hahahahahahha sorry mate
im a fan of the first wheel pic... :thumbsup:
im also leaning towards that, not too dark and you can see it at night
Gun metal grey / Antracite is what i am also looking at...
The black just hides the wheels
thats what i hate and at night it looks like a hover craft no wheels
Went tonight to get my new set of rubbers for my 18s for a song very happy! So tomorrow its fit and do alignment
Those tyres look very familiar dude.... Lol....
Welcome to ASN dude!
I had to say something on ur thread! My blood, sweat and tears are also in that car...
Mainly tears and anger hahahhahahahahahah
And not forgetting monster energy drink!!!
Whoo hoo monster!
Had a awesome night last night picking up pieces of my block all the way up a road.
Don't really know what went wrong but I would assume I had rod failure. Pull away from the traffic light normal, put into 2nd then put my foot flat and BOOM game over. Gona start moving things around in my garage today and push the car in and start stripping. If the head is not damaged I'm going to get another block and do forged internals and agu pistons. If the head is damaged I'm screwed and will have to get a complete motor
Oh Miggles you poor poor *******
Hahahah I'm gona be poor after this! I need to sell a kidney! Anyone need one?
I don't think your foreign kidneys would survive the transit to the UK dude
If you're willing to donate a liver thought I could send an AGU engine your way, then I'd be able to drink more beer without worrying as I'd have a spare
So sorry dude, That must be a ****e feeling !
Lol I don't drink nick so my liver is fresh! Its worth your A3 then lol
Ja tiaan its a doos feeling
Gutted mate... Keep us up to date with how you get on with the rebuild... Plenty of pics please
Will do so bud
I shall b the designated photographer.... Lol
Wahahahahah!!! That can easily b fixed with a blow torch, a file and some copper compound... Hahahahaha
Lmao when I got the notification I already knew what picture was coming up! Nick your a laugh
Sorry Miggles. That one was too good not to share!
i'd happily give you my old agu bottom end, but its done 347 000 km, and it weighs more than i do so would cost the GDP of Luxembourg to ship over!
thanks for the help thou dude lol might have a bottom end waiting for a reply on price.
ok so got some work done yesterday satrted stripping and moving things to get the motor out. will go with Dwayne tonight to get a engine crane and engine stand.
got the car into the garage, what a mission it was with out reverse gear working lol
1st up was to remove the bonnet and wrap plastic around the fenders as to not scratch them
then started removing battery, covers, water hoses and plugs
thats the damage so far all i can see is that the rod snapped by the small end and the rod hit the block and jammed it self in to the sump. i see no makings on the sleeve which i hope is a good sign and that the head is not damaged
ok so my mate lee says he might have a complete AUM bottom end for me and a set of AGU pistons.
the plan for the rebuild goes like this:
* AUM block
* AGU pistons
* forged rods
* new bearings and seals
* redo all valve stem seals and guides
* flow the head
* new oil pump
and all the other little stuff that goes with the rebuild
Wow thats bad luck dude! Hope you get running again soon!
yeah dude such is life thou. thanks dude i give it 2 weeks about and it should be running
Holding thumbs for you dude! I know that when Kratos has his heart transplant, it's gonna be game on!
nice work so far and cracking stuff sorting parts so quick
thanks dude hope so
thanks man, motor is out tonight will hopefully be stripped complete tomorrow
if it makes you feel better i think you have the most awesome looking a3 going
Hahahahah that did make me feel better thanks mate!
At least it gives you an excuse to update your thread more often now dude
Good progress from what I'm seeing on facebook.
Thanks dude, appreciate it a lot.
Its just difficult as I'm no where near a computer to upload pictures so ill try tomorrow or ill find a way today
We gonna make the car better than before guys... Watch this space....
