    What paint did you use? Your thoughts on it; good, easy to use, worth the money, etc? Thinking of doing mine as the car is all black and could od with a subtle splash og colour

    Sorry, meant to say brake calipers. But I'll also check out the cover thread as I might do a wee bit colour inside the engine bay.

    well after a few weeks of having the kw 40mm kit on,it's bedded in nicely!only thing that had been bothering me was the gap in between the front wheel and arch,seemed a little too high still,took a good look round and made a few phone calls to kw,and turns out me and my old man had put the springs around the wrong way which is what i thought at the time but my dad werent having it!but anyways it's no biggy,just gotta take it all apart and swap them around!cheers dad so that's a job for the weekend!
    also i have been having some temperature issues,as in the temp gauge was showing 65-70 while running then if sitting still would get really hot,so i've got a new temp sender and thermostat and 2 bottles of g12 coolant.got both the stat and sender as i thought might aswell renew the lot and make sure rather than running backwards n forwards for parts.so gonna flush the coolant system and renew the coolant at the same time.so i've got some bits to keep me busy this weekend
