To this

First thing that was done was replacing all the brakes and disks all round, I went for Pagid All round, so a nice OEM setup again

It started well...

Then the pads...

The disks...

Still can't believe how big the front brakes are compared to the mk4

Next was to remove all the protective stickers it has all over the front end and doors, i know it's expensive and is there for a reason, but it's had it's time and is heavily scratched lol
and the nasty eyelids..

Annoyed it has a slight crack underneath

Next was the paintwork, this is as far as i have got now because of the weather

You can see the protective stickers..

And how scratched the bonnet sticker is...

Cleaned the tips... from this

Yeah they just look so...
Enough inspiration there!!

Wider front arches?

You can just peel and spray again when necessary? A whole repaint for under £300?
In sad respects, i'm having to sell my R

Changes in job have taken place, and hours have been cut, so i need a more reasonable car for now, so a diesel is needed, and i can't afford to keep the R going, as much as i'd like too!

so it's been reverted back to standard

Here's the ebay link chaps

Its a sad day http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1555.l2649
