Default New S12 owner from Belgium

Hi all,

So another new s12 owner from Belgium, and probably registered here for the same reason: they are rare as hell in our parts...

After owning a few S13's and a S14A, I really wanted to finally find me an S12. So I found this MKI with the FJ20E engine. She's in a fairly good state for her age, will need some bodywork but nothing out of the ordinary.
The most challenging part will be to source the missing parts, and especially the parts for the engine (needs throttle body with tps and AFM).

But I like a challenge, and to be honest all of my projects have always been challenges :-D

Plans are to restore the S12 for the most part, maybe 'improving' some stuff like suspension and brakes.

Here are some pics from when they delivered the car:






The MKI taillights were cracked, so got these instead for now

Looks good but I can say from experience that finding parts is an absolute nightmare...

Still haven't found everything yet of course...
