Hello all,

Thought I'd properly introduce myself and my reason for being here.

Only had her for 3 months but slowly getting there. She's had more work under the bonnet than outside, mind I have started with a few keys pieces to start out her look from stock.

So far:

- Wiper delete

- Euro metal pressed plates

- Audi style side indicators (the cool moving LED ones)

- Bee sting Ariel

- Poolball gear knob + self made matching door pins.

- Wind deflectors + rain protectors for side mirrors

- Lupo rear light switch

 

 

As to do:

- Coilovers + some watanabe style wheels (15"x8J). I'll want to do a lug nut adaption and then have extended red lugs. Haven't seen it yet so can't wait to see it on mine.

- Wooden riveted steering wheel + Boss kit

- Rear window tint (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

- Double DIN with up to date sound system (will probably swap spare tyre for sub)

 - Attach polo 6n cup holders

- fix odd broken bits in interior + change head lining

 

I have also got organised a respray as there is quite a bit of flaking but also just to have a final bit.

Make her look brand new as I'll be using the original LP3G Flash Rot....once all work above is done...

 

 

Pedal box is first though.....damn you Arosa and your pedal box.

I've never quite understood the "bidet" removal on our cars, the wiper lies flat so what's the problem

Unless you've got deadlocking, put your door buttons back to standard... stops your car being nicked.

I like the clean and smoothed option with these cars.

But also, I plan to have a business posted on my rear window and given it'll be a vinyl sticker, I didn't want to have that moment where I hit my rear wiper and in the process remove my contact details! 

and for the sake of style, I'll keep the door pins. But truly appreciate the heads up so thank you bro!

Do you know any good names for second-hand coilovers?

The Ebay ones have changed quite a bit in price since I had my lupo....

Yeh don't worry, my arse remembers the ride quality. Might do springs.

But none of this can be done with out the pedal box sorted out first....someone give Rich a prod.

Rich will do it if you can get to him.

I’ve never seen the mirror rain protectors before, I like them.

Thanks man, I'll give him a nodd.

I went to Saitama in Japan last year to witness the mountain drifts - and ALL of them have those little rain protectors on so brought back a pair. 

Think it's a nice accompaniment to the wind deflectors.
