Project GTI - Mmmm carbon .......

Recommended Posts

Just a little boring update. With all the brackets out, it was a good time to replace some of the bolts.

Old vs New

All fitted

And a couple with the heat shield fitted. The top two screws went straight it, but i dropped the bottom screw and it promptly rolled along the undertray out of reach :rant::ouch:

Cheers guys. Got a few more bolts to change but my OCD still says the engine bay isn't up to scratch. :rolleyes: It's going to have to wait though as I desperately need to get the Mk6 wheel in and wire the boot release up.

Quickly fitted the gear knob yesterday ready for the trip over to Bristol for Bristol Volksfest today.

Gave the car a little clean ready to go. Here's a random shot of my next door neighbours Zafira...

Also bought myself a new DSLR so have been having a little play about with it. Similar shots as I've posted before but I'm loving the improved quality.

Cheers mate. Lots more to come. ;)

Just shy of £100. I may be getting rid depending on how the new one looks. I don't think it'll be with me for a few weeks but I'll give you a shout if i decide to sell the Mk6.

Received a few more bits this weekend from Dale aka Lupoboz. A nice shiney new heatshield which i am hoping to polish up next weekend.

A new terminal box as ours has never had a lid

and a new Up! gearknob as it's more in keeping with the black and white theme and our is a 5 speed.

However, once I fitted it, i'm not sure I like it as much as the Mk6 gti so not sure which to keep. Answers on a postcard please...

How much did the heat shield set you back if you don't mind me asking?
