Oooh, updates. Congrats on the new job.

 

I don't mind the spoiler, you know. I think it'll decent once the car is sprayed and on the ground with wheels.

 

Had to look up what squint meant in English though.

if it's got a bulge you can always put a weight on it to flatten it out...  or put something in between it if it's squished  it might sort it out... that said if it's like that now i wonder what it'll be like when you are driving at high speeds.... maybe the horizontal parts are to thin...

I assumed he just meant it was bolted on wonky.

It could be it could also mean it is pushing up or pulled inwards... it could be either as if you look at the mounting bracket it might be just that... but if he didn't mount it straight well than he probably would've said it's wonky... or on the wonk...

@adam- : care to help us out here?

Oke that makes more sense now.... human error... so it's on the wonk.... a waterlevel would've helped you putting it on straight even if the car wasn't on a level floor... a well you'll just have to do it again...

I've got a spare boot that's solid so I'll use that.  Need to get a 6R handle from somewhere too!

That's it yeah.  Don't want to run a vacuum line across the bay because it's ugly, hoping I can stash the Merc pump in the scuttle and run the line down from there so it can't be seen.  Keeping the booster, just losing the 2m line! 
 

New job is amazing.  Long hours and now very little time, hopefully the next few weeks is laxed.  Morgen is doing well too, is now on more money than when she was at Audi, so that's good! :)

 

Need to meet up soon man, hope you and your family are well! <3

How much of your budget do you spend on the car? I can sometimes spend whole payoff on car.

I have a mortgage to pay, etc.  I'm a £1000 in just existing every month, phone, internet, mortgage.  Some goes into savings, most on food and drink.  Maybe a few hundred on the car, if that, every month.  Last few months hasn't had much expenditure.

And also this is not his daily so if the car stands for a while on end in the garage it's not a problem... this is how you do up a show or project car... it's not a daily if it's a daily than you need to plan the modifications well and if you can have them done meaning by the time it's said to be done you can use your car again... but when you do stuff like adam is doing to this one it's best for it to be a car that doesn't need daily use... it also means you can sorn it from tax and depending on where you store it, save on insurance too  (that is if the place you are working in has content insurance, if it doesn't than keep the insurance running) meaning every extra penny you have spare can be put towards the project/show car... until you start using it.

Pretty much the above.  It was my daily driver until we moved house and my commute would have killed it, I was averaging 15/20k a year with shows, daily driving etc.  Not to mention this topic is a proof that I drove it quite hard (what with numerous engines/gearboxes etc).  It was taking it's toll so I thought it would be best to take it off the road and take my time with it.

6R Polo - it's smaller than the Golf one.  I've got a MK5 one sitting but I just feel they're too big, so it's there if someone wants it else it'll get binned.
