    Howdy fellow Copenites! (Would you call yourselves that or is that just me?) :p

    I had no idea there were so many folks out there that love the Copen as much as I do or that even forums like this existed... and I've had my Copen for almost six bleedin' years! :eek:

    Anyway I'm here now and ready to bombard many poor unsuspecting forum members with my 613513436556 questions (because let's face it- there's always something to learn about a Copen)... providing y'all don't get sick of me too quickly :D

    Cheers,

    Rocketgirl :cool:

    Hi Rocketgirl, Welcome to Copenworld.
    The search function on the top right of the welcome page works well.
    Type in a word you trying to find out something on & the chances are there's a thread on it.
    Or just ask. Fire away.

    Oh my, thanks for the nice welcome you guys! :D

    To trustafox: Chris -or Chris Button- as my Copen is affectionately called (I can fill you in the reasons behind the name choice if you're interested ;)) is silver and currently in the works for mods (I just recently had the original rims refurbed in gloss black :p). Next on the list is a respray- unfortunately with living in a coastal town and lacking a garage, the salty sea air has made areas of my beloved car rather poor looking thanks to the rust :(

    But once it's all fixed and done up in it's new colours I reckon it'll look cracking ;)

    To DaG and Adam K: Thank you again for the welcome, also to Adam K the search function has indeed been quite enlightening, although my current dilemma doesn't appear to have any sort of thread :think: methinks I better start one in the proper forum section (or here if it's easier/better?) :)

    what colour are you having it painted or the same silver where required?

    How much did the wheel respray cost, I may at some point consider having them painted but for now they are in too good a condition and I want to spend on other things first

    Hi tunedtimer, and thanks ;)

    trustafox, my refurbs cost 200 quid which included balancing, alignment, and new valves. They even gave me nice new dust caps (which was lovely considering I originally had only one before the refurb :eek:)

    Just for the record I only had mine refurbed because the rims were in a right state and causing air leakage, which obviously isn't very good :rolleyes:

    The only thing is the place I went to doesn't do anything to the center caps so they're still silver- which kinda looks okay anyway? Which reminds me, I'm actually missing one of those center caps- anyone know where I can get one? Or even a set since knowing my luck I get just the one and yet ANOTHER will fly off never to be seen again :rolleyes:

    Oh and as for the paintwork... depends on what the insurance company thinks, although if I read things right my insurance company wouldn't care if I have it painted luminous green, as long as I don't drive around like a prat :p

    Being serious for a minute I'm hoping to have the whole car fully resprayed a high gloss black with contrasting custom graphics. It'll take a while to get this done but when it's finished I might even post some pics :)

    Me too :D

    Yep, always start a new thread when changing the subject. It's easier to find the topic again later.
