    Dragon green mk3 VR6

    I'm moving back down south in a few months and my poor old mk3 has been sitting in a garage for nearly 2 years without feeling loved.

    It was an 8v that's been converted to a vr6. It has no Mot and is SORN. It doesn't even run. I need to swap the starter motor over and put a fresh battery on.

    Body work isn't great as some div went out of his way to give it a kicking. But it was running for a short while after the incident.

    What is does have going for it are some choice parts.

    16x9 Schmidt Modernlines Concave - slightly different offsets for front and rears. They were powder coated at Top Marques in Fenton. Colour is anthracite. Can't remember the tyre size or brand but will look tomorrow.

    Vento front end although the headlights are not a matching pair.

    Recaro seats.

    Momo steering wheel and boss.

    Coilovers.

    Jetex Straight through exhaust.

    The engine will be a runner (when i change over the starter motor). No history unfortunately but it pulled well when it was running.

    There are a few other bits and pieces including various lights and trim.

    Ideally I want to sell the car as a whole. Could be a good project for someone.

    Price wise the car cost me £1600 2 years ago but not with those wheels. The wheels owe me nearly £600 all in. I will get some pics sorted tomorrow.

    Price is £1000.

    The sump is leaking oil. Checked the oil today and the oil is very clear.

    Tyres are Toyo Proxies 4. Loads of tread left.

    Success. Fired the beast up today and she sounds angry.

    Someone take this off me. I don't want to break it

    Some more pics taken today.
    Wheels are dirty and need a clean but are in mint condition. Brakes need a total overhaul after standing for over 2 years.


    Head-unit mounted in glove box. Front and rear aux. Rear aux is cabled to the centre of dash. Amp and Sub in boot. Deep sub bass that you can feel in your chest.

    I have a few sets of rear lights different colours along with various bits of trim. Car also has a Sigma full closure alarm that is working properly.
