I took this week off to travel up to Awesome GTI to have some more work done. Excellent day, I met Sarah, who I've been dealing with for the last few months, in person, so that was nice. Very very nice team of people up at Awesome GTI. There really isn't anything close to me in terms of "proper" performance companies, I have to travel outside of Wales just to reach the first one, Badger5!
Added this time were 10mm spacers on the front to match the 16mm Spacers (both forge hubcentrics) on the rear. It does make it look a little strange at first but the stance now is IMO how it should be. Tie bars were moved from top to bottom (hope I've got that right Sarah? lol) as Pete wasn't happy with how the car was setup. Some previous work by another Garage had left some key jubilee clips off some of the boost related smaller pipework under the inlet manifold. Hot weather gave me the idea of having a total Air Conditioning work over and service, now blows really cold, hasn't done that in the two years I've owned it.
So again I'd like to say Thank you to Everyone at Awesome GTI and in particular Sarah and Pete for giving me their time and attention for a whole day Tuesday. A big thanks also goes to John, thanks for the coffee! Next time their on me!
Anyway....back to the thread, I'd intended another detail after I'd finished the last one as I wasn't that happy with a few areas on the car. I mean it looked great don't get me wrong but I wasn't happy and knew that I could get it better. Being my very first detail it went very well. Now a seasoned Detailer I though't I'd give it another go to put my skills to the test somewhat!
I've a few taster Images, took yesterday afternoon as I started late!
Before shots first (obviously). It'll take me until the weekend to finish the car, will post up more as each day starts!
The car before I started! Full of M4, M5 and M6 & M50 Motorway dirt.....yuek!
