New Thread as other was a bit scruffy. Bought this s reg polo 1.0 off my cousin with 10 months mot and 48,000 miles on the clock, it had already had the 1.4 aex or apx engine fitted but was still running on the 1.0 ecu. i went in his polo sport afh engine and decided i had to have one, so whilst i was looking i decided to do a few things to the car that wouldnt cost the earth. First up was i bought a Hid Kit 8000k , which i fitted as soon as it turned up. Then the roof lining and plastics was next, the roof lining was stained in places and since i done all roof linings on my corsa's i decided it would look good on this too. So i painted roof lining, dashboard, sun visors, a,b,c pillars and rear door cards. i also tinted my rear windows with 20% light so not too dark. i smoked my rear lights lightly. done the diy depo mod on my headlights and bought led bulbs for everywhere in the car.& Pinted vw badge on my grill i also decided to put side lights in my indicators (which i was told could be dangerous, so have bought another set of clear indicators) I also bought a powersteering conversion kit , front reclining leather bucket seats and I'm guessing what are rear coilovers. Then i came on here and noticed someone breaking a 6n sport with afh engine, i contacted the seller and a deal was made to buy the engine package, and a few other bits and pieces i need. in the end i bought the whole car. So really this is where I'm up to with the car my 1.4 8v engine was removed and sold today. Tommorrow I'm hoping to remove the 16v engine. Future plans for the car are: everything removed from the sport i bought. Fit powersteering Fit afh engine fit electric window kit - done fit central locking kit - done fit alarm and immobiliser off sport - in process paint and fit sport bumpers fit suspension off sport fit wheels and brakes fit rear seats out of sport - done fit backbox off sport and sell rest of stainless system And basically sell what i can off the sport i bought to try recover some money Look in for sale section if anything is needed. Some pics Day i got polo Roof Lining and interior spraying Led Sidelights Smoked Rear Lights With A 50/50 Smoked Headlights Hid Kit Fitted Led Indicators New Seats New Engine And Donor Car Stripping Begins Bye Bye 8v So today i removed the engine and all other bits i could off the sport, tommorrow I'm going to remove the last pieced before scrapman comes wednesday. few pics.
Hi, I'm just wondering on the best places to place axle stands/ block up underneath my bread van shell to I can strip both the front and rear beam/ struts etc. This is so I can start referbing them and also do some welding and rust treatment prior to respray. Pictures would be best as i don't want to axle stand it in the wrong places/ I want it stood so I can get the most work done without moving them. Cheers
