    Got the bushes removed from the subframes just need to remove the clips for the brake lines off the rear subframe but need to take a pic so i now which ones go where and what orientation there in. Also got the crash bar removed from the bumper started to trim the number plate area up but need more cutting discs lol and trimmed some bits that were visible through the side grills.

    Bushes cam out fairly easy once the top lipped part of the bushes were removed just a quick hit with a hammer and they were out.

    And the bumper removed from crash bar and tidied up the number plate area and centre grill bar ends ready to fill them in.

    Got the crash bar modded this morning. Thinking of adding some reinforcement to the centre bar as its a little flexible.

    Found my rear turrets to be a bit corroded on the rear face its not structural as its only 1mm thick and only spot welded to the turret itself.

    image.jpeg

    Set about removing the pieces with a air chisel which quickly removed them leaving just the spot welds and bottom weld, so i then ground down the spot welds and cleaned up the bottom weld ready for some 2mm thick sheet metal after they have been shotblasted then going to look at getting them galvanised as aragorn suggested weld them up and then powdercoated.

    Heres how they turned out

    Also got the rear top arm outer bush replaced and one inner on the other side got to get one of the bushes out the rear upright as that needs replacing from when i fitted it and had the socket the wrong way round so it pressed the metal in to the socket was fine but needs doing (OCD) lol

    Happy new year guys

    Progress is still real slow but now xmas etc is out the way i need to crack on and ive decided on keeping the S4 B6 brakes and boleros as i didnt really want to ditch them for aftermarket wheels, the boleros are off to get shot blasted next week along with subframes and rear turrets all for £30 off a mates work colleague. Then im going to go for oem looking boleros and get the diamond lip recut but maybe a tad darker on the spokes, i hate diamond cut rims due to the fact they tend to corroded very easily so im going to try see how they go.

    I was originally going to just refurb them myself as i started to strip them back with nitromors but i got them back to pretty much original and they have grown on me and you dont see many off our cars sporting oem looking boleros these days.

    Few pics
    IMG_1785.JPG
    IMG_1800.JPG

    Maybe a tad lighter than these
    IMG_1790.JPG

    Or should i go with oem silver ?? Opinions ??

    Personally don't like dark wheels on black car. Shiny silver / fully polished ftw

    A darker silver should be good. I borrowed a set of full silver ones a few years ago and I quite liked how the car looked with them on.

    I could not be bothered with the diamond cut lips around here though as they will go milky pretty quickly without loads of looking after.

    Do NOT go down the polished/diamond cut route.Its a complete waste of time, the companies that do it know that and wont even warranty their work.

    Personally i dislike silver wheels, and favour darker shades. Never black though. The wheels on the BMW were done in Bronze which looks great against the black. For some reason i have NO photos of it on those wheels though :(

    I found on over 300hp it slipped quite easily. TTV and rs4 kit would be my choice, well was after spending £200+ on the v8/SMFW

    Got one in mine, great service and so far seems to work well.

    Only downside is a heavy pedal which my other half hates which is a sod as it may mean we take the TT to the Nurburgring later this year.
