    Another set of wheels on the van. Was sick of the mis matched wheels so took these off the golf.
    Means I'll actually get on and do the paintwork on it instead of driving it. 😂
    Think I'm going to sell the rh splits and repaint the multispoke ones as I think I prefer them.

    Not really sure who I'd put money on to finish first.

    Gave it a wash tonight as I'm off to the annual mk1 owners with a couple of mates, it's covered in black tar spots. Never have a yellow vehicle.
    FFS! I changed those as well (Nov 2013), unless to guy who had it between you and me put on some shorter (shaggeder) items. If they are the standard length items I fitted, I've found another reason not to use ECP.....
    I officially owe Mk2 Pickup a pint!

    They were original long shocks.
    Not sure if it's had a different axle fitted as the flip job looks, well interesting. Doesn't look like the plates have been welded onto the axle just placed in. Old ones are still on the top and the unwelded ones look like a bit of channel with a notch.

    Finally had the dent in the rear sorted,
    Bloke next door to my work owed me a favour so said he would sort it.
    Was thinking of selling the rh rims I bought for it but then ended up buying a new pair of dishes. . Will make them 17x9 on the rear.
    Found a pic from a local show I went to in August. Absolutely nailed it down as we arrived so got rather lathered up.

    Had another running issue, thought the turbo had finally let go after boosting at 24psi for a while. Turns out my fuel filter was full of shit. New one fitted and back to thrashing the nuts out of it again.

    Finally got round to fitting mk2 312mm brake setup.
    Only because the g60 pads were down to metal and ducked one of the discs. Attachment 31150

    Also have it a wash and wax for the winter and fitted my new wheels. Just in time for them to get shitted up with all the salt on the roads.
    They are up for sale to fund a turbo for my vr6 mk2.

    Thanks.
    Vans had a bit of love the past week. Fitted new bottom arms as the bushes had decided to kind of die. Had a knocking for a while. 1 bush had no rubber left.

    Been having a measure up and deciding on bits for the rear air ride. Set about tonight machining the bush holder for the panhard bar and getting it tacked up.
    Mittys popping over tomorrow after work so we can get some sort of plan set in stone.

    Yer I have to try keep it tidy to get any work done. The one behind it has all my car/van parts on it and stacked around it.

    Yer the lathe is very handy. Good thing about my boss is I can use any of the machinery we have anytime I like.
