    Once you are done with rust repairs. Squirt it all with your brunox/anti corrosion paint of choice. Then go ahead and spray a bunch of chassis wax in there. Very little moisture will get up in there, it's not like the sills where water drains out of. So paint and wax is overkill

    Remote mount it under the frunk. Heater blower m8
  5. This is one of those hub infront of disk setups so wheel pcd is not changed at all. 6 holes to bolt the disk to the hub. I have chosen a rotor as close as I can find off the shelf. Would that be considered any different? The mounting bolt pcd on the rotor is unfortunately ever so slightly larger than the one on the hub. Looks like I will redrill in the space in-between. Is there a minimum distance to the edge I can have the holes? I'll get someone to make the centering ring and drill them Here's a pic

    I saw an injection turbo manifold for an A series the other day. Sounds like it would be the most economical. Plus Italians love tiny turbos
  7. any issues around using a centering ring to help mount a brake rotor with an 88mm centre hole on a hub with an 84mm centre hole? I see they are used on vws with audi big brake conversions overseas and it sounds better to me than relying entirely on the bolts also on a similar topic. Are there any requirements when it comes to redrilling the mounting holes in a brake rotor? is it legal?
  8. typically it could be the TB or IAC. if you have cleaned them it may need a new IAC also check vac hoses, a leaking vac booster can cause this. also a flogged out MAF

    Safety glasses Earmuffs AND the guard is still on the grinder! Good work. Hows those A pillars Love the mods to the chop shop design
  10. Drill it out. Friction fit a plug. Redrill? Plug may need some weld? Red locktite?

    You can also use a drill bit on any pitting

    Cool enough to stand to be in overalls today This is rusty It's got crappy weld new panels in over rust repairs So I cut it out Unstitched all the welds and cut out the spotwelds. Was just going to cut out the corner edge and replace that, but realised I didn't really want to spend the time to stitch a long strip into a big flat panel. Also the panel being a wheelwell in a wellside is full of small dings. Also it's pretty thin steel. Decided it would be best to make a new one out of 2mm sheet. Pretty quick, hardest part was getting enough leverage on my bender as I'm yet to make a proper handle. Anyway New one Sits in place without any help which is usually a good sign. Now to do everything else. At least it's no #Saab

    Worst one Hammer and dolly to fit As you can see from all the fresh steel, this one was pretty thin

    Blast some durapox in there with a chassis wax gun. Then fill with chassis wax
