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

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.

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

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

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.
