Cheers Guys, forgot to mention I just got these dark coloured watanabes in 16x8 which should suit the factory orange nicely.

Just test fitted the 16x8 wats with 225/45 tyres, they look great (against the etch ::)) but I'm thinking by the look of it i won't have to roll the guards.

At the moment I'm undecided on the front spoiler or the factory valance with a small factory chin/lip attached, so I'm thinking to just paint both and decide from there. One of the reasons as you can see in the pic is the slope of my driveway which looks like it may eat my front spoiler at the first attempt to drive out.

Youd be surprised but even on lowered zeds the front spoilers still don't hang very low. Not nearly as much as most imports. My car would get up that pretty easy.

I've got a current golf gti as well Tim which i back in to the garage and it just scrapes on the way out, I think I may get the factory valance and the aftermarket spoiler painted so i have the option anyway.

Mossy

Love the teaser shot of the wheels. Any chance you can take some of the front setup / offset and also of the rear and car side on? I want to get a perspective of the tyre height relative to the body and wheels (as do i suspect about 800 other blokes!).

Looking super too, the car and engine that is!

Cheers

Adam.

Painted the gearbox today, gave it a good degreasing a few times as the crud was in all the pits, then went over it a few times with wax and grease remover and then painted aluminium, came up pretty good i think.

Hey Mossy,

Any reason why you painted instead of blasting or something??

If I bead blast the box i would want to get the whole thing stripped down and rebuilt, but it worked fine when i was driving it so a nice paint job and some seals will do for now ;), the other major factor is money is getting tight at the moment with our baby coming so I will have to watch the cash flow, or at least hide it from the missus ;D
