    So this year i moved house
    i used to live out in the stick's & drove this
    it made perfect sense for the crap roads ,tractors leaving shite on the roads etc & for crossing fields when out shooting
    Now i live in the center of town & trying to park the thing was a problem + only shoot on range now
    so a smaller car was needed
    first looked at a fiat 500 but after a test drive it wasn't for me then saw the 197 at a local garage
    after a test drive i px'd the truck & the 197 was mine
    The day i got it parked up at work until i could tax it
    The first thing was the exhaust tip's £8 each from the bay of e
    The one thing i didn't like about the car was not having a spare wheel so got a set of silverstones
    to use so i could refurb the std wheels then use a silverstone as a spare
    on closer inspection one wheel was knackered so got another two then decided to refurb the silverstones instead
    Meanwhile a cup spoiler was bought painted in black to match the wheels & fitted

    Last weekend was sunny so gave me a chance to give the car it's first wash & polish since iv'e had it & to fit the stickers
    And so to today new rubber fitted to the silverstones & fitted to the car
    Just one more mod to do will be the front splitter then it's done for now
    And that's all for now thank's for looking

    Looks very well! Interested in the cup spoiler, would absolutely love one but they seem a bit expensive for what it is.

    Where did you get it from? Think I'll get one eventually buy not at the right price lol

    Cheers guys
    ///M been thinking about blacking the headlights i used to be into impreza's & a lot of folk used to paint the inside of the head light matt black which involved putting the light in the oven for half an hour to soften the glue then prizing it apart painting then reassembling it i was wondering if i could do the same with my lights ?
    I then saw some new black lights on e-bay but @ £170 for the pair its a bit steep
    Roshi i got the spoiler from renault as i wanted the proper one they are pretty expensive @ £240 but worth it
    you can get replica ones that are cheaper but i don't know about the quality & second hand ones are pretty rare

    The voice of attention to detail has spoken. And i agree 100%. Would look tremendous with Black badges, door handles, exhaust trims (?) etc.

    Great looking example !

    Even better with full aero kit smoothed out and painted black also.

    Kinda makes me want to buy a red one!

    Looks spot on, much better than a FIAT 500!

    Yesterday ordered the front splitter should be here wed/thurs
    quick question how does the std rubber strip come off?
    Does it just pull off?

    Splitter arrived today & fitted after work totally transforms the front end
    Now should I go the full hog & fit the side skirts?

    Yes do it. Then decide you don't like them and sell them to me for a fraction of what you paid:wink:

    Will look great with the full kit. I'm sorely tempted myself

    Looks great. Please don't ruin it with all black badges/handles/everything. Just do basic mods. They look brilliant with just the front splitter, but considering you have the Cup spoiler too, you might as well get the skirts.

    I've left mine fairly standard on the outside, I'm not really a fan of extra bits stuck on everywhere but that's my taste.

    Seats, brakes and suspension next, then drive it hard.

    Yes mate, looks great. Definitely go for the skirts. And then I'd paint them gloss black along with the splitter and spoiler, handles, badges and bullets. And then get some projectors and smoke the fogs. Would look fully badass I reckon.

    While we were looking for ours I saw a blacked out UR 197, thought it worked SO well.

    BOOM! Agreed mate!

    I forgot the diffuser on my list of things to paint huh? That's a beauty. Like that splitter too.
