My k11 is going for some welding tomorrow to get it back on the road.
I have a 1995 super s 1.3

Killing a micra is easy! Rust, throttle body and afm all can write off a car.
Have them in stock and drive like you stole it very quick round town and on the back roads with a few brave pills.

Yeah there has been previous welding on the sills on this one. Not much super s micras come up these days I think they are a cool wee car to bomb around in. Really low with nice alloys really suits them get a few pictures up!
