  1. Hi guys, I spotted a couple of cars running hydraulic suspension at VAGE last week and it got me curious. In particular the blue Mk3 and the green 'rocco. My own mk3 is static, which it's nowhere near as low as I would like it to be but I'm limited practically how low I can take it by the condition of the roads I drive daily. I've been trying to find some info and/or build threads on those two cars but haven't had much luck to date. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of info on hydro, especially on mk3s, on the net at all that I could find. I'm pretty sure the 'rocco at least was done by John Peden and I'm quite intrigued by how it was set up. Does any one know of any build threads (of those two or anything else similar) or useful forum/sites, rough pricing ideas, diy builds or how John Peden sets them up? I saw the kit offered on the Rayvern site but it wasn't very informative and didn't look like what I saw in the boot of the Scirocco. And, for those who've used it, how does it compare to Air and Static?

    Just uploaded, the latest StanceLife feature - James Rawling's Volvo C30 on Rota Grids. Worth a read Find the article here
  3. Right typically this would happen the week before Limerick... For a while the car has been slow to start on damp mornings, but once started would run fine for the rest of the day or several days with no issues. Strangley while trying to start it would turn over, but then after you release the key the engine would feel like it was trying to fire for a couple of turns... Last Thursday hit a big water splash (concealed pot hole) and the car cut out within 30 seconds. Since, it has real trouble starting (similar to the previous issue, but 10x worse) and when it eventually does fire it will idle ok, but stall as soon as revs are applied - when the engine is cold it seems to run ok for a few minutes and then stalls. Distributor and leads have been replaced recently. There appears to be spark and there appears to be fuel. HAve swapped over the air meter for another one with no change... At this stage any suggestions would be very much appreciated
  4. Car gets better and better Marty. Send me a PM if you would, we've got some one in your area happy to do a shoot.

    We're looking for some one to de a photo shoot of John Peden's D4M L0 Porsche for StanceLife. Is there any within striking distance of Lurgan willing to have a go and check out this awesome car?

  9. THanks for the reply Rob. Be well interested to keep track of you're getting on. I'll keep looking for one myself. May have to get one from the UK...
  10. I'm thinking of doing a 'battlescooter' type side project to match the Golf, take to shows and as laugh. So I'm looking for a Honda Zoomer aka Ruckus or even a Honda Metropolitan. Any condition is considered, written off, not running or even parts. Just has to be cheap Thing is these things seem to be rare as in the Rep., so hopefully I'll have a bit more luck up North?
  11. I'm looking to retrim some car seats I sourced. I'm quite happy to tackle this myself - got a heavy duty sewing machine handy. But I can not find any where (online) that sells car seat upholstery fabrics... just plain black would do. Any one have any suggestions?
