So this is how the car looks now, not much different just dirty! But I have spent a bit over the past 3 months on her:
  • KYB Shocks all around
  • New LUK clutch
  • New windscreen
  • New mats
  • Mini service for the winter
  • Fiat headlight protectors

Also painted some interior plastic with Rover Stone Grey but not sure about them as they don't go very well with the light grey interior plastics. I also tried Peugeot Graphite Grey but thought it was too dark!

Mods to come in the next two weeks:
  • Exhaust
  • Flat wipers
  • Wind deflectors
  • Interior plastics
  • Meta remote central locking

Mods to come in the next Month:
  • Have a dent in the boot done
  • Fit 1.8 calipers, pads and vented discs
  • Refit o/s side skirt
  • GSR if oldschool can sort one out and get back to me. I was going to do a DIY one but replaced the filter not so long ago so I'm going to wait for a gsr I think!

What I was hoping to do was retrim the interior this summer but due to cut backs at work my hours were cut down so I didn't have the funds but I will hopefully get it done sometime in the future! I was also thinking of tinting the windows but not sure if it's the look I want!

Re: Bravo

klemster how did you get the spoiler on?

Change the glass,
Drill holes in the glass,
Or simply glue it.

Your car is ace. Oh yeah I personally don’t like tinted windows.

Nice seeing this thread noticed again! For the spoiler I just stuck it on. Just use any polyurethane (PU) adhesive sealant, tigerseal is mentioned on here alot but there are loads on the market and they all do the same thing really.

I was waiting for a GSR but the lack of a response to any PM I sent put me off totally so when the weather warms up I'll get cracking on my custom jobbie !!
