You have more photos to put on dude
Oh for anyone wondering why @kanyewest is putting pics on for me is I'm sending them to him on WhatsApp to help me out a little as I'm flat out working on the car....
So update on the car anyway, as per the pics, that's the progress so far and yes, I had to use the old loom in the boot as other one was cut (No biggie, I sorted it) the door looms and door panels are totally different, so I gotta change them Sunday after throwing the other side door on, so once that's done, I'll be getting the car prepped for respray. After the respray I'll be putting coilovers on it, poly bushing it (already done but old so broke) whiteline ARBs, Rainsport 3 tires and a few other things, it'll be getting mapped at some point but with the car not running I'm gonna change timing belt, water pump, fuel pump, clean injectors, change cam and crank sensor and then have a look if it wants to start then. If it does, onto a map, if not, dig deeper into it and of it turns out engine is ******, then you all know what I'm gonna do, pull it out, forge it, different cam, single piece valves and stuff, then a bigger turbo (IF IT DOESN'T RUN) at moment, if it runs I'll be happy with 230BHP. Then I'll be starting work on Katy (Astra Estate)
A true seat owner, moan like a bit*h about the car but you love it to death.
I actually like the Grey and Red, this car is going to be mad when you have finished with it.
Keep up the good work, this is a great thread.
I got no choice but to carry on with it, too much time, blood, sweat and tears thrown into it to give up on it now.
Often times I think I'm failing the car but yeah..... It's gonna be something else for sure. Today I didn't do anything to it so tomorrow is a new day but then I'm off to Trax (zone 16, AEOC stand, come say hi)
not had much time to procrastinate at work today. because i didnt do a lot last week
ill get them on tomorrow b
No worries bro, 2 more incoming.
here are those
forgot to send the others over while i was on my break
this is all i can see when i look at your car man
Haha, maybe I might leave it like this
So I'm looking for a MK1 Leon Cupra R (with the brembos) just to add to the scrap pile I've already got, had the neighbours moaning at me for the amount of cars I got and how they're getting in the way..... in this household we have 5 cars.....
I wanna make that 10.... just because, lol.
Astra Estate 1.9CDTi 150 SRi XP Katy
Ibiza Cupra PD160 Satan
Signum 2.0T Elite 173BHP DJ
Nissank Note 1.4 No Notes
Clio (No details, pile of crap, no one cares)

Fiesta MK6 ST150
Type R EP3 Civic
Audi Q7 4.2 TDi
Audi A4 3.0TFSi Quattro S Line
Just because I can and I want to... And yes I know, no point, why so many cars? Why not build a beast from the money of selling them? Well simple answer for them is, I'm a car guy, I love cars, it's who I am, I don't like partying, I don't do drugs (I smoke Jane but that's just a plant, it just grow that way.) Hell I don't even have to pay any bills, minus insurance and tax, I'm pretty much good to go, misses pays house (I must provide in bed or be a good mechanic cause damn I've got it made) so anyway, why wouldn't I waste my money on cars?
I go to Vegas, I lose my ass I lost my money, annoyed but okay. Deal with it.
I buy a car, lose my ass, I lost my money, cars a total pile of crap, but am I mad? No, cause LOOOOOK AT IT!!!
Sadness man.... if Satan ended like this, words ain't even been invented yet.
agreed but it gives you the main parts for a great build plus would be 2 cars for a while
Don't think they would ever be finished. I'd baby the thing everywhere.... or might Race car build it....
ok a road going one then https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/mk1-cupra-r-bam-for-sale.456535/
I've looked at that..... too clean for me..... I want something to work on and make look MEGA naughty....
So.... Door looms are both changed (super easy to do, took 30 mins a side) so all is now done, windows work, all doors lock, all mirrors work, so that's a good sign.
Anyway, today while playing around under bonnet, there's a loud noise coming off the car, like a broken fuel pump. But I knocked the fuse box, it stopped, moved the fuse board it started again, held it down, noise stopped.... Then electric arcing nice, so I'm guessing electric fault with the car, tomorrow before work I'll take a look into it....
@kanyewest I believe you have a video and a photo to upload, ohhhh and I've been fighting since December to fix the rear wiper, what a total turd that was. But yeah, it now works and works good, need to sort the rear jet out and should be good as the fluid pipe has broken inside the car so I'll sort that tomorrow as well.
oopsie, been lagging! remind me and ill get to it
