Hoping I'm worthy of the title of a "project car" here, could be chancing my arm (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif) Had a forum in the members car section but I've had a nice few little mods done since the start of the summer! Less talk more pics, from the start a few original pics

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_0462.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_0461.jpg)

Eventually got a chance to do a few bits

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_1424_zps1ae55b78.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_1426_zpsbad1fb0d.jpg)

Thennnn I started prepping for Dubshed. Liked the badgeless grill but notches drove me up the wall so I had to loose it for the time being, Sprayed the headliner black (not easy at all (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) ), slammed it to the ground and purchased some I'm-comfortable-with-my-sexuality-fog-lights

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2080_zpsaffa7029.jpg)

Next came some boring mechanical stuff (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
It was idling very rough so I decided to clean out the intake manifold. Heres a stylish pic of what turned out to be a pointless job

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2187_zps229a8cc5.jpg)

That didn't work so I changed the coolant temp sensor, started her up and it was perfect !


Right about then was when disaster struck on the Naas road. Was doing my thang in the fast lane and the group of cars in front sped up for a gap in the road. The person on the inside lane now becomes "Asshole". "Asshole" decided to pull out in front of everyone, making them all slam on the brakes. Me and my pride and joy 6 cars back, didn't get the message until extremely late. Hammered down on the brakes and skidded in to the beamer in front. Bit of frontal damage, all fun and games and the rest is history as they say.

Then started the rebuild:

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2332_zps73b0a0cf.jpg)

Removed trims

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2336_zps7136bfc5.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2337_zpsb4875e47.jpg)

Cleaned out everything after stripping out, fitted some anni interior trims (with 2 window setup all thanks to Stephan), rewired subwoofer, and a few other bits I can't even remember (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2066_zps7ed301c2.jpg)

Got my hands on some 4D carbon fibre wrap (Thats not a scratch below, no idea what it is haha)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2133_zpsfb2c4073.jpg)

Then I went for a big change on the wheels. Decided to go with plasti dip blue, just in case I wanted to change my mind. Prepping job was horrible but we all know with modding, no pain no gain (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2143_zps66f152e4.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2146_zps80926d42.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2151_zps52117c88.jpg)

Finished product!

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2290_zps586c1616.jpg)

Also started a boot build (still pending at the moment!)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2218_zps63d9c4cc.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2220_zps12428beb.jpg)

So far:

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2162_zpsc318851c.jpg)

Then off she went for a fixing up!

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2199_zps5a563d69.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2200_zps3a9486d9.jpg)

The work table and carbon fibre wrapped side trims

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2318_zps866becab.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_23212_zps0b615a1a.jpg)

Update from Davy Pickard and the lads:

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_23352_zpsca87184e.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_20801_zpsb16bff88.jpg)

Andddd after 3 months, dooone!

Flush bonnet and bumper
Votex front splitter
Respray of front and both sides

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2354_zpsfefff3ee.jpg)


Admittedly I did actually drive the car around all day like this:

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2357_zpsed0392b7.jpg)

Then the postman was busy and it was a rush to get it back on the road (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Anni lights

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2382_zps79b10304.jpg)

Sharan Badge (now for sale 40 squids people (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) )

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2387_zps4e9a8bac.jpg)

Loads of other bits done, just trying to think !
Went with part worn 205/45's all round, wanted to go 195 but didnt have the bucks... Gave me a bit more stretch at least. Bridgestone on front, Pirelli on the back.

First wash , excuse the dodgy hairy fella cleaning

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2625_zps06df681f.jpg)

And back together (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2637_zpsd035cd2f.jpg)

Going low again don't worry (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/image_zps50867adb.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2639_zps25b4840c.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2648_zps51543748.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2649_zps329df7cb.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2656_zpsb3903e24.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2657_zps4ac5de53.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/image_zps8442c103.jpg)

And that's it for now, an empty pocket with too many plans in my head still. Certainly lowering it is first on the list when I get the chance, going through NCT Sunday week so it'll be on the ground Monday. Then finish the boot build, change one of the lenses on the anni's and go from there! I hope I'm worthy enough for this thread (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Let me know what ye think !

Thanks man (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Heading back up to college today. Im up in UL and as we all know, the road from Waterford is not pleasant so I've had to come to my senses and wrap her up (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
I'm not the biggest fan of it at all but I paid a lot of hard earned bucks for the paint job, anyone know any other options to protect the paint? Cant use anything like polish/wax etc for 90 days....

Hey buddy great thread and love the car. I detail cars ect and there is a really good product that I use on customers cars its called polishangel master sealant. Its a polymer based coating that puts a kind of scratch resistant coating on your car which lasts for a year. There is no need for any polish or waxing during this time and the beading and water behavior is superior.

Had to go against putting it on. Previous owner had used like superglue or something to stick the original badge on and with the smaller badge you can see it all on the outside if you get me because I couldn't get the stuff off off for the life of me... For sale for the right price, I've carbon wrapped the inside, you can see it in the pics (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Yes can be applied by hand but is best used by machine. I use their escalate lotion as a kind of paint cleanser before the master sealant. Gtechniq are quite good but tricky enough to use thats why iv switched to the polishangel range they are just so easy. 90days seems alot usually id leave paint 3-4weeks max as all the gasses stc.. would have been given off by then

Some ladeen did a nice job on the windscreen Sunday night, picked the wrong car to do it to

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2485_zps4b757f1b.jpg)

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2486_zps7005a06b.jpg)

And to add insult to injury the bas***d stood up on the bonnet to kick it in and scratched it

(IMG:http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b509/LochyC/IMG_2495_zpsdc40ee33.jpg)

Caught him though (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) Finding out Saturday if I need a respray or it'll buff out. If it's a respray it'll be a pricey night for yer man!

True! He did a nice dance on the bonnet though. 2 dents spotted when I brought it in to the lads! On the bright side, another respray on the bonnet haha
