Bouncy Bouncy Hydro's On! - Dan's Black Lupo 1.0 *Almost Finished Sportster!*


Recommended Posts

I figured I'd best get one of these started seeing as I've had the lupo for nearly 2 years now!

bought her back in september 2011, already lowered with sport wheels, tinted windows and a spoiler, pics below

shortly after I got some Lenso BSX's (yeah fake splits I know) and got these on. Had to raise her a little bit due to un-rolled arches and lots of scrubbing

Also got my boot build done while I was waiting for the wheels!

then while prepping for players last year, this happened, bloody VW jacks :(

after this came arch rolling, tyre stretch and more lows

and also a bike rack!

and then this happened, so off they went and on came some new ones!

next plans are:

smooth front bumper

change wheels (got an idea in my head at the moment)
get small dent sorted

drop her off to Rayvern at the end of august to have my hydraulics fitted

so yeah there's my lupo!

Yeah so it lasts a fair while!

So not a lot has happened to the lupo, mainly because ive been saving for a new toy! Been after a bike for ages and finally got one, its an '05 883 sportster, 20k miles which is a moderate amount b

Old coilies combined with an already blown shock and **** roads I think! Wasn't gunna change 'em as im booked in for hydros, but once the spring snapped I was sitting about 2 inches lower that corner and driveshafts were knocking over every bump!

Well, due to being an absolute ****wit, i ddnt get my tracking after fitting the coilies and my front 2 tyres ended up like this in 3 weeks!

So, £98 and a week of waiting for tyres to arrive later i have some new ones! Fitted a lot easier this time now as well, well chuffed!

Yeah so I had a call from Ray yesterday to say the hydro's are all done and dusted, car's going up and down as expected, just waiting on new top mounts from vw as mine are a bit shagged, hopefully to be at the stealership near him today

so woke up this morning all excited ready to pick the car up but no, no top mounts :( gotta wait 'til Monday or Tuesday now due to not being delivered to the stealers! Gutted cus I wanted to be out bouncing today!

FLUSH:

It's virtually on the floor at the front, the only thing limiting the movement now is the width of the wheels and tyres due to catching on the arch lining!
