    Passion Garage - Bora Progress

    made a new thread to keep it very dedicated just to the progress of the car and get constructive feedback on mods and what i could do and any help i need and to show off the car a little

    2001 24v VR6 AUE 4motion Bora
    picked her up from Melbourne back in Early Feb and drove her home - thanks to Samuel Wood for helping me find the car and giving me a place to crash when i came down !!

    This is the car as it used to sit on the Volks before i sold them - Taken at Fitted Friday 2016



    How the car is currently as i wait on some parts and my new Wheels





    Current Modifications

    - new headlight covers plastic $30
    - MK5 GTI Red Stitched Steering Wheel
    - mk3 12v Steel Sump
    - Hella Magic Clears (First set in Australia for mk4 platform I'm pretty sure, anyone else got them ? or know anyone who does?)
    - Sony Radio - nothing fancy just to keep me happy on those long drives
    probably forgetting a few things

    - R32 Front LCA's
    - Drop Links

    - Stubby chrome or white Mirrors
    - Shaved Boot - with licence holder/or US Spec Jetta boot without boot lip (for the smaller VDUBBN Plates)
    - R32 Brake Conversion
    - Bora R or GLI - Side Skirts painted White
    - GLI front & Rear Valance - painted white
    - New front rubstrip - will keep the chrome just don't want the plate indent
    - Magnet Licence Plate Mod - Just like having the plate off the front
    - Stubby antenna
    - Tucked Bay - Remove emissions - Expansion tank delete ( replace with an overflow connected straight to the Rad ) - battery relocation to the boot - polished Rocker cover - wiper fluid tank removed - Intake Mani and Rad Support Wrapped with a carbon fibre overlay ( not the wrap but true carbon, i like the look, link - https://flic.kr/p/KtXjD7 ) - new coil pack wiring and spark wiring ( tucked under intake mani ) - tucked engine wiring
    - Engine mount spacers

    Thats all i can think of right now i guess

    now onto the car

    day i picked the car up




    got my new BC BR Coils straight from DUBTUNED




    cleaned the bay up a little - Painted the engine cover to match the bay ( keep it clean look ) and then my mate james did a home hydro dip job which actually came out pretty awesome and sortve matching my woodgrain trim




    Nickmk1's mk1 caddy 20vturbo both of the rigs at HOUSE OF VW



    Then after putting big holes in 2 alloy mk4 sumps i moved to a 12v vr6 mk3 steel sump and it saved me heaps !!
    still going strong even after a few sparks and harsh driving




    painted my other 4motion lip white and put it on and will be painting my rear valance the same. the finish came out really **** imo, when i repaint both lips i will be sure to sand waaaay more and put a heavy primer on so the paint doesn't chip and crack.

    Then nick hooked me up with a mk5 gti steering wheel with red stitching all round and perforated leather

    Red face

    my volks after i refurbished them






    then the wheels on the car a few pics of the burnt guards







    The majority of the stickers are off the car now the martini one was a joke sticker, and the passion banner is now off as well so is my Defyallodds rear banner as well


    Dubkorps sent me some stickers to cover up my rear guards





    and the Hella Clears i will take some better photos later once the new wheels are on








    So now, until i finish my HSC trials this is how the car will sit until i start doing some more work on the car.







    my mate from germany who i got the Hella's off also sent me some stickers, so i covered up the other burn marks with them




    car will stay on stocks til my wheels get here which will be 18x9.5 square

    Talking Quick Update HELP

    New wheels and Ground Control Camber tops arrived the other day thanks to samuel wood

    Specs on the wheels
    Genuine Azev Type B
    5x130
    18x9.5 Square - Unknown Offset but will measure soon
    215x40r18

    got a text from my mother

    " when did you buy new wheels ?, theres no space in the garage for 5 sets of wheels Brad.... "





    Ignore the mess of the house, renovations are almost over






    I really love the design of these and even the little detail of having Azev with the Diamond Stamped on the wheels, just rad









    Will mount them up soon, i have 30mm Adapters on the way thanks to Wheelmods.com.au






    Hoping to install the Camber Tops from ground control this week
    and then mount the wheels up when the adapters arrive

    Part number is Product SKU #CCPA4
    http://www.ground-control-store.com/products/description.php/II=653/CA=88



    I won't be able to do much until the reno's are finished and until i move, as my garage is full of Building materials and stuff for the house, so hoping the garage will be empty soon for the open houses and in-between open houses i can get the car in and out and get the camber tops in


    Also have Bora R Side Skirts coming in from a mate in the states sometime this week or next

    Quick Update

    Drove the car around the block, did a skid and made me happy again.
    i miss being able to drive this car everyday.
    still waiting on a few parts to come before i put it all together though.

    Anyone have tips on Painting Textured Lips ? ( Colour matching front, rear, and side skirts )
    I've tried some high fill plastic primer and a lot of sanding is there another quick ways/tips ?

    thanks guys

    Thumbs up

    aight lets do a quick update


    ordered the Adapters, just waiting for a response and a due date for them
    decided to go with 30mm all round hopefully it goes alright



    front end is still off til i can flare the guards and roll the inner lip or cut them out with a grinder ( plus has made working on the struts and that super easy !!!! )




    just need and want to clean up the bay a bit more make it shine, so will be spraying the Intake Mani black sometime soon
    and will get some billet caps made up for the oil, expansion tank, washer bottle ( if i still keep it ) and the steering fluid Reservoir



    most defiantly need a new expansion tank, this one is getting a bit gross



    also put a bit of clear coat on this burn mark ( from old tires ) so it won't rust ( hopefully )



    then got around to putting in the Ground Control Camber tops i got from Samuel with some help from Nick_mk1


    Before



    After







    Finished it up just before the rain started



    I'm super keen to get these on !!


    gave one of them a good clean and haven't gotten to the rest of them, they're in pretty good nik, look good, paint and centre caps all fresh !! and shine pretty good after a clean !!
    will be rad once I've got them mounted on
    might have to get smaller tires not sure yet, but we will see when we get there

    also have been thinking about some other colours for the wheels
    ( suggestions are welcome )

    some stupid stickers for fun til the guards go back on !!





    alright, til next time !!
