  2. Hey guys, I’ve been lurking here for well over a year now. Been checking out some of the sweet rides here and decided that its finally time to write up a built thread of my own! I bought my Lupo in January 2012 for my first car, It was a pretty bog standard black Lupo 1.0 E. Got it for £800 and that is reflected in the paint work as there is a scuff on the front bumper and the paint is fairly poor all over and it was on 84k miles. This is the car when I first bought it: The car sat on the drive until March, when I turned 18 and sorted out my insurance. Straight away I de-wipered and de-badged the car, sorted out a cup holder as I had a gaping DIN hole in my dash and bought a Sony BTU3900 head unit. Didn't do much for a while, then some pop-out windows 'popped' up for sale and I snapped them up. Was a bit of a ball ache fitting them, Used a push-bike v-brake cable to cut out the old windows. Managed to shatter one of the old windows on the way out and ended up having to clean glass up of most of my driveway and inside the car as it sort of exploded. After the pop-outs were fitted I didn't. really do much else to the car for a while until a few months later I bought some coilovers. Didn't have much money so I bought myself some JOMS. Took the car down to a relatives garage when they arrived and had them fitted in about 30 minutes. Didn't go too low at first as this was the first time I was doing anything like this and didn't know what to expect. Shortly after on a routine Ebay trawl I found some wheels that I really liked on Ebay. They were Borbet Atiwes – 13 x 7 et20. Managed to pick them up at the bargain price of £170 posted for 5 wheels. Got them for that as they were in dire need of a refurb. I got them like this: After many hand blistering hours over the winter I managed to get the dish like glass. I held a newspaper up to it and could read it in the reflection. Once that was done, I prepped the centers and masked the dish and took the wheels to a guy I knew in the powder coating industry, So I managed to get them done on the side for free. This is what they looked like after the refurb: While in the process of sorting out tires for the wheels I also removed the bump strips from the car with a lot of help from my friend James Brown as I think it makes them looks a lot cleaner. I eventually ordered the tires and as you can see above I went for some 165/55 Nankangs. Headed over to my granddads as he has a decent garage and tools, got the wheels fitted and lowered the car to compensate for the 13" wheels. Since putting the wheels on I've not really done much apart from the (very) occasional clean and just generally driven it around. I've borrowed some roof bars off a mate to see how they look and I'm loving it. They have completely transformed the look of my car in my eyes. This is how the car is currently sitting taking as of this weekend at some events: At the Might Car Mods meet in Gaydon on Saturday: Just after when I got home and fitted the roofbars that I am currently borrowing: And this was yesterday at this years last MFN meet: Just a quick shot to show how it has changed over the last year or so: Well thats what I have done so far. Some possible plans for the future are: - Smooth the front bumper - Re trim the interior - Buy some of my own roofbars - Possibly paint the insides of my headlights black - Roll my arches due to light scrubbing - Pressed plates Thanks for reading
