Welcome to the forum mate,

Absolutely love it, definately Fresh :p
you say about how its 'rare' - well i can say ive definately not seen many about like it witht he roof let alone one thats been modified (excluding other lupo's ofcourse)

is the interior going to get the same treatment?
I recon you can lower tongue

cheers bud, moving onto the interior next got some porsche 911 seats i may be buying in need of a trim

lol i could but then it would become un-driveable, i have hench speed bumps to go over to get out of my estate i live on ive had to plan a route out where i only got over 3 sets, i went to chelmsford today and i scrubbed on the road, and getting out of a multistory over there, well i nearly didnt get out as there was a speedbump before the exit that was big, ended up coming down onto my sills lol bit of a bang,

it is fairly low tbh im happy with it, its a daily at the end of the day so still need it drive-able

Yea fair do's, isn't much goin on in Braintree is there tbh. Oh right, whos your gf?
Cool, Yea I know what its like, I did virtually all the prep work on my car aswell before it was resprayed. Lots of hard work but well worth it when you see it all finished and back together.
