  1. so its been a while since anything worth mentioning has changed but that has finally changed and i made a bit of an impulse buy. wasn't sure while i was waiting on the paperwork coming though but a lot happier how i have it on the car
  2. really looking forward to this one
  3. so I've been keeping myself rather busy over the past month, i had been gathering up some parts for a while and its all finally coming together. bought a damaged tts front bumper and repaired it, new set of ttrs side skirts and due to how tight the front fitment was on the oz wheels a set of mucke 30mm wider wings along with a ttrs grill. id always fancied white tt before i bought one but i couldn't find a white tfsi in my price range so i settled for red, but the urge got the better of me and i decided to have a go myself at doing a vinyl wrap on the car. I'm pretty pleased with how it has came out and i enjoyed doing it. few bits of dust under it here and there but its to be expected really when your doing it in your garage. anyway heres a few pics of my progress along the way. wrapping the door shuts tonight and then brakes are going on tomorrow night hopefully then a good clean and ready for dub shed. started by stripping the front down for the replacement parts and to allow me to wrap around the leading edge of the doors offering up one of the new wings to see how it lined up, pretty impressed with the fit first panel on the car done little detail of the corners, took me a bt of work to get into the way of how to approach the corners but i think i got better at it as i went on bonnet was probably the most awkward panel to do due to the size of it tts bumper done with the new grills in few corner details and one of the finished wrap. i know some people won't like the idea of it but for me it was a cost effective way of getting what i wanted and i always enjoy trying something new would love to hear what you think.
  4. just a quick update now that I've been able to get the new wheels test fitted. need to do a bit of work at the back as its touching a tab on the quarter and should be able to get the front down a bit more too :)

  10. so finally got the tmb's sold last week and put some of the money towards something that I've wanted for a long time :P bought them off kyle jackson on saturday and went home and made myself up some carriers to get a template for someone to make me a proper set, turned out well and was able to get a good fit on the disk. i will check again once i get pads to make sure they are 100% square. porsche panamera 6 pots with 390mm audi rs6 wave disks. really pleased with how i got them to fit up just need to do a bit more work on them
  11. Thanks I have it all primed now going to leave it a few days and let the primer sink a bit to see if it needs any more work
  12. bought something to keep me busy for a few nights. and one with the grills and split set into place
  13. attended titanic dubs on saturday ran by the guys at GTINI great show as always. a few pictures taken by Adam Hamill
  14. Small update. Had a sticking rear calliper for a while now so finally got round to getting it fixed. Also got started the false floor for the boot. Just made a wooden frame first then used the boot carpet as a template cut it out and then measured the spring box and pump and got it cut out. I just can't decide what to wrap it in now. Do I try and get a carpet that matches or do I ignore it and wrap it in something different??? Opinions welcome
