Updated 25th February 2009 at 22:57 by Richy25988 (Added: Lowered rear 50mm)

Thought id start one of these. Got the car back in september 08 off a friend for £1400. Low milage 43k, VTR alloys, 6 months MOT, 3 months tax... and loved the colour and bodywork was imaculate! Heres the first photos after a quick wash.




First thing i did was source some GTI doorcards:



Then next up was a white centre console and vents:




Then came my first accident. Hit a round island in a car park at about 30mph and bent the wishbone! Firstlt motor factors gave me the wrong one:

But was soon changed. Old one againt new, you can see how much it moved:


Next up was a false floor for the boot with a window for my amp:




But thw window soom became useless as it had a sub above it


Smoked indicators anyone?:



Then got hold of a pair of bucket seats and subframes for dead cheap (£80!!) So slapped these in:



Red Rocker cover:





Then kept with the white theme and sprayed my grill red and chevrons white:




And finally it was time to begin lowering!
Spax VSX Kit 40mm





The result...



Some awsome new brake disks, what a difference!





And thats how i am today, with some pics of how she stands now:




Got the rear down today, 50mm, with major thanks to Wolz off here cheers mate, not got any photos yet as its dark, but will do asap
