Needed something to do whilst on lockdown, can’t clean the car anymore and can’t fit the bits I have to it as I am just waiting on one more bit. So I got something to kill the time!! Mkv build no.3

Done this model kit a couple of times myself. It sits way to high! Best trimming the glass bit to fit the chassis/interior before finally putting it together.

Finally got round to getting the wishbones and anti lift kit fitted. The alloy arms really are a lot lighter!! Not had a proper outing yet in it, but seeing as the bushing in wishbone where dead, it already makes a difference. Needed a some new brackets to as the wishbone bolt was seized and ended up cracking that. Which sucked. Couple shots below, plus a few cheeky shots of the beast

Hi. Belated rear brake question having just read your (excellent) build thread. The rear handbrake operates via a line lock. Does this mean that to operate the hand brake you first apply the footbrake and then the handbrake to hold the fluid pressure, and if so , how well does the handbrake work under these circumstances. The other question is about the overall feel and balance of the brakes compared to the o.e system. Sorry for the questions but a brake upgrade is on my list after I have upgraded the suspension .

Andy

yo, thanks man, correct on the rear brake. If you press the foot brake and then pull the hand brake up it makes the lever stiffer but plenty enough to hold it. Once you release the foot brake it allows you to pull the handbrake up further and full lock the brake. Doesnt effect it when you release the handbrake in anyway, My 32 is a DSG so i also have the second back up on the park setting. Fully recommend the Forge brakes, they are a bit pricey but quality is good overall braking performance is solid and responsive.

Thank you . That is helpful. Forge are not the only ones to offer that handbrake system as an alternative to using the o.e caliper and a bracket to allow a larger disc. There are so many brake options out there , it is useful to know what others have done and how effective the outcome is compared to how VW intended.

Gave the car a damn good clean, as I’m heading up to the Forge caffeine and machine event tomorrow. Here is a short vid not sure if it will work.

Silly question, but where did you get the blue silicon coolant hoses you have adorning your engine ?

Mostly Forge motorsport ones but they only do a manual kit and mines a DSG. However addiction motorsport make coolant hoses for the DSG models and he use to sell them individually so sold me the ones I was missing or that where different.
