First things first i sprayed the badges black.
And got a bra as it was really cheap

Then i got a crappy air filter, all noise no power.

Bought some subs from a mate
2 12" 1000watt jbl subs and a 4000watt amp

Soon realised i needed money for new wheels and springs so they went.

Got new plates from FancyPlates and a clio sport sticker.

And then a spoiler of here. Sprayed it black and fitted it.

Then bought some 172 wheels of R46. then he scammed me, told me he ''forgot'' the center caps and 2 tyres. No answer to emails, tetxs, phone calls even tho he answer the majority of them and didnt speak.
Anyway this is about my car not him.

Got the wheels home and cleaned them and just waiting to get some tyres for them.

In the meantime i bought some 60mm apex springs of here got them fitted the other day.

just cleaned it.

Thanks for looking.
 
Another Capsicum non-sport owner! woop.

Looks good. Not a massive fan of the wheels, but other than that looks good.
I presume your front plate is 84mm tall from the guide. I measured it up the other day and went for 94mm and actually fits a lot better and doesnt have the border at the bottom which imo is better.

Looks like your paint works in good condition as well, hardly any fading :)

Cheers, i hate the wheels, iv got some 172 wheels to go on asoon as i get some cash.
Erm not 100% i think its 90mm actually
Looks good from far away but trust me its in bad condition needs a proper good detail.

If those wheels weren't kerbed or silver they would look good on the car...

But good progress.... Get colour coding ;)

Bit of a problem with it atm think the clutch is on its way out. :( When i accelerate after 2/3K it sounds revs high [ sounds like im riding the clutch ] only dose it in 1st 2nd n 3rd tho.
Cant afford a new clutch :(

The first few pics I thought it was gonna be a chav fest but it's coming along nicely, once those horrible alloys are removed it'll look much better. Great buy :)
 
  172cup
Defiantly not running low on fuel? or a Fuel pump problem?

Half a tank atm so not sure.
It sounds like its slipping when i accelerate past a few k.
Ill do a little video tomorrow if no one has any idea's.

ahah cheers :)
Yeah can't wait to get them fitted.

Tyres... Sell your alloys to a ned then buy a stealth simples! ;)
Very true :L

looking good so far and do get it lower! :p

Yeah when i either get enough for some decent coilovers or rokkor make 52mm spacing ones it will be lower.

Also being fucked around by the insurance, they now want me to pay around 2.5K cheapest iv found is 2.2K i can insure a mk4 fiesta zetec s for £1500 :S or a 182 for £2.4K :S think i might sell this and get either the fiesta or sport :L

Or just buy them and drill them out to fit....lol

Thats s**t...how come they've done that? i got a quote on a 182 for 6.5k :O

Not much updates going on atm :(

A couple random pics

Gave it a wash and met up with a mate



Cadwell Park Sticker



Gave it a wash and just as i was finish it pissed it down



Quick photoshop of how i want it



Will be some small updates within the next week or so.
 
TBH If you lower it more you will run into more money for the arch mods youll need.
But very very nice neat car there mate, cant believe you got it for under 1k!

Yeah thats what i was thinking =/
I've got some 172 wheels to go on when i get some tyres so ill see how much lower it will go with them on if its got a fair bit i might invest in some rokkor colies and get the holes re-drilled to fit mine.

Cheers :D

Looks good so far, but get those 172 wheels on, I think you'll be happier with the ride height then!

Oh have you had any trouble from the smaller plate?

That phase 1 would be jizz worthy if it was slightly lower and without angels!

How close you to getting the 172s fitted now?
