Little update as I haven't in ages.

Due to my tops mounts letting go AGAIN I decided to get some Compbrake solids! Fitted these Friday and very impressed with how she handles now although still need a few tweaks to make perfic. Only thing that sucks is hitting pot holes, make me cringe every time slaphead

I added some 3mm rubber so its not metal to metal and to stop as much vibration as possible, seems to have done the job...



Also did this trying to get old top mounts off which some of you may have seen in other section...



I also found a couple more pics when I bought her in 2005 Laughing

Did they send you the wrong 1s when they didn't fit? And where did you get the rubber from? I need some for mine.

Yep, they sent me wrong ones twice! These ones fit very well so was pretty happy although they don't fit my GTI shell quite as well....

I got the rubber off eGay:

I think the GTI shell has a couple of threaded studs that catch, will try again another day....

Just bought one of these:




NOS will be installed just after Worthersee Twisted Evil

Testing new rimmage on tomorrow too ready for Ultimate Dubs - Thanks Lee for squeezing the tyres on....

rod changes seem to feel much nicer and stiffer than cable changes.

cable changes are way sloppier ;-(

Awesome weather today meant I was able to begin the strip down...



Steering rack was a pain in the ass to get off due to my manifold being sooo close to the rack mount but I managed to get a stubby spanner in there and my neck muscles got a good workout in the process Mad

G/box just needs unbolting from block and mounts to come out now but obviously I may aswell wait until seals etc are here for replacement box before I remove. I took off my anti roll bar to fit new bush's - your guna have fun doing it too Lee slaphead and also ground the surface rust off the bottom of my wishbones to give em a lick of paint Shocked





Just a case of waiting until parts turn up now and hopefully the weather will be nice during the week so I can get it all done before this coming weekend for testing/adjustments...

I promise I will try and have her done by Friday but the amount of time it took me just to put the flippin new steering rack in, it doesn't look good...

Got all my parts today which was cool but didn't have a great deal of time after work so managed to build rack and fit, fit new g/box main shaft seal, push rod, release bearing and cap....

Suspect
