Thanks very much That was actually really nice and has made me feel a bit more hopeful! So yesterday Henry got some new bolts And I got an MAF sensor out of the boyfriends dads Arosa TDI. Its on

So Henry is now officially on the road! Is in serious need of a clean, final touches and his very own wheels finished!!

I know, I'm going to see what she replies today but if she's still being a pain then ill just go through insurance.

Looks great :) are the BBS staying on Henry?

If so maybe some spacers, make use of those arches!

Thanks!

Yeah they are, I've got some other wheels for Alva.

I know, it's one of those things on my list - I've just got a very long list between the two cars lol

And they came just in time for the lupo mega meet :)

We gave Luke a very special boot build to prove how much rubbish he has in his car!

Lupo looks nice. Colour really suits it.

Can someone do a report on the meet? Would be interesting to see.

It was quite good, would have been nice for a bigger turn out but for a first it was good :)

A couple more photos that I've found:

Hmmm I've had some interest in the BBS...I'm not sure if I should sell up or not.

On one hand I love them and its very rare to find a set of black editions in original condition but then again, on the other hand I've had them for about 2 1/2 years now and I'm a bit bored of them...

Opinions?

Okay so quite a big update...

I purchased another car so I could steal bits and sell it on as standard...yes I know, 3 lupos probably means I have a problem...

So the changeover:

Wheels off and suspension back to standard

Interior out

Smoothed bumper removed

It just needs a few new parts (such as window regulator, door cards etc) and then it's all set to go to its new home!

The transformation of Henry - excuse the dirty car!:

Wheels on

Interior in

Unfortunately the new wheels have made my car far too low...scraping my subframe every 10 seconds!

So for now the BBS are back on the front until I can raise Henry a bit ^_^

as james said! those sills are bent :o

Pat the sills are bent on Henry as Ben crashed it at some point.

The sills are fine on the new lupo and it can be jacked up fine.

COOKIE MONSTER!

NOM NOM NOM

Everyone loves a bit of cookie monster! ^_^

Ouch those poor sills, mine are bent from a previous owner using a trolley jack on em. Probably why Henry's are too!

Lovely interior though :wub:
