    Only 24hrs later than the delivery stated [courier company fault]
    All it took was 6hrs of me being indoors, and 10 unaswered phone calls to the courier but brake lines have finally turned up!

    Been very quiet on the thread front. Not had anything new fitted yet, currently dealing with coolant leak issues.

    List this weekend;
    Plastic housings need replacing not too expensive. Will get part numbers as im sure they are a fairly common fault.
    Change front wishbone rear bushes
    Driver side track rod end (bush is completely shot)
    Tracking
    If there is time then clean up and respray my s3 rear calipers and carriers

    If its thee plastic coolant housing that bolts onto the side of the head ive got an oem one thatwas only on for 2 months you can have if it will fit?
    I know k03 and k04 ones are different as on the k04 one, the bulkhead take off is offset and think tge k03 one is straight?

    Productive weekend again
    Sorted out the coolant leaks replaced the two parts below


    water housing



    there were a few cracks developing



    since I was changing the coolant I thought it was a great time to replace the coolant bottle in place of the old yellow bottle. Looks much better (will grab a pic later)

    got round to changing the new front wishbone rear bushes and the track rod end. Car feels much better, handles well and steering doesn't vibrate anymore when doing over 70mph.

    i also found some time to prep my rear calipers and carriers I picked up from Ben.


    Never done shot blasting myself personally but decided to give is a go! I used glass instead of sand grains.


    Word of warning, don't try this wearing a short sleeve shirt, bits go everywhere! I'd advise a full body suit.


    in the end I thought the results were really good! All ready to get painted now

    It only took me 20mins. The kit I used was about £100 attach to a compressor and the bags of glass cost about £6 each. So glad I knew someone with the kit already
    initially I did pull out the wire brush and knew I was going to here a while

    Found a little spare time at work today and got to spray my calipers.
    Same paint from when I did my previous set "Ferrari yellow"


    had some Left over so resprayed my strut brace to match


    when I was prepping these up I noticed I have lost one of these...
    easy to get hold of?

    Looking good man, can't wait to see it at inters

    Agreed on the full body suit for blasting, I found out that hard way too!

    For your IC, do you have aircon working still?

    If not, remove the aircon rad, and you can trim the slam panel to tuck the bottom of the core in slightly, and the bumper will fit easily.

    Mine still fits with the slam panel untrimmed, but the bumper is shaved down to literally 2mm thick on the edges. I'll find pics for you later on.
