My eBay bargain coilovers arrived today. I took a punt on them because the seller said they had only been on the car for 6 months despite appearances. They were worth a go at the price and despite being dirty were in great nick.

Cleaned them up this afternoon and gave the main struts a lick of paint. New top mounts fitted and ready to be fitted next Monday.

Good progress being made over the last couple of days, with a big thank you to @Hef

I managed to persuade Hef that it would be a great idea if he painted the votex kit for me. I wasn’t expecting anything fantastic, just something black and tidy.

I’ve only had a few snapshots so far but I’m very very impressed


Wet sanded

High build primer

Black base coat

Colour coat and then laquered

He’s also donated a set of fabia VRS hubs with callipers and carriers, so whilst the car is in having its coilovers fitted today/tomorrow it will also be having 288mm discs fitted.

@Birchall also donated a set of Heko wind deflectors and removable sunshades. 2 items that I wanted to add to the car to give it a more aggressive look. Thanks Steve

Coilovers fitted, new drop links fitted, Fabia VRS 288mm Brake setup fitted.

Have also just fitted the wheels and a few other extras.

I’m over the moon with the way it’s currently looking but I’ll post photos once the votex kit is on.

Well the bulk of the work is now done. It’s been a hectic 7 weeks but I think this is definitely a breaker reborn.

Hef dropped the finished kit off to me tonight and with the aid of PPE we were able to fit it too. He’s done a fantastic job of painting it!! I can’t thank him enough. To say I am happy with the way this car has turned out would be an understatement. It’s my favourite one so far.

Sorry, but this one is NOT FOR SALE 😁
