Are you planning a subtle drop as well, would finish it off.

well I have the 40mm kit I bought with the car..... although I'm going to look for some eibach springs and lower it around 30mm I think? As i said the wife will be driving it and she's not the brightest!!  :lipsrsealed:  :undecided:  :laugh:

Looks a nice one!

Would you believe I had a complete exhaust section which I had no luck selling and scrapped a couple of weeks back.

Coulda had it! You'll be able to swap your stuff surely though!

Where all my moneys went.

And good to see a Mk3 Mod back in a Mk3! :grin:

Yeah... That other fella, whatever his name is, doesn't count.  :grin:

Ah go f**k yourself.  :grin:

Nice to see you back in a MK3 Boney B. 'bout time really. Looks good, shame about the snow! Look after her, not many about these days, and you're right about the 7" wheels.

I am thinking o.e with some minor improvements??  :lipsrsealed:  (oh and steel wheels for the wife driving!! them 7" bbs are expensive and rare!!)

Sorry to hijack but are they really? Ive got a set in my shed that have been stripped of paint and bolts removed (still got). How much are they worth nowadays?

if they are anniversary 7" wide I have seen them go for £350 in rough condition, later mk4 type 6.5" wide sell for half that. that half inch does make a big difference!

Does the trim off the sills clip on that easily? I wanted to have a butchers at mine. i'm scared at what it might reveal though, seeing as i was pulling rotten metal out of my plastoc arch trim the other day!!!

Ive got 2 pairs of 7 inch anni alloys now after selling my 8v so if anyone needs a set let me know! They'll need a refurb but they are presentable.

well as I was able to give the car a proper clean I though I had best post some pics here




I have found the handbrake is sticking a bit today....so either cable or caliper repair time (both common mk3 issues, but the cable issue is a free fix! and I will try that first  :undecided:)... and tomorrow will be o.e headlamp blackening day!

The Hella's fitted may be going on ebay (unless I get a decent offer first!)
