    Blackberry 16v

    I picked this one up around a month ago from Karmannski




    (sellers pictures)
    It is a 95 2.0 16v in fairly good condition, especially the interior. Just a bit of bodywork to sort out but nothing that detracts from the car.

    Since collecting the car it's just sat in the workshop whilst I've been sorting any niggles and fitting some other parts.
    My Borbets are on replacing the original wheels with winter tyres




    TT wiper arms fitted





    I've replaced the knackered glass with blue tint, still heated





    The bonnet catch was not fitted and with sheared bolts, now refitted






    My vdo gauges I bought about five years back have finally seen daylight, all wired in and working well



    10mm hubcentric spacers on all round to get get a bit of clearance for the Brembo stoppers


    and the best bit


    Front end all blacked out using lamin-x and black grille badge



    Uprated loom in and hidden up, with genuine plugs on it and Osram Night Breakers




    and finally for now, KW coilovers on to replace the shocks and springs with a bit more of a drop


    Any comments or questions, fire away

    Nice, where did you pick up the mirrors? Stick on or clip on?

    I've been in the workshop sorting out the ride height today





    The front arches are 585mm from the ground and the rears are 590mm. It's looking fairly low and I think I may have to roll the arches
