"Jess The Diesel Machine".

Well it was late december 09 and I found a beaut on auto trader. two 110mile roundtrips later and I brought her home.
56 plate 1.9 Mjet Sporting
38,000 miles on the clock FSH
Climate Control,
SkyDome,
Cruise Control,

Within the first week I peeled the "lovely" 'Woodleigh of Chestefields' Sticker off and she stayed like this for about 4 months.





couple of clean reflection shots





I also managed to do a wee bit of damage to one of my alloys on a mahoosive pot hole


Not impressed!

I then decided to get some new plates

the front one is a self adhesive vinyl. Ordered from Crags plate, an Irish website.

Couple more reflection shots


A wee bit bumpy, needs machine polishing I think

Also Ordered a Shark Fin, after a little modding to boost reception it was on, aslo tinted the windows my self, dark smoke, 20% light transmission. i'll get it done professionally next year but for 6 I gave it a shot and it came out pretty well... eventually


Next up was these two little puppies


Thanks very much to Cooks who supplied them quickly and at a very good price

and after a week in the body shop they came out like this















Thanks very much to SIS body repair in Stone, Stafford for a cracking job





need save some money for now but in the pipe line so far is as follows:-
  • new indicator bulbs
  • european reverse light with a red bulb in so the back end is symetrical-ish
  • vinyl bit behind sky dome (will be done this week)
  • either refurb alloys in anthracite or get some abarths
  • angel eyes, daylines without the led's or some "home made" gp s1 headlights taken apart sprayed black and a bi-xenon projector incorporated
  • Remap next year!
  • Induction possibly GSR
  • Get the dash looking something similar to this

and who knows what else
comments welcome

I'll be the first person to mention this...

Needs lowering on Eibachs, they seem to be the best.

I want to do this but the nose is now a couple of inches lower due to the airdam and the speed humps around here are quite fierce :/ will decide next year when funds allow

ooooo white, hadn't even considered it. I was set with either refurb in anthracite, even though the mjet alloys are a right pain in the arse to clean. Or the abarths above.

Re: "Jess The Diesel Machine"

looks really good. Go for the esseesse 18" wheels or some 18" wheels and then lower it and it shouldnt matter to much about the air dam then, also the sporting springs are -20mm so the eibach are only in essence -30mm for the -50mm eibach sportlines.

defiently needs abarth headlamps, you can pick then up for around 250 look much better than the angeleyes and ull pay nearly the same for the S2 lamps.

Think you should de badge the rear aswell and have you thought about a bonnet wrap would look good with you black off the kit and some gloss black wingmirror caps to match

It's up the roaches and the winking man, decided go for a drive out up leek / buxton way then realised they've put an average speed camera limit of 50 along the cat and fiddle (a537)

I was considerin 18" to compensate for the required higher ride height... however I've just managed to scrape the bottom of the nose using my drive way to do a 2 point turn

yeah the black bonnet looks good on "myatts" but I fear it wouldn't have the same contrast with the dark colour of the blue compared to myatts white one

I definately agree with the headlights... I hate the chrome bling but will definately have to wait til next year for them

Also I want to get rid of the Punto and just leave the P =D Just can't bring myself to do it just yet hehe

Thanks for the great comments guys

Re: "Jess The Diesel Machine"

Also get a chrome coated glowing red bulb for your european reverse light as the red bulb can colour the clear reflector too much

PM me your address if you want and I'll post my ones to you as the EVO has a different fitment so couldn't use mine

And these wheels would look gorgeous on your car
