    Heya everyone, ive been busy hording parts over the last few months to fit to my car, hopefully in time for Elsecar. Thought id put together a little build thread..
    Heres how it started life, about the height of a monster truck, covered in ugly mouldings and badges..

    sanded the rusty calipers and drums and painted

    Debadged the bugger..
    Rupie's 16v Polo 100_3120
    And sat it on its a**e..Took about 20 mins to do the rear end, and about 2 hours a side on the front, due to using the rubbishist spring clamps in the world.

    A momo team 280mm wheel, makes it feel like a go-cart whith the coilies now!
    Rupie's 16v Polo 100_3302
    CDA carbon induction kit (also yet to be fitted)
    Rupie's 16v Polo 100_3303
    Trial fitment of the wheels revealed that the arches would indeed have to be flaired and rolled if i wanted to have it at my desired height..
    Rupie's 16v Polo 100_3305-1
    Rupie's 16v Polo 100_3306-1
    However i decided to fit the rubber before arch work and see how it sat.
    Took my tyres for the rubber to be fitted, and fitted the front seats of my interior and stearing wheel (leaving the back ones out until ive finished ferrying around parts)
    Right, new pics...

    Let me know what you think, was thinking to coming to a few of your meets over summer, there isnt much of a dub scene atall in york.

    I spoke to Chris from Widewheels.com, now, Bandedsteels.com, and after a few texts and bouncing a few pics around I took my car over to lancashire where Chris started the proces of rolling and flairing all four arches, by about 25mm all round.
    Here he is hard at work on my rear arches..
    Rupie's 16v Polo Image010
    Took the car to have it painted locally at York Auto Bodyshop, who did an amazing job giving it a half respray, as the paint had come off the arches during the flaireing process.
    Hers's the arch prior to flairing and painting.
    Rupie's 16v Polo Image035
    And after flairing and painting...
    Rupie's 16v Polo Image030
    Im as partial to abit of poke as the next dubber, but after hearing internet tales of 3 points and car empoundment I decided it would be best to be on the safe side, and I didnt fancy having my tyres ripped to shreads!
