ok, I can see It's time for some good news!
sorry about your tyre Ed..and firstcaralfa hope the re-build goes well and doesn't require terminal open wallet surgery.
as promised fun stuff.
hated the look of the stock calipers through the newly furbed wheels so decided to paint them. Decals and caliper paint courtesy of Ebay and yesterday was nice so, I did the rears too but no decals, no point...also fitted 3mm spacers all round and the short shift kit, this morning was a good clean wax and polish.
pics don't do the calipers justice they look fantastic actually and really lift the car. the M-tech kit is AMAZING! don't know how I ever lived without it.
fitted a new cupra splitter as the last one is still clattering down the M4 somewhere ,this time I used screws with captive washers and little nuts, it's on solid but i have used a size that will ''let go'' if really hit rather than take the bumper with it...
so ejecto splitter MK2
p.s RXE I rescued the end weight from the gearbox and will be sending it over in the next few as arranged..
PPS I also fitted LED lights ,2 x H7 main and dipped ,the H^w side light and today the H1 fogs, look s much better IMO, after some driving last night must admit the throw is shorter but they are brighter...so as ith everything pluses and minuses, no errors have come up so all good and they will draw less power so a win ,win,compromise!
and we got finally got the fiat coupe engine in my mates car as well..engine mounts done up,inlet and exhaust mani on and drive shafts connected up,sensors connected and radiator and airbox ent on late -ish yesterday. i was helping him out between coats of paint! with any luck key on early week and the engine we dropped in only has 30k on it ...happy days!
