Default Icelandic VTR - big update!!

hi all, have been a member on this forum for a while now, it was this forum that made me want a vtr

i have been a member on here for couple of weeks now and i think its about time i made a thread.

i wont be doing much modding yet, as i dont have a job and im in college.

i have my test on tuesday so if all is well i will be rolling around soon

anyway my plans are:
Lower 50mm front - doing tomorrow
Cat-back exhaust - when money allows
Strut Brace - Christmas time
Refurb Alloys - Christmas time
Get rid of all the scratches - when i can find a touch up pen?
New door badges - Ordering tomorrow
i <3 speedbumps sticker - Ordering tomorrow
induction kit - when money allows
smoke fogs and side indicators - when i cba to get paint

Already done:
Lowered on the back 60mm? (not sure previous owner done it)
Fit Clarion CZ200E head unit
iPod holder
Bee Sting Aeriel

theres not much more i want to do, its not bad for a first car.

heres some pictures anyways:














thanks for looking, comment and criticise would like some more ideas as well

i will update this as and when i do things but i expect progress to be slow

Your 17? Good luck getting insurance on it, you'd be extremely lucky getting a quote for under 3K..

Still, looks good buddy, i've always like icelandics

the car is currently on axle stands as lowering it didnt go to plan, the first side took 4 hours to do! the drop ink wouldnt budge and screws rounded and then a screw on the back of the brake disc? wouldnt budge :/

got that side done then put new pads on then the other side wont move so going to get the grinder in it tomorrow and hopefully get the other side done

heres a couple of pics of the car as it is at the moment they are pretty shit pics and i also got a pic of my head unit and iPod holder





Thanks for looking
