Removed boot seal and rear lights, fish oiled up behind them and replacing with new lights and seal, Replaced rear left door handle, and stood looking at it for a while... decided i need more time in life.

I now have boxes and boxes of stuff to put onto the 90 from the other 90 that I just stripped - just need the time to do it!

Fitted new rear disc pads, and also halved the pad area with a grinder, should be good now.
Skill is, sucessfully tightrope walking across the Niagra Falls.
Intelligence is, having the sense not to do it.

removed a few more bolts and screws to get at the jumble of wiring behind the dash and looked at some G60s wondering what they would look like on the Cq...

But on a non-vag note, prepared a rear caliper carrier and guide pin to be installed in the Bighorn...

Well I've been busy with work and this will be my last installment until my boxes from the UK turn up.

This morning at the tyre shop the good tyres finally came off my old ROH Reflexes.

 
The snow tyres on my new estorils have come off to make way for my good tyres and the result is what you see down below.



Looks great with the OEM wheels and I can't wait to fit my bilsteins I got from Cynic's parts corrado, I aim to do the shocks later this year. Have to email UK VW regarding R32/TT bushes to replace my old 19 year old ones.

Next job I removed the battery and removed some rust from the battery support bulkhead with wire brush and treated with rust inhibitor. It's another thing I'll have to mention to the panel shop when the time comes, so yeah more $$ gone.


Next weekend I'll probably clean my Bilsteins and give them a lick of yellow.

Adios amigos

you change springs just for a WOF, and then swap right back so its illegal again? hmm

oops my bad, i figured the reason you took the lowered springs out for a WOF was because it wasn't legal with them?
