    Would of thought you would have had 225's on the rears thats what i had on my 10's wen i had them on my a3.

    Also what most of the boya over on edition 38 run.
    The camber shims will help alot though

    Awesome, love the bonnet, kinda reminds me of a Astra I had awhile ago, I did it in chalkboard black, lights black, wheels black, lots of smoothing, hidden exhaust etc.

    umm u can buy actuall lowering top mounts sumwere on the internet,,technique im using is

    you buy polo 6n2 top mounts and also the strut stop tht u see in the engine bac above teh turret (metal plate last part os suspension)

    its perfectly safe, bearings are same ect, rubber is tough as nails,,,so u gain about 20-15 mm lowering ,,,, their 15 quid each much cheaper thn the 90 quid they ask fr the actuall lowering ones

    another lil pre all types update,,,big job broke out sum more haha

    currently....at the rhys davies brain...

    gone another inch lower in the back due to the flared bumper

    bumper is now flared out flush with the arch,,,,arch is also flared from a higher point now like s3 arches, bumpers fibreglassed and secured via aliminium brackets now and smoothed in with filler


    my boot install modified again,,, tools now kept in side compartment,, floor raised for bmw biscut wheel acompanied by 10inch sub a pioneer gold plated conection amp and 12 cd disc changer,, the base is much better quality now spread through out the car loving it atm


    this is how it stands at the moment

    so this weekends list is....
    helper springs out of front
    roll front arches
    paint calipers
    fill, smooth and paint rear arches
    touch up paint
    polish then tint frnt lights
    paint nd smooth frnt and rear bumper
    deep wax on alloys ready for all types
    polish inlet manifold and exhaust tip
    rear camber shims to be fitted and then adjust height


    hope to see alot of you at all types should be an amazing weekend

    Cool mate. Thinking of doing mine aswell as its a state and needs done. What material did you use??? Where from? Much? Did you just glue it?

    Cheers.

    Great thread this, matey. Really enjoyed reading through it and seeing all your progress. Love the matte paint and the wheels especially, though it's all pretty sweet TBH! Shame you're selling now, but needs must. All the best!
