Right...... I was just gonna start a new readers ride thread but as I've already got one and its got photos of my loop how she was when I first bought her I figured might as well just update this one smile.gif

As you can see this was how it was when I first got her and if you looks further through the thread this is how she is now, I will put some more photos up of bits and bobs that went on along the way but if you follow THIS link it will take you to my project car thread that is much more detailed.

GO TO THE LAST PAGE OF THIS THREAD FOR MOST RECENT DETAILS AND PHOTOGRAPHS.


1999 v reg 1.4 16v Sport Lupo to 1.8 20v turbo 423bhp

Not sure bout the headrests it is on a 1999 V reg so they may have changed them on later models....

chris260 is runnin those rims. think they might b 1 piece ones though. they r mint.

and the old solid headrests r better than the new ones which have holes in them.

Stunning lupo,

Only thing that lets it down imo is the badgeless grill, would look ok if the bonnet infill was filled and smoothed,

Lovely lupo though, :) What cage is it please?

Thanks,

hehe yea I know its been like that for farrr to long now but it will be done in the not to distant future! I've been meanin to get the bodywork done but I chose the roll cage over bodywork to do first, I was hopin for all bodywork to be completed by e38 but that hasn't happened :(

Its an omp cage with harness bars and door bars added onto it, thank you very much :)

not a massive fan of the wheels, looks to euro for the car.... needs some Comp Mo's IMO : )

Other than that, top work fella... mint!

I'm torn between euro and track car :s lol! I do like me zenders but am definitely getting some more racing orientated wheels just to stick on for when i do track days and sprintin as these are far from ideal with lickle 175 kumhos on! :(

Looks so stealthy top stuff

cheers mate its always been my sort of aim to stay quite low key and have decided to resist the tempation of changing the colour to something that stands out when I get it sprayed as I like the stealhy understated black :) despite my mate keep telling me to change the colour, lol!

any engine bay pics?

was looking into doin this aswell,where u located wouldnt mind poppin and having a closer look at this :)

yea mate there is pleanty of pics on my project build thread HERE if you wanna take a look. I'm based near tamworth in the midlands but will be at e38 if your going to be there :)
