    ...and so it begins.

    Project BLACK - new images, page 6 Black_10

    Potential new 16" wheels on the horizon...

    Need to de-crystal it... getting rid of the headlights, fogs and indicators. Already dumped the crystal rears in favour of some temporary VR rear units.

    Drives well, few niggling things need sorting, but I'm very happy with it... it's bloody clean and in really good condition. I've got to remember this is just my daily though... so I can't go throwing money at it! Need to concentrate on the Jetta...

    The only 'real' mod I'd like to do to it is an early Vento front end.

    I actually wanted a Silver one and found a few, but this was so clean I couldn't turn it down.

    Driving back from Wakefield on Sunday I got an average of 45mpg (according to the MFA)... so not that worried now!

    Yeah... the Comps would have looked really nice.

    The Pepperpots are only a temporary measure... took them with me to bring it back on. I have my sights on a set of 16's... they belong to the Jetta. Far too small for the Mk3... tyres are TINY! And you're right, they need some spacing!

    It's been dropped (can't get the jack under the sills already), but it's very bouncy out back... think the shocks are on their way out, so maybe a set of coilies will be on soon.

    But that's it... coilies and rims. Nothing else... okay, well maybe a Vento front end sometime... lol

    Liking it.

    Coilovers ordered and paid for... Embarassed

    Another 165 Ebay special. Result. Same as the ones that are on the Jetta and Jez's motor... so should be okay.

    Rims are 'in progress'... Wink

    Headlights sorted (I hop) - swap for some standard VR units.

    Matt flat grey 16" BBS RXll's going on with Continental Sport Contact 2's - though not for a few weeks. I've taken my Cream BBS's to CJ Powdercoatings in Grimsby for them to strip the ones in the photo below and re-coat them. Should be back this time next week, then I have to re-build them and put my tyres on them.

    Project BLACK - new images, page 6 Creamsplitkz0

    Coilies are on there way... all new top mounts have arrived, along with a new metal coolant pipe that's dribbling water.

    Will have a hunt at Inters for a few other things... but it'll all be looking different in a few weeks.

    New pressed metal plates arrived to day as well.

    Looks different to this already!

    Yeah, I'll be in it tomorrow.

    Nothing done to it, so you'll have to forgive the chav front lights, funny ride height and wierd stance on the pepperpots.

    Apart from that, it's okay.

    Need to pick your Mk3 8v brain tomorrow Jez. Few things niggling at me.
