    silent coat is good for de drumming.

    alternative to heating is cooling the old mat and it'll go brittle

    cover the entire panel in 2mm where possible, it will make the world of difference, 4mm is only needed if you are fitting a huge sound system
    Thought I would have to, I suppose it's the proper way to do it. Will probably get the 2mm stuff as it's half the price of the 4mm.

    Cheers, yeah was a good find, came with the owners manual and a bit of early and recent history too. I am going to have to do a bit to the paint and interior but apart from that it is all good.

    Last weekend I fitted a lower dash speaker housing

    I also offered up the BBS splitter, looks good but need to make something that gets rid of the gap between it and the arch and flows nicely with the arch too.

    I was also thinking about getting the rear wheels banded to fill those rear arches but still keep it stock looking. Would like some alloys but want to wait to find some that are really unusual not just some nice wheels that have been done before.

    It's a 6x4 that fits in there but the one that it came with had a hole in and I never got round to getting another so don't know how much of a difference it will make.

    Ok I was going to keep them a secret till they were on but I can't not show them. They are a bit of a love or hate thing but I love them.
    Specs are 15" x 6J ET38. They were a collaboration between Bugatti and BBS and were inspired by the wheels from the EB110 SS. (They also came in 2 piece and 17")

    Thanks. They weren't as expensive as you would think actually, Less than a few hundred.

    I know but apart from the suspension, BBS splitter, Bugatti wheels and bumpers (old one was bent anyway), everything is original.

    The plan for this year at least is to make it look like a renndienst vehicle , then when it gets a respray I will probably go back to the original plan.

    I forgot to say, last week I cut a sun strip out of some old vinyl, some may hate it but i think it looks cool (and it means I don't have to remember to put the nasty sun visors up when I take a photo )
    IMG_9056.jpg
    (iPhone pic sorry)

    Today I test fitted the BBS Splitter, now all I have to do is paint it.

    IMG_9130.jpg
    Looks good apart from this bit, so i'm probably going to cut it off and drill a whole lower down.

    I will bear that in mind! I never even knew they existed before I saw them and they are in pretty good condition tbh with all the original centre caps. Just need some cool dust caps for them now.

    Yeah I appreciate it's not to everyone's taste. Took me a long time to repair, it was in a wreck when I got it but it was the only one I could find. Thanks hopefully be taking it to some shows in the next couple of months before the season ends.
