Polo Coupe

Post  DanielWatts on Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:34 pm

Heres Project number two! a 1993 Polo CL Coupe 1.0 Twisted Evil

Current spec:
~13x7 ATS Classics - Front
~13x8 ATS Classics - Rear
~Lowered 60mm on Spax shocks + Springs
~Front Lower strut brace
~GT Seats
~GT Red trim
~Alarm connected to Air horns (Proper funny looks when unlocking/locking)
~Black Badges
~Dewipered
~Stickers

Plans:
~Take off WheelWhores sticker (proper creased and looks crap) DONE
~Wire up central locking DONE
~Build new install
~Fit Stereo from 205
~Paint a couple of trims that have faded/flaked
~Take some dents out
~GT Clocks (need a Rev counter) DONE
~Clear front lights
~Clear repeaters
~GT/G40 rear lights (tinted indicators)
~Roll arches or sell the wheels
~Coilies, but not likely for ages!
# Probably lots more but can't think at the minute!

Arriving home:


Pics:









And tried HDR photoshop :\




Update time!

Firstly, central locking is now all wired up and working with my alarm Very Happy .. can't leave my keys in my boot though, otherwise it'll all lock after 30 secs lol

Then i put my new matts that i got for crimbo


Next up, was new discs and pads that i got for crimbo, my calipers were holding the pads on one side, so only had half breaking :eek:




Went to the scrap yard on and after searching and searching, didn't see a Polo. Luckily a friend saw one up top Very Happy

So grabbed the bits that i needed.
- A set of Genesis/GT Clocks (adds Rev counter and clock)

Sorry for the pic quality. We managed to work out how to change the mileage to the correct one. So got that sorted.

- Centre console, mine didn't come with one. It needed a clean up and a new gaitor, but that'll be sorted.



- Also grabbed the Scuttle Panel, as mine was snapped and held together by tape

New vs. Old

And thats it!

Going to do some Red detailing inside, and on the look out for some Renault 5 Mirrors. To stop the 'Mickey Mouse' look lol

Get some bullet ones they would get rid of the 'mickey mouse' look, and also fairly cheap
