The window grips are common as muck for breaking on mk4 max. Probs someone replaced them for the metal types and did'nt do them up enough.

Going to like how this mk4 turns out me thinks, get cracking asap R2D2 aka MK4 Gt Td - Page 2 51732

Don't put radweld in it you will truly funk it up then and block something and suffer overheating problems! I'd check around the lower drivers side of the engine, if it's got the pink antifreeze in it stains quite well so makes tracing leaks quite easy.

well im getting over heating any ways so how much worse can it be? plus every time ive used rad weld in the past its fixed the problem. il try and find the problem first but if i have no luck im chucking some ad weld in there

If your getting over heating it sounds like your water pump might be fooked. Or the thermostat is stuck closed

subway talk aside ive got an update! cheers

finally got my arse up to my mates garage to fit the coilies and arb. went pretty smooth apart from trying to get the old arb out of the mounts but we just got annoyed and went to town with a plasma cutter Razz

even though the rears are as low as they can go there still no where near where i want them but il wait until i get the 17s on there and see how they sit. annoying thing about mk4's is the subframe and front bumper sit low as hell in comparison to the sills. so even though it still looks high the subframes only about and inch and a half off the floor.

also ive started the referb of the 17s. ive almost got two done, just need to polish up the bolts. the other 2 faces are in the pipe line, just need a few spare hours.

picture time!

Good start mate!
I've got mine sat on the bottom part of the adjuster cup on the rear (just unscrewed the top half off) and up 20mm from the bottom of the front coilies and it sits just below the stock tyre height.

For uber sweet stance on your 17's you'll probably want the top half/maybe both halves of both adjusters out of the rear, and 10mm up on the front. Should give you a sweet sleight nose down stance.

Gimme a buzz when you've got the wheels built up and on. Gotta see what this beast sits like R2D2 aka MK4 Gt Td - Page 2 51732
