Rich's lupoo GTI


Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

thought it was time for a bit of an update, after having done nothing to the car for a couple of months i thought id treat it to some new poly rear bushes and re-paint the rear callipers while i was at it.

took the rear sub frame off and was greeted by a nice bit of rust on all the welds.



i treated the rust with some hammerite Krust and a bit of hammerite black spray, good as new lol.


new poly bushes went in a treat




when it came to refitting the brakes i found out the the damn bleed nipples had seized solid in the callipers so i took it to the garage today, got a phone call later telling me that both bleed nipples had snapped! which i half expected to be honest. got straight on ebay and ordered two new rear callipers, bloody nightmare.

don't want that to happen again so iv got some stainless steel nipples on order and some braided brake hose.
