This is my 1.6 CTI I bought a few years ago.
I intended to get it running for a summer back then and it only needed suspension bushes to get it through it's MOT.
But I've ended up restoring it instead.

Here's my progress so far.

So much want - I think cherry red is my favourite colour and I've had a hankering for a CTi for a while. This project is what I wished I had the time (and skill!) for.

Looking very good Alex.

Looks great buddy. Have you rebuilt the calipers with new seals, where did you get the kits from? What have you done to the brake discs, they look very silver?

Ebay Bigg Red seal kit.

Yeah, The discs were Shot blasted as they weren't that worn but very rusty.
I intended to paint just the middle bit with HT paint , but I figured the pads will ware away the paint.
I'll be watching the discs closely when I bed in the new pads.
I browsed other forums that painted the whole discs and they said it just wares it off.

I've progressed since and have more pics to folow when I get the time!
