Really quite proud of it :rolleyes:
And has given me some inspiration that we all lack from time to time...
 
Isn't this what the blogs are for?

I don't mean to shoot you down or owt but Charlie has had at least 3 different looks and is always evolving so there is no "after"
 
Ok that's fair but I don't need pics ;)

Before...

A green super s

Now...

A green super s covered in dust

Joking aside I'll find some half decent pictures for you

Well yes but thats not my point... to see a change from run down to looked after and how different they do look is great...
I like the look of charlie now great colour but what did she look like the day you got her? Just intrugued. And might give you more inspiration to finish charlie off.

I recon in total including the paint outlay my total is about £500 to £600 pound quite scary tbh... wouldnt trade her for the world (first car :rolleyes:)

Because I've traded stuff on, such as 2 sets of alloys, I reckon mine stands me somewhere in the region of £650 including purchase of car and a full service :D

I love this thread, some real inspirational stuff. I would post pics, but I'm nowhere near done (I hope)
Not near done? Like Karl said Max your car is never done but always transforming...
This thread is for the sad pics when you first got it and it looked a little rough then how your car looks after even a clean and some little mods :)
Ades is a prime example his is now looking really good in just 3 months :)

So did I to be honest mate. I like to conpare how my car was to how it is now. You forget how far they've come
I know I was thinking the same, having a look back to see the changes is quite amazing, and to see that all your hard work might actually be getting you somewhere.
 
Its definitely reminded me that despite getting severely stressed out with it... its worth it and I've achieved what I set out to do... we'll get more people on it soon I'm sure :)
 
I dont have pics of the day I brought her back but it looked like a shed to the point my mum didn't even want it in the drive :D and was not impressed that she had been bought she looked that ugly but here's the oldest one I have :)

And now :D
She's sex on wheels ;) .... Well I think she is and even mum agrees and lets me park her in the drive :D

She's come along way inside and out but she wouldn't be the car she is now without micra pro :D
I can't thank you enough for all the time and hard work you've given me and Mildred in helping to transform her and not only that but teach me a lot :)
I actually LOVE my car with a massive passion and have gone from (if I'm deadly honest) not liking her to being proud to call her mine!
