Krispie G's French Built 1.0

Recommended Posts

This is my first project so i dont know what she'll turn out like :p

 

I bought 2000 5dr 1.0l with 142000 ish miles back in september from my parent mainly because i know its history and how its been treated over the past few years

It's a good strong car aside form the paint and bodywork, 15 years of stone chippings and driving roads will eventually catch up with ya :p

 

The paint place has stated to peel, the bonnet is covered in paint chips, and the drivers side rear arch is rusting due to stone chippings

 

So far my mods consist of :

 

Stoptech slotted rotors :D

139db train horn

 

de-badged bonnet (via natural selection :p ) 

 

4 piece wind deflector kit (is yet to arrive)

 

 

 

My plans for the future are:

 

40mm lowering springs with new shocks (unless i can get cheap coilovers )

 

Alloys of some description (dont know what yet )

 

led rear lights 

 

front splitter 

 

large JDM mirror

 

JDM gear knob

 

Shotgun / Shakotan exhaust 

 

External oil cooler

 

jap stamped plates 

 

bonnet dampers 

 

I also have to remove all the dents and scratches 

 

photowise i'll get them up asap

:thumbsup:

That's fair enough, I'm in full-time employment and money is also tight! :D :p

Hence why I've not done anything to the car in MONTHS!

 

Don't worry, it's not a race, and there's no fun in going broke trying to mod your car.

Also since getting the wind deflectors, I have been given a SARD sports air filter, was originally bought for a 3s-ge celica but never fitted so now I have it :-P

So i think its about time for an update on my project :P Not much has happened since my first update, i'm still savaging the internet everyday looking for parts :P and it has finally paid off, i stumbled upon 1.3 vitz for breaking and i took the tein lowering springs from it and i got a TRD  oil cap to tidy up the engine bay a bit, now just to wait for them to arrive :)

My parts arrived on Friday and were only ordered Thursday evening 😀 I added the 2 caps to the engine, looks a bit better 😃

My Tein lowering Springs also came, I'll give them a clean before I put them on

I plan to paint the rocker cover over easter as I won't have time between college and work and having my hand in a cast after breaking a bone in my hand 😭 The springs should be fitted around the same time all going well 😃
