Not done an awful alot to the Bora but this year hopefully will be a big change!!
So recently I have changed the expansion bottle, Removed all the PCV system and replaced with brand new. I blew a front coilover had this replaced too. I have wrapped the intercooler pipes in black vinyl as the spray was chipping grrhhh lol so Iv just been cleaning things up ready for a bigger turbo and spec 2 remap soon.
Hopefully before Ultimate dubs the wheels will be refurbed too.
Here are some pics from today after a quick clean.

Picked this up reallly cheap so I had to have it.
I trial fitted it and I am quite happy with the fitment to be honest.
I just dont know whether its my cup of tea.

Any thoughts?

Cheap and cheerful only cost me about £25 for the paint haha
Its easy mate get some sand paper, masking tape and paint.
The better you prep the wheels the better the finish will be.
