    Evening guys and girls!

    Im back on the forum! after 2 1/2 years without an ibiza cupra, experiencing a volvo s60 d5,nissan 200sx s14a with 300hp, bmw 535, a saab 93 aero sport saloon Im back!!

    This is a smart example, with a few things to tidy up and finish off to look pretty! Im sure you all recognise this little lady, she has had 2 owners that i know of on the forum!

    Going to paint some engine bay bits, tidy up some scuffs and scrapes, get new intercooler pipework and im looking for a new exhaust, so if anyone wants to swap exhausts im all ears on offers!

    However here she is:

    Well hello!

    did a few bits today, changed the oil and filter and spark plugs..(boring)

    Excuse the image quality, bob iPhone camera!

    and did this:

    The red was very sun dyed and looked, well abit rubbish tbh, so too make the FMIC a little more subtle as its not in the best shape, the black hoses will keep me happy for abit!

    Then i proceeded to fit this:

    The plastic trim was cut to fit and it was tidied up some what from what it look likes in the picture!

    all in all an alrite day of work, since i managed to clean and polish her as well!

    Next weekend, re-painting the calipers i think..possibly some other interestering things, but who knows!

    Thanks all

    Yeh i like the red too, but you got it right, i got to stamp it my own way!

    I did think of anthracite with a red lip! that could be interesting

    possibly kawasaki green, i have done the pink previously on a 200sx!

    I'd go with anthracite mate,think that would look ace!! If I still had the car now I'd have black intercooler pipes with anthracite or black wheels. Think silver and black works so well!! Look forward on seeing what colour u go for,watching this thread closely :)

    Also found a loverly exhaust problem today while having the gearbox oil changed! a nice rust bracket and a nice hole in the exhaust just after the cat! So something to do at the weekend!

    Looks like its going to be a busy weekend!

    Hopefully will get some warning lights turned off as well as the airbag light and engine light is on!
