Like it's brothers before it, I added my "signature" stripe of plastidip to the lower doors.
In my opinion it narrows the doorline visually, filling in the vast blank space and actually drawing more attention to the cutlines on the flanks.
Not to mention saves the door edges from damage.
I have a red ibiza 1.9TDI FR on a 54 plate, the painted trims on the outside of the 2 front doors and back quarters........
Are these standard painted because i have never seen another FR with painted door trims they are all black.
Have had a build thread up of my car on two other sites but a SEAT site so thought it would be only fair to update on here also. ;)
Pics the day I put down the deposit in it. One test drive and it sealed the deal. Bear in mind I was coming from a 1.4 so its easy to see how I became smitten...

Fingers crossed and all being well, I should have my car back by the weekend, all lovely and resprayed.
Obviously I won't be using any abrasives for a couple of months like polish, glaze or cleaner wax but what can I do to keep the car clean and protected?
Can I wet wash as normal, any...
This is the closest thread I could find to match the topic... if there is another one suitable - can you please move it :) Ta!
I wouldn't normally ask about anything like this as I initially think it's a waste of money :)
However - the misses is now in love with the idea...
Has anyone on here done this mod?
Saw a black Cupra with BTCC Kit at Portstewart on East Sunday (very big cruising place/day in N. Ireland) and the SEAT "S" on the front grill was painted black also. was a very subtle, tasteful looking mod.
How would you go about doing this to get a good...

Just painted my ggenuine audi TT wheels on my Ibiza black, and wanted to hear a few opinions weather they looked better siver or black. Heres the pics of them painted, not got round to painting the centre caps but im kinda liking it like that! Theres also pics in the same folder with silver...
just painted my inlet manifold,rocker cover and charge pipe in crackle effect black :D just need to finish fitting tomorrow then ill get an engine bay pic up.
But here are the pics of said parts,and if i do say so my self i think they look [B)]
Just bought a set of cupra rims. I was thinking about painting or powdercoating an anthracite colour as i think it would look good on a black leon.
Just wondering if anyone has had theirs done?
I can only find pics with the gloss black or silver.
I love the big red cupra brakes, but they look strange with the black wheels!
i want some nice white calipers, i think the whole black / white contrast will look fantastic !
obviously i don't want to do it myself, i want them properly done , baked etc
anyone got any thoughts, comments...
Got bored in the workshop the other day so i painted my engine plastic cover.
1) Remove cover screws with a 5mm allen key.
2) Used a scotch pad to key the surface of the cover, at the same time you could use panel wipe. Panel wipe will clean off any oils or dirt from the engine.
Hi thanks for the answers on the painted black front grille, have ordered it from my dealer, but just after i thought about the Door Mirrors too, would look so much better in black to match the rest of the car, i know the Cupra comes with painted black ones like the grille, but does anyone know...
Has anyone seen or thought about having the plastic parts of the Cupra/Cupra R painted to a nice gloss black so they give a nice deep shine?
i.e. the Slatted Grille and the honeycomb mesh at the bottom instead of it being just ordinary plastic..
Just a thought i had when looking at some...
