Vehicle: Mazda Demio
Thought i would start a new thread about my most recent project,
Its a Mazda Demio Gen 2 (a favorite beginner car from gran turismo)

The car was bought nice and cheap, completely stock, only 65k miles on the 1.5l, 75bhp engine

Image

The first thing i purchased for the car was a stereo and uprated speakers, all tucked away in the doorcards, no exciting audio build.
then picked up a set of Brock B2's. a few stickers as well, going for a nice JDM theme,

Image

as you can see, it sits like a monster truck, the next thing that needed addressing was the ride height.
after countless hours scouring the internet and forums i finally found a solution,
It seem that with slight modification i could get Volkswagen coilovers to, I picket a set up cheap and took them to my friend who's a fabricator.
he cot come holes, trimmed some bits, and many hours later they were on the car!!
unfortunately the wheels were too wide to get the car low, and the space in the arch is limited so at present i am stuck with steels.

Image

Next on the list was accessories.
I ordered a genuine Train hoop from japan, And commissioned a knuckle duster gear knob from someone on facebook.

Image

Image

Then some more vinyl, some arch pulling/rolling for clearance, just standard bits and bobs.

Image

Image

And lastly, today, i fitted a square front number plate,
Rear spoiler (modified from a suzuki ignis sport)
and de-wipered the rear, bunged with a skateboard wheel.

Image
^this is just a teaser, i will get some good pictures when i can get the car clean and get some nice shots.

TBC!

AAAAAAAhhhhhhh please please please tell me what suspension you used? I have a 2003 demio DW, 1.5 and have it on SSR mk2 Alloys, but it needs dropped so so bad, and trying to find info about a good drop is crap.

What you have done with yours is awesome!
