    So I went out for a shoot with Nick, with his track A3 to do a feature for a website I run called Deutsch Erbaut, featuring all the best VAG cars

    So things have been really quiet on the modifying front

    fitted my mates tuning company sticker today



    and finally got round to removing the mess of a number plate, and fitting a square plate (looking much tidier)



    However tomorrow night its going off to my mates garage (cnctuning) to get the full LCR front end setup done, to give much better handling, excited much

    So it's been a while since any updates have happened.....weather hasn't helped really

    This arrived.....going to be a lot of hate for this. Rear spoiler, not pretty but it's functional



    Few stickers arrived




    Coil pack wiring cover fitted also (yes I know I am missing a few bolts for the bolt down coil packs lol)



    new VT.net sticker



    Fitted




    Few things arriving this week. Magmashield has just arrived, so I can finish off wrapping the intake pipe. Hopefully I can fill the old spoiler holes this weekend in preparation for the big gay wing to be fitted

    Also the second bucket seat arrived, so I am going to be drilling out the old passenger seat rails, which is a pig to do, so Nick can fit the passenger seat at some point.

    Bonus time soon at work, so fingers crossed it's enough for a roll cage

    Also a new climate control fasica arrived, as my old one the liquid in the LCD is leaking across the screen to the point I can't see any of the controls or heater on etc

    So finally with the dry and sunny weather today, I got a few bits done

    Finished off the magmashield on the intake



    This was the climate control, totally fecked



    Replaced



    I am aware of the sh*te wrapping done some years ago, this is getting hyrdo dipped in matt black

    BGW (big gay wing) trial fitting



    This was fitted, but only the mounts, as bolts weren't long enough to finish it off, so ordered some more today.

    i was looking a heat reflective tape for my CAI, what's the magma shield like for wrapping easy enough to do?
    definite improvement for heat soak in the engine bay?

    so the project is still alive....just

    updates

    Finally removed all the crap nankangs (from the previous owner) and fitted with Federal RSR's....awesome wheel and handling is just awesome.

    The gave her a clean as there was moss growing on her:





    One issue I have is with my feet sliding about on the floor due to there being no carpet, so ordered some rather loud grip tape:




    Then it was time to get my other seat fitted. Sadly we ran out of time, but 95% of the welding is all done, just got to drill the seat rails and fit, job done.

    Mine with my mates mental stripped and caged Audi A3. Went out for a spin in it the first time, OMG, scary stuff!












    Ordered some cable conduits to tidy up all the wiring, so it's not on show, then will be spraying up the floor and fitting the grip tape. It's first track day is next month so trying to get lots of little bits done for her in time

    Went to AMD Essex a few months back for the Comrades of VAG rolling road day






    it made 291bhp at R-Tech, so with the dyno lottery, running 285bhp it's still bang on the money

    Graph as well. Nice and smooth and good span of power over the rev range

    I went to Bromley car show down in Kent. Epic day, stunning array of cars, but I was really unhappy with mine. It looked scruffy, out of place (which isn't a bad thing), but the "look" of the car has never sat right, so it was time for a cosmetic change









    So it was time for a change......

    and change it has been undergoing

    Goodbye stickers



    big gay wing removed, and LCR spoiler refitted







    before and after, one side done. I haven't sprayed the other side yet as it still needs to be finished off welding, so I cant spray it until this has been done

    Sprayed the wheel well, as it was half white, which looked scruffy

    what it used to look like















    Next up to drill the other seat mounts in the passenger side, trial fit the new passenger seat, spray the passenger side floor.

    the old bumpers are going and I am fitting a set of front and rear facelift bumpers, LCR mirrors to tidy her up with a much cleaner look

    trial fit





    Car is now SORN though as the MOT expired.

    next things up are replacing all the subframe bolts which I am getting today from Seat as there is a clunking sound from the front nearside, which I think are the bolts which have stretched (refitted old ones a few times which you shouldn't do)

    new arch lines for front and rear bumpers as the bumpers extend down lower than the pre facelift ones. New rear bumper valance, again to fit the new wider bumper rear bumper

    then onto a new Sytec fuel pump, new fuel filter, oil change and replace the ABS module as I am certain this is causing ABS issues now
