I have come back to ask more advice from the "cortina gods" about what you think I should do. I will be coming to some money soon $4000 and want to spend it on my beloved tc xle but I don't know where to start, as $4000 isn't really that much when your talking cars.
At the moment the whole car is very tired with everything needing some attention the main areas are.
Motor: the standard 250 pre crossflow is pretty sad and I want to put a 250 injected crossflow into it. I have the motor and was running fine when removed.
Body: paint is reasnoble but the panels arn't very straight. 3 out of the four doors are dented as well as the left front guard. I have the panels to fix it but would need to be painted and fitted. I was really hoping to do a colour change from factory aqua to kawasaki lime green.
Interior: is also shagged and at the least would need new underlay and carpet and seats recovered I was hoping to do it black with lime green highlights but couldn't unless the colour of the car is changed.
Eventuly this car will get the full treatment and have everything done but that won't be for a few years so what ever I do now has to count. I was thinking get the injected crossflow fitted and running with a c4 trans then move to the body get it straight and paint the new panels standard colour then seeing what's left for the interior?
What do you think ?????
