Dash is out

Today we removed the dash and all the sound deadening from behind, its surprising how much the sound deadening weighed actually!!

We made a bit more progress today and were unfortunately a bit slack in taking pictures, today our aim was to remove the dash and sound deadening

Removed a few bits and pieces

Coming out!!

Finally it came out!

This is with everything else still in place and just the dash removed

And then everything else removed (nearly)

An overview shot

First new parts arrived

The first parts I’ve ordered arrived today from http://www.rallydesign.co.uk , a Lifeline Zero 2000 Fire Extinguisher, Bonnet Pins and an FIA Cut off switch

Busy night

Tonight me and my brother took to the car armed with screwdrivers, a ratchet, sockets and some torq bits

So these are how the car started

First bit of weight saving done lol

Then it started to rain so got the tarpaulin over the car, opened the doors and boot and got a nice light in there (I burnt my finger on it :()

And this is how we left it

Got a car!!

Ok well after much searching I decided on a VW Lupo and I found one up in Northwich, Chesire.

So I hired a trailer, thanks to A Class Motorhomes in Swindon who have some impressive bits of kit down there….and with a bit of help towing it (don’t ask lol) we got it back to Bristol!! Only a 10 hour round trip….

So more about the car its a 2000 VW Lupo Sport 1.4 16v with a few additions, namely: Raceland Manifold, Decat, Powertech Induction Kit , GTI leads, Gearbox from an S , Weitec HiCon GT Coilovers.

Work on it shall start very shortly and I think the first thing on the list to get done is to strip it down and then onto the roll cage.
