Thought i may as well get up and running with a 'build' thread

Got the car late last year after selling my bora :( Decided to wait a while until the weather got a bit better to start work

Car is a 1.2 s 64ps (possibly one of the worst engines ever produced!haha)

Not got much done to date just coilovers, plates, De-badge front grill and yellow fogs. Wheels have been purchased however awaiting refurb/tyres...

It's laminex on the lights, like a protective film. Pretty hard to install to be fair as there's alot of curveature on mk7 lights!
