Discs & pads have arrived, just hope I get chance to stick them on for the charity meet sunday. Wheel adaptors are on the way woohoo

G'day, just got me a 1.4s, reasonably standard...won't stay that way haha Here she is after her 1st sticker & a set of pseudo-BBS borrowed from a mate's SORN'd MkII Golf... Wheels cleaned, tyres

They are slightly more sensible but still suitably 'Koopy' haha

So Koop as we're nearly 4 months into this year, what happened to "next year's wheels"?? ;)

Next (now this) summer's wheels silly ;)

Funny you should ask, I've had a test fit on me lunch today...

Adaptor on.

Pretty flush, should look tidy.

Arch gap. lol.

Some horrid scratches she's picked up being parked in the lovely Crewe :(

cnutbags.

Seeing all these peugeots and whatnot with red mirrors has inspired me to go for a it-could-have-been-a-special-edition OEM+ type look for the loop. The Wolfsburg edition plate surrounds may make their way onto it after all. Yes I am getting old & boring. It should still look nuff silly though. Soooo with that in mind I have a couple of new bits of s****y leather trim, here's the first one I've fitted...

Looked better in the pics on eGay :lol: Need to have a fiddle to get it sitting right. Pretty s****y though. Got one for the handbrake too, and I've ordered some samples for door card & headliner retrim.

And to finish on a high here's some pic from when it was all shiny end of last week.

Guess so. tw@s.

One quick fag break later & the handbrake gaiter thingy is fitted.

IMAG1882_zps5e365686.jpg

It's pretty snug, it took some death getting it on :lol: When it's a bit worn & the red isn't quite so bright it should complement the gear gaiter & steering wheel very well.

More test fitting...

IMAG1886_zpsfeb0a35a.jpg

Not bad.

IMAG1890_zps725c5ac1.jpg

Poke. Haha.

IMAG1888_zps2ab74787.jpg

Bit of room at the back though...

IMAG1889_zps41e18be0.jpg

...so I might be able to move it back & just drill a couple of new holes in the fascia adaptor.

Not sure whether to paint the fascia adaptor too. Hmmm.

Another cocking wing mirror smashed, on the Loop this time. Getting pretty bored of living in Crewe with its **** drivers who don't give a flying **** about anyone else. Grrrrr.

Not much happening with the loop, still need to get all my wheel bolts together :rolleyes:

The Polo's had 2 new brake cylinders though, zorst's blowing like buggery so it'll want a bit o' welding soon.

Well scotty will be pleased, the stickerbombed wheels are no more :lol:

Sold them to a local lad with a red 6n2 so they should go well & I might get to see them about which is nice :D

Wheel bolts will be ordered by the end of the week, hopefully get the new rims on next weekend, finally. Still need to finish painting interior bits & I haven't found the right cloth to retrim me door cards an' that yet.

Mrs Koop's minty fresh motor's going for a flexi & some welding next week. She passed her driving test this morning though woohoo :D

Thought I'd finish painting the centre console with the good weather this weekend.

Dog had other ideas.

Tw@.

I've just realised as I'm typing this that I can stick the knackered one in while I paint the one that's currently in the car, genius. :doh: Anyway I cracked on with the side vents which are a bit of an arse as I've been trying to keep the definition on the 0 & the little fella so I've been keeping the paint fairly thin on them, this meant I went through to the primer on the symbols when I keyed them up though so they had to get another few coats of black, d'oh! Not sure whether to pick the symbols out in white before I lacquer em for OEMyness, hmmm.
