  1. Evening all, Is there such a thing as an aftermarket outer seal that would have negate the need for me to spend £100 on a replacement? Thanks!
  2. Could anyone point me in the direction of anyone still manufacturing prefab brake pipes?!
  3. Thanks all, I'm thinking these ATE Calipers and either these Brembo front discs, or full front and rear disc set from Mintex. Seems a bit cheap for a full set of discs and pads though! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Complete-Caliper-ATE-for-VW-Corrado-1-8-G60-2-9-VR6-/191920813887?fits=Model%3ACorrado%7CCars+Type%3A1.8+G60&hash=item2caf5f373f:g:LMMAAOSwanRXhTOA http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BREMBO-SPORT-MAX-BRAKE-DISCS-FRONT-VENTED-286-VW-CORRADO-G60-GOLF-2-PASSAT-35I-/381578598723?fits=Model%3ACorrado%7CCars+Type%3A1.8+G60&hash=item58d7db5943:g:2e4AAOSwLpdW85bU http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Corrado-1-8-16v-G60-89-92-Front-Rear-Dimpled-Grooved-Brake-Discs-Mintex-Pads-/171114811182?fits=Model%3ACorrado%7CCars+Type%3A1.8+G60&hash=item27d73ccf2e:g:uhgAAOSw3v5YnGk8
  4. Cheers Ian. I think I'll get some braided hoses while I'm doing all this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Cheers Jim, I'll be honest I'm a complete noob. Had this Corrado going on five years now, it's been SORN'd this whole time and I'm getting around to getting it started after the bodywork was done many years ago. So am i looking for G60 discs and calipers front and back or just front?
  6. I'm buying all new discs and pads all round, and have decided to buy new calipers while I am doing this, likely going to paint them before fitting. Any recommendations from anyone on what I should buy? With a million other things on the list my budget isn't exactly massive, but as they will be stopping the car, I guess it's pretty important 💃🏽 Thanks!

    Photo Help!

    hi all, been a while since I posted, basically because my Corrado was getting some serious body repair done, to the tune of £3.5k. I need to some help basically. I've swapped out the 1.8 16v for a 2.0 16v with some saucy aftermarket bits. I've two hardback manuals, but the loom is a little hacked, and I'm not sure which plugs and connections go where. Ideally I'm going to get it running, then garage it over the winter - but it was in my dad's garage and he's just pulled it out as he needs the space, so it's sitting in the Northern Ireland elements right now. I was hoping somebody really helpful could take a load of photos of their 16v bay and perhaps drop box them to me. The more the merrier really. I'm not sure what I can offer in return, apart from many thanks and knowing you've helped get another Corrado back on the road... It's a 1989 1.8 16v. Hopefully someone can help, and thanks in advance. D
  8. Send us a PM sure mate and we'll talk dough. The wings would need to be straight feller, no filler or anything. Sure get a look at them and send us some pics! You north or south?
  9. Perfect. Where are you based? Might need a few other bits and pieces...
  10. Hi all, I'm looking for two front wings, and a front bumper. Only problem is I live in NI, but don't mind paying for postage as long as they arrive in good nic... D. x
  11. I'll maybe give the electric window thing a blatter too, see if I can't get it working. Although I could probably be doing with an alarm after the respray etc... Though I don't have too much money at the moment, haha.
  12. thanks guys. think i'm going to go for the one below. Out of interest did you guys have any joy with the electric window rollup??? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Remote-Keyless-Entry-for-car-central-lock-KE648W-ULT-/160947493172?pt=UK_Car_Accessories_Safety_Security&hash=item257937d934
  13. Hi all, Only 6 months after getting my first Corrado, so I'm a noob that doesn't know much. Yet. It's a 1989 1.8 16v. It's got central locking but not remote. Can anyone tell me if it came with central locking? I don't imagine it did. The next question is, has anyone used a good aftermarket remote central locking kit they would recommend? I don't have the cash for an alarm yet, but I'd like remote central locking and perhaps de-lock using the Passat rear handles and mechs... It's in the shop being stripped and resprayed so I'm thinking about doing as much as possible while it's stripped! thanks
  14. Anyone ever seen a Corrado in this colour? Mine is currently being stripped and I STILL haven't decided on a colour. Was going to paint my Mk2 Golf in 997 Classic Sport Grey, but now I'm thinking the Corrado... Decisions.
