Mate I love how clean this is. Any more comments from Corsa nobheads just look at their car, laugh and walk away.

i love purple haze beads pretty well too..............

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

Give it a try its worth a shot thats what happend with mine anyway mate

My arches have now been rolled :thumbup: raised the front a touch as ive broken 2 exhaust mounts and the flexi has come away from the cat but anyway :censored::angry2: Today was nice so took the opportunity to give the car a good detail :shifty: took both the front wheels off for a clean up behind them as they had a thick layer of black grime behind them :surprised:

So today became a bad day, started off with a horrible noise coming from the passengers side front wheel so decided to take the wheel off in college car park borrowing someones jack quickly, span the disc a few times then it stopped, bolted wheel back on all is well until i remove the jack and it has collapsed my sill :censored::(:doh: drove the car round the car park to check the wheel, then boom oil lamp flashes up and beeps at me, somehow i have no oil, of to halfrauds to pick up some oil, put the oil in drove it home, managed to hammer the sill back in to place sort of not perfect but it aint no show car :shifty: so after all this drama i decided the only option was to lower it more :thumbup: Anyway cant wait for players classic at the weekend! Polished up my wheels a fair bit and give the interior a good hoover and shampoo. Some pictures :shades:

Really am sorry for neglecting my thread, i will make a point of keeping it updated over the winter! Always posting things on instagram so follow me @craigmahoneyy for more regular photos! So ive been using Kleenfreaks detailing products for a good year now, i was emailed by them and asked if i would be on there stand at Show & Glow which i was delighted with! So the prep began!

Decided that i needed a cleaner looking rear number plate rather than a plastic yellow one so i figured as im not running a front plate all the time with the smooth bumper i would spray up my pressed one and run the plastic one in the window. Turned out okay in the end!

Next i began sorted the paint work out, it was pretty swirly and had been doing my nut in for ages to treated myself to a dual action polisher and some pads and set to work.

null_zps52ac458e.jpg

Got the bumper off the next weekend, popped it out the best i could slightly split the paint but it will do for now :thumbdown:

Fancy some new wheels now, also took all the camo bits off looked so tacky compared to the new interior, lot of plans that will happen over winter so :cheeky:
