most of you will know my black orion , how ever i also have A GREY one that a bought 7 years ago with 48ooomiles one owner for the grand sum of £50
iv owned 19 orions all mk2s over the years and this one had no rust at all it was the best. i built the car myslf making the reAR s2 type ARCHES and fitting them after this with help from my brother resprayed the car . then i needed more power so bought a rs turbo to remove all the oily bits



we just sat both shells next to each other and swaped all the bits over

after this i fitted the mondao16 alloys and the car looked like this





i knew at some point the battery tray would need doing and the end of the cill section so in october i stripped the car ready for resteration
its not that bad battery tray 2 cillsections and some surface rust







looking a bit sorry for its self but will be sorted

plans are to get the car welded up preped and painted colour will be the same and the kit will stay off

thats all for now ill keep you updated with the progress

Ohh and btw went down woodsy`s monday and they had a early (possibly a e-reg) complete red mk4 XR3i down there if you need any bits. I assume it had only just come in. Didnt get a chance to ask Larry about it as he was running around like a headless chicken!
