Hi, I'm new to this forum and to owning a swift. I recently purchased my first ever one, its a 93 plate 1.3 gti in very good condition with only 75k on the clock :P

the previous owner had it mot'd then sat in storage for 3 years without moving so it is in desperate need of a service, some clean fuel and a good run out.

I'm not keen on the rear wiper and have been toying with the idea of removing the rear Suzuki sticker and having the '16' on the side done in red.

here are a couple of Photoshop's I done to show a rough idea

:)

Rare car in the UK, less than 50 on the road. And yours looks like one of the better ones!

decided to give the engine a clean today, easier to see what I want to change and where I want to go with it now.

Nice car man! Especially for a UK version! Great to see one kept alive and well. Good luck with the project. Always keen to see what another Suzuki nut will build!
