So I uh..... Did a thing.
Nothing to the car but I uhhhh bought another car 😂
She needs some TLC but I have most of the parts to get it back on the road.
Its a 2002 Protege 323 SE (Sports Edition) wich was a limited edition model here in Australia. They were all blue. Compared to my hatch wich is a 2003 Astina 323 SP20
The differences are the rear spoiler, interior has a different cloth trim and the headlights have a black bezzle from factory instead of chrome.
Needs a starter motor, rear engine mount, new headlights (wich i have, just need to change bezzles as they are chrome), front bumper, steering wheel, gear knob, RH Tail light. The clear coat needs to be fixed as the hot Australian sun has clearly taken its toll *ba..dum... Tsss* pun intended.
Picked it up of Facebook marketplace for $1300 AUD. Saved it from going to the scrap as the owner was going to do if he couldn't sell it.
