Re: Project sharkbait

Haha don't worry now there is more space I'm sure we could get more in lol

The plan now is to order the cage get that welded in and the floor welded then get the shell painted it's original imola blue including the cage or get the cage painted the same orange as the strips on the bumpers

Mine was very tired and when i tried to take it off (to stiffen with tiger seal anyway), all the bolts snapped. Ended up having to just refurb the old mount with the aid of a dremel, paint, new bolts and tiger seal.

If you're going for all new mounts, i recommend firing up google translate and going on to Unto.pl. Postage is of course the big barrier BUT if you're ordering a few things, they tend to work out a lot cheaper because the cost of the items themselves are so much cheaper. For example i ordered a lot of things i couldn't get in the UK for the conversion, like new hoses, sensors, magnetti marelli leads and the likes and the entire order plus postage came in at £10 less than the cheapest i could get a decent aftermarket set of leads in the UK.

From memory of the translate, any sort of connector is translated as a tendon, and mounts are translated as pillows :lol: :laugh:
If you are needing mounts redone, give me a shout, I have a mate who can custom poly bush mounts. We did one on the polo as a test, it's passed with flying colours, and speaking of colours, he can do a range of different ones. As for price, I'm not sure but can give you his number (if he agrees) and yous can sort that out between yous.

Re: Project sharkbait

He needs an old one to make a mould of, but the new 'rubber' is mental strong, and funky colours too

Re: Project sharkbait

Well I took the dash out the cento what an absolute pain in the backside it was what Italian designer thought it was a great idea to attach the wiring loom too the heater tubes and then make the wires so short you can't get a screwdriver in there too undo the world's smallest screws lots of swearing and cuts later though it's out and hopefully not going back in haha
