NickBraddock posted a topic in Mk3 PoloIt's been 10 years since my beloved polo gt coupe came off the road and then money went into other hobbies...as they do! Until now when my dad decided he needed the parking space and so i got to work and here she currently stands, bare in mind i've got a couple more small jobs to do but she's pretty much there :)
Specs when I bought it: Mk2f 1l coupe, mk1 fk coilovers on the rear with standard suspension up front. Carre Astro 13” 6.5j alloys and a good few layers of wizard purple emulsion. Bought this Monster last September for £600 and nearly another 100 on bits since. Since then i've got some second hand 40mm lowering springs and some shorter shocks of fleabay to even out the lows. New strut mounts and ARB blocks as prescribed by the doctor. While taking it apart for this I noticed a wheel bearing had gone so when that came back in the garage and put it all back together about lunchtime today. Plans for this car are to get rid of the tacky stickers I spaffed on the wing mirrors and get some black spray paint out. I'm thinking the Bonnet is a good place to get creative and possibly get some wheel arch extensions. Don't want to start messing about with the engine just yet. Also got some half leather Porsche Tombstones which should be going in this weekend. Now I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea but please no questions about the colour, people seem to think I don't want a bright purple car. Any other feedback or advise is greatly appreciated! So far I've only been driving her round the countryside with el Pappio in the passenger seat bricking it the whole time but with luck i'll be on the road in a couple weeks so thought I should get her out there.
