    Picked this up yesterday down in High Wycombe and drove down from Leeds.

    Absolutely loved the drive back, my last car was a diesel PD130 Seat Ibiza sport which I'd modded a fair bit engine wise and got it running around 200bhp which was fun but I just wanted a car that handles amazing and I think I found it :smile:

    Anyway, this was in the petrol station just where I picked it up from. Love the colour so much.

    Lovely and shiny in my drive!



    [​IMG]


    Then today I started to crack on with some jobs and seeing what I have to play with :smiley: She's in excellent condition bar a few things as shown later below but here is her now.

    Please excuse the mess in the background, having our windows done haha

    [​IMG]



    That's not a scuff on the rear bumper, scared myself for a second when looking at this pic haha


    [​IMG]


    Now the bad parts, the headlights desperately need restoring



    [​IMG]



    There is a scuff here.



    [​IMG]



    And the wheels need a refurb so badly.


    [​IMG]



    Anyway, I removed the throttle body and gave it a clean up as it was ever so slightly carboned up.


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    The emissions were high on the MOT, apparently its running rich at around 2000rpm but okay at idle?
    so I wanted to have a look at some of the sensors to see if they were dirty and also to inspect the spark plugs to see their condition so started removing everything to get to it.


    [​IMG]


    Spark plugs looked fairly new, along with the air filter.

    Started to wire in my dash cam :smiley:.



    [​IMG]



    I took a feed from the cigarette socket as it comes on with ignition.




    [​IMG]



    Previous owner liked chocolate apparently.




    [​IMG]


    I then fed the wire up along the B pillar

    [​IMG]


    All in!


    [​IMG]



    Need to sort the interior out and just ordered £40's worth of car detailing stuff including some more clay, iron and tar remover, wash and some pads and applicators so should be cleaning her up sometime next week inbetween graduate job interviews!!

    Thanks for reading so far

    I'm good thanks mate.

    My account dates back to my second 1.2 16v Dynamique back in 2002. Which was replaced by my furby.

    Nope, just got it mainly for protection incase someone was to crash into me. Was going to do the odd track day with my old car and thought it would have come in handy.

    Managed to get this on cam too, pulled the guy over and luckily he was pretty sound about giving me the money for a new windscreen but if he happened to be a dick and deny it i'd have this evidence against him. (sorry faboka you've probably seen this vid about a million times too :wink: )

    Thanks man.

    It was a bit of cowling in front of the wing mirror. The look on the guys face when he realised a part of his car was missing was priceless, he hadn't had the car long at all :tongueclosed:.

    The other day I removed the seats to clean under them. They weren't too bad but anyway...








    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]








    The car has quite a lot of dust build up, a bit neglected from the previous owner.






    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]






    Found a pound.






    [​IMG]






    Peekaboo.




    [​IMG]






    I then removed the acoustic valve for a little more noise at the top end






    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]






    Then went for a drive and took a few snaps. Photography isn't really my thing... haha






    [​IMG]

    More interior cleaning, look at that dirty knob :wink:

    Need to clean these seatbelts properly, any ideas what will remove the crud?






    [​IMG]










    [​IMG]






    [​IMG]

    Then all done and took some more snaps in the drive. Came out really well. I'm giving it a proper exterior detail tomorrow, just got some new goodies in :smiley:

    Keep up the good work!

    I used just standard Persil mate! Used a fair bit of it though as i'm not really sure on the ratios. Needed Mother dear for the guidance really haha. Then agitated them with a firm brush that I got from Asda next to the car section. The same brush in the car section was £3 and this one was £1. Was literally next to it too I should have taken a pic.

    Thanks Dan! No idea how they could have gotten this dirty, more chocolate fingers? lol

    Today when it stopped raining I tackled the horribly faded and green headlights. I was going to buy a headlight restoration kit but thought i'd try something else after a few searches.


