My new lupo gtiiii

Recommended Posts

Hi all, some of you might remember my last lupo, was the whole stealth look with the black on black going on....

Sold it thinking I wanted an S3 and after a few months of driving the audi and drinking too much fuel I decided to get another lupo! Managed to find one local to me standard, gave it a bit of a spruce up and got it looking presentable!

First came the easy bits while the coilies etc were on order, so got some pressed plates with the British font and resprayed the front badge black.

Also de-wipered the rear and took the 'lupo' badge off the back while getting a passat badge for the boot as something a little different, much smaller than the orignal!

Eventually the coilies turned up so me and a few mates fitted them and got it wound down a few threads! Ended up looking like this....

And yesterday I picked up some RSL Cults 15x8.5s wrapped in toyos and put them on :) had to raise it a little to stop the scrubbing but once the arches are rolled i'll be down down nearer the floor! Got a few more plans in the pipeline but going to have to save up a little first lol!

Looks really smart! Amazing what a few simple touches can do. I'm liking red GTi's more and more!

Yeah no worries, just rub your badge down well so the primers got something to stick to, then once its primered your ready to spray :) I put quite a few coats of gloss black on as it'll get abuse from stonechips etc!

The coilovers are TA-Technic ones, just from e-bay from a shop in Germany and cost £250 with the postage, here's the link, hope that helped..... :)
