Recommended Posts

  • 4 weeks later...

so its been a while since i posted any real progress on this thread.

over the last two months i have managed to do quite a bit

i got my subframe, wish bones and arb blasted and coated with black satin powder coat


also while i was there i rebutted everything with power flex bushes. I'm working on making a new up graded dog leg

for the gti as there currently isn't anything on the market at the moment.


rebuilt hubs with new bearings abs sensors hubs and abs rings, also gave a spare set of callipers and carriers a lick

of red vht caliper paint. also rebuilt the drive shafts cv joints.



finished off with a set of ferodo racing ds 2500 pads to help her stop a bit better


not many people know that this mirror is a genuine vw part. i know its not carbon but its a rare lupo part so who cares


rebuilt my bbs rm's that i had lying round the unit. polished my radinox lips and finished them off with red and gold badges


finally got her back on four wheels today fingers crossed i should be enjoying the 20v power more on the road

now to get a gti rear beam and do a similar job to that.
