Default Atchis MK1 Swift GTI rebuild

Atchi asked us to restore his Mk 1 GTI we agreed & picked it up for him, sadly like most MK 1 GTI's in the UK it was rotten to say the least. We searched high & low to find a new floor, even the local hardware shop didn't have one.
The only genuine Suzuki floor we could get at a realistic price was a Subaru Justy (Suzuki Cultus), so we set about making it fit, this is how it looks so far:





You cant buy Sills for the Mk1 Swift either, so we modified some MK3 Ford Fiesta ones to fit:



We don't have the time to remove the 4WD running gear & sadly the mounts are now for the 4WD gearbox. So Atchi will have to put up with having the only 4WD Turbo MK1 Swift in the world

Looks great!

Is this fitted with my new front shocks?
wheels looks OK but how is clearance?

Do I need to get any more parts for turbo set up?
I think I got an Apexi turbo gauge, so when I find it, I will send it down to you.

Cheers
Atchi
