Right so its about time to get a project thread going.

Back in February i treated myself to the supercharged 6 below. Big grin

Formerly owned by m306 then doof.
m306's project thread: http://www.306gti6.com/forum/showthread.php?id=139761







Since Ive had it Ive only done a few little cosmetic bit.

Fitted:

Front splitter
Black masks by gnrlee
OMP upper strut brace
kenwood head unit
Fusion sub
Replaced the stainless heater control for a black one
All interior lights to white led
sprayed the center console trim but going to be done again
Heko wind deflectors








Dark spots are loose lamp holders but this didn't happen immediately and i cant be bother to pull the cloaks out again atm.



Then yesterday i made the 6 hour round trip to meet midlife and purchased some goodies from him.
Bought his full 406 330mm brembo set up and his set of 17" OZ Ultralegerra's.

Got the wheels fitted this morning and im liking it. Thumbs up







Defiantly needs lowing to reduce the arch gap and hopefully i can get the brembo's fitted in the next couple of weeks.

Thats all i can think off for now.

Ride height doesn't look bad at all with the O.Z wheels. Would need lowering to look the best on cyclones though I think.

Made some good progress in the last week or so, Got the new discs and bells cleaned up, ive put some VHT lacquer on the bells to they are easy to clean and keep looking shinny.





Also had the wheels redone but don't have any progress pics of that. Doh

Then today me and a mate got the wheels, brakes and front lowering springs on. The black bolts i got work perfectly and look so much nicer than the old galv ones. Thumbs up





Now the springs which were on the car initially were supposedly -25, So i got some -30 which on the listing said a drop of upto -40 which was ideal but they don't seem to look any different know there on. How long do springs take to settle and how much are they likely to drop?

Also took off the chrome badge from the boot and replaced with a red gti badge, im not 100% sure on this, doesn't help the 6 is very faded compared to shinny new gti badge. Anyone know if you can still get the 6 badges anywhere?



Ill put up some better pics tomorrow as we were loosing day light when i took these.

Looks wicked!

Horses for courses badge wise but that's not strictly right for a phase three. Personally I much prefer chrome GTi and a red 6 as per OE, but it's your car Thumbs up

Red six badges used to be all over eBay but don't appear that often now No

Did a little bit more today, Sorted out the dark spots on the clocks and fit and upper glove box. The intention is to hopefully put a boost gauge in there, temp gauge for the charger and a fuel ratio gauge.
