  1. Mega motor Nigel, nice to see another Corrado out.
  2. Hi Damo, welcome along; was down at the Terenure show in Dublin last week and it was great.
  3. Split Wheel Problems

    So I finally changed up the car and got a A6 C6 Avant, brilliant boat. I bought a set of 19 inch Speedline Rims for it with the intentions of splitting and refurbing. Stripped the tyres today and began trying to split the rims this evening.  On the first wheel I got all the nuts out apart from two which I completely rounded and the centres seemed to be seized to the barrel. Anybody any suggestions on removing the two remaining rounded nuts and in general how to split a wheel easier? These clearly have never been split from manufacturing and are currently steeping in wd40 over night. Pain is an understatement!

      I have never taken mine apart for this reason and even my local alloy refurbisher was reluctant to split them for me. Having said that there is always a way. With the rounded nuts you could try bolt extractor sockets if you can get a lend of some, a few light taps with a hammer always helps. However, there are plenty of guys on here who have done it for real so should be able to give some proper advice!

  4. Sweet; excellent film with the Mustang and Charger duelling.
  5. That looks sweet; always wanted one of these motors.
  6. Nice wheels!
  7. Nice motor and welcome along! Castlewellan always a good little show.
  8. Looks like quality stuff Nigel. Hope it goes well.
  9. I might have a used top spring plate you can have unless you are looking a new one? I always cover these in waxoyl when I am refitting.
  10. Bit of a marmite piece; they are certainly very retro but not for everyone! If you like it go for it - that's what I always do.
  11. LED's look good. Today I mostly fitted polyurethane hangers and the one with a chain inside to stop my Milltek hitting the rear beam on the mk2. Thankfully it has worked.
  12. That looks pretty good!
  13. When I arrived I identified myself as GTINI but they asked to put me outside instead. Actually this turned out to be ok as I got a great spot and was near the aircooled bus guys. Was a great show.

    Welcome along, Polo driver perhaps?
  15. Entries obviously closed now; if you need another car for the stand I would be keen to go.
