Kuro project

Post by Nutty_Chappie »

Kuro project!
She needs some love. Been sat since 2015
55k miles (ish) can’t remember exact number
TN07 JHD
Starts and drives (well, did drive ..tonight it popped the slave. And my patience with it!!) so she needs a new home as I’m never going to find the time to sort this! I’ve got a slave to go with it. I’ll fit it if I get chance….
Starts really well hot and cold
Bodywork is ok, few marks but ok! bootlid very rusty!
The sills arent too bad, have some surface rust but no big rusty holes.
Subframes are the same, have pics under it If you want to see
It’s had a full set of calipers and pads fitted and pair of front struts and springs and a set of oil cooler lines
Seems too good to chop up. Headlights look brand new and are the chrome kuro ones.
£800 Ono - I wouldn’t recommend driving this !

Well, no clutch and not been on the road since 2015,
Number plate is here- if you want to drive it then that’s fine with me

pretty much the same thoughts I had. Always wanted a Kuro, but I still have my Nemesis to fix up!

But it's such a lovely black. I am actually considering whether I should get my Nemesis repainted in the Copper red it is meant to be, or the Kuro black, cuz it's so nice!

Was a great idea at the time! Lol

Any bids before I deal with all the messers on eBay?

A couple of things to clarify. Once the clutch slave is fitted could you arrange the delivery to Cheltenham as you may have better contacts for haulage than me.
Having only just got RR54 going ok I must be mad but what the hell are you supposed to do when retired?
Middle of July would ok for a delivery slot but I am not in any rush for the car.
How and when do you want payment?

Blimey
I'm still on my 1st one....


that said its had quite bit replaced, welded up , resprayed, rebuilt etc etc

and you boys don't hang around do you? I was recommending this car to young lad at work , but sounds like he's missed the boat

good luck with it Chris, having got 1 running obviously you need a spare ;)
makes perfect sense to me
