Been collecting up parts over the past few weeks ready to upgrade my 256mm brakes to 280mm. In good time too as my audi 256mm stuff sold today.

Black diamond dimpled and grooved disc's, G60 Black diamond predator pads.
Early VR6 calipers and carriers(same as G60).
Adaptors

Also picked up a pair of Scirocco 16v handbrake cables today, ready for when i do rear disc conversion. I already have the other bits.




Think i'am going to get all the calipers powder coated and maybe get my sump done in the same colour Smile

Discs was 70 and pads 46 mate. Gone for dippled and grooved discs to limit brake fade when i'am on a track as I suffered a little from it when using the solid brembo's. Great for normal road driving though. Do a bit of research into pads mate cause some are only good when hot(track).

Smoothed my ABF rocker cover today as i'll be getting some parts powder coated soon.

I cut the tabs off the sides then smoothed down the casting marks. Finished off with a quick sanding. Shot blasting will do the rest


Also chopped in a section into the drivers side quarter panel that i did'nt like


Tacked in. Also welded a bit from the inside so theres less to grind down smooth Wink


Will fill in the gaps in stages so that i dont produce too much heat and warp the panel.

I did start on cutting a piece to do the section thats a bit lower on the panel but was time for tea so i packed up

Just this pic


Did the smaller bit today. Ready for a skim of filler

Also removed more undersealer while its easier to do without the rear panel being on. Was covering some nice holes in the boot floor though slaphead . Welded those up too. I'll grind them down tomorrow
