About this blog

My name is Andy Salisbury, and I live in Lancashire, England

 

So I bought my 02 three and a half years ago. It started out as an auto but I converted it to a 4spd manual. I thought I would start a blog where I I can post all the things I am doing along the way instead of adding it all over the forum.

 

I have modified the engine with twin 40 Webers, I had the seats re-trimmed, I have lowered it and added several sets of alloys. I've replaced a lot of the brake system lots of other things. I am now in the process of doing some bodywork, changing the front end to chrome by replacing the centre section, fitting new wings and adding Alpina lip arches. Here are pictures of things I have done up to date. I have just picked up the 1968 J.A.Pierce Magnesium wheels today and tried them on. I think they look so cool.
