Hey skrilla
Good pick up. Hopefully won't be too much of a pain to convert. You'll still need a manual tailshaft, pedals etc. Is that slight bonnet/panel damage I see on the right corner of the car?

Sounds like you have this sorted the right way. Btw I was unable to locate any sunroof seals that you asked about a few weeks ago. Oz spec Piazzas didn't come with sunroofs anyway.

KMAC springs all round. Lowered 2 inches @ the rear, 3 inches up front. Koni yellow adjustables all round. This was how I bought the car off the previous owner. You'll have to get on the kmac website and see if they can make another set. If they can't get back to me and I'll give you the spring measurements so you can get someone locally to make you a set.

As for shocks I'm pretty sure ypu can't get yellows any more, but I could be wrong. Have a chat with archangel because he's currently in the process of sourcing a set of reds or blacks or something, and he's looking into alternative front springs too (cheaper but equally effective alternative).

Lenso Eagle 16x7.5 mags with +20mm offset, which is the correct offset for Piazzas

Hopefully hear back from Kmac on Monday. Don't have much by way of small interior pieces. I would suggest Wedgenut or elky on this forum. Failing that I would try Clive from IPTOC in the UK.
