hi all, been a while since my last post , because I've been busy building a second gti convertible conversion. i was going to keep this car original as it is one of only 16 imported into australia by suzuki in the city ,adelaide. i could never see this car being a collectable and its way to boring to drive with a sluggish 1.3 16 valve sohc auto , with poor fuel economy for its performance. so i decided to make a gti convertible the way suzuki would have built ,with total original gti parts.

ordered a cheap and basic limited slip set up . mixed reviews on it . the lsd was meant for gti but after i took the casing shoulder off on the lathe for max. surface area , the fit was out of tolerance according to the kit instructions. ended up sending the kit back with my diff measurements and got back a far better fitting lsd kit.
