Just thought I'd share some progress pics.
When I first got it. Nice and stock.

She got dropped!!

Big bumpers are on. Also, the Chinese door handles. These things work like a charm!!

Someone wanted some black big bumpers to trade with his factory red ones so who was I to complain!!


Here's the project and the daily driver(in need of a 16V chin)

Next up. 2.0 is going in with 1.8 head, going to the bodyshop for some dent removal and G60 fender flares are going on. Oh and a 16V chin for the white one with a little drop!!!

Re: (werksmini)

Believe it or not I only use Armor All on the bumpers. It keeps it really black. I do wash my car once a week and apply Armor All after each wash. I got the bumpers from a local autoparts here in Vancouver for $100 CAN each.

They are quite a bit brighter than the regular 55 watt ones.

I just use some Apex 40/40 springs with some Bilstiens on all 4. This is a fairly budgeted project as we are in the process of purchasing a house.

Re: (16v)

looks good, but I too kinda liked it on the small bumps.
Do you still have the parts from the small bumper setup? I have a red coupe with bigs I want to convert to smalls. I need both bumpers and the lower front panel that the chin spoiler attaches to

I was thinking, man that is a nice car in that first picture. Then all of a sudden someone came and snatched your great looking small bumpers and left you with those big monster bumpers, Whoa!
I would have kicked somebody for that.
But still a nice car.

Yeah I know but I will have both the small bumper one and the big bumper. The white one has the Euro smalls. Just don't know where to get the Euro small rear bumpers. Just need to get the red one to the bodyshop so everything matches up and no more dings or scratches http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
