Those pink wheels are getting painted dark grey or black when I can be bothered and will be going back on the polo. I will be in the market for some nice wheels in the next few months though, just need to get the rear coilovers fitted as I've got a buyer for all the old suspension. Oh and get another pump on it and get it running before it gets too cold to work on it.

Well I haven't done much with the cabby lately, had other commitments and its been pretty cold lately, I did however get the 4 branch manifold on, wasn't too much bother to get on, just had to remove the ARB then it slipped into place. I have a proof shot of this, although its not very clear.



I also fitted the fuel pump I got off a forum, but just my luck its actually in worse order than the one I got with my engine, so after xmas I'm going to get a brand new one, they're £70 which is a lot for what it is, but I don't want to be buying a load of 2nd hand pumps until I get a good one (I did this last winter with ECU's when I converted my old mk2).

I really don't know, I'd love to go back to banded steels but I want to run 280s eventually so it has to be 15s. I like the wheels I have for it (that the polo is using) but they're badly kerbed in places. I don't want to spend too much on wheels either, I'd rather spend on a new interior and making the damn thing run, but I'd love a set of 15x7 RZs or even 6s. But on the other hand I'd love to run some wide 13s for a bit.

Nice........


.....but... You need to either wrap the manifold or the steering boot pictured as I guarantee it will melt very quickly!

you read my on that, I was going to ask the question on whether anyone has suffered a melted steering boot, so I take it some people have then? I might be able to knock up some kind of heat shield for it which would be easier than taking it back off to wrap it.
