My GTI build to now


Recommended Posts

After buying the car in November i introduced my little GTI Paula to the forum

http://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/97789-paula-the-gti/

Since then a few changes have taken place, with more plans to come for the year! Here is a list of things done to the car off the top of my head:

Spax RSX coilovers

White LED sidelights and Numberplate lights

3L steering wheel

Pioneer AVH-5500bt head unit

New red GTI grill strip

Sharan 90mm rear badge

Private reg

Cambridge Lights

Front wheels: Rota grid v 7x15 et20, running 5mm spacers to clear the brakes, 195/45/15 Toyo Proxes

Rear wheels: Rota grid v 8x15 et0, camber shims, 195/45/15 Toyo Proxes

Here's car as it stood at the end of last week after a good wax and polish

After going to UD at the weekend ive been inspired to get onto the engine bay, been looking into these Forge Caps

Without wanting to sound stupid, I know it says they fit the 2.0 VAG models, but would they fit the 1.6?

Had it fully stripped and dipped? Not sure on the process but if it's how it sounds I'm assuming that's the only way. Strip it down to the shell and dunk it like a biscuit.

Haha... Sadly no. It's done exactly the same way you'd spray it normally
