  1. Audi A1 by mgpdoc ••

    Another thing i ordered is some proper Recaro Subframe seatmounts for my car, since the ones i had were Recaro again, but for an Audi R8 it seems. Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Proper quality as always Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Installing the mounts is a bit tricky. You need to unbolt some framing off the oem seats, and u use it in between the chassis and the Recaro frames. As always pics will do the talking. I used completely new hardware everywhere and blue loctite to be safe like i have done in the past in my other cars Part from oem seat needed, practically the slider Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Start combining the two Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Remove old Recaro mounts Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Clean canvas Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Test fitting the new ones Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr New bolts on side frames Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr And ready to test fit Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Dont forget Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Looking much better and much safer Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr The car also had its programmed maintenance schedule Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Oil, Oil Filter Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Front and rear pads although they did not need to be changed Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wish I had the time to install the Porsche calipers someday though....

    So, truth be told i was pushing my luck somewhat Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr In the past i entered the sea with the Cherokee pretty ofter at this particular spot. However . . . This is not a Jeep Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Got pulled out by a family car, but not without my pride and my car being hurt as well. AC radiator got pushed by the bad Darkside IC installation probably, and also, wheels were scratched from the rocks at the beach. Had no Ac for the next days, and scratched wheels, oh well Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr On my way back home, at a highway parking Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Got back to Athens, and lost no time First AC radiator replacement, and new mounting points and brackets for the IC, properly this time, and not like my half-ass job on a bad product Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr All done and I love how the new BEHR Ac Radiator is silver instead of black Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Looks mean Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Temporary Audi wheels while mine were sent to be painted Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gave it a proper wash Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Do these wheels make it look like a Renault or is it just me Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr I also ordered this Powerflex mount - Diesel Specific - To reduce engine movement which was getting frustrating especially after the track visit. It increased vibration, but reduced movement like it should Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr Oem Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr And then wheels were ready I opted for a change to see how it would look. I normally like to keep my cars in a two tone theme. And this is no exception, it was red and black. However, i thought I'd give it a go on something rather different. So. . . Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr This is what I came up with Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr First time on the car Gunmetal by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal by mgpdoc, on Flickr They sure look bigger Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr To be honest at first i couldnt get used to it but the more i saw it the more i liked it Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Threw on some Rota caps in Gunmetal which I ordered from UK again Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr And the box as well Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Car is currently away on vacation mode, seeing some dusty roads and beaches Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Cheers Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Mike

  15. Hello guys. Been some days that i was ready to update my build threads of all the cars, when I logged in to my threads, and saw all my pics gone missing. I thought i had gone overboard with bandwidth, but then I also remembered, that i have a premium account, so that doesnt happen. Long story short, I figured out what PhotoBucket had done. So, currently, more than 8-9 years of build threads are useless. All that work and effort is lost. And what is more, Photobucket gave us NO warning, nor did they send their thoughts on this change whatsoever. I accept paying for using one's services. I dont accept being bullied into doing it, in such a non-professional way. I cant tell right now how I will continue blogging my build threads, but i wil definitely WONT be paying photobucket not 400, but not even a single cent. Cheers Mike
