Craigs Black 1.4s! | UD Prep!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone thought id finally post some pictures of my car after stalking everyone else's for ages. Brought my lupo back in may on the weekend after passing my test, nice little 1.4s in pretty good condition, 53000, 03 plate with only a few minor marks as to be expected. Can't really do much as in mods due to insurance so keeping it super clean for the next 6 months then hopefuly slamming it and getting a nice set of wheels! with Also excuse the crap quality iphone pics!

The day i got it!

Whilst the wheels were off i painted up the rusty brake drums and gave my arch liners a good clean up.

Very nice lupo, what plans you got for it? I've got a polo 6R aerial you can have for £10 that is almost as short as the one you have fitted but you get perfect radio signal :)

Looks proper clean mate. I'd stick the trims back on though, bare steelies look gash imo. Also, i'd be a bit weary doing work in it with just that scissor jack under it!

You might get a bit of hassle for the plates and hids aswell mate. There's been a few stories of folk getting fines with the ebay plates!

Sorry to be a negative nancy but apart from that the car looks crackin'!

Yeah realised those jacks aren't any good after a while :rant: haven't had any trouble with the HIDs and plates yet so fingers crossed. Had ago at smoking the side repeaters after college, personally think they look way better not the best job around the edges but from a distance you cant tell. Might end up just buying as a smoked set or orange ones?

Good work chap!

I personally think the steelies look better without trims myself.

Like what what you have done (bar the smoked indicators, to be fair) - keep it up! :)

Lowering has always been top of the list but parents wouldn't let me drive without declaring, prob best thing to do so once my insurance renews in a few months that's the first thing that will be done :D for now just trying to keep it clean and do little bits here and there :)

Loving the motor mate, I've seen it on Instagram a couple of time and its made me wanna get my in a good condition, I was going to sell mine but now it's booked in to get all the body work down :). It might be a idea to give your insurance a call as my might just declared his car lowered and his insurance went down so just give them a call and see what they say about collies or springs. Keep up the good work!

Getting pretty fed up with people at college hating on my car so much, people keep asking me why would spend so much money on cleaning stuff on cleaning a **** car and why do you keep such a **** car so clean or my nan even has car is better than yours. This is coming from a person who drives a corsa club with 2 irmscher stickers on the windows with a stuck petrol flap cover that's bent and half hanging off, never claimed it to be the best ever just like to keep it clean nothing wrong with that right? :wacko::rant: anyway some more cleaning pictures :thumbsup: plus gloss black interior handles are in :shades:
