Well hello there y'all... Been a while, here's a wee polo I've rescued, only 22k from new it's a 1.9D. Was an mot failure on a few silly things, one being rotten wings... Here's as bought

I sourced good wings and painted them to match car, fitted a lowering kit + 15" steels painted graphite grey.... then I thought it better to paint complete front end

Then I decided the rest if the car looked bad having a few dings etc so I sourced deep bumpers and repaired a crack

Then went about removing decals/mouldings and fixing the marks on the rest of car
