    My 2002 VW Lupo 1.0E (and proud)...NEW Porsche 911 seats :D

    Post by xXx-Amy-xXx on Thu Feb 18, 2010 2:59 am

    Thanks for taking a look at my progress thread...
    My car is a 2002 VW Lupo 1.0E I have had it since December 2008 and I am in much love with it! I didn;t think I would end up adding any modifactions to the car, but some things don't last so where do I start?
    Were does anyone start? Exhaust, smoothing, coulour codding, wheels, painted interior? Anywere?
    My first Modifaction (if you can call it one) was painting my roof and wingmirrors both is White... I was happy with the work they had done at Elite Bodyworks. And would go to them in the future. Also I don't know why I did it but a White sunstrip (I know bad move).


    Heading to York for Fast-N-Modded paintballing... My car had taken a large bang to the wingmirror . At this point I didn't think nothing to it but then, looking at it had a large crack right down it. Other then getting a new one and respraying it, I then taken the 1" squae Black stickers to it creating my own design and it was pretty tricky. But I am very happy with it.

    My small effect didn't stop there... Then came the roof and silly stickers I picked up out of Max Power . The roof square's are 6" square, not to big and nor too small. The flowers also (I love them)



    I had steel wheels for a long time before I got these one's on... Borbet T's 14" 7J front, 8J rear on streched tyres. Unfortually I didn't have these long and was back to my steel wheels. I had taken my car on trach during the life of the Borbet T's, wrecked the tyres... but on a up I had fun in my 1.0 on the track with Evo's





    Unhappy with my rear bumper I had smoothed... I then bought a new one and started chopping it up, it did look bad until it came into shape. My idea behind this was to go smooth all over so I thought of smoothing the rear number plate off, but were was I going to put it so it became actually legal without it being in my rear window with no numberplate lights? I chopped the recess into bits and created a smaller numberplate, looked rather smooth bit still actually legal, as I moulded a rear light into this too.



    The rear bumper never did get put onto the car until during the ice, my car went sking and made love to the front end of a parked Astra. And this is when there is an excuse to smooth isnt it?
    Work did being to transforn the Lupo...













    This is were I am with progress today... Just got some rear pop-out windows arrived today so will be putting them of after the respray.
    Welcome to comment good, bad or ugly.

    Thanks Amy x

    Update:
    Got x2 of the Porsche 928's (7 slots) on as I only have the 2 15mm 4x100 - 5x130 adapters... Streched tyres also. I have been e-mailing around for some more adapters 20mm or bigger as I would like a bit of "poke" on the rear and also get my camber sorting out too...
    After messing about with new bolts I got what I wanted... 10x normal 10x longer bolts at 2 each.
    My adaper is normal bolts going into the hub but coming out is to bolt the wheels on is wider bolts... what a bugger!
    Running a 10mm adaper on the rear also...










    Comment always welcome on my Lupo thread

    Over to you,

    Thankyou Amy

    Too much poke and your gonna catch on the arch and it will turn into a war between how much poke you want versus how low you can go on the back,gonna look sweet on the Porsche wheels though,who owns the mk6 then,I recognise it from Greencore,we valet a few cars on there and seen that car there a few times and think it looks ace on them wheels just needs to be a bit lower.
