    Bonelorry's Lemon Yellow Daily

    Hi everyone hope you are well? Been a few Months since I last posted, I still have the Fabia and it is still proving to be a great little Car. Now coming upto 78K Miles and next Month is a Year since it had its Major Service so I have booked it in with my Ex-Vag Mechanic to do the following... Interim Service/Oil & Filter Change Timing Belt and Water Pump, G13 Coolant New Aux/Drive Belt New Header Tank and Cap (for Aesthetics) The Timing Belt was last done 4 Years ago and even though its not done anywhere near the 60K Mileage it is obviously due, I have yet to get the Parts but will be using Genuine VAG items from TPS. Sadly though since June the Fabia has been getting very little use, I have lost my secure and Free Car Parking space in Sheffield for approx the next 6 Months and I refuse to Park in a Public Car Park or leave it on a Street somewhere so was forced to find alternative transport. I work shifts as a Train Driver and very often start before the first Bus/Tram/Train when on Mornings and the same goes for when I finish at Night, Plus I live in the sticks about 10 Miles from my workplace so decided to get a little Motorbike to commute on. So I now have the Fabia VRS and 2 Motorcycles, My 180BHP 2005 Kawasaki ZX12R B4H for Fun/Summer use and when I want to scare myself & a little Kawasaki ER5 500CC Twin for Commuting on. I have toyed on and off with the idea of selling the Fabia not for financial reasons but because its seems a waste having it sat in the Garage and at present doing only 50 Miles a Week as its only getting used in my Spare time but I am hoping the current situation will be sorted in 6 Months and I will get Parking back again. Plus I know the Fabia inside out and have total faith in the Car, It wants for nothing as everything has been replaced and I would never find another like it so should really keep it. So that is whats happening at the moment!

    Rup's T6 Transporter

    Been absent for a few years now and just been bitten by the bug again so thought I'd stick a few pics of the new project up. Got some big plans for this over the coming months, thinking of going down more of a day van route instead of a full conversion as I need to still use it as a van sometimes. 2017 T6 Transporter Startline 102bhp H&R Deep drop coilovers and Amorak 18" banded steelies wrapped in Falken rubber. MK6 golf steering wheel Panel van spec currently but booked in for kombi windows in the slider and opposite, insulation and carpet lining with LED spots and electrics next month. Picked up a Kiravans swivel base and looking at a re trim on the front seats too. Planning on running it like that over winter then many more things next year

    So I've had the KW coilovers on for nearly two weeks now and I thought I'd give you my thoughts on them. Comfort: It is instantly obvious that the ride is firmer versus the standard suspension but other than a few uneven country lanes, I haven't noticed the ride to be overly bouncy or choppy. These have definitely been designed more for road and everyday use compared with some of the other coilovers I've had in the past. The damping levels are set from factory and are not adjustable and KW seem to have this spot on. The feedback through the wheel now is so good and she corners very, very flat. There are few long, sweeping dual carriage ways near me which you could comfortably take at 40 mph without too much body roll which I can now take between 55 mph to 60 mph. Lowering: The front's are down about 40mm with plenty of thread left for additional lowering; however I am a little disappointed with the rear drop and it's slightly uneven from one side to the other. The rear perches are set to the lowest setting on both sides and whilst the offside rear is 30mm down from standard height, the nearside rear is only about 15mm down. They are supposed to lower up to 50mm at the rear. I've been in touch with KW UK and waiting for a response on this. My thought's on this are that standard S8/A8 sports were about 20mm lower from factory versus the non sport suspension, so the offside being only 30mm down is probably about right but I'll wait for them to confirm this. I'm still at a loss as to why one side is lower than the other though Here is a quick couple of pictures I grabbed yesterday taking the family out. I will grab one later showing the nearside for comparison.

    wishbone removal

    i would say depends upon how shagged the old bushes were and when it was last aligned. i'd do it for peace of mind - cheaper than a pair of tyres!!

    Pretty sure it won't. Front ball joint bolts aren't slotted, neither are the bushes.

    Vw Mk2 Jetta Coupe 4motion Build.

    Update. Yesterday managed to finish off the grille which has turned out better than i thought it would. Sanded down ready for primer. Primed And the result The other challenge was to modify the Golf slam panel to accommodate the lights The idea here is i will be able to retain the TT headlight adjustment The headlight motor housing on the TT headlights Finish product, couldn't test it on the shell as the spit is in the way Total cost of the grille, £110 not bad for a one off item.

    Mk6 GTi build

    Well it's been a while since the last time I posted, the intention as mentioned earlier in the thread was to sell up for a something older. I'd always wanted a Mk1 golf but the prices for the condition I'd want were way out of my price range, and almost a similar story for a Mk2. I stripped the Mk6 and took a bit of time away from cars, I had a lot on my plate at the time but to cut a long story short I did get a mortgage and bought a house first, we renovated it and moved in... Happy girlfriend. Couple of weeks down the line with a pay rise from work I started thinking about cars again. My pal max had the motor below and I'd had my eye on it for a little while, Never thought I'd own a Corrado but the price was right and the condition of the car is almost flawless. I won't bore you any more, heres my new motor... G60 Corrado. I'm over the moon! Probably loads more photos to come! Cheers, Sam
