Re: my new bravoooo

Update!
Checked the engine, Everythings all good, so gonna stick with the 1.4 till something happens.

My Alloys started to crack and the tyres were way beyond the limit so i've stuck the steelies on until sunday, My mate has sold me a set of 16's off a golf, just gotta get the Wobbly bolts, unless someone has a set they will sell

Debadged the whole car aswell (Minus the front badge ) and also removed the rear wiper (just gotta figure out how to take the whole thing off!)

I also did abit a bodge with the folding seats, as im a bmxer, my bikes gotta get in the car, and the folding seats aint really useful as that bar gets in the way!!.

Would upload some pics, but i cant upload anymore for some strange reason or cant delete any. Someone help me!!!!


Upcoming Plans:
Fit 16's
New Front bumper (fogs?)
HGT Interior or Alfa Seats
N/S Electric window motor replacement
Marea Lights
Lowering
Exhaust

Re: my new bravoooo

look forward to seeing the final finish to it!!, do you know what the centre bore is on these golf wheels, might not be to good if you put em with the wobbly bolts and they dont fit, my guess would be they are 72.1mm, so youll need some spigot rings, you can get a set off ebay for 4.

Re: my new bravoooo

Are they the bbs wheels on a mk2 golf gti?

For the wiper motor you need to remove the trim on the boot and take the motor out from there

Theres an attachment button that will allow you to upload pics if your having trouble in the gallery

You could always do a van conversion if space is a premium...

Re: my new bravoooo

The wheels are off a MK3 aint BBS either , get them on sunday, i shall upload a pic for then , I'll check them without the rings first and see what happens. I shall let you know.

I Shall get to work on the wiper motor, i got myself one of those plugs to fill it in so it's all good, I'll donate as soon as i get some money in my account, which is tomorrow as its PAYDAY!!!!.

Van conversion would be sweet, we'll see how it goes

Cool Re: my new bravoooo

Right, finally donated so i got unlimited space now so be aware 56k people, PIC HEAVY

When i first got the car:


Punto in the background

Got her home and started working straight away


Wheels from the punto, 14 inch MK2 Sporting ones, 50 Scrappy

Fitted them on and washed her


Replaced this

To this
Whats a good radio with no decent speakers?

Its small, but its powerful
Door Speakers

Did the front door speakers too, also sorted the N/S Window motor, was slow as hell, my girlfriend thought it was funny


They had a sale on in halfords, 20 for a Filter, twas payday so why not


I Also had a dodgy fuel sender unit, so i never knew how much fuel i had so i kept running out, all fixed now though with a 20 replacement



ALL OF A SUDDEN.
my tyres were bald from being cheap! (no bad driving )

so the steelies went back on for a while.......

Until yesterday when i won a set of wheels on Ebay
Some Mangel 16 inch alloys , Picked them up got home, fitted the back two, went on fine, but the front two.....





you might see....


Closer..........

Slightly rubs, but thats not the main problem.........


ahhh.... Bit too close, had to stick the steelies on the front for now, didnt want to risk driving to work this morning, Especially with the speedbumps at my local Tesco's i blame the 205/55/16 tyres!

And the only thing i done today is take the wiper off, still aint taken the motor out yet


Theres still alot to do so i shall keep this updated
Bumper and grille need replacing or tidying

And the mirrors, Maybe C/C them?

We'll see

p.s someone must have some 205/40 or 45/16 tyres somewhere!

Re: my new bravoooo

Looking clean

205/55 R16?!! The normal size is 195/45R16 for these cars, to keep the gearing the same... I'm actually surprised they fitted in normal arches!

As for cc mirrors, I have a set of red mirrors here somewhere if your interested

Why not put on an Abarth kit if you can find one? Looks brilliant on a red Bravo

Keep us all updated and keep up the good work!

Re: my new bravoooo

Better off getting some nice 15" alloys and saving the extra money, 16" tyres are going to cost you...

Shame on you for putting it through an automatic wash.

Re: my new bravoooo

Apologies for the Automatic car wash , i couldn't be bothered to clean it!
As for the cc Mirrors and a abarth bodykit, i would love to
I posted a status on my facebook page asking if anyone has a set of smaller wheels, but no reply, although i did find a set or used but good con Goodyear 205/45/16 tyres on Ebay, 2 tyres at 39.99, Could get them and take them down to the local garage and get them fitted, as for now, i got two alloys on the back and two steelies on the front, looks rather silly.
