Nice looking car.
I have finally managed to get my new management fitted into the back of my Seat Leon Cupra(i believe this my be the first Seat Leon Cupra in the UK to run E-level ) ,this week and had my first go at doing some hardlines , (i still too do the hardlines for the compressors ,but ran out of pipe and need to get some checkvales aswell)
these pics were from Ultimate Dubs 2011 in March
this was taking a few week later for my feature in Golf+
I was running airlift autopilot on the car for 8months and fancied a changes so after speaking to Luke at Plush Automotive , a deal was done for e-level management but during the waiting for the kit to arrive in the UK i ended up get exo mounts and a new accuair air tank and a other viair 4800cc compressor ordered so the whole kit would arrive at the same time .
I want the controller to be placed some where in the car ,where it was going to be easy to reach when driving and also it could be removed from the car ,so i ended up making a custom insert in the driver's door pocket
thanks for looking and look forward to your comments
On the weekend of the 6/7 of August myself and a group of friends travelled to Holland for MIVW
What a great weekend , even when I got a fright by being told to park in the carpark , that was quickly sorted by Barrie as he was told the same . We got the cars inside the show area and started to give the car a quick wash but it rained on and off for the 1st hour then the sun came out, so we got the cars dried and booked the the cars into the s+s , with in 20mins the judges were over to me to judge the car (all before 11am) which meant me and uncle Terry could go for a quick walk through the show ground as Barrie waited to get judged. By the time Barrie was judge the sun was out and abit of wind about to make it feel abit cooler , everyone of us ended up with bright red face or calfs . The trophies were delay to problem with the screen to show the cars that won unit 4.45pm so time was ticking down as the last checking for the ferry was 7.30pm and we had a 45 mins from the show ,so we all plan to leave at 5.30pm and if anybody won after that mark and chris would go up and the trophies . What I like about MIVW s+s they alway do the group opposite to all the other show so it meant the SEAT. Class was one of the first groups , I meet a new friend for denmark ,Jesper Nissen who has a seat altea which I though would have got 1st came 3rd, I am not sure what came second , too my surprise when they shout out my name for 1st place ,I was abit hyper like a cat on a hot tin roof . So that make it a trophy for every year I have been to MIVW (2nd place 2008, 1st place 2009, 1st place 2010, 1st place 2011)
Well thank nearly the end of the show season here in the uk, which has been kind too me and Leon ,at the last show I was at I came a away with best Seat at Edition 38 (which is the second time in 2 year I have won it ). Now I need too think what to do with the car (a) strip the car and sell it and put all the bits onto a beetle or (b) take the car off the road an do more smoothing to the bodywork and get fully painted ?
