Mini Update

So spent this morning putting on my new 'clean' plates. Never was a fan of the drilled holes and holders they were in.

UPDATE

So in the week i was browsing ebay, and came across a mk6 golf gti gearknob and gaiter virtually brand new!! for a good price. So snapped it up and awaited for it to be delivered.

It arrived yesterday, so today cracked on with fitting it, had to swap the gaiters over for my lupo one, was abit tricky but got there in the end! :D

I have bought a new gaiter, which will arrive in the week, but for now i am happy with it and i now know i can swap it over quickly enough.

Since i cleaned my seats, i stupidly forgot about the steering wheel :blush: So got to work on cleaning that too.

Nice work stef, the seats look much better. The leather looks cleaner and less shiney. What products did you use?

Look around for a polo 9n3 gti handbrake. They are leather with red stitching on the part you hold. Same fitment as lupo you just need to swap the little button inthe end of the hand :) think dealers do them brand new for £47 when I went to order one. Occasionally find them on eBay too.

Cheers alex! That is the handbrake i am gonna go for :thumbup:

I used 'Race Glaze' leather cleaner, awesome stuff. I used a damp cloth to go over the seats, used a brush for leather seats to work the product and then wiped away with a damp micro fibre cloth!

Unfortunately i don;t have a camera so my iphone doesn't do it much justice and they look alot better in the flesh!

Next big purchase will be KW coiles :)

Really nice mate, some good little touch's on it. Can't beat a bit of OEM+, I like the gear knob but mine being a 5 speed will have to have a look for another one...

Took a quick break, as the ice cream van come along, ready to fit the check straps on both doors after.

With the ice cream devoured, i set to work on replacing the check straps, pretty straight forward. only took the one picture as i'm sure you get the idea smiley1.gif

And my girlfriend bought me a companion for the lupo :blush: (More to do with me liking turbo rather than the car not err having one haha)
