well done for doing it yourself mate............much respect.

But if you do or did need a hand then stick a shout out on here and there will more than likely be a convoy over to yours!! armed and dangerous with tools

awesome work

But the caps back on stopeed the crashy sound so happy on that front.

Havnt put new topmounts on to much of a tight arse and brought the new elder scrolls instead.

Dash don't say things like that you will give me bad luck!! Very Happy

Cheers Fitz will have to take you guys up on that when something blows up.

Nothing to report this week about from the Rocco apart from the wheel bolts undoing themselves on the way to work. Fun times!

Nice wheels Mat; there's probably cheaper options, but Blackboots in Chesham were really good with an old Mini of mine, and I had the laser alignment done too - I think I'll be heading over there with my Golf after coilovers go on.

Cheers for the help guys just need to save for some tyres!

ATS Euromaster in Aylesbury just got laser tracking stuff in so im told by a guy at work whos mate works there and loves a private job, im gonna head there when the wheels are done.

My wheels arrived today! Pretty scabby but working at a powdercoaters has its perks, heres a pic only brought 1 wheel home with me just to check they all fit. Going to be shotblasted and coated tomorrow hopefully.

My mate also gave me some Citreon C2 steels that he was going to scrap, gave me them for free so im going to blast and coat them at work, anyone intrested cheap to all nomads

Not much to report having some nice knocking coming from the CV joints, so I brought some light reading to see if I could fix that problem

DSC_0784

My window wipers came loose the other day so was driving in the rain with no wipers! great fun.

Got some new rear speakers of a guy at work to replace my 24 year old origanals.

Borrowed a halfords trade card and brought some proper tools to add to my childs tool kit!

DSC_0783

Got offered a BMW E30 318 Touring swap for my MK2 golf was soooooo tempted but want the big VW in my life and would cost me a bomb to run such a big heavy car.

And finally does not look like ill have any tyres until late January as Christmas shopping is expensive and still owe the tax man from when I was self employed.

Have a good Christmas guys!

Just brought a set of these

exip.

I was told they are exip weaves, got them for 130 with tyres all with good tread only problem is the tyres are a bit on the chunky side but I can live with them till they get low, these wheels will either go on Laurens MK2 or ill sell them on once they have been powdercoated, what colour do you think I should do them??

Happy new year

Both cars look great but well done on all the work on the Rocco.

I like the classic wheels on the GTi, they really suit them.
