Well, at last here are some pics of my Gora. As already said by Cat, a massive massive thanks to my best buddy Gerard for his time, expertise and use of his garage for the swap. A big thanks also to Colin for his help and also Mr Loafster for supplying the Freddo bars and cans of Bru[:)].

There are still a few finishing touches to be added like the GLi RCRC rear lights, headlamp washer caps, colour coded rear badge and euro stubby mirrors, which will all be happening soon.

Sorry about the car not being clean, just not had time to wash it yet and the weather was awful this morning.

Look forward to your comments.

Do you have any other mods planned?

Looks great. [Y]

Bet your glad it's done at last!!!!
Kevin, I'm absolutely lovin' it mate. Gives me a huge grin every time I see it[:D], keep looking out the window at it. Couldn't wait to get it done after seeing your Gora down at Ultimate Dubs.

My mate got me it made up for me from a local guy he knows.

did u fall over taking the first photo??????

Not quite buddy, although was totally knackered today after all that manual labour you had me doing yesterday lol. Hats off to you and your dad sir for the work you do, especially having to wear those overalls every day, my tackle was glad to see the back of them!

As for selling you my xenons, as you would say "I'll crack the jokes"[;)]

Mate, the chrome mirrors are going. I've got a set of euro stubby ones going on real soon.

Got a few other mods happening, like my GLi rear lights, colour coded rear badge and a set of Bora Sport dials all sitting waiting to go on.

Where did you get the Jap spec bumper strip out of interest!!!!
Got this off of Jason on here, a nice subtle little touch thats a wee bit different.

Lookin sweet Andy, if not a little dirty... hope you're taking care of that freshly painted front [:p][:p]

A little dirty??? Its just from the windscreen down thats dirty[:p]

A bit annoyed tonight actually as I wont be able to drive it for a couple of days, as my coil spring has totally given up the ghost tonight. Squeeking and grinding noise, so no driving tomorrow until it goes in on Wednesday to get some new springs fitted all being well.

Not really had any looks just yet, although probably not noticed as I've been paying attention looking for pot holes to avoid for my poor suspension[:'(], but cant wait to take it into the dealers to see the look of their faces.

Hope I've covered everyone's questions here and thanks for all the positive comments so far.

welcome to the club, car looks great
Cheers buddy! Was trying to find out which one was you down at Ultimate Dubs when I seen your car, so we could have a chat. Hopefully catch you and your Gora at some future shows.
