Cheers :) Second Sunday of the month throughout the summer.

Rusty mostly performed really well yesterday, but I did have a minor issue - brakes - one in four times I pressed them they didn't work! Usually going down hill, they feel rock hard as if air is in the system but if you push harder the car squirms a bit then it's like you push through the problem and the brakes work. Really weird and I thought it was fixed when the front/rear bias valve was replaced. Dammit.

Most times they work perfectly. Almost everything in the braking system has been replaced - calipers refurbed, new hard lines, new flexis, new discs and pads, master cylinder rebuilt, bias valve replaced. Fluid level is staying constant. Unlikely to be the bomb as it's intermittent, and that also provides steering pressure, which is okay.

Confused.

Love this dash so much! Also I've covered 1200 miles so far in Rusty.

I've ordered a new pressure accumulator so we'll see if that sorts it. I'm told that the power steering drives directly from the pump and the bomb only pressurises the brakes, so it might explain some of the symptoms. Not sure why it would be intermittent though.

Well it's supposed to talk. I has been silent for several months now.

Me, at car shows/meets. Got to get low.

I hope those Ronals are busy getting refurbished. The car looks awesome but IMHO the 18s are just too much for the old car.
I know this is for MK1 golfs, but the analogy remains the same  8)

Haha that is brilliant. I agree the 18s are a bit too big, but I love them so much!
I'd like the same wheels in 17". There is a set of 16" 5-spokes for sale on one of the Facebook groups too.