    Started with wet and dry 1200, then 2000 then finally 2500 until the green had gone. Then machine polished them on the slowest setting with megs #105 until they started getting clearer. Then glazed with prima amigo and put two layers of Collinite #915


    Really happy with the results, they're not absolutely brand new perfect as I didn't want to overdue the machine polishing with it being plastic and me being a total noob with a machine polisher.


    This is before. well foggy at mainly the top of the lens:


    [​IMG]DSCN2068 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]2014-06-28 15.53.59 by dann2707, on Flickr


    Can barely see the orange indicator.


    Then afterwards.




    Still a little hazy so went over it again.

    Thanks mate!

    Tiny update, although hopefully if the postman is nice he'll deliver something today :smile:


    Sprayed my upper grill black as before it looked like this - A kind of off grey which didn't match the fog surround or lower grill as shown.

    Thanks mate!! :smile: Needs a front splitter desperados

    Yay 2nd page lets celebrate with a picture of a smiling cow

    [​IMG]



    Here's a slightly more interesting update. New number plates and lambda sensor :smiley:


    Starting with the old. Was awful to look at and had rusty screws etc.


    [​IMG]DSCN2159 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2160 by dann2707, on Flickr




    YUM




    [​IMG]DSCN2161 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2162 by dann2707, on Flickr








    Removed and cleaned behind it.




    [​IMG]DSCN2163 by dann2707, on Flickr




    And all on. I managed to accidentally stick it on prematurely and it's a little too much to the left :worried: Couldn't remove it easily too. Can you notice or is it just me being a bit anal?




    [​IMG]DSCN2164 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2165 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2166 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2178 by dann2707, on Flickr




    Then on to the front one. Opted for a smaller plate as the standard one hangs over the edge and looks a bit crap.




    Before




    [​IMG]DSCN2167 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2168 by dann2707, on Flickr




    After. Nicely fills the recess :smile:




    [​IMG]DSCN2170 by dann2707, on Flickr






    [​IMG]DSCN2171 by dann2707, on Flickr






    [​IMG]DSCN2172 by dann2707, on Flickr

    [​IMG]DSCN2174 by dann2707, on Flickr


    [​IMG]DSCN2177 by dann2707, on Flickr






    I then went on to fitting the lambda sensor. Opted for a universal one, genuine bosch though. Was only £17!! Nice. Seems really decent quality. So removed my old one.




    [​IMG]2014-07-02 17.12.02 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]2014-07-02 17.12.11 by dann2707, on Flickr




    And crimped them together. Not really a fan of soldering as it gets brittle and cracks easily.




    [​IMG]2014-07-02 17.19.37 by dann2707, on Flickr




    I did then tape them up nice and neatly afterwards :smile:




    Okay so I plugged the lambda sensor in and fired up the Torque app on my phone to monitor the voltage levels. This was the old one.


    Notice how the volts drop straight to zero on it's down cycle. This is baaaaaaad and should apparently read 0.1v for a working sensor. (should be between 0.1v - 0.8v)


    [​IMG]Screenshot_2014-07-02-17-33-19 by dann2707, on Flickr






    Now this is after the new one is fitted. Now notice the graph reads a tasty 0.1v! :smiley: Yet to go for a spin to try it but seems to idle a lot lot better now.

    Liking the new plates, it is slightly to the left haha, I did this with mine, but I grabbed a hair dryer warmed the glue pads up and restuck it on. I opted for 90mm rather than the 84mm. Is the font smaller than legal on yours? I requested to maintain the legal font size on mine.

    Thanks Couzens. Ordered a splitter that i'm collecting tomorrow.

    Cheers buddy, glad you found me in the end. Yours is looking delicious :smile:



    I did take quite a few before and after pictures but they sadly got deleted from my camera. But i've done a few little niggly things that needed sorting.


    First of all I wet sanded the rear number plate light as it was, like the headlights, all dull and faded. This is the best before pic I can get after them deleting...


    [​IMG]DSCN2160 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2162 by dann2707, on Flickr




    And afterwards!


