Spykes Jerky BP0

Before we start, it doesn't need a Lucino Grill or any different Grill for that matter. I don't want to lower it any further and the lights are fine as they are.... It's my car and I like it as it is.

Ok, suppose I should have put this thread up a long time ago... but oh well.

Won it for £200 on the Bay, it looked like this when I got it:

I stripped it down and started de-rusting + painting stuff:

Found these holes, so had them welded:

Undersealed everything + Tommo's old suspension, all new brakes and braided hoses:

Sprayed the wheels steel Grey:

Fitted a Laguna Splitter:

Tidied and painted up engine bay:

i like that alot, my favourite colour and good to see someone getting welding done instead of scrapping them! looks tidy
Really like this build. I dont imagine it cost a lot to buy or mod, and looks amazing! Shows, with a bit of tlc and some paint, the standard looking gtis can look great

It worked out that after MOT and TAX it cost around £850 including buying the car too.

Thanks for the comments
Nice Spyke, I like the look of it with that colour on the wheels. Now I know what colour to spray mine :thumb:

Good to see another Alaska blue ph1 too

It came on Raceworx's P2 GTi, I had it off him when he got Phil to swap it to the 3 inch system. It sounds good but did need alot of work from Phil to get it fitted properly. It did have a titanium tip on it which was rattling so got Phil to cut it off and put a Stainless one back on.
glad you decided to post it dude, getting the credit it deserves.

ill tell you first hand this thing moves and sounds as good as it looks; savage.
