triumph...tristan

Tristans 1981 Mitsubishi Sigma Wagon

5 posts in this topic

After selling my hillman hunter estate i wanted to find another suitable daily. I found a Triumph 2500pi estate, but that has turned into more of a project then a expected.

So then this sweet Sigma popped up for a fair price. Its pretty straight and tidy. interior is immaculate, Its only done 115,000.kms from new. still has the original 1600 4g32 4 speed Manuel.

Plans are to give it a cut and polish, some lowness and either some banded sigma steels or some nice alloys.

Does anyone know the best way to lower these cars? is there any other springs i can use? And is it worth converting it to five speed? is it a easy job?

I then fitted some 14x6.5 work equip 02,s on. The car needs to be lowered so bad its looks ridiculous at this height.

Thanks for all the help i have been getting from people.

Not to much has happend but i i gave it a quick little polish, it  come up much better than i expected. 

Also picked up some lowering springs the back looks good but the fronts still too high, so i might get the fronts springs compressed a little. its looking pretty cool tho.

Also test fitted some other wheels 14x7 Enkei Crossfever
