  1. Yesterday
  2. The big winter strip down has begun. Instant regret. First job was to make a garage bed for the dog, as he is probably going to have to spend a fair bit of time out there this winter.
  3. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    Bloody autocorrect! GOLF not Got.... too tired for this crap haha
  4. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    Car looks fantastic. Just about to start a very slow/amateur rebuild on my Mk1 Got Cab. Low mileage so always planned to leave it fairly OEM but discussed so many engine options in recent weeks it's unreal. Top work!
  5. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    Yeah happier than I thought I was going to be !! Surprised it had a front end left on it !!
  6. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    Hopefully mate, just seen the pics of yours... doesn’t look too bad actually, bet you’re relieved!
  7. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    Who’s doing rebuilds of chargers these days, other than ocd? And who supplies chips?
  8. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    £120 for the cam and £100 for the throttle body. Then all you would need is g60 injectors, a high spec charger and chip and it would see 170ish
  9. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    Are those wheels 15's? Looks good.
  10. 77 Mars Red Porsche 924

    This has lots of potential!
  11. 1974 Swallowtail Golf G40

    I wondered where you were going with the car ! The g40 will be a decent little engine in the swallowtail
  12. Last week
  13. 75 marinogelb swallowtail

    The car has finally been dipped and was delivered up to Irvs restos on Thursday. I'm happy with how the car came out of the dip as i didn't think that there'd be a front end attached !! As you can see, the car needs a fair few panels (which I have) and if anyone knows somebody with a swallowtail front cross member (the part the rad sits on) that they are willing to part with i'd be grateful if you could give me a shout !! The top part of mine is good, it's just the lower section that the mount attaches to that has vanished i'm popping up to Irvs mid January so should have a few more photos.
  14. Air ride question

    Adam and paul Thanks for the replies, I've been reading the technical guides for the Audi all road and it appears that it only adjusts it's height when steering says the car is going straight and it checks every 12seconds. Adam, what manufacturer system do you have fitted? Does bag pressure really fluctuate that much when driving? I understand air pressures change with temperature and compressing air makes it warm hence pressures change but I guess this is only on long journeys?
  15. A4 B6 salvage

    The brakes and lines are on, obviously need to let them bed in first before I can really test them but the difference is like night and day, can definitely feel them bite now excuse the dirty car and kurbed alloys, the mud makes the arches look rusty In person the discs look huge, don’t look so big in the picture
  16. Air ride question

    You can choose what it does. Mine adjusts on the move; but only when the pressure has stabilised for 30? seconds. So I'll stop at long lights and it'll adjust sometimes. Can turn it off though.
  17. Don’t use Instagram, so that would be the end of that then!
  18. A4 B6 salvage

    Yeah I thought about the Cupra T splitter but there is no way I’m paying £50 for a bit of plastic that used to cost £20 a few years back I have a cone filter fitted and it’s blowing from the flexi so it sounds pretty raspy at the moment will probably look at getting the exhaust done next month, picking up the keys to our first home next Friday and we have lots of renovating to do so will have to see how far the wages can stretch

    Awesome lupo mate, I was unsure on the Arosa front end at first but looking at the last picture I think it’s going to look great. Fresco green is one of the best colours I think
  20. Handbrake calipers

    Just use a mk3 golf etc rear caliper?
  21. Air ride question

    You can alter the bag pressure whilst on the move if you wanted. The height based are miles better than pressure based as if you put people / luggage in the back of the car they automatically adjust the ride height to compensate. Pressure based systems don't do this. Downside is height based systems are considerably more expensive than pressure based.
  22. 77 Mars Red Porsche 924

    Picked this new fuel pump up few weeks ago just waiting on a mate to come round to have a play and a few cool pics from a little clean on the weekend the 924 even got a towbar my mate came round we drained the fuel tank took the old fuel pump off to fit the new one then came across the accumulator looked like it was wasn't working so my mate said he would clean it up first change the seals before buying new here a few pictures of the new setup ready to fit Saturday cant wait to fire it up.
  23. Air ride question

    Hi tried searching online and on forum but not really found the answer I'm after... I'm interested in the various air ride systems, and I know that some solutions are more complex than others (ie control units vs manual switches). And I see there is some that monitor bag pressure and others that monitor vehicle height. But do the systems with control units adjust the bag pressure whilst the car is in motion or just during start-up/when the car is static, say at traffic lights?
  24. First car - 52' Lupo SE JDO

    Had an hour spare last night so i've got another little job out the way.. Managed to crush my indicator connectors so i've had to replace them, thankfully we've got the stocked at work, other than pins for them. Good job we've got a god knows box of pins! Miraculously found some lol All done, just need to find some slim conduit now! Also had a play with the notch, just to have a quick look at how much lower it sits now the coils been wound down 10 threads so it's now maxed out. BEFORE AFTER So i've now lost about 15mm off the overall height, but i want more. Helpers are coming out now.
  25. Handbrake calipers

    It needs to be cable operated.
  26. Handbrake calipers

    Depends if it needs to be cable or hydraulic? Most people use r8/lambo/ferrari caliper
