About a year ago I bought my GTV as a project car. The bodywork was all straight even though the paint job is very dull. The drive train is excellent, gearbox feeling solid. The major issues with her are:
Rear end needs flex bushes
Front shocks badly worn- I'm getting Koni Adjustables. Cost nearly the same as factory shocks.
Brakes needed replacing: I fitted race spec discs in front with fast road pads. Very good, I'm very happy with it! Major improvement.
Left front wheel bearing noisy (Stops humming when sweeping through a left-hander).
I want to fit 18" wheels and 235/40/18
I want to fit a twin exhaust conversion.
I've got Cup fenders and skirts, and am awaiting the delivery of the black Aero front scoop.
I now want to know: Where do I begin with my project?
I know I have to fit the bodywork when having her re-sprayed, and at the same time do the rear valance cut-out for the second exhaust outlet and this virtually means fitting the exhaust after the paintwork, but as far as the shocks and rear suspension goes: Do I first replace suspension bushes, then shocks?
What other mods can I have done while I'm at it? Will an induction kit (Like CDA) work with a free flow exhaust to produce a few extra horses?
