    Default Just bought my first sprinter.

    Just bought an unmolested 84 Sprinter, straight body, stock everything with six months rego for $3000. Is this a good deal or what? Has anybody done a 13b rotor conversion and if so is it an easy fit? Never owned rotor or a sprinter so i thought I'd kill two birds with one stone. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated....

    My main thought is why can't there be enough sprinters to go around in Adelaide...

    Believe me it was more ass than class. I saw it in a shopping centre car park and left a note offering to buy it. A month later i got a call from the woman owner wanting to sell it. Needs paint and is in pretty ordinary mech condition but is a perfect starting point. I didn't want to buy a half modded one unfinished. Previously owned a evo 6 and a 450hp 180sx, but this little puppy is hopefully going to be my masterpiece.

    Paint sounds nice. Good buy.
    Riojin, what's wrong with black bonnets?
    Too hot, too many, too drift, too many popo?
    Just curious.

    Actually, I agree. Keeping the bonnet matched to the rest of the body just looks nicer IMO.
