Chris' K10 Project

Hi Guys,​
So its the end of the year for my company and i have a cheeky £670 bonus for all my hard computing work/overtime. So i have crunched a few numbers and after putting money aside for tax at the end of march, mot in july and all that crap i can finally start this blog of my stuff.​
So i am a huge fan of VWs and really wanted to polo to slam and get wide. but instead i bought my sister auto white 1.2 micra k10. I couldnt care about speed because its all about low and slow. so below is a check list of everything i will be getting over the next 2 months to transform Dorris into a fat lady :)
The inspiration for this is Porks K10 and RTLkyuubi k10. Many thanks to these guys on the HOW TO posts they have and fair play on what they have done to thiers.​
1. De Bage the back DONE
2. Sticker bomb the dash DONE
3. Re Ferb steelies and sticker bomb the lip (soon to chnage to banded steelies with same effect)​
4. Fabricate some Coilovers to fit IN THE PROCCESS
6. Pressed number plates.​
7. sort out the little bits of rust​
8. change the front grille logo TBC
I will be posting pics up as much as possible to keep you guys up to date.​

Hi Mate! sounds like a good idea! if they arnt the ones that have the separate spring on the back, how muh you looking for with postage?!?!
 
do you mean the helper springs mate? im looking for £80 not sure what postage will be will have to check. they need a c-spanner to adjust them and i haven't got one i think they are about £6-£7 something like that.

100% will take them! i mean like the rear shocks are separate from the spring like with the corsa coilovers.... if they are like that then no thank you,.

you got a pay pal account, and i can pay for them next Wednesday :)

So thanks to sr20bud my Coilys should be here on friday and will hopefully had them edited over the next 7 days! wont be buy my wheels untill end of march because of car tax and all that jazz. However i have a little surprise because i have to wait :p

In addition what's peoples thoughts on a checked roof, i mean i dont want to go and have a ratty car, but then im not too bothered about the bumps and scraps on the body work. Just like the idea of the roof though :)

Coilys will be here on monday :D ####ty link always take their time ;) Im also off to a scrap yard tomorrow to get some spare parts for the coilys - bushes, top mounts, will take pics of the cars for anyone near wantage who needs parts.
 
how much do you want mate? i also need some :/
ive sold them to chris mate as he was desperate for a set sorry dude. if you check ebay and gumtree you get a fair few pop up. best thing to do with ebay is search under used. the ones i had were fairly heavy duty. i dont like the look of some of the new ones on there they look a bit cheap. i will keep my eyes peeled for you anyway tho mate.

UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE..

so the workshop has been closed due to a leak/explosion which is the bad news! :( But im still carrying on but it will take longer ALOT longer as i have no tools.

i have given her a clean, finished the dash, and the cones that sit in the top mount have been sent off to be put on a lathe.....

Also i hit the 100,000 mile mark last night! the pic is just before!
