Palma Red Evo 8 FQ-300

Hello all

Thought id start a thread for my car, mainly so I can keep a rolling visual of changes made.

I got the car a few months ago now, however due to work and the time of year ive only driven the car a handful of times to far! (Cant wait for summer to come around).

The car has some modifications, I do like my cars to look factory where possible though.

My next jobs on the list are to tidy up the car, strip and re-seal the underside, get a few little bits painted and change the exhaust that's on there as I don't like the way it sits (no idea what it is came on the car) and put the badges back on the boot that I have sourced. I Have already spent a few days cleaning the inside of the car so that's how I want it now, I did a DAB double din install at the same time also.

Cheers all!

The interior looks great for the age of the car tbf, might look into a bit of leather tlc and restoration but other than that all good! Red on red suits it well..

Car wasn't from NI, London way in fact.

Cheers all! Just in the process of dressing up and tidying up the engine bay currently. Looking forward to getting to some shows this year!

Very nice mate.

Can't beat a Red Evo, especially an FQ300 Evo 8.

Thanks for above comments!

A little progress update regarding the car, done a fair few bits this year and through the summer. The car is now tucked up for the winter with a few bits planned for next year which include:

Front bumper removal, spray all mesh to freshen up and clean the engine bay at the same time. Fit the rear strut brace, radiator brackets and few other bits and bobs I have ordered but not fitted yet. I also plan to remove the rear diff, subframe and underseal that area as I have already done the rest of the underside.

Below are some pictures of the changes to the car and outings from this year, I am hoping to use the car a bit more next year and try to get to as many shows/meets as possible!

































I also undersealed the car, this included a lot of work with a underside de-grease, all arches/underside taken back to metal, rust converted, zinc primed, under sealed and cavity waxed. Just a few photos of the hundred or so pictures I took, this was done as I opted for the black dinitrol under seal, so just in case I ever sell it will give a good idea of the condition of the car before I started and as I went along.
