Progress Report on Dan's K10

Looks impressive and very different. However im not to keen on the bonnet, think it would look better with a standard k10 bonnet and a k10 open mouth grill.Very nice though.

Looking good. The only thing i would say is widen the track at the rear to complete the wide look as the wheels sit too far inside the arch at the mo

Yeh its a shame they've started to abuse Stu's car as his is very nice. But as much as i hate to say it in a way i agree with them with regards to the K10.

Yes i appreciate all of the work that has gone into and its just my opinion but i feel too much has been done and its been ruined a bit. :(

But i do look forward to seeing the completed product.

Edit:- My cars just been put on there too. Booger :O

They were all bullied at school. Its just a way for them to feel as if they have had some importance in life.

Lol, cheers Pete. :p But really it doesn't bother me what they say. They don't even know me so how they can actually judge me from my car is beyond me!!! :) Just changing the V5 as we speak lol. :p

Also, to add, the photos by no means do this car justice!!! It looks so much better when you see it in the flesh, and it does still have some finishing off to be done. It can only really look better than it does now lol, but with the rain on the car it kinda spoiles the pictures a bit. Really does look so much better in the flesh though, and I'm over the moon with it hehe. :D Not to fussed what the fools on BB's think, as I'm more than happy with it. ;)

lol people don't like criticism do they? Dan's a grown up, I think he can take the fact that people don't like the style without crying to someone about it.

Alot of the BB members are just trying to impress by jumping on the bandwagon. As i've said, Dan's micra isn't really to my taste but i'm sure it is what he wants. If your not confident enough to take criticism then i doubt you'd drive a car so overtly modified.

Will people stop getting me and micra_pete confused, Micra pete is called micra pete.

When the car is done I would like to see it face to face.

lol maybe there is an element of that but tbh most of them deserve it. If I see a car that doesn't deserve it I say so.

anyway this thread is for Dan to show us his car, not for me to defend BB's.

Dans car is pure greatness, at least he has gone to the effort of modifing a car all the way... not giving up when it get tough, those loosers aint got a clue about modifing a car, who are they to disrespect somebodys hard-work...

Dan...I think your car is brilliant and im sure one day your'l be running a bloodly nice engine under that hood!!

Barryboys is for loser's... what that site represents is very sad.

Dan - I think Your K10 is very good, who cares what anyone else thinks, I certainly dont care about wot people like/dont like about my car.

I would like a K10 like yours one day, doubt it will happen but still.

Dan...I think your car is brilliant and im sure one day your'l be running a bloodly nice engine under that hood!!

Thanks for the comments. :) Yeah the engine wasn't in the best of states when we took it apart, hoping that it is sorted now though. :s As long as the car does me well for next years shows etc, then I see no reason why I couldn't put an sr20de in there this time next year. :) Apart from money of course lol. :p Yeah Stew, yours was the first, kinda the reason why I chose to follow suit. I do think they suit the k11 better, but even on a k10 they look so much better than the ugly standard lights lol. :)

I understand that not everyone will like the car and that is kool, I built it for me not anyone else. Obviously its nice that people do like it but there's no point in trying to please everyone, as at the end of the day, I modifyed it for myself. :) And personally... I love it!!! :D

what problems are you having mate? have the electric become damp? considering the state its in (interiror totally stripped i mean) just replace the entrie loom wouldnt really take long ;)
 

micra man

Golf GTi Turbo
Lol, thats what we are doing I think now mate. :) Just earth's I think, and with the amount of stuff that has been sat in the car and yes as you say with it been outside in the damp for so long it seems to be giving us a few problems with allsorts lol. :s The inidicators that have been wired in are very temperemental and the alarm is about there I think lol, but yeah think its new loom time. :) Wayne's started a job now though so not as much time to do it as before.

Just a quick update for you all. Not massive amounts of progress lately due to the paint shop not been able to get paints, Wayne now working full time, and the weather, which even in the garage hasn't helped too much. However, we now have paints, or will do tonight when I go and get them. Also have bought a 2nd car for spares, which I will rip the electrics out of and replace them in my car, which should sort the electrics problem out easily enough. Bodywork is now mostly done apart from a few touch ups, so just needs that finishing and electrics doing. Will also be stripping the 2nd car so if anybody wants any bits, let me know. :)

Haha, my 3rd LS I believe, I haven't even seen it yet though lol. Will get info. spec tonight though, although will probably make seperate topic about it. Tempted to keep it as a little project car for me to play abotu with next year though, as its only the g'box thats knackered on it.

Another quick update for you all. Went up to Wayne's the other night and got the loom out of the donor car, and replaced it all, fitted it in the beast all within two hours on Monday night, so pretty chuffed with that. The new car is looking a little sorry for itself now though, especially since the garage door fell on it lol. :s Progress is still quite slow though with Wayne working, :( but not much left to do now. :) Other car will be scrapped when we have got what we want off it.

Aint been up since the beginning of the week mate, but as far as I know electrics are well on the way, according to Wayne I'd be surprised with how much he has done, however he won't tell me what he has done, so may go up there tonight and inspect lol. Wiring loom was put on beginning of the week though so not massive amounts to do though. And apart from a few bits of bodywork, the car is looking amazing. :D So can not wait to get it back now though, the tension is killing me lol!!! :eek:
