    Swiftkids Corrado VR32

    Right, seeing as im supposed to be doing college work i thought this would be a good time to start a members thread. I been meaning to for ages/years and i just keep forgetting.

    My previous car was a red 1.8 16v in my signature that i loved/hated with a passion. It broke every other day, must have gone through 4 engines from various different non wragging related incidents (cracked head, water pump going bye bye, oil pump, snapped cam belt etc etc.) but i still loved driving it when it was working. I once changed a cam belt in a layby to get me home. anyways pictures of said car...



    then bought some new wheels, after a giant scare with spacers and longer wheels bolts




    So i read up about r32 conversions and thought, hmm... ill have a piece of that and bought a corrado with a blown VR6 engine and bought the audi 3.2 engine to throw in it. Then i had a rethink, its a 100% standard car, standard brakes, standard suspension, paintwork needs attention and im wanting to chuck 250bhp+ through it... not a good idea and i really do not want to throw all my money at it straight away. So that engine went to fund some coilovers

    Anyway, enough of that, heres some pictures!Touch wood been an absolute pleasure to drive since i got it on the road, few little niggles but other than that im absolutely chuffed to bits with it!
    Can't find the day i picked it up but day i got it in my garage, theres hundreds of pictures so im just going to put up a shortened set.


    work started

    engine nice and pretty after cleaning etc

    off to my dads where he has a little more room to work on my car than my garage lol

    engine back together!!!

    havn't got any pictures of it all back together before KW's happened

    and as it is now



    next on the list is a proper detail, but it has come a HUGE way from the pink i bought it as.
    few plans for it but i just want to get it running 100% and replacing every little part thats rattling etc
    enjoy!!!

    Shiny shiny prefer the first wheels over the borbet tbh. Nice either way.

    What was the scare with the spacers and wheel bolts?

    Re: Swiftkids Corrado VR6

    when i bought the car it had standard shocks and cut down springs so i replaced them with coils which strangely enough rubbed on the tyre so i had to get spacers to run the wheels. put them all on and one day as i was driving my wheel started to vibrate more than usual, so i pulled over to find 2 wheel bolts loose, 1 missing and one actually sat on the wheel itself... i think it was partly my fault for not getting longer wheel bolts

    i did love the mille's but the previous owner absolutely ruined the car and had hit a curb and buckled em so they had to go.
