I was drunk when making that post. Sorry.
Still a big With the car. Keep it up!
More Updates and more pics of the women!!
I am back, with updates.
while I was out, not posting, I was busy with something else.
one day I fell off the bed and knocked my head. then a new tailgate was born
some poliurethane foam, my favourite. also got rid of the ulgy taillights, and put back the nice red/chrome ones. which will be smoked later on
cut it to my desire
some fiberglass was added
hard days of sanding
a little check on the car
and was ready to send to the paintshop
while the tailgate was out, I spent my time doing something else
a red lip to my brock b1's
which came out really good considering the methods I used.
then another surprise, my extra gauges arrived. mounted them the same day
I got them off ebay. quantitec or something like that. I really liked the blue theme

glad to see so many positive reactions. I have a feeling you will enjoy the next set of pics
@ jetta2dr16v this is the foam I use for my ghetto tuning
with the car finally ready, I started going to all the tuning events in the country. it was fun, had a great time
I also formed a group called Ghetto Cult, with two of my friends. the seat ibiza and skoda fabia which are also part of my work at the garage.
the first tuning show I attended, in september under this formation.
here is the new tailgate and smoked tailllights.
and a little prize in the end...
on my way to another show which also brought me some great motorway pics
this was at the first King Of Europe in Romania, drift and expo.
great cars and great weather.
as soon as I got back, an opportunity with new wheels appeared. so I got myself a set of brand new borbet T's which soon I took them to the paintshop. this is what came out.
new mirrors, DTM style.
electric, with blue tinted glass
this is at another show, unfortunately the weather was not that great.
same formation with the boys
the second day the rain was a little lighter. more people arrived
another week, another event
my lovely mirrors
forgot to mention that a few months back my car was rewarded with a full paint polish. it doesn't really show in the pictures, but you really need shades to look at it close-up.
having fun with the suspension and a dummy hand
2 weeks later, another tuning event, this time inside a mall. much better... and safer
the skoda fabia couldn't make it. technical problems
and some pictures with romanian chicks. I know some of you were waiting for these...
top car of the show (the third prize of this kind)
and a "group picture" with all of them

I'm... surprised... I had no idea this was going to be shown to me when I clicked the link, but hell, as soon as I started reading, I couldn't stop... sometimes, in the beginning, I were doubtful, but the end result is... well, I just can't say anything else than I'm surprised and amazed, over the amount of work and numerous rebuilds of the car's style, just as with my Sofine in the beginning of her years... dayum does your car reminds me of her;
I even for a while had the same "idea" for the wheels:
My favorite shots:
I just can't dislike the car in this shape, even if I'm all for the german/oem way, this angry front and rear makes me... smile.

on another note you have awesome skills and the trophies show it, with half the work you put in to that you should come back with a tex car and dominate all.
I do not work for pizza or beer.
First time I see your thread, and all I can say is that I love your always evolving project, the way the ideas flow going from conventional to innovative.
Some times better, some times a bit worse, but in all moment we can see your great skills.
Love the girl too.
ok, glad to see you like the car (most of you). I managed to convert some oem+ enthusiasts to apreciate my ghetto golf, that has to be good.
salutari si baietilor care mi-au scris in romana. mult spor la treaba si voua!
as for the car, the winter project will be the music and interior... I hope.
see you soon!
i have so many different emotions for this car. good and bad.
if i had seen this car at a glance on the road (especially in the US) i would laugh but to see the work done to it.... and for the most part its seems properly done. im very impressed with the out come.
and this just goes to show you... girls dont give a rats butt what you put under your hood hahaha.
Thats some quality craftsmanship right there!
i love it at the same time i hate it.
i think you should do something about your front bumper - get rid of the mesh, or find a better way to attach it and get some circle foglights in the corners to fill in the empty space.
good job and good luck!
