Good work, you need to do some height adjustment downwards

I would like to but I don't think my insurance would :(

You could fit taller tyres and reduce the arch gap. 185 60 14 look and ride nice.

and replace the carpet with paving slabs..../s

I might pass on the slabs, been looking at a set of coilovers though, might be a while till I can get them though

 

I'll probably get a steering wheel and similar products before the coilovers as my student sized budget is small

Taller tyres! - that's some lateral thinking!

Just some discrete eibach springs or Gti springs should drop it just enough to help the looks

Sneaky springs are the answer.

Load the car up with three fatties and eat a parmo every night.

Move the plate back or smooth the recess.

You should have taken the boot handle out as well, solenoid to a switch somewhere and live with it.

Also, I love it when people paint their brake pads

I'll get round to doing it eventually

I didn't have the tools at the time, and one of the previous owners decided to add a lot of additional sealant making a simple job much more complicated

Eh, I wanted a red and black theme within my budget so that's what one of my mates kept suggesting

Few major things since my last post, I controversially decided to get a cherry bomb, which is just a little bit louder than I thought it would be

And I installed the quick release wheel I bought, it feels nice to drive and being a little smaller in diameter I definitely prefer it to stock

So it's been a while and I haven't done much really, I've got my horn wired up and my resistor in for my airbag, it passed it's MOT yesterday with only two advisories which aren't worrying as I already knew about them, also I got some coilovers but I'm yet to fit them as I haven't had the time, and I finished painting covers in my engine bay.

Also did my hood as it was a mess before, still yet to polish it and t-cut overspray

Also started creating it to be gold starting with the rear beam and interior, still need to do the boot but that is a quick job

I don't get the correlation between rear beam and interior.

Is it code for something?

It was just a start, I have more of the underside I'm painting, the beam was just a start

Just going to be the one to say it as Rich's detailed eye may have missed this one.

The C Pillar trim - why didn't you remove that and paint behind it?

I figured the same as the seatbelt.

So much more could have been removed.

This is my first car and I'm only 17, I'm using this as something to learn on so mistakes are gonna happen frequently, so long as it is different and unique I'm not too bothered🤷‍♂️

Detail will be for my next car, this one is just a practise run😂
