    I got the stud conversion from wheelpowerdevon mate. Give them a ring as they're not listed on the website. I highly reccomend you start with something flat/small/disposable. As you will get it wrong. (Carbon) i have learnt and learnt the hard way. Every day i still learn new tips and tricks. Time, patience and a serious mental calm is required at times.

    Butttttt is now back being my daily hack. Fitted a new box, single mass flywheel, Uprated sashes clutch kit, new bearing and works. Solid engine mounts and another service. Also had the down pipe off for a pre cat delete. Lowered it some more. Keeps me happy.

    Been a while since i been on here! This is how she sat for quite some time. Has a lovely parking ticket. Then wrecked the box. Lost 1st and release bearing shat itself. Over this time i become quite the carbon dabbler. What obviously started as a hobby has become something more.
  8. Mkv Gti gearbox codes

    Hi all, I'll start of with the problem. Car is a 2006 golf edition 30 (manual) I've lost 1st gear... Done all the usual playing around with linkages to try get it in. Guess the 1st/ 2nd hear syncro has gone. My question is. What's going to be the best method round it. I have spoken to a couple of gearbox specialist round my way and they can't really quote a price untill it's off and in there workshop. Would it be cheaper to buy a new box, if so what gearbox codes work on my platform? Also, any recommendations on garages / specialists round the norwich area. Not a cheap fix either way i know. But saving a little here would help me big time. Thanks in advance.

Lol Had some left over sound deadening from the last project. Stuck that in the wheel well. Annnd sorted my spare wheel tool kit out. Added my torque wrench and a few other bits. Neatly cut into the original foam.
