    hey guy's



    swapped my mk4 golf anniversary for the new audi today,the lad turned up at about 11:30 dint leave till half two lol, both parties happy with the swap,


    so got set about giving it a good clean, the outside tbh is very clean, i was going to run the buffer over it but, at the moment and lack of sun it seems fine, i may give it a final going over though, so just paid interest to the interior, wet vac'd the seats and treated the rubbers, wheels tyres and dressed the engine bay


    here she is, little rear rake but that will get sorted next week

    well,


    as with any car i have there are bits i need to do to get it up to scratch
    its not been serviced for nearly 20k, now its on long life anyway so will be going back to normal as i do very low milage
    bits ordered:
    oil and filter, fuel filter, arb bushes for the front, it also has a few engine trims missing too, so replacing them, total comes to £90 ish+vat, so not cheap but will make a whole load of difference, just hop it stops the front knocking

    yeah mate,

    just spent the last three hours winding the suspension up, i now have a grazed leg and bilster in my palm from the c spanner, fronts were very easy but by god are the rears a pita!! everything has to be dropped down, then compress the spring to get the adjuster in and out,

    overall i have raised the suspension one inch on the adjusters, i have a full tank in the car too, there very deceptive these a4's as the back arch is lower than the front lol, but a tape measure shows 56cm all round, hopefully it will be enough as i aint doing the back again lol

    next little project was this:

    [​IMG]

    look at the state of them, cheap carwash acid app

    so a quick flat,

    [​IMG]

    then a couple coats of renault grey met trim paint job done

    done another little fettle,
    passanger headlamp had a scrape to it, quite a bad one actually,
    [​IMG]

    used 2000 grit to flat the majority out
    [​IMG]
    then polished it back up with 3m fastcut, theres a slight improvement, most of the graze has gone but the gouge is still there
    [​IMG]
    and this is the ride height im at at the moment

    decided to machine the full car, i wasnt going to but it was full of water spots and you could feel contamination on the surface, there were a few heavy scratches in the clear so i decided to hit the paint very hard

    process was:
    9" lambs wool on intermediate pad combined with 3m fastcut plus(greentop)
    6" yellow 3m sponge pad with 3m fine polish yellow top
    6" yellow 3m sponge pad with 3m finesse final stage polish
    then a quick wipe down, and a wash to remove all the debris from the lambs wool,
    ag hd wax
    the car has come out really well, im pretty sure the new sleak surface will give an additional 5mpg too

    im not sure what to do tbh,

    i like your plate location tbh but not sure it would suit y colour, there is the jap and us bumper like that for the a4 which means no cutting like you had to do, ummmm do you still have your multi fucntion steering wheel forsale?

    rest of the bits came in from tps today,
    washer jet covers, fog surrounds and plate holder, fitted them and then decided to clean the egr,
    my god, i have never seen so much caked on crud in my like some areas were a good 1/2" thick lol, about half hour later the were gleeming, so did the bits of the manifold i could see on the car and put it back together. then added some forte deisel treatment to the tank for the injectors.
    quite a productive dinner
