Cant wait Jim lol
You say that now, but wait until you start the job
Adam don't try and undo the pinchbolts.
just take off the 2 inner top arms at the shock end as it's 10x easier.
Yeh, already weighed that 1 up Rick, 1of me pinch bolts has already been snapped by the previous owner, another job on the list, lucky the arms are ok !!
Well today was the day I "eventually" got me springs, and B5 perches on, I'm well impressed. The ride is a lot stiffer aswel.
Looking good. Wish I had the knowhow to do these mods
And a day spare lol, actually they were that bad did do a lot of faffing Hhaha
Just need some spacers now, as found out me wheels are ET35
Looks much better mate.
Nice 1 Jim, sorry didn't ya today, as u can imagine was pretty busy
Nice and low
Car is looking real good Adam. Some tidy work and good use of your time. So whats next on the mods Adam? x
Next on the list, Blacksmoke remap (when i get to see Jim) and some wheel spacers
Is it the MPPS you're after? If so, where abouts are you? I have MPPS.
Bit far from you i think, im in wigan due.
Sorry might of come across wrong, its more me getting to see Jim than him gettin to see me lol
Looking even more Bad Ass.............great job done ruff
Lol, York is a a little journey away. I'm off to Acton Bridge from next Saturday til Wednesday, I'll be taking my laptop in case I need to put my old map back on. Will be there for a few days If you had time to pop over?
Cheers Dan. If i dont get over to Jim. I will give ya a shout. Nice1.
Well i have had an annoying noise from the osf. A few people mentioned engine mount, lucky I changed it;
Good call!! How many miles on the old girl?
Just clocked 175k bud, defo goin do the other side now.
I must check my engine mounts !!!
And what springs did you go for mate??
The called Pro springs. Not expensive but not a cheap make, they were recommended to me from a friend.
Yeh defo goin be changin me other 1 after seeing that, took bout an hour. But was pretty easy
No worries mate, as you can imagine I wanted to get home and fit my headlining trim anyway haha. Also I was pretty shattered from the journey so it probably wouldn't have been the best time to do it mate.
I'm on 6-2's all week so I'm free every evening except tomorrow if you want to pop over.
Nice 1 Jim, Is tomorrow any good for ya, tell ya what will ring you later,
A better pic or 2 lol
Loving the height!
Do you have different springs front to back then?
No they are the same all round with B5 perches on the front
Whats the drop front and rear? Obviously ~15mm with the perches, but how about the springs?
The springs are a -35mm from the standard car, not from the sport model, then plus the -15mm from the perches
Give the front badge it's first coat of green. Bout tine i added some colour lol
Been a busy weekend, eventually got me water leaked sorted.
So onto a few little mods, fitted me ambient front light;
Unfortunately didn't get time or have the hose to fit me catch can;
Finally got me colour coded fog grills in, no more dull grey plastic, get in!! Lol
Looking good I'm waiting for my s line bumper to come from the paint shop
Next; seat splitter. That should finish it right of
You going to a Seat dealer or eBay?
Defo ebay dude, £35 i think the are
Well it took a few hours to get in but it's on, and looking fantastic, what a difference.
Looks good pal... Planning on getting one for my new bumper
Mine will look better when it has been sprayed. But quite liking it as it as the moment lol
Wow what a difference that splitter has made
