Right some one suggested a build thread on here so heres the cupra from the start....

All posts pasted from build on seat cupra
http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=270718

if in parts it reads a bit wierd its because ive missed some out where people have commented and ive replied ect
.............................................................................................................................................

Well been dying to get a project going...

Heres the car from the piston heads advert



She is on 50k miles and a pretty tidy on the outside, needs a few bits and bobs sorting but no rush, the inside is a ****ing disgrace but meh i got a good deal. The only mods are a k and n, cat back exhaust and supersport coilovers and some hids










First port of call was to fit a new driver side grab handle on the roof as it had been ripped off, then to replace the mirror in the sun visor which was cracked. i then painted the calipers, wound the coilies down a bit and put my gfs team dynamics alloys on as i hate the cupra 1s. had a busy weekend and gave her a quick clean and steam cleaned the seats as they where stained :whistle:

also de-wipered (still need a gromit) and de-badged and sorted out some bodge jobs.

i am waiting on some bits, leon cupra splitter, maroon camo fabric for head lining (its a mess) and some new mats.

going to see about getting the plastics colour coded tomorow and the grills will be done gloss black along with splitter and scuttle panel.

keep your eyes peeled for updates........ opinions welcome

quick update, today the lcr splitter arrived aswell as some new mats and the camo for the roof lining.

went to see my mate aswell who manages a honda dealer bodyshop, been qouted 200 notes for the following:

repair and paint crease in qaurter above rear drivers side window

paint insides of the wings under the bonnet as the previous owner had a bra and its rubbed down to primer in places

colour code front and rear bump strips

repair and paint cracked jacking cover

paint the roof gloss black

paint lcr splitter gloss black

paint the wing mirrrs including bases gloss black

paint the front grills and scuttle panel gloss black



i think its an awesome price, also noticed the passenger side coilover isnt at the same height as the drivers so will adjust that at the weekend. also fitted some aero wipers of ebay.... pics of headlining at weekend unless i **** it up, material doesnt seem stretchy to me so dont know how that will go

right so update time.....

also i have noticed all the crap in the boot... thats my standard decat downpipe, was supposed to be on the car but me snapping a stud on the turbo and two seized on its going to a garage to get sorted. whilst i was under the car i realised that my car didnt have a cat back but just a back box so a suitable replacement will be on the cards soon i hope. the standard downpipe will be fine for now because im leaning towards a k04 kit as they can be had cheap. heres the decat

so to do list (evolves each time..)
hids in fogs
uni fm intercooler
gloss black between windows and light smoke rear tints
wot box (have already just needs fitting)
hopefully a non res milltech cat back if my pm gets replied too
fix stud on turbo/fit decat (mates doing this while im in greece as of mon ...)
20 mm rear spacers and paint wheels antracite
paint front strut brace gloss black
red forge or similar boost hoses
brembos
rear whiteline arb
some leather fixed buckets and harnesses
full leather rear bench
cd player in dash instead of cassete bit.... amps subs and the likes also
boost gauge
interior leds and no plate leds ect
new no plate light (1 is missing?)

id say the tyres are like that on the inside as its been lowered mate.There will be a fair bit of camber so youll do well to get some camber bolts to sort it from happening again.
