Have you still got the orange indicator inserts?
Yup i do mate
Will be getting this at the end of the month , thought id treat myself since it's Christmas
Boot lid will look sweet
Reckon they would fit the indicator inserts on a3 lights?
What A3 is it ? My mate has a 53 plate one, i guess thats an 8P ? It wont fit one of them but im pretty sure theyll fit the newer shape ones
It's an 8p so they won't fit
i love this.
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 !
Since the car is off the road i've been knocking about in this poop box:
1.5 Flat D , a bit off roading here and there but unfortunately i killed it after a month so now got this piece of Japanese magnificence
More updates soon hopefully !
Cheers for looking
Been messing around after work today , trial fitted the front seats ! I think they look pretty sweet tbh and the car should go faster as the Audi seats weight a flippin tonne !
Here's a few pics i took along the way , poo quality but you get the idea
Excuse the state of the car haha
Car looks stunning mate, like the front seats too what are they out of?? (look like RX8 seats)
Cheers mate ,glad you like it Always nice to hear/read a positive comment !
They are indeed RX8 seats
looking good mate.
Its nice to see someone doing something different.
the dog seems to enjoy the extra space. Lol
the seats a direct fitment?
Shes always everywhere !
No chance mate, im gonna cut the runners off the std seats and weld them to the rx8 seats
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 havent done anything yet tbh , im sure theres a way of tricking the system with some resistors or something you can always get rid of the air bag light via vag com
Some more progress from today
Cheers for looking !
cars looking stunning mate i need a fbsw there awesome
Looks good Chin - your old wheel the one on Cus' A3?
Cheers mate , yeah they feel great and change the look of the interior !
Yeah man sold it for a few quid , im gonna need your help soon anyway !
Started putting the car back together the other day so here's a pic
nice work dude!
i passed this on the A19 north bound around monkey hanging land (hartlepool) a few month ago!
looks sweet, sits very well!
good work man!
That would be about right, my missus lives just outside Hartlepuddle
Lookin good as usual, what was it apart for???
New steering wheel
re done headlining and a b c pillars
US spec plate recess
US spec boot lid
still got the wheels to do !
anyhow , i had a spare 5 minutes the other day so got it mot'd , tax'd and put my private plate on !
So wheres the pics???
Or is there more goin on?
Your number plate puts a smile on my face lol....I love it!
Just realised you didn't do your rear seats. Please don't leave it like that for too long!!
Cheers mate , money well spent then ! I will get the rear bench re trimmed all in good time

are those wheels staying?
yeah they are for now mate, got a week off work so theyre coming off to be re done , theyre a bit rough atm just wanted to see if i like the colour
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 !
You bought silver paint and it turned out white! ****! name and shame?
love it all the same mate.
On the color chart it looked grey so i bought it , luna grey on monstercolours
Where did you get your gear knob?
ebay my friend
or mate, im honestly wounded for you you deserved this weekend
Saw on fb that you couldnt make UD.
Gutted for you.
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
and then ...
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
A few snaps from the last meet, might as well keep the thread alive
Thanks to everyone who took them :clap:
