  1. Yeah there are some comedians out there that wouldn’t think twice about wasting your time - really are some chancers out there .
  2. Ideal skill if you are into classic cars !
  3. Its looks horrid stuff for sure. The welder at the body shop will do it- thanks for the offer though - I didn't know you could weld. I take it the cables need adjustment as well.
  4. Dreadnought classics UK about £50 for late set and they also do early. Stay away from the Heritage stuff its nothing like stock - its a joke they sell it to be honest they should be embarrassed. . If you look at my G60 Sassy thread fitted some of dreadnought stuff the other week with photos. Heritage have got out of hand- they charge £8 for post for a few bolts and also double the cost for bolt then if you got direct from vag- only use them if you have to as they are a very [poor value company looking to rinse your pockets twice. . https://dreadnoughtcustoms.co.uk/products/vw-corrado-bonnet-lining-2
  5. Ready for the body shop - no wonder the handbrake was high - very common ripped weld . Hole where white fuel line bracket houses onto the welded thread in floor pan which I was aware of . Perfect opportunity to give the interior a platinum wet vac .
  6. Guys do they look like original factory mats - think I will give the a wet vac and see how they will come up. Will be taking out the interior tomorrow ready for the body shop - will be lifting the carpets for inspection. . Boot sticker confirms XT recaro .
  7. I put a bit of silicon spray in the hole- to get the first bit in twist and push the bush in at an angle so half of it goes through, then large flat head that is not sharp or put some tape on the end of the flat head to stop any scratch and lever it through .
  8. Did them last night mate- too spongy with a press- put it in at a slight angle the bush to get the first bit through the hole and then a large flathead screwdriver head to push/lever the other side through . Helps if you put the cross member on a vice wrapped in blanket to protect powder coat sp you have good access. .
  9. Pretty sure what we call the Bosch motorsport coilpack is the same as this Saab/GM one on thread - pigtails off audi
  10. I might do this next- as you say win win !! They might even be more tolerant to heat soak and therefore be more reliable then oe. Next time I see Vince I will ask him if there any negatives.
  11. My mate is going to message you on ebay - he met you at the Dikes Robin from Stealth .
  12. They are good in this car the long term owner must of been an office worker midget as the interior is spotless . Got the parts back today £180 all in - great company that are well known for motorbike frames coating in Brum . As expected the front iron will need a small piece put on but glad the powder coater sent me a photo as I could see how well they blast them . Also fitted the Audi hinge seals which carry the same part number as the Rado - heritage sell some garbage copy ones when really they should stock these for the Rado and Mk2 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304051557909 Finally ran out of the 3m product - time to renew . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402744380118
  13. Thanks Tone but this car is having no where as much spent on the last one . Wheels back . £220 refurbished with wet paint factory silver (not powder coat ) x2 new Toyo tyres £80 as rears where newish Toyo all ready so matched . BBS decals 70 mm £35 a set .of 4- went for gold but silver and red available- think they are fake but exceptional copies and quality spot on . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154155562877 First parts received off LLL which useless Heritage and dealers said they could not get - genuine rad fan sensor and also ready available vag clamps which where about £1 each and there are about 12 in a G60 bay so for £12 a nice bit of shine for the bay . The rad sensor is the 3 connector unlike the mk2 which is 2 and G60 has an A on the end of part number Parts arrived from LLL within a week with postage at £4.95 even though I know for a fact they have got these parts from Germany classics Im guessing - this is my go to now if the part number shows in the search on website. Saves dealing woth 6 weeks wait with Heritage and also part VW staff who don't know how to source the parts/ slow on etka and charge 25 units in a bolt bag when you only need one. Great delivered to my door and dont have to speak to VW staff win win ! . https://www.lllparts.co.uk/
  14. I will pm you when I get home with the link mate /. It’s a funny one as it is shown on etka as complete bumper and not individual number for iron but I have purchased one before and another last week - it’s what I call a hidden part .
  15. Yes that is true snd knowing the trouble hotspots , spare parts at hand and contacts means it can be put on the road sharpish.
