I cant remember if i evr did start a little write up of my car to date or not so here's one anyway.
When i first bought it nearly 3 years ago, very standard, very average...
I then resprayed all the faded discoloured trim plastic and the grille in satin black.
Then realised that the headlights looked like total garbage so got some new ones designed for the facelift post 2000 cars, luckily they fit...
Then super clear indicator lenses to match, and silvatek bulbs, much better.
I was then approached at work about an old set of alloys that were going to be thrown away, rays engineering split rims, in 17 inch, and in 4x114 stud pattern, winner.
Test fitment, tyre size hilarious but they fit, success!
So old tyres off, refurbed myself...
Arch gap looks absolutely pathetic though so coilovers ordered, in the mean time i can create the custom freer flowing exhaust system now all the bits are here, all she has is one small box and the 4 inch tip, and the cat obviously which has to stay for legal reasons, sounds top and goes a lot better without the 2 massive boxes and a resonator in the mix anymore.
I then fitted the rear coilovers as they came really quickly (as you can see in the picture) but couldnt do the fronts as i needed the later model top mounts, back to ebay then, just time to finish the exhaust tip, not bad for someone who's only used a welder a handful of times, welded it all myself, no leaks at all either, which is nice
And coilovers fitted and set up, just the way i like it
All that remains now is to do the respray, iv'e had the paint for over a month but am just waiting for a good enough day weather wise, i know its graffiti paint and so isn't really meant to spray a car but i have a few friends who have done theirs and it really has come out well so i'm gonna do it anyway, plus i love the colour.
That's about it really, i think ill be redoing the wheels in anthracite or metallic gunmetal once the repray is done but other than that i think thats all i really want to do, although the T4 engine would be nice haha
