Update time for those interested

Collected new wheels last weekend after the Gti international show. Compomotive TH mono's 8Jx15in et25. Approx 6 months use so pretty much near mint.
I stripped the tyres off at work the following day


I do have the centre caps too

Yesterday, i collected another set of wheels from Simon(G60SG) on here
Ronal LS's 7.5Jx15in et25. These need a refurb. I dropped 1 off at wheel genie in huntington to have a flat spot taken out which i should have back within the week.



Not everyone's cup of tea but who cares, these are being wrapped in Federal RSR's(ordered) for possible track days and my annual nurburgring trips excited

Thought i'd try 1 on for size



Tried a TH mono on while i was at it



Today, i went to the stanford hall show where i made arrangements to collect a red stripe interior


Only need the rear bench tbh as i plan to collect Gem and our first child from the hopital in the golf Smile . 2 weeks til due day Shocked
I knew they was'nt going to be in the best of conditions for the price so i stripped the front seats down of the red stripe material so i can possibly retrim something at a later date. The frames are already in the car ready to be put in the scrap bin at work.

Also came across 2x brand new yokohama A520's at the show. A cheeky haggle and a bargain was had Thumbs up . Just need 2 more for the monos now.

The turbos are going nowhere. Can't bring myself round to replacing them with monos so I've sold them on.

I have however received my track tyres so hopefully wheel genie has sorted my wheel and I can get on with refurbing the ronals Smile

Ronals painted Smile



Fitted them today





Sadly my favourite back road has been resurfaced so i have'nt tested them out. Feels great driving around at low speeds though

I did raise the front to match the rear but still had some scrubbing. This will be resolved over the winter months though, along with a few other choice upgrades!

Cant wait for the next trip to nurburgring and a few track days next year excited

I have'nt done much to the arches on the front if you remember mate. Should just about clear once rolled. Adjustable top mounts will help too

With April only round the corner(the month i usually tax the car), i thought i'd fire up the beast and clean the dust off


Little wash



Had a cheeky little spin too. My god its weird having been used to driving my T4 daily lol but i like it excited

Should think it'll be MOT time soon so once ive got a fresh ticket, i'll crack on with a few mods Wink

Update

Taxed my golf for the summer so she's now back out to play Smile

Put a fresh MOT on it yesterday too

Had to take some pic's for my agreed valuation with insurance so I spent yesterday afternoon cleaning.

I also fitted my new crosshair headlights and my black powder coated eibach strutbrace.

What polish did you use G10 compound or just a good wax, she looks nice and glossy.

Well, its been sometime since I last updated my build thread. Other than doing Edition38 show last year, cars have taken a back seat due to moving house.

Anyways, now that my mate si's mk1 is nearing completion. Its time to kick start a full repaint of mine Smile





Bit later after mocking up where i'll be mounting my mocal oil cooler


Did a bit after work today. Very happy to find my inner drivers wing is in great condition and tbh, very sursprised my original wings have survived for so long given that they've had the gti arch trim water traps on. Will be replacing them for new genuine wings or maybe fibreglass. I'll repair my old wings for future projects.




Should have the passenger wing off tomorrow
