Thread: Yellow v6 roadster

  1. #1

    Yellow v6 roadster

    Recently picked up the v6 roadster.

    1mz with extended 5th gear and LSD.

    Loving it, I would describe the acceleration as being shot out of a cannon:icon_mrgreen:

    It's a 2001 plate and was a woodsport conversion quite a few years ago. The first owner done quite a good job of crashing it so it ended back up at woodsport for repair and was sold to Sam in Glasgow who had it a few years but hardly used it.

    Had it a few weeks now and love it:icon_twisted:

    The paint is still nice and bright and came up good after a quick shampoo.

    The hardtop needs repainted as it was red and I need to find side strikers for it, can wait till summer though when the prices of the roof kits go down.

    Plans are

    to get the car a full service since it's sat for a while

    J spec front lip and side skirts
    Jspec front nose badge
    Facelift side vents
    Facelift side repeators
    Rear bumper spats
    New alloys
    Facelift rear plate fillers
    Enjoy driving it


    Will try and get some pics up.

    Ah, so that's what happened to Wills' old 2. Sounds nice Donna, does it still have the rather nice and unique Hayward and Scott twin exhaust on it?

    Thanks for the pictures Paul. You made a grand job of it

    Olber - it will be staying up here, I keen to get to meets etc so if there is anything local going on let me know.

    I've got pics but I'm using an iPad just now and really can't work it. Pics will be up soon.

    Can anyone give me advise for the best oil for the v6 and filters etc?

    Cheers

    Donna
