    haha I had the same problem waiting on rotors from Brakes Direct... It was always "arriving" next week.

    What's the plan for the bonnet?

    It’s ridiculous. Bought in July with the understanding there was a 2-3 month wait. Don’t get replies for emails, get told the same thing every 2-3 weeks when I call up.


    Got a bonnet vent and guard vents made up via the lovely LankyVW. Need to fold them open and powder coat them black.

    Got everything cut out to fit the louvres. Drilled the mounting holes and dropped the vents off to the powder coaters.



    Also got sick of my hacked to nothing front crash bar that still weighed a bit and oil cooler hoses slightly rubbed on.




    Insert a couple bits of aluminium.

    Put a border of foam around the radiator support to block up the gaps around the radiator.

    And I did something I swore I never would do and bought a non plastic crack pipe. Worked out about the same as plastic and meant I could weld up the bung I wasn’t using to avoid any leaks down the track.

    They finally arrived!!

    After 18 months of “should be 2 weeks” the new brake kit has arrived and been installed.

    going to fab up a tubular crash bar?
    also what pads are you running with?

    This thing is a beast. Good move welding up that useless bung as well, no one ever uses it.

    Nah no crash bar. Not required where we are going.

    Ended up with Project Mu Club Racer pads

    It’s funny because it rocks around on the jackstands.

    I took a fair bit of weight out and now it tilts to the back stands. So when someone touches the front of the car it drops about 50mm to the 4th stand
