Andy87's GP

Hey all, just thought I'd show my brum brum off.
1.4 Dynamic - only just started doing some bits and bobs to it.

Current Mods:
*Front upper grill sprayed black [lower will be done soon as I couldn't remove it]
*Badges all black with silver lettering and inner edge
*Debadged "Punto" from boot
Stickers





Future Mods:
*Alloys
*Lower grill
*Coil overs & drop height
Tint rear window and rear passenger windows
Rather large Etnies sticker (probably going on the roof or down the side)
Black/coloured bonnet
*Smoked rear lights
*Angel eyes & Xenon kit (it is Xenon isn't it?)
*Larger rear mudflaps
*Paint brake callipers
2nd batch of custom batches (which will be solid white with red lettering)

Possible Future Mods:
Subwoofer
*Armrest

Now I know a lot of people will be moaning about certain things I've done or will do, but each to their own folks! I don't want mine to look almost identical to anyone else's cars. The large sticker should hopefully be applied to my to my car some point in the next few days.

Not having a dig, just asking, but why;

-a black bonnet?
-etnies sticker?
-Larger mudflaps?

Re: Andy87's GP

Not a fan of the random sticker placement and the huge scale of it. but each to there own and that fish eye lens on your camera really isn't making the car look all that great. Any normal pictures?

I want these things because I like them...? Same reason most people do things to their cars. As I said, each to their own. You won't like things I do, and visa versa. I've seen plenty of cars on here with things I think are ghastly, but I don't slate or question them just because it's not my taste. And the black bonnet (which I actually said black/coloured), I could ask why the black roof? If it's what you wanted it's what you wanted.

BenYoung:
Yeah the sporadic nature of my sticker placement doesn't phase me, because I am going to be putting more on there. And as for the rectangular fisheye shots, I just got my camera out because I was around a friends and he wanted his Golf MK4 shot.

Also, I forgot to mention, I am tempted to add some eyebrows [black/coloured] once I add the bonnet. I'm not being a dick posting these answers, but it's tiresome typing out what I've already typed.

Btw, the bonnet will match the alloys I buy, I was looking at some white & blue ones, but I would prefer black or white.

As for anyone else asking why I'm going to do things, don't waste your and my time. I already said it's each to their own, I will put some more up eventually.

Re: Andy87's GP

Butcher:
Yeah I'm hoping to get some nice black, or very dark grey alloys. I don't want to go down the Abarth look as I know a few people on here are doing it, I'd rather just have my car look slightly different.

And yeah I know, people hate stickers, but me and my mates dig them. I've never been one for the super sleek, smart outer aesthetics. Love ratlook cars, but I know I'd get shizzle for doing it, and tbh I don't want to ruin my car with rust.

Re: Andy87's GP

Trust me, the FF stickers will be on their way soon enough. But yeah, I know most people on here will just say "looks sh*t with them stickers" but I couldn't care less. My car, not theirs ;P

I've just seen a lot of modded GP's and I have noticed people are starting to do the EXACT same thing to theirs time after time - and it makes me a little sad.

Plus, I'm not a hotshot at modding and I don't have an abundance of cash to splash out on stuff.

Re: Andy87's GP

Sorry dude, I didn't mean it as a dickish reply. I just meant it as in we all have different tastes. And as for the mudflaps (I didn't notice it at first) I'm getting them because I go to uni and my car is covered in mud after a day there, so I'm just trying to stop it going all up my doors a little.

And yeah, I know I'll just get crap from people for my choices - which to be honest is a little disappointing. I thought the forum would be people who don't rag on others but I guess not. I mooched around last night and found a bit of bitching between users regarding their cars.

Re: Andy87's GP

you just need to chill, most people end up with cars that look the same because the mods they do make the car look good lol, a forum is all about people saying what they like and what they dont like, i had to learn that the hard way when i joined as well just like many others, if you get buthurt by people saying they dont like things then just stick to commenting on other threads and dont make a members motor thread.

you already knew alot of people wouldnt like the stickers so when someone says somthing you shouldnt need to write a big essay, lifes too short , just smoke a fat head and relax

Re: Andy87's GP

Yeah the Vans sticker is nice, the wind took it when I was laying it though, so it tore the S and folded some others. Need to get the ol' hair dryer to lift it and smooth it back out.

Yeah I know man, I wasn't getting ancy about it, I was just saying it's personal preference, so asking why I was going to do it is a little redundant. End of the day people can like/hate it - but I know mine won't look like the rest of the GP's around Stoke. Already had 4 people ask where I got my black badges - then I said I did them they were a little gutted.

Anyway, I apologise to people if they thought I was being a turd about it, was just saying - and I was a little tired so it probably seemed I was being a ****** ;P

Re: Andy87's GP

I Think with a few more stickers on the boot it will look rather good. You will need to get some alloys on there and I think black alloys would look the best and make sure you do the lights! Not too sure about the bonnet but that's all individual taste.
