my lupo 20v turbo conversion

Recommended Posts

hi there guys , bought my self a little 1.0e lupo about 12 months ago to run round with plans to convert to a 20v. this time has now come after sorting another car to drive as a daily. got daisy from a bury 1 owner from new well looked after etc and at bargin and the name daisy well that was what they called it and had stickers on the boot lol.

i do have afew pics when i got it , first thing was to lose the wheels and get it lowered , porsche teledails and coilovers came .

now to work out how to upload pics

any ideas guys

started by removing the front end ,then to the engine and gear box.

once this was done wanted to give a good cean and remove subframe etc

i purchased some g60 front brakes been full refurbed and painted pink :yes:

polo gti hubs stripped down and powder coat new bearings fitted

red stuff pads

grooved disc

subframe off and powder coated

new track rod ends

new inner tie robs and boots

new bottom arms and ball joints

anti roll bar powdercoated and uprated new bushes

new bolts from vw for shocks hubs subframe etc

lupo gti rear beam purchased from thissy once i get it guna strip it down for paint and new all

o the joys of putting it all back togeather and start mounting soon.

back soon with update and hopefuly pictures if i find out how to get them up .

That's barely any poke I wouldn't bother with camber, maybe some slightly stretched tyres - 185/45 nankangstyles?

How about wheel colour....I'm guessing pink...? haha :thumbsup:
