Lewis' Soft Blue Lupo

Recommended Posts

First off, just like to wish everyone on Club Lupo a happy new year!:D

and now... im in need of some help, i have got myself some new indicators (philips silver vision) and headlights (OSRAM nightbreaker unlimited) i thought i would have a go at swapping the indicators but the furthest i got was pulling the electric cables out and that was a pain itself as it didnt want to budge! after that i couldnt seem to get the rest to move or see where the bulb goes in! pictures would be greatly appreciated or if someone could send me a link in the right direction! :rolleyes:

Not a great deal happening recently, i got my indicator bulbs fitted, mud flaps fitted and finally all the wheels painted.

Glad it all looks the same now! :D

Dont seem to be very active on this anymore, but i'll try get more posted up! ^_^

since christmas, i've set too  and tried to get stuff done, just little things. Yesterday i found myself painting the rear pop-out window grommets. the passenger side is just drying as i type this up and will be fitted again soon!

Looks like its drowning in lacquer but it wasnt! :lol:

I have been speaking to a guy that also used to own a Lupo, he offered me a set of JBW starmags for a very good price! They were recently refurbished and repolished by himself. I am considering them for "summer wheels". He also works as a painter for Volkswagen and i may be getting my bumpers resprayed soon to get rid of the scratches and different coloured paint that the previous owner has clearly tried to cover up.

Heres a picture of the starmags...

They look in good condition, but im not sure what the tires are like, but they shouldnt be too hard to replace! :D

Thanks for reading!

So finally after months of not having a working drivers side window, i got it sorted. This meant i could put my  G3 wind deflectors on that i have had now since Christmas!

With the weather being as British as ever... i got round to cleaning and waxing on the few decent days that it wasnt raining... I used DATWAX and its the second wax i've ever used and i love it! The smell is awesome and its incredibly easy to apply and take off again!

Thats all for now! ^_^

Similar to what I have on mine. Might be worth checking on AutoBulbs Direct. Type in your reg and they give you a little thing that you can change on a car and it tells you all the different sizes.

Its been a while since i last updated this! Not too much has happened really, had a rear hub replaced at the end of august for the new wheels to be able to go on properly, some more interior plastics were painted cream, i got a new headunit for my birthday and finally, my horn doesnt want to work when i push it and thats about it really! If anyone could give me any ideas as to what to do about my horn, that would be appreciated! ^_^ (Already checked fuse and its fine)

And now.. Pictures!

So the weekend just gone has been spent in my grandads garage going over the paint with my machine polisher. Very proud of my results to say im not very experienced with polishing by machine! The paint just looks 1000x better than it used to without all the swirls and a lot less scratches. 

Last week i also fitted my wiper delete from ' Kill All Wipers' and it makes the rear end look much smoother. Glad i dont have a wiper to pull any stickers off now too!:lol:

Have a few pictures...

IMG_0918.JPG

Sticker stack will be updated as i go to shows, i like to buy stickers and save them until i find somewhere to put them!

IMG_0919.JPGIMG_0909.JPG

'Broke Boys' sticker was took off the front window and replaced with...

IMG_0910.JPGIMG_0911.JPG

A chrome 'Keep it clean' sticker!:clap:

I forgot to take pictures after each stage of polishing but heres a few from sealing the paint...

IMG_0914.JPGIMG_0916.JPGIMG_0915.JPGIMG_0917.JPG

Autog Glym Extra Gloss Protection was used to seal the paint and a coat of Datwax to top it off.

And after all my hard work and all the effort put into it, i decided to treat myself to a nice chinese for dinner... And of course i took a couple of pictures.

IMG_0920.JPGIMG_0923.JPG

Photos dont do the paint any justice, looks a lot better in the day light as well. Need to get better with my photography skills but it was only a quick picture! ^_^ 

Cades wheels should be going on again when the weather gets better, along with new discs and pads!
