    Hey all!

    Picked up my Flash red Beeza 2 months ago for a pricey £2800 (low miles and vgc, though :D )

    I haven't planned any big budget Engine/suspension/bodywork mods, mainly because i need the money for uni, so instead i thought i'd make an FR replica, which can be done cheaply..

    nothing exciting , got future plans such as custom backbox and tints, with the POSSIBILITY of lowering :p

    Anyway, enjoy!

    Here she is when i first picked her up..

    The first thing i did was take the rear mudflaps off, they make the back look hideously fat, ;)

    Then i found a set of 16 inch FR wheels with good Bridgestones for sale, which i bought from a member called Fozworth (jamie) for a pretty decent £200, then the next day, i colour coded a new set of side rubstrips with some filler primer, a few cans of Halfords Flash Red, and a lot of rubbing..

    Few weeks later, i decided to colour code the front calipers, and do the rear drums black..

    simple enough job, bit of white spirit etc.. :D

    Think it is a great mod that transforms the car's look, without looking out of place or chintzy.. :)

    finally, i decided to get rid of the awful chrome grille pack at the front, and replace it with the honeycombe ones from the FR..

    One problem was i didn't think i needed to order the plastic foglamp surround bit (since i don't have any :happy:), but it turned out the bottom bit didn't fit the standard plastic cover things (if that makes sense)...

    [​IMG]

    But i still think it looks much better for it, they were a right pain to fit though!

    And then the all important addition...

    Agree! i'm sure i'll do it eventually, it looks like a Polo Dune or something, espesh from the back... i'm thinking 25MM at front, 35MM at back, anyone done this?

    I've also just picked up a few interior bits,

    I ordered the Cupra stitched leather handbrake cover...

    and picked up an awesome looking MOMO leather gearknob cheap from a mate at work...

    Also planning on picking up a decent Head Unit at the end of the month, the standard one is irritating, mostly because of the annoyingly invisible display (which isn't backlit during daytime) :D

    trust me 35mm is nothing, really needs to be 50mm+, it's costly but it's worth the drop you'll get
