    S3 Calliper Painting + Forge 008 w/Pics

    Had a day off Wednesday so thought I'd get on and paint the callipers













    And also last night in the pouring rain i thought i'd fit the 008 too... The strut brace was right in way! Anway managed to get the clips off the old pipes - what a nightmare! But it's all on now and it's lovely.







    - this was the tightest and worse clip to get off.. I sustained injuries doing this little b. !!



    - strut brace being in the way I undid the other clips and disconnected the hoses to be able to pull it out into the open a bit more to gain better excess the the b clip!

    - it's on!


    - injuries sustained... lol

    as far as i'm aware, it's just more efficient and easier to change springs over, plus it's only like a tenner more for the newest revised version so went for that, Damian at dpm recommends these over the 007p and he's in the business so may as well listen!

    OUCH! I feel your pain with the hand dude :s

    Looks good mate

    There isn't much difference between the 007p and 008, apart from the 008 is a better design, looks better and is more efficient when it dumps boost and it's alot easier to change springs.

    Haha yeah :D I just lopped the old clips off with a great big pair of boll*ck chopper wire snips then used the jubilee clips that came with the DV :D My DV comes off every few weeks for a good clean and service so the jubilee clips are useful
