Hi Clubpolo I've been on here a while now so i thought it was about time to put up a build thread, so let me know what you think :)

I bought the car back in March for £1900, its my first car and i absolutley fell in love with it so heres the spec.

Model: White Polo 6n2.

Engine: 1.0 Litre .

Suspension: Jom Blue line coilovers (Lowered 60mm atm)

Brakes: Standard.

Wheels and Tyres: 15" Cades Eros (195/45/15)

Exterior Styling: Gti Grill, Black Badges, Tinted Limo black at the back and legal limit at the front, White Handles and plans on smoothing bumpers.

Interior Styling: Standard.

ICE and Security: Juice 1200w Amp, Sony Headunit, Juice Front door speakers and infinitys at the back.

So heres some pictures of the car i call Flo :p

First day i got her :

adam-

Lovely clean base! I've got a thing for white 6n2's.

I wouldn't even colour code the strips. Just some lowerage and keep it clean.

I'd paint the rear badge "inner" white to match the body though.

Depends where you want to go with it though. Bigger brakes? They always look good tucked behind wheels.

Just because it's clean doesn't mean it's running tip top though - make sure you always give her a good service. If you can paint a badge - you can change the oil!

Yeah totally agree i was going to leave the side strips black to break it up abit but wanting to smooth front a rear bumpers i was going to paint the white bits in between the rear badge but seemed abit fiddley when maskin it up should of taken it apart and done it before i put it on lol, and dont worry i service her every 5,000 my self, The cars only on 49,000 so shes running quite smooth, and bigger breaks could look good thanks for the feedback mate :)

It's not bad at all man, once the badge is off you break off the glue patches, you'll see them and the two parts just prise apart.

Flat it all back and spray. :)

Like it mate really smart motor you got there and reason for tints was i have speakers on the back shelf, and i dont like the look of em through the window (And security reasons) And I'm also going for a black and white theme :) thinking about fogs aswell, is it hard to wire em up ? (Wiring isn't my strong point lol)

Cheers!... same but will be getting round too the interior soon so i will sort them out eventually!... yea I'm very OEM my self but will look smart!.. will be keeping my eye on this thread :).... and fogs are easy!... when you take the covers off the wiring is already there just cliped shut... all you need is

-Actual fog lights

-fog light grill's

-Switch for in the car

there are plenty of people doing it so if you get stuck just search and you'll find the info you need
