    So when I fitted the tweeters onto my A-pillars I had to remove the boost gauge, decided to fit it in the driver side airvent.



    Airvent carefully stripped



    Piece of 9mm traced and cut to size




    After some sanding and working with the coarse file I had this






    Vent taped up and then the insert received some filler after the hole was cut





    After about 4 applications of filler this is where I am at now, still lots of sanding ahead, hate doing such small intricate parts



    Received the final sanding




    Quick coat of paint added and then carbon trimmed to size



    First coat of the many of resin applied, will trim it to size tonight and then add 5-7 coats of resin more, then sand and clear



    And be careful with a new Stanley blade, cuts trough a finger tip like ****al


    Gave the pod a quick rubdown



    3 coats of resin

    So....... Unexpectedly I got sent a link from Gizmo on Friday for a list of S3 8L parts and I did not even think about buying the following, but for the price I could not say no, So here I have some coilovers....









    Thanks to my buddy paul that came throught yesterday in the ****ing cold to come fit the coilovers and get it dialed in.


    This is what is sits is now with the dampening on half and still need to settle, the ride is out of this world and worth every penny, but will probably raise it soon.



    And fitted my gauge

    Received an awesome little gift from my cousin yesterday that he did on their Mastercam and wire cutter.




    So while Im waiting for the adapters Im keeping myself busy with other mods :lol:
    Decided the calipers can do with a lick of paint.


    Before



    After





    Product used



    Then Saturday night after a spirited drive my car decided it wanted to be a scooby and blew a coilpack.


    So collected these this morning from the awesome people at Delarey.
    4 x R8 coilpacks
    4 x OEM coil pack spacers
    4 x BCPR7ES plugs





    Fitted the coilpacks, no more scooby wannabe.
    Excuse the dirty engine bay, everything is going for powdercoating next month so not to phased to clean it.




    Old plugs have seen better days

    Received my adapters back last week but had some issues with them, luckily my cousin is into engineering to he sorted them out for me quick quick.

    So here you guys go, And I know it needs to go lower, first need to sort out my fenders.


    I had custom centre cap gel stickers made by my buddy robin

    New ones




    Thanks to adrian who sorted the adapters out for me and correcting Maugene's ****ups and shortening the wheel bolts for me.



    Some better pics, will take some more over the weekend with a proper camera.

    So the car has been standing on trecels for the past few days as the adapters were still wrong. Ive had this weird rattling sound lately and could not pinpoint what it was, removed the adapters and bolted on one of my old wheels and the rattle was gone, Upon closer inspection I saw that the inner chamfer on the adapters were wrong (too small) and it did not seat properly on the hub by a hair thickness. So off came all the adapters and were sent off to my cousin to correct them.


    Original chamfer



    New chamfer




    They now sit flush with the hubs and rattles are all gone :hurray:


    Sent off some engine parts for powdercoating, will only get that back tomorrow, so while the car is non mobile I did some routine maintenance.


    Replaced the busted CV boot, the the other inner is also throwing out grease so will change that one satutday.



    Bled my brakes



    And then the all wonderfull fuel filter which I think has never been replaced, Being a 12 year old car and having full agents FSH, I was shocked.
