People, finally created a project log Very Happy
Now you guys can watch my sedan becoming nicer and nicer!

I am the owner since 10-02-2012 and bought the sedan from a guy who didn't treat it like it should be treat'n..
The man never washed the car and didn't suspend the car to put it in a storage in the winter times.

It's a shame to leave these sedans in the winter times Crying or Very sad






Here some exterior pix just a couple of days before i bought the car:
I bought the car without the mudguards and the 15" steel wheels,
(they were taken off..Sad) the car was on the 13" OEM steel wheels

When the sedan was imported from Germany to The Netherlands in April 2010 (before i've got him),
only a little 2cm rust spot was on the car at the right wheel arches,

The next photo's complain everything about never wash it,
and not suspending the car to put for a sleep inna garage in the winter times.....


2 years later....
















The left side wasn't that bad but already start rusting..

The right sill was fuck-up.. Shocked







The right sill was rotting like hell Evil or Very Mad,
just pressed easily with one finger through the sheet metal..
So the first thing that had to be done with my sedan,
was the recovery/paint job for the wheel arches and sills.

Here the results after the paintjob..

































Also the complete bottum is sprayed with tectyl/tar,
man mi just love this new fresh paint! Very Happy

So this was the recovery treatment, soon i will update and post pix of lowering the sedan, it's already dropped more then before! Cool

When i bought my sedan it had 4cm lowering springs on it.
In the front koni shocks, in the rear OEM shocks on 15" steal rims with 185/55 tires.

4cm springs:






It wasn't low enough so i tried these 6cm springs on 15" EK4 vti rims - 6J ET45 with 195/50 tires:







Again wasn't it low enough so i bought a megan racing coilover set on 15" enkei ignis rims - 5J ET45 with 185/55 tires:







Still rollin on this suspension, pretty stiff.
No problem with thresholds and bumps when i'm driving with one passenger.

I found at the local yard a OEM Honda bumper lip of a black silverstone hatch.
Almost fits perfectly, didn't know that even the front bumpers are different of the hatch and sedan..

Better then a Golf 3 lip isn't it haha Razz
