and 4 good speakers) than lowered, than exhaust, then mags. In that order thankfully because of mates in the industry shouldn't cost me much.
(that dude just looks cool, loving all the new smilies!!)

I'll pick it up (provided the AC and Heater works ok) on monday and take to my mech for the work that day. While it's up there I'll be installing the Fairmont Ghia interior and then taking some shots.
I'm thinking I may respray the bottom of the car the same colour as the bumbers just for something differant.

You could do the interior yourself if its going to cost you money, it doesnt take that long to do, and its very easy! Well easier compared to mi EL Ghia interior conversion argh.

Yeah I am doing it while I wait for him to change the head gasket (once again that's only if the ac and heater are ok)
Absolute piece of piss to change that stuff.
