Went out the other day and washed it again... and took more pics... Just coz i can, was trying to see if i could get some of the plastic trim (?) and stuff off so i could spray it blue or somthing, but i couldn't work it out...

With my other set of Wheels (Specialized Myka Sport Disc)

Took the plastic bits off the top (and put them back on again)

Then my dad took it out and told me the clutch is going (finally after 3 years) so its booked in for this friday, should get it bck for the tues... (gonna make me skint but hey ho)

Then today.... well... i... erm crashed it...

Photo0272.jpg

Don't ask how i managed it coz i don't really know.... had to phone my dad to come and move it coz i was too scared i was gonna make it worse...

What it looks like now ( with no t-cut before anyone asks)

Photo0277.jpg

So yeah i think i came off kinda lucky, and the other guy hasn't phoned yet so double yeah (touch wood)

All i realy have damage wise is:

A dink out the mirror

SAM_4813.jpg

A scrape along the door and bump strips

SAM_4810.jpg

A scrape on the rear arch

SAM_4819.jpg

And my rear bump strips hanging off slightly...

Starting to think the other guy maybe came off worse...

But anyways, gonna be t-cutting it soon, maybe even wi 'blue cut' but we'll see...

Sooo I finally got my car back! Along with a MASSIVE box of Thorntons chocs for all the hastle...(also discovered i can actually fit my bike in the back, which is good)

In the end up... after it went in for a new clutch... its never actually got one...

Somehow in the last 8 months i've managed to put a crack in the pedal box... so i put it in on the friday, he didn't start taking all the dash and stuff out til the monday (i ended up being on public transport all week which was rubbish) Then he encountered the Pedal Box problem... so the new one came in on tues afternoon... then wednesday... there was another problem, the brake spring had sprung! No idea where it went so he had to fix that... phoned him on the thurs... he was waiting on some 'Information' and i would get it back n friday... Which in actuallity i finally did!!

Drove it home tho, and i'm not very sure if it was me switching from a bike to car, or not having it all week but I'm possitive he just swapped the car for a new one... Drivings emense now... Have to double check 1st and reverse tho coz i can never tell which is which anymore (reverse used to crunch in...)

So anyways i have my wee car back... Taking him on a run to Edinburgh today (to see if he still hates the motorway, has a tendense to yell over 50..)

Pretty cool :)

just a few things.

1. TRY and invest in a better jack & stands. Widowmaker jacks are prone to falling over which would be dangerous!

2. Wheel trims are pretty simple to spray :)

Wish i left my car standard. done very few Modifications to mine but whenever i do do somthing, somthing else come along and breaks!

I have a trolley jack but i didn't know where the safe place to put it was... And spraying them could be a plan...

So Today is a sad day for me... No longer gonna be a Lupo driver tho i really wanna get a 'My first car was a Lupo' Sticker for the back on my new car... Which is a 06 plate VW Polo before anyone asks, in Blue its only a 1.2 but i'm sure it'll be just as nippy as good olde Loopy...

Gonna miss this guy, best 2 years of my life... :D

#WhyDon'tTheyMakeLupo'sAnymore???

Saving up for an Up tho as as far as i can see its just a modern Lupo so in a few years time hopefully i'll be proud to say i drive Lupo's Grandson...

That is all Peoples, I will miss being a part of this community it really is like a big family and we all wave to each other when we see each other.

I'll still wave to you guys (or salute i dunno which) if i see any of you so yeah don't be alarmed just little old me paying tribute to a beautiful piece or German engineering...

Live Long and Prosper Lupos!!!!
