    Cheers mate

    So not a lot has happened lately , the car sits on 3 Wolfrace Voodoo's and a space saver atm , no headlights and no front seats - she is looking sorry for herself but it'll be worth it in the end ! [​IMG]


    Since the car is off the road i've been knocking about in this poop box:


    [​IMG]


    1.5 Flat D , a bit off roading here and there but unfortunately i killed it after a month [​IMG] so now got this piece of Japanese magnificence


    [​IMG]


    More updates soon hopefully !


    Cheers for looking

    No probs mate seen it at a few shows this year and it does look stunning,

    Just wondering what have you done about the seat airbag wiring?? Looking at putting some buckets in mine but the ones im looking at dont have airbags, and i dont want airbag warning lights on the dash. Would put RS4's in but 2k is a bit steep.

    :( I don't like the wheels, actually i think its the wheel colour. I prefer a more OEM+ approach.

    Never the less, strong work with the interior etc.

    I never wanted them to be white , i bought grey paint which turned out to be white ;)

    I quite like them , theyll stay white for UD then might get them re done in grey/silver or maybe even fully polished !

    Thanks lads ! Story of my life tbh my nevermind theres always next year and the car will be 100% ready then :)

    So as some of you may or may not know i never made it to UD Cut the long story short, my gearbox mount needed replacing but i never replaced it because im a moose. On the way to UD on sat morning i hit a catseye pretty hard which took the gearbox crossmember out on one side then i bottom'd out a few more times down the M1 and just outside of Leeds the whole thing shat itself and my gearbox dropped Theres always next year though i suppose !

    So , this is how it started at 5.30 am @ Exelby Services on the A19

    [​IMG]

    and then ...

    [​IMG]

    new vs old

    Good thing its finally replaced, bad thing is that it bottoms out constantly now



    See you soon ! x

    I havent done anything to this lately other than sorting out the rear spacers , as on mk4 golfs etc the rear axle isnt the same length if that makes sense? Apparently its to make the car more balanced or something anyway the difference is 7mm but i ran 18mm on both sides resulting in uneven poke, all sorted now with some 24mm spacers on on the passenger side , still 1mm out but its not really noticeable. Also i never used proper flush bolts with my bolt on spacers so i got some proper ones the other day :unsure:

    A few snaps from the last meet, might as well keep the thread alive :huh:
