Hello everyone, thought I'll start a build thread as I've started doing a few things to the old girl :) I've owned the car for about 9 months and resisted till now but im getting the bug to start modding haha here's my car as it stands now.......

20140208_163216.jpg2014-02-08163203.jpg

The first thing I had to do was sort out the nasty foggy headlamps. Quite easy to do and would recommend doing it if yours are foggy. All I used was some 2000 grit wet and dry sand paper, some rubbing compound that I got from Halfords and some Autoglym super resin polish. here's a before and after shot...

Thought ill try something while a wait for a little bit of good weather to fit my coilovers so I tinted my fogs yellow. I did order some yellow fog lamps to go with but ordered the wrong ones :mellow:

I like the yellow fogs :)

 

Good work with the headlight restoration... would recommend waxing/sealing the headlights as well to help protect from UV fade..

Looking good :).  I've always liked yellow fogs.  Gives the front end some character. This weekend is suppose to be pretty good weather by the way so get these coilovers on ;).  Also if you're going low I'd recommend taking the helper springs out before fitting them.

Biased much Adam?  ;)  :lol:

 

Things looking well so far bud. I also like the yellow fogs i was going to tint mine yellow when i had fogs in. When i get a set of genuine ones i might try it  :)  What sort of tint did you use and was it hard?

 

Headlights turned out well also  :Y: Looking forward to seeing it dropped. Any wheel ideas?

Wind them all the way down and if you don't like it wind it up a tad.  That way you'll get maximums lows that's suitable for you :D

Hahaha cheers guys :) I like your thinking danmaytee. Will definitely be going lower at the weekend ;)

Im on the lookout for some wheels atm just unsure what to go for lol really like the look of some bbs ch's. Personally think they suit the car really well.....

The ride is really good at the mo! Not harsh at all, but probs will change once it's lower and not on balloon tyres lol
