    hey all

    just documenting a project and hoping to pick up ideas etc along the way :)

    I bought a 52 plate a4 non runner, engine was beggared but I only spent £400 for the car, so I could see the potential.

    rebuilt the engine, common prob with brb engines (as you may know) oil pump goes and then engine batters itself to death.

    so, we've reconed the engine, new pumps, pipes, belts, pistons etc & it's running as sweet as a nut.

    replace the alloys, pads and disc's.

    done the rear lights today too.

    lots more to come so please feel free to chip in with advice & suggestions

    cheers

    so, new CD player put in, went for Audi A4 RNS-E style.

    bit of a disappointment though, sub doesn't seem to work after I changed it so guess an amp is now on the shopping list :(

    GPS didn't work but think I've figures that out, need igo8 maps putting on it.

    will keep posted but if anyone has ideas about the sub e.g. if i'm doing something wrong let me know.

    also, on a side note, wish i'd just spent more and got something official lol

    fitted the new intercooler today also,

    pretty easy getting only one out and new set up in but.... getting bumper back on is a right nightmare.

    had to loose the fog lights, grind back the slam bar to a within an inch of it's life but sure it'll look good once all kitted up properly :)

    exhaust coming tomorrow so should be updates to come, hoping to fit it on Friday

    another busy day lol :rolleyes:

    fit the bumper over the FMIT, p/s pipe not parallel with d/s so will be taking bumper off...again

    fingers crossed can sort it as it's making the whole thing look lopsided even though the cooler is level.

    exhaust fitted and sounding soooo nice :)

    actually it may have slipped lol, it certainly does look wonkey now but will see tomorrow.

    before...

    after...

    I wasn't fully happy with the pipes running flush with the car so they've been pulled out to 3cm each side so the "milltek" logo can be seen (will add pics of this once FMIC sorted):)

    wow, it's been a long time :)

    work on my own car had to stop due to work commitments.

    been doing up an old Talbot Camper van which has been massively fun. if you're interested or a just a little nosy have a look on facebook for dipped car ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dipped-car/469198099850590?ref=hl )

    however, since the last update, I've sprayed the red dust plates black. the more i looked at them, i just though "Tacky!" lol

    red grill at front is black now. again, thought it looked **** ;)

    but the biggy....Body Kits ordered!! should be here in about a week.

    will upload pics & when finished it's respray time.

    half promised the missus would keep it black but off for chameleon color flip :/

    she'll love it right....
