  1. Since I was last posting on this subject, I've acquired and fitted yet another Momo - this time my holy grail, mid-70s Prototipo 320. So I'm not sure which one you're now referring to?: 1) Original Gti retrimmed and with flat bottom 2) Plastic Lupo wheel (used during Gti wheel retrim) 3) Momo 320mm Jet Regards. David

  2. It’s blasted with Garnet which is actually my surname. i would been there for hours rubbing away or with a drill. They guy who did it was going to leave the good parts but he said the paint was so thin it came straight off so he just did the whole lot. It now has a primer coat and two coats of POR which I tested is rock hard.

  4. Nah... one of my SDIs has been parked up since march. I've probably done only about 200 miles since then in one of them. Had to go out for it's MOT in August, but other than that I only take it round the block once every couple of weeks just to keep the brakes clean and keep the cobwebs away. I get trade price on my MOT from Halfords in Tilehurst for just £24 as I help them out occasionally on clients' electrical problems, so my main cost is insurance at about £20 a month. Plus tax at £30 a year. Running costs are almost negligible now, as spare parts prices are on clearance everywhere, a

  5. Blasting definitely the way to go, gets into all the nooks and crannies.

  6. Yeah this thing: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133476884071 There is another more expensive type with more functions from germany. But you're not allowed to even touch your mobile phone now while driving (what about sat nav apps???).

  7. Why would you solder to the board when you can buy a AUX in adaptor that plugs in the back of the radio off the shelf?

  8. I've been challenged to put Audi TT seats in my son's ibiza cupra. That opened a right can of worms. Get your tape measure out. You may find that the runners are too wide. I've found at least 3 different widths across the Vag platforms. The narrowest is the mk1 Audi TT which seems to be unique at around 410mm. The common dimension is 478mm. Also the distance from the front of the runner to the seat back changes. My Octavia is 50mm further back than my son's ibiza cupra. I have A6 seats in my T5 van. I had to make adapter plates to do it.

  10. Same here... I picked up a spare front and rear recently from @Little tank , so I can rotate the frames between cars, then do one at a time. I need to completely strip it then take it down the local sand blasters. Ideally I'd dip galvanise them, but doing the inside channels is difficult.

  13. Found the pics of one of mine, in the 'before' fixed state. I never took any pics of 'after'... Considering that the steel is about 2mm thick, it makes me think that the inside of the subframes aren't coated with anything in production. They must start rusting the day they leave the production line.

  14. Don't use LED interior lamps. The CCU has a dimmer function that relies on the filament bulb drawing current. When you fit an LED, it kinda flickers... not good. Standard bulbs are still the best (old tech!).
