  1. Got mine booked into KW restorations. Keith is the man he based just outside Sudbury. After lots of miles towing my car around and speaking to plenty of body shops. I was really impressed his work. (he's a a mk1 Scirocco man and part of the uk register). So plenty of rocco's down there for metal and paint. But i really liked his attitude, he makes all the right noises. He's got a face book page so you can see the work he's done and doing. Worth a chat. really nice chap.

    snapped bbs rm bolts

    If you have 9 bolts with the heads sheared off. I presume the rest have been removed. Can you not separate the lip from the barrel, leaving the sheared bolt in the barrel after its separated, there may be enough shank sticking out to be able to get hold of with some decent mole grips. Failing that i would get a Snapon extractor (The type held by a socket) and correct drill bit. Drill the shank centre nice and straight (not to fast as you will burn out the bit). tap the easy out into the shank then use the easyout to wind it out. I would defo use the Snapon ones they in my opinion the best and it won't be shagged out after its used on the first bolt. Hope this helps.

    Counter sunk socket M6x16

    Many thanks. Will get some ordered.
  4. Hi can anyone confirm that the front disc retaining screws for a mk2 golf are m6x16 counter sunk. Cheers.
  5. It's a clean break about 12" off one end fits together perfectly along the break. Would Scotch weld, p100 epoxy resin or anything similar work???. Inside looks like a lightweight dense foam type material. Would a would a plastic weld actually work. Thought it would need plastic to plastic like the repair of a cracked bumper skin.
  6. I've just received a mk4 Anni spoiler via parcelforce. Arrived in 2 pieces (snapped). Parcel force will not compensate or process claims for among other things car parts. Can the spoiler be repaired???. What can I do to join the 2 halls before having it painted. Your help and knowledge is much appreciated.

  11. Can you tell me the best method for removing the adhesive/sealant that is holding my spoiler on. looking to clean the area after removing the spoiler. without damaging the paintwork underneath. My boot spoiler is becoming dis-bonded so would like to remove completely. Cheers.

    G60/rallye radiator

    I had the same issue looking for a 580mm cored rad for my Golf G60. Only real option i found after much trawling of the net was a company called Pro Alloy. They can make you an alloy rad to the same dimensions and fitting point as the original with a thicker uprated core. The price was about £400 but absolute works of art. They have drawings stashed away. I believe a good few years ago they produced and sold them as uprated units to some of the tunning companys. they are based in Haver Hill, Suffolk. They produce a lot of rads, intercoolers, tanks and pipe work for race teams aswell as supply to people like Forge. Realy nice guys to talk. They will be able to help if you fancy going down that route.
