now i dont know much, but from what i could see i see a 172 ph1 on 16 inch alloys.
well a few hours pass and i got the guy on the phone and i bought it sight unseen.
the price was good and it had loads of brand new goods on it.

few days pass and i come to pick it up.

to sum it up:
brand new KW V2 coilover set,
new powdercoated 16 inch oz f1's with "new" but old tyres
new tie rods
new Carbon Loraine pads
front and rear strut bars
Gr.a PAS and Aircon delete
Oil cooler
Espace v6 filter
"cams" dont know which but i'm eager to find out.

the advert didnt have a mileage reading on it but the guy told me "60,000KM" or about 37K miles so without a doubt i went to look at it.

turned up with no battery as the guy tried to make it in the back but i had a battery with me so i gave it a shot. 61,053KM, BINGO!

loaded it up and left.
(i know the straps arent on the "correct" way but the wheels are getting fully restored either way so i didnt really mind.

it's in my shop now waiting to be fixed up and enjoyed.

first things on my list are:

remove:
DIY exhaust for a BTB catback
remove both strutbars
replace cambelt and auxbelts along with other items
new tyres (either AD08RS or PS3's)
fit the pas system and aircon back
fit the foglights back
paint the new Ph1 bumper i got with the car
get the battery in the front again
Polish and ceramic coat it
remove all the dents
snappy steering wheel
and other things i find along the way


hope to keep you guys entertained with this.
cheers,
Senna

Update 1:

Done work today:
New cambelt and auxbelt kit, vvt solenoid, sparkplugs, vvt dephaser, Elf 900sxr oil + oilfilter, new petrol filter, waterpump and crank pulley.

Then drained the petroltank and cleaned it. Then some 98RON BP ultimate went in.

Fired right up, some smoke at the beginning but hey, after 11 years of storage it was pretty great. It appears it isnt cammed after all, no problem for me since i'm making it oem.


I dont know how the video function works on here, but i've attached a video and a link

I've made some new discovery's aswell. Some that arent too pleasent.
Apperently it was once tried to be converted into a non abs car.
The pump and its wiring has been swapped out for 172 cup gear and the powersteering and aircon have gone too.
There is an oil cooler on the car and there are external guages on there.

I dont like that at all so everything is going to get binned. I want it as oem. So i'm at my unit again on saturday after my schoolexams and going to check on the cars and spares i have for :
Interior loom
Engine loom
Abs loom + abs equipment

Then i'm fitting all that so it can be once again oem.

I'll update it in this thread.

Update 2:
Getting the interior out

Finnaly got the interior out and came to the conclusion that its missing the airbag computer, the insulation matt, and loads of wiring. Not something i'm very fond of.

Then i noticed the floormat isnt blue/green but rather black. They installes a kangoo one in it. So i think this car was once tried to be turned into a racecar of some sort, yet failed.
Luckily i own a couple ph1's for spares so thats all good.

Now to figure out how to tackle all this nonsense.

That Laguna steering wheel makes my toes curl its that ugly!😂
it sucks big time, the project turned into a ''small project'' into something big. i'm probably going to let this project settle for some time, first finish my swiss champion and the vee and search for some parts. it's a little sad thats for sure but thats life.

For the people wondering why the title says 'again'.
I own 2 pearl black ph1's that i plan on restoring, 4 if you count the breakers aswell.

I'll upload some photos of my 1 owner, 40K miles, original paint, accident free, FSH ph1 here:
