I know the whole black bonnet ish is played out! but you lot are forgettin' the shits pink yo.
Like VERY pink. Pissed off with it being like it now, people always presume its a bonnet from
another car its so different to the rest of the car. Evil or Very Mad

So untill i've got the Muuularr for a respray the whole black an red thing is gonna have to go ahead, like i said HATERS GOWWWN HATEEE afro

Nah not really, my roof and boot are faded bad too,
and the drivers side is kinda faded but thats KIND of coming back red with polish after polish,
it needs a full respray, i think it would make me realise how pink it actually is if i had the bonnet done.

Its a vicious cycle Sad

Yeah, well Toyota had a go (my mom works there n got it done for free)
N they said it wouldn't come up, but im not sure what they even mopped it with etc so...
I Doubt it'll come up though i heard they have clear coats on or some crap so mopping don't
really do shit unless its just oxidized rather than faded

Take it to a body shop dude, if you can wait until after the 12th im getting my car sprayed then and at the moment it looks a right dog, Black 4th gen hatch with a red door, silver wing and a matt black bonnet. See what you think when its done then I can hook you up :-)

Just dont go spraying your bonnet and roof/ boot black.

And im not spraying! that'd be soo chavvy an look like poo. Im just gonna wrap it like my boot,
I know its not much better LOL but atleast it looks clean and tidy, (im a perfectionist, there wont be ONE bubble or crease in it!) chavvy to some but hay hoe

Done a single wiper conversion just, reason being my one windscreen wiper blade has come off on my passanger side which was f*cking annoying, and i needed to go out, and it was raining. but its kind of grown on me now LOL keeping it, gonna get a bigger flat blade though.
Marmite, some people will think its gheyyyyy, i think its a bit different Smile




And another pic from the other day, (wasnt aware it was being taken)




Very Happy

+1.. the backs an issue atm but im gonna need camber adjusters on the back to get it to tuck, cba rollin the arches.

- Set of superlows, and some decent lca's
- Camber adjusters for the back (wont really need them once i have whats next on the list but nice to have anyway)
- 165 50's, gonna refurb the wheels in the new year probably polished dish and lip, gloss white centres
- respray and arches sorted, gloss black plastics, mirrors bumper strips etc (MAY even go white, i love red but its such a hastle to keep red..)

Then a new engine will come last, not too fussed about power atm, im only 18 an all my friends cars aint quick anyway so its not a problem Rolling Eyes

Please keep the wheels all one colour man. Either all polished or all white. It'll look shit otherwise.