    [​IMG]DSCN2209 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2210 by dann2707, on Flickr




    Then fitted a brighter boot light as the one in there was shocking. Luckily had a few lying around.


    [​IMG]DSCN2189 by dann2707, on Flickr




    This one fit nice and snug though (sort of)




    [​IMG]DSCN2190 by dann2707, on Flickr




    Ridiculously bright too!




    [​IMG]DSCN2191 by dann2707, on Flickr




    I then thoroughly cleaned the door and boot shuts as they were a little minging. Put down a layer of wax too just to be sure and make cleaning in the future easier.




    [​IMG]DSCN2211 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2212 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2213 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2214 by dann2707, on Flickr




    Then took a pic at night with the numberplate light after it being polished and waxed. The camera makes it look stupidly glaringly bright but it's not in real life




    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]




    Then finally I took some pics today in my Dad's work car park.

    Thank you sj2112

    Done a few more things!


    The rear seatbelts were absolutely filthy, like the fronts.

    [​IMG]DSCN2217 by dann2707, on Flickr


    [​IMG]DSCN2218 by dann2707, on Flickr




    I then looked under the rear seats to clean. Someones likes screws and nails :confused: hahaha


    [​IMG]DSCN2220 by dann2707, on Flickr


    [​IMG]DSCN2221 by dann2707, on Flickr




    clean




    [​IMG]DSCN2225 by dann2707, on Flickr

    MrTom do you mean cup spoiler?

    Need to refurb the wheels which I might do myself this week. Got quite a lot of time off so I might tackle it myself.

    I'm really unsure on the colour. Might play with photoshop tonight and see what it looks like.

    Antharacite i've done on my cars before and it's a little overdone imo (I know the cup pack comes with anthracite) but I really like the contrast of the standard silver on blue paintwork.

    Anyway, I attempted at sanding the wheels down but the paint is SO thick and the kerb marks are ridiculously deep into the paint that it would take me so long to do so the wheels are off and my Dad is going to take them to the sand blasters tomorrow to get them down to bare metal then i'll spray them myself.

    Would sand blasting be too course of a finish?!

    Small update.


    Gave it another wash tonight and another layer of wax as I think I may have rushed the second coat the other day as it wasn't beading everywhere as much as I liked.


    The pics make the bonnet look a bit dull but it's just hazing from the weather tonight

    Also, I made a Facebook post the other night asking if anyone had an iPod or mp3 player I could buy to keep in the car. My friend replied and said I could have her iPod 8gb nano for free! So happy and grateful. Will save me killing my battery on my phone when i'm driving around.

    Also got some super cheap bargain 50p glasses from this website on Facebook. Perfect little holder on the dash too :smiley:

    Tyres are being removed Saturday for the shot blaster to do his thing on the wheels! Woo

    The other day I set out to adjust the exhaust a little bit. Due to the mounts being a bit deadafied it's not sitting them correctly. So with a cable tie or a few I pulled it to the middle a bit more!


    Before:

    After. Sorry for the dark pic!:




    [​IMG]DSCN2342 by dann2707, on Flickr






    The leather/alacantra seats are a tad bobbly! Classic problem apparently so I got my trusty bic safety razor and shaved it, it worked okay but I could really do with a proper de-bobbler machine

    [​IMG]DSCN2331 by dann2707, on Flickr




    [​IMG]DSCN2332 by dann2707, on Flickr






    After. The seat is so stained. Needs sorting out properly tbh haha




    [​IMG]DSCN2333 by dann2707, on Flickr






    I then applied the front bumper black inserts. Mine aren't there so got some from @Ady182 thanks dude! Great service. Before:

    The eagle eyed of you might wonder why the car is so low at the front haha. This might give a clue :smiley:




    [​IMG]DSCN2349 by dann2707, on Flickr






    The wheels are off completely to be shot blasted Monday for me to spray them :smiley: Can't wait as they're such a let down at the moment.
