    If the vin says red lupo and its on a red lupo whose to know . . . but yeah technically illegal "Ringing" I think you an retain both identities and Q plate the one thats on the road but i dont know why you'd bother, Ive never really got the whole re-shelling thing . if you got 2 cars one has good mechanics but shell is effed ant the other is mechanically pooped but has a nice shell , just put the running gear in the good shell and use that.

    Hello New here

    Not to undermine Wes's knowledge of lupos as I'm new here too but i'm fairly mechanically minded but if your not dont worry too much I think reverse synchros in alot of cars are a bit iffy I've had multiple cars where you have to rev it a little or select reverse a few times even my impreza some times will only select reverse with a crunch especially when cold, and I know the train in that car is all true. But also as Wes Says more specific details will help people on the forum diagnose the problem could just be you need to do a oil change/top up on your box or one of the issues mentioned before. ^

    15x8 with et of 25

    Elisa on here runs that size and I'm picking some up tonight the same size stuttgart st6's seems to be about the limit without archwork but i dont think you'll be able to go mega low I liked how Elisa's looked so I'm not too bothered about going too low ^ Elisa's Car
  17. So I was getting a bit sick of smelling fumes especially from the shitty tractors that are on the road to work so I decided to home brew a cabin filter for the Loup and it seems to be working pretty well. its pretty simple to do. Here's a link to the Filter Materiel I used. Pretty much just cut to size then popped some cable ties around so the blower doesn't suck the foam out of the cradle i cut it a bit big so it would wedge itself in there.
