Laser blue open air on air ( time to move on )

Recommended Posts

hey all, picked up my 1st lupo the other day, its a 2005 1.4 sport with open air roof, 25k on the clock payed £3750 for it, And i love it so much fun to drive and is a pretty nippy car alot better compared to the corsa c i used to have.

anyway a few pics of it and plans for the future

i know it needs lowering alot and will be ordering coilovers this week

plans will be

. tidy up the bodywork get a few parking dings sorted and scratches followed by a complete machine polish (im very fussy when it comes to bodywork and paint lol)

.coilovers
.tint front lights and indicators
. spray some interior bits the same colour as the car
. fit standard grill and spray the badge black with cream insert and rear badge cream along with engine cover
. headunit and tidy intstall with either drink holders in boot or a mini fridge (for cans of monster rockstar etc for when im skating)
. new backbox (a nice shiny one)
. set of new wheels for the summer
. smooth front number plate recess
. pressed plates

thats all i can think of for now, so let me know what you think

cheers Lermy

very rare colour along with it being very rare to have an open air with a sport......probably only a couple in the country with this colour/roof combo i would of thought. I'm jelaous! would love an open air.

seen this for sale looked a bargain aswell, in this colour and open air if done correctly this really could be on eof the nicest lupo's about

dont colour the badge chrome either black it all or leave it chrome, adding colour to the back of it looks tacky as hell

If i was you, just leave the crome, maybe colour code the back of the badge.

Put the front badge back in to, at least untill you get the half moon filled

fair play.

All coilovers go as low as each other (only a lupo) from what i've heard over the years.

i've got ap's, they're decent. come highly recommended

right the coilovers are on but the rear shocks are wrong just been made to fit am trying to get hold of the correct ones so i can go lower but atm this is as low as i can go without having stupid amounts of rake lol, its quite handy though with this weather as im not hitting huge lumps of ice in the road

still have 30mm on the front to wind down and when i get correct rear shocks adjusters will be coming out

painted my rear badge bit of colour but its subtle and has satin finish
