  1. Thought I'd give you guys an update. Not been on here for a while. Old Head unit New bad boy DVD player Had a little problem last week. Came out the gym, less than a mile down the road & hit bump while entering a mini round about. That followed loud tyre screeching due to the arch on the tyre. At the time I thought the suspension at the front on the passenger side had adjusted it's self right down. Had to get the RAC out with a lorry to take me home. It only took me 3 hours to travel 6 miles home. The lucky thing about it all, I was 500yrds from the due carriageway which I'd of been doing over a ton down usually. If It had happened then, I might not be here writing this today!! After inspection, I have found it to be 2 of the 3 bolts that hold the bottom ball joint in were missing. I have them replaced a few months back. The guy who did it for me will be getting a visit from me. Glad it was sorted quickly and didn't cost much. Even glader it didn't happen at speed. Now with new Smoked Crystal Rear Lights With Happich Pop-Outs STD rear windows It's getting there!! More things to come!!! BTW, anyone seen my old G60 Raddo in the Swindon area?
  2. I'd never had brand new wheels before, so I had to have them. I want it in a position to get on some stands & shows, and maybe even win a show & shine, so it has to be done to ahigh standard.
  3. Thanks for the comments lads! Not yet, I am still waiting for my snap off boss from Eurotek. There's been a problem with the manufacture apparently. Been on order for bloody ages. I paid 1k inc 205/40/17 Toyo's from Eurotek.
  4. Not been on here for a while, so about time I updated the progress with the Golf!! Been busy!! Since the last tme I was on here some ho mo has reversed into it and driven off, leaving me to come back to a bumper hanging off, dented wing, smashed grill etc. Just glad it happened before the respray! Whole new interior/steering wheel! More goodies Nice & wide! 8.5" Toyo's Old & New A little close Before the 10mm Spacers Really chuffed with the wheels now. Wasn't sure I'd like them. Next is the intercooler to change. Current Intercooler. Sprinter to go on soon. Awating a date for it to go into the body shop now!
  5. Problem sorted. It was just the yellow wire needed earthing. Thanks for your help Flushed. Dan
  6. going to earth the yellow on its own and see what happens. I don't want to start chopping in to other wires and creating more problems.
  7. I dont seem to have a blue black wire? But 2 blues & a blue/white?

  9. Do you happen to know the colour of the wire that will need earthing?
  10. Just replaced my 8V clocks with some 16v clocks. Problem is, as soon as I pull away, my oil warning light comes on & starts to scream!! Stays on till the ignition is turned off. The car is a 20vt, so I'm guessing the oil warning light wouldn't have been connected with old clocks!! ? Why does it keep coming on?? I'm sure I've seen 160mph clocks in over 20vt's before though?? I don't care if the oil buzzer isn't conected? I'll buy an seperate gauge! I just want it to turn off. It's not the level oil, it's sitting just under the max HELP!!!! Thought I'd put it up here too, one of you guys might know something? Cheers Dan
  11. It couldn't have been me! It was sat in my garage for 6 months! LOL! It was a shame it wasn't the other side, the drivers side door had the only dent in the car (parking dent) Still maybe phil can get the bumper and the bonnet painted at the same time, and it'll be mint then. Golfs coming along quiet nicely. It'll be resprayed before the end of March. Goodies turning up all the time. New wheels will be here this week. Very excited!!
  12. Sold my G60 no less than 2 weeks ago, and someone has crashed into it. The new owner, Phil (comes on here, not sure of his user name) emailed me today. Someones pulled in to the passenger side of it, hit it from the front bumper to the rear :( It was the other guys fault, a muppet by the sounds of things. Guess Phil won't be making it down to the next no rice!! Good luck getting it sorted if you still come on here! Dan
