    Cheers Ras, yes moved home and just about settled now. Unfortunately there is no garage here, or off street parking so the car is still back in Glasgow in a better location meaning less time to work on it now! Boo!

    Cracking project pal, looks a totally different car than when you started!

    The bit thats caught my eye that I want to ask you about is the front badge you sprayed with halfords paint!

    Ive got a B6 S4 with a blackout model front grill with a black badge I sprayed myself which has a few stone chips after 2 years or so and fancy a change, so....my questions :)

    Did you put a laquer over the aluminium paint?

    How has it lasted over time?

    How many layers of primer etc?

    Anything else you think i may need to know?

    Help & advice would be much appreciated as the matt look would tie in nicely with my mirrors and window surrounds and ive never seen it done before on a B6.

    Cheers

    Wow, 6 months since i last done this!!!

    Anyway, time for a quick update. Good news is i have the funds again to be working on the car and collecting bits etc, bad news is im working abroad for the time being, so dont have time to do anything with the car.

    So far.....

    -New brakes being collected, of Porsche variety soon. Rear upgrade to suit.
    -Another new set of wheels have been added to the collection
    -Recaros are ready to be fitted
    -Supercharger ready to be fitted once cleaned etc, decided on a mapper to use
    -Interior headliner and extras will be changed to the dark type(Cheers Kev)
    -RS4 bumper will be sorted or another sourced and fitted
    -New header tank and silicone pipe to clean up under bonnet
    And other bits n pieces here and there.

    Due to the fact i only get around 20days leave every 3 months to be home, i dont get a chance to do anything really, but i might try sneak away the next time im back to make a move on some things, need to push it on now. Will add pics of things whenever that happens! :search:

    Im not sure Scott, didnt speak to him. Its needing a bit of time spent on it cos its the Supercharger so not a straight forward map and the list of people i asked that turned it down due to it being a real job on the B5, left me with only a couple of choices so ive got somebody in mind now anyway.

    Na, never done the brakes yet, you shamed me into doing it cos my new wheels would show them being too weedy! Bully and peer pressure, thats what i told the mrs!!! :moa:

    I'd happly take the blame for it if you had some semi big brakes that I could take in payment of the blaming.
    But since you don't, if she asks me any thing about it, I will deny all knowledge.
