    Cheers mate! Thanks for sharing that man, i personally quite like it but i can see your angle on it hahaha! I'm planning on running something different soon anyway, something that says SEAT but in a 90's style, do ideally poverty as hell hahaha

    Well driving a bagged car is fun! Literally every set of lights i pull up too i air out at and blow minds hahaha, discovered i have a leaking check valve that i'll replace after Wothersee, give it a few smacks and it free's up lol



    Gained a few stares at college lol



    Does little scrapey boi's too!





    I just love this thing.

    Also, for now i'm running a temporary boot build that i knocked up when fitting the air. Considering it's just a quick lash up i actually think it looks alright!

    I'm back from my amazing tour of Wothersee!

    If you haven't done it, do it next year. i'm going back.





    I went with my mates in there cars as i left ferry bookings too late!!






    Driving through Germany and into the Alps was amazing





    I'm available to hire for model shoots also xo



    Here's a selection of the cars i photographed, there is an unbelievable standard of cars out there.

















    A personal favourite of mine, Josh Gresswells Open air!







    Best holiday ever. just gutted i couldn't take JDO!

    In light of this, i'm building JDO with my deadline set for Wothersee 19'. Should be plenty of time to 1.6 convert it!

    Mate I think this wee car deserves something off the hook, like dropping a 1.8T BAM engine into it, 180bhp from a TT, pics are awesome, was waiting on your posting up something lol

    Hi again, haven't posted for a while!

    Been a busy few weeks, many shows have been on and i've been flat out with college and work

    Vw days is next!



    Modnats was a decent camping show, Josh's Accord is one awesome little car!



    I've ruined my roof however. Decided it would be a great idea to get my mates to sit on it for a picture, thats now left the front of the roof covered in creases. Bad move.

    Cov Motofest was decent too!







    And to end the day, a nice pint down by the old quarry.



    Oh, not forgetting i've got hold of some 6N2 GTI Running gear. Engine, gearbox, looms, literally everything bar the shell. Will be stripping JDO in September for some mega TLC and the conversion! Big plans!

    Hello again all,

    Been MEGA busy, so had next to no time to actually update.

    I'll start with the show side of things!

    FRANCE 2018 - VW Days



    Trip to Halfords to being the trip, GB stickers and REDEX for one big cleany boi



    Planned to tape up me car for the drive, ran out of tape, standard.



    Departed at dover, france here we come!



    by

    Pitched up and explored the show, bailed out good friend Fidowicz out too and let him and Bill crash in my tiny tent, fantastic sleep however...



    Shows like this are the best for me. Switch off, chill out and dick about with your mates.



    We had to also put to bed who's Lupo is quicker... needless to say i lost









    Awesome show, can't wait till next year!

    Been another few busy weeks!!!

    Players 2 weeks ago, what a weekend that was.

    Untitled by Lewis Deakin, on Flickr









    Awesome first day, for me this is always the best car show show of the year. It's awesome.

    I did however sleep on two hotel room floors for the duration of the weekend, air beds are a god send for free hotel use.....







    And of course as with every year, fish and chips on the beach on the sunday evening, winner.





    Very close to 110K now too! it just keeps going!



    Also had a bash at refurbing the dish i damaged last year, and considering i've never attempted this before, i'm actually really happy with the outcome!







    All i want to do now is to flat down the welds you can see on the inside of the lip! They just need blending in a bit more!

    Hi all!

    JDO's still going strong... 111,000 miles on him now!!







    Tyres all changed, tried my mates BM8's on while i was at the garage, perfect daily rims!



    My mate Hayden really makes me want a £300 shitter..... This Lupo literally owe's him £540, is on 180,000 miles (This is 110,000 more than the average life of a UK car) and doesn't miss a beat.









    And finally, inside at Fitted UK 2108. This was a massive deal for me, it's been my target achievement for 3 years to get into this show.

    Next stop, E38. My last show in JDO this year before i pull it apart (again) and do the 1.6 conversion.

    Looking good man! Love this build

    The average life of a UK car is only 70k miles!? That's nuts! I'm in the US and just bought my first car with under 140k miles....My MKIV Golf had 146k when I started driving it (at 160k now) my B5 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro had 155k when I bought it (Sold at 161k) and my E60 BMW 530xi had 164k when I bought it (crashed at 180k) my "new" 2013 A4 has only 57k and I'm pumped lol

    Yup! Most UK cars only cover 6-7K miles per year! With the average life being 7 years, so you can genuinely find essentially brand new cars getting chopped in against new models... The UK's also absolutely tiny, (You can drive from one end to the other in under a day with ease) so we don't rack up that many miles (I've done 49000 in the 2 1/2 years my cars actually been on the road)

    I suppose thats fairly average miles for those cars! I can imagine with the length of the roads out there they've had fairly easy motorway lives? Cars over here get ragged beyond belief

    57k is mega low! Lowest millage car i've owned was a 2001 Polo on 29K hahaha

    Good morning, hi, Shalom Jackie.



    Frame banging + Intentional front air outs + ripping a cats eye out the floor = one written of subframe.
    Unless you can weld.



    Fixed, i've welded some PHAT 4mm plates onto the bottom, so i'll rub through these instead of killing the subframe a bit more. Just a sensible bodge to keep the car going for now.





    Went out about Leam to get some local pictures





    Christ i can't wait to rip this thing apart and start again

    Dude that front flex pipe looks too new for me, you have to put more effort!

    Nice works on the subframe, really don't want to see mine after this

    So, whats new?



    Done a small wiring mod, meaning i now have twin indicators



    Looks so fresh now.

    Also went to E38 on the weekend just gone, as always a mint show.









    Comparison of 2017 - 2018



    I've also just been given a 1.4 16v Sport Lupo open air as a donor car too..... so JDO is going to be going to a whole new level.
