I thought I'd start a new topic and go from day one up til current.

MK2 Facelift Polo Breadvan [Fox] 1l.

I bought the car about 2 and a half years ago for 450 quid, with the plan to make it rat look, so I didn't wash it for a year. It was completely standard, on steels with low mileage [56,000 when I got it, but now sits at 62,000].

My little Polo Breadder <3 24756_387504060851_556805851_4189489_5987628_n

But I never got round to doing anything more than lowering it [80mm all round]. And swapping the interior for a CL interior which was less in your face.

Then I decided the paintwork, bodywork etc were in too good condition to ruin them by going ratty, so I started work on going 'quirky'. The plan was to go down low, out wide, cover the windows [but not bodywork] with stickers and roll on the BBS RA's that I'm in the process of polishing the lips on, so here was my photoshop idea...

My little Polo Breadder <3 166999_490807350851_556805851_6291663_1581190_n

And here is how it is so far. There is actually more stickers on it now but I don't have any pictures yet... Oh and I painted the steelies gold with hammerite and paintbrushes for GTI Springfest for shiggs.

I've swapped the front seats for height adjustable and much more comfortable seats out of an old scirocco gt2 which only had 40,000 miles on it, so the seats are perfect. They look like these...

My little Polo Breadder <3 2008_0314pics0007

I bought these wheels on ebay, with no idea what they came off of, I've been told maybe an old rare audi or a mk1 golf. 7j, vw offset on 165 55's.

My little Polo Breadder <3 231149_10150190292110852_556805851_7229481_3268855_n

My little Polo Breadder <3 226525_10150190292595852_556805851_7229487_5848394_n

Unfortunately when we put them on the car they fitted perfect on the fronts, but the arch sat on top of the tyre at the rear. Here is how it sits at the front. Just legal, looks so good!

My little Polo Breadder <3 230372_10150190291570852_556805851_7229478_5751858_n

My little Polo Breadder <3 227589_10150190292255852_556805851_7229483_1948844_n

We tried rolling the arches but they were really solid and double skinned and there's about 10mm standing between the wheels scrubbing everywhere or fitting nicely so I'm now having them flared, and then having a respray on both sides and the bonnet [to cover stone chips].

The flaring will be happening this weekend but will have to wait a short while to get the respray done by a mate.

So watch this space!

I'm currently rolling on the new wheels on the front which have made it a lot lower so the exhaust scrapes a lot more, maccyd's in Dunstable is a killer for speedbumps. Not the mention the fact that as I left Big Bang fest at Santa Pod last weekend the bladdy exhaust fell off so it's tied on with cable ties and hangs lower haha!!!

Oh and I forgot to mention, I have no pictures but I've got clear front indicators and clear side repeaters too, to keep it all neat. And a mk2 golf front splitter on it's way to be modified, also considering making a custom rear splitter out of something as the rear bumper still sits too high for my liking.

If anyone is wondering why it isn't lower [I would love it lower] coilovers for mk2 / mk2f polo's cost 500 quid at the very bottom end of the market because they are more complicated, something to do with the hub and strut being one peice, which isn't worth it.

FUTURE PLANS involve a g40 engine conversion ;]

I'm not a fan of stretch! They're already at the limit of what I think looks / runs good haha, they're the same width tyres as I had on my 5.5 steelies. I like to drive like a nut and having less tyre on the road would be a bad thing haha!

If all fails with flaring the arches the plan is to go all out and fit coupe arches so they're round, only ever seen 2 or 3 breaddies like it ;]

I've also now got the whole set of wheels on but it still scrubs on one side so it needs a bit more arch work then a respray. Exciting!

Today I decided to add some more quirkiness to my car. Took out the sun visors and studded them...

Let me know what you think :]

Ha, uhhhhm sort of? I only did photography that's probably not the kind of art student you were thinking of! I just like customising things, it's always good to be a bit more quirky!

Right so I found a website [ http://www.carlsalter.com/wheel_fitments.html ] that shows a guide of all wheels fitments, except it's not completely accurate, so the maserati fitment is down at 4x108 instead of 4x98 but it may help me in finding out what my wheels are from, it hasn't got everything on there but it's still a rough guide and maybe a step closer!

If anyone can help me find out what exactly they are that would be mega awesome!
