Build update on my 96kW Polo

Post by Kid_Rocc » Thu Mar 23, 2017 7:21 am

So after purchasing my beautiful 96kW diesel aka Deadpool, I've been busy with some minor mods

I had the mirrors, re-done them piano black, ordered a g6 gti gear lever and Golf 6 GTi steering, just waiting on an airbag. Purchased a beautiful set of Seat Cupra seats which was a fun clean up.

Found out that stripping those seats is a pain but needs alot of patience and some omo to clean, stay away from softener. Big thanks to Kyle from Hobo Detailing for the advice when getting those seats stripped

Here's some pics of the seats before and after new seat upgrade.

Will add more pictures of the car as time goes

It's from golf 6 gti and had to do a small mod on the leather to fit around the bracket but feels and looks like it was made for it

So this weekend I invested some time into my car. Got it up on some stands, rims stripped and got them cleaned on the inside. Also resolved my annoying oik leak from the tandem pump. Did the calipers in red and after a weekend of tlc for the deadpool, I think it's time for a cold one...ImageImageImageImageImageImage

There is no such thing as OEM 9n/9n3 leather seats, they were all reupholstered by dealerships.
