    Cool My Boring Bora Lockdown Wrap Project!

    Hi guys, It's been years since I posted on here and I was reminiscing through my posts over the weekend so I thought I'd make the effort to upload a little project I decided to take on myself while I'm doing nothing else, having painted and cleaned pretty much everything else around the house inside and out since lockdown started!

    I bought this bora for a few hundred Ģ and it was in surprisingly good condition for its age (2004). Certainly nothing special, a 1.6 16v with 101k miles but I wanted to do this as cheap as possible as its only for fun but I do plan to sell it on when I'm done!

    I'm very close to ordering a set of Fifteen52 Tarmac's but not 100% sure yet...

    Would anyone like to see more?

    Decent little motor this is, got a 04 1.6 16v Bora too haha.

    Good job on the wrap! I assume you're in that kind of trade? Also what blue is that?

    Thanks, it sure is! I do alloy wheel refurbishment but this will be the third car of my own that I've wrapped and I've wrapped 3 other cars for mates. The wrap is made by KPMF and this is a new colour they only released last year called Sky Blue. Its pretty much identical to a popular Ford colour called 'Olympic Blue.'

    Also I had a look at your build before I posted, great progress with yours!

    Picked these up fairly cheap, 18" (Replicas) 8.5J, ET35 and 12mm Forge spacers all round for a bit of width...





    205/40R18 tyres fitted to allow a bit of stretch...

    Looks perfect on the twists, wrap came out great. I am tempted to try on my mk3 but not sure I can pull it off alone.
