Car looks very clean mate and I love what you've done with the door cards/rear parcel shelf, good work. :thumbsup:

The only criticism I have is the amount and placement of stickers. I can't help but think there's too many on the rear that make it look a bit tacky, especially when you've spent all that time giving it a 'clean' look. Don't take it the wrong way, as I think the work you've done is great just each to their own I guess.

Got into the outdoor Show and Shine at 'Elsecar at the races' last weekend and surprisingly didnt take any pictures of my own car!

Since i last updated i've become a local nuisance with the help of my new shiny straight pipe, centre and rear sections.17690437_1941278826106347_1761057646_n.thumb.jpg.6058c4f24b6161387ad11cc708efb25d.jpg17692993_1941278812773015_1273639123_o.thumb.jpg.ff0e938cd1bf7a97ea3612be3e2af233.jpg

Hoffmann centre pipe to a sportex twin tip centre exit.nice and loud.:P

 

A few more pictures before the exhaust was fitted...IMG_1125.thumb.JPG.2a9dcb4d52240023931886606fb22a45.JPGIMG_1127.thumb.JPG.8ad583a08c49d6127d7babc1f29f0751.JPG17190586_1932384593662437_5455762382281273797_n.jpg.22af8583830e44465f6bd597b2a4384a.jpg

Nice picture from Urban Scrapers from Ultimate Dubs 2017! cleaned up the stickers a bit and added a sunstrip for the summer, gives me somewhere else to put stickers! :lol:

So as its raining today, i decided to have a look at what i can do to keep me occupied over the winter. I've taken off my drivers side lower door card as i planned to paint them gloss black to match the other parts of the interior, but i noticed its all held together with plastic welds? anyone got any advice on how to separate it because i really dont fancy trying to paint it with the speaker grille and pocket net attached! :huh:

Could just use a soldering iron and heat up the plastic welds so they melt again and pull everything apart , then when you're ready to put it all back together again just do it again, just heat up the plastic along the edges where things meet with a soldering iron and make you're own welds shouldn't need any plastic weld rods just spread the plastic across the gap as it melts to join it , do it in a well ventilated place if you can though because it will bloody stink 😂👍

So last weekend was spent building a frame to replace the rear seats, buying more material and putting it all together! Forgot to get a picture of the frame fitted but you get the point! :D

Its been a while since I've updated anything on here but back in July I finally went low! I've dropped it as low as I can go and still be able to get onto my driveway, the rear still has adjusters in but they should be coming out in a few months when some new wheels have been picked.:lol:
