The Toad.

So after owning all sorts of stuff from Buicks to Polos I've finally lost the plot and purchased a "bug eye" Multipla. It's a 110 JTD ELX with only 35k miles but it's a bit (err very) rough around the edges. The colour is horrid, actually I've always hated all Multiplas so it was an interesting choice. Anyway I presume you're not after my life story.

For me this is a second car so it's not about performance (obviously), it's about comfort and practicality. We'll see how long that lasts. I am very tempted to slam it, which wouldn't be comfy or practical at all. But it would look sooo right. I think it will eventually end up on airbags, I dont think I could ever go back to creeping over speedbumps after the amount of fun I've had this week.

Anyway, I've not done much to it yet and I've not got much money so it's a work in progress.

Here is a chop I did of the for sale pic to whet your appetite:

before


after


So sadly the missus has peed on the bonfire and insists she would rather go for black and not grey. So we've not even started yet and the plans are already out of the window!

Day 1:

Love this car already. Double electric sunroof, really comfy, good on fuel, should have done this ages ago.



Added some stickers and copious amounts of airfresheners (some kid has puked in the back), also added some handcuffs hanging from the rear bumper and hammered the hell out of some of the dents.





Aww yeah, stickers. Now I'm cool.

Day 2:

Front splitter from a mk3 Golf VR6









Which after a bit of cheeky 5-up speedbump action at high speeds lasted around 3 days...





Must say I like it much more now that it's broken, much more character.

Then after about 5 days some more parts started showing up

Bosch flatblade wipers (yaaay I can seeeee)



K&N filter (again only because the old one was cack)



Floor mats (already sporting a chunk of poo)





PAINT



Rollers, foam brushes and thinners



and whats this?



O HAI

Think that's it for now, more to come.

haha I really want to, you have no idea. BUT I also own a 21 year old Polo which is pretty low and really the Fiat is my daily driver. The Missus has helped me out with some funds for buying this because she will be driving it too but she has catigorically stated that it needs to go over speed bumps. I honestly think the only way I'll get this low is on bags. I reckon that even the eibach spring kits for these would be too low for the bumps round here.

Anyway, debadged it the other day and I've bought some more paint (couldn't live with the idea of satin black)









On top of the paint I've got coming for the body I got some for the wheels too which is already here so there'll be a ghetto back yard refurb job coming up this weekend.
