Looks great mate. The springs do the car a world of difference. What other plans are on the horizon? I take it youve had it mapped up?

Just call me Andy the Shrew!! :-D

Thanks. Yeah springs finish it off nicely.

It's not mapped nah, going straight for stage 2+ (just shy of 400bhp) bits it's mega bucks.
Need a High pressure fuel pump (with all the gaskets and gubbins) is best part of 1k
Uprated clutch and flywheel another 1k plus fitting
Few other pricey bits I want aswell but we'll get there :)

I finally found time to open my Forge box :)

Before I did tho I debadged the 'Cupra' off the boot lid and fitted my Forge DV hose :)

Then I dug my new brakes out :)

So Forge 6pots with 356mm floating bells and rotors :)
After having AP Racing 4 pots on the Ibiza I couldn't not have big brakes :)

Think wheel change might be on the cards too :)

Only down side is the calipers are black so I've had to order brand new S3 vented rear calipers and carriers in black from TRW in Germany.
I've managed to get them brand new along with Brembo discs, brake pads and ATF Racing blue fluid cheaper than I've seen second hand ones sell for :)
Just gotta wait 2-3weeks for delivery.

Got the brakes out last night and put the caliper over the disc.

File Attachment:


Then couldn't resist getting a wheel off to see if they cleared the spokes

File Attachment:


Good news they did

File Attachment:


Can't believe they cleared and by a fair bit.

Want to get them fitted but not sure weather to wait for the S3 rear and flush the system.

Cleaned the car yesterday and clayed the paint work. Took some picture with my DSLR but laptop won't load for some reason [:@]

Anyway I managed to bag a free jet wash that was apparently leaking water from everywhere lol.

So got it home and tried it out, was leaking from the hose connection at the base of the jetwash

Quick inspection found the o ring missing, so put a new yellow hose connector on and that solved that leak.

File Attachment:


Started using it and water was pissing out the handle of the lance?! Took that part to find it had was held together with filler and insulation tape :rolleyes::confused:

File Attachment:


So now need a new lance and hose. Want to get a snow foam kit aswell anyone got any recommendations?

After that lifted the bonnet on the car and decided to do something about the mouldy sound proofing.

Took it off

File Attachment:


Attack it with a stiff brush

File Attachment:


Had a can of this kicking around

File Attachment:


First coat

File Attachment:


Couple of coats and drying on the line

File Attachment:


Oops

File Attachment:


Dried and back on :)

File Attachment:


Catch can seems to be doing its job
