[car_restoration] Cti Restoration
Posted 09 June 2012 - 11:40 AM
I intended to get it running for a summer back then and it only needed suspension bushes to get it through it's MOT.
But I've ended up restoring it instead.
Here's my progress so far.

Ebay Bigg Red seal kit.
Looks great buddy. Have you rebuilt the calipers with new seals, where did you get the kits from? What have you done to the brake discs, they look very silver?
The discs look like there painted, I had some genuine pug gti6 discs that were painted
Keep up the good work!
Yeah, The discs were Shot blasted as they weren't that worn but very rusty.
I intended to paint just the middle bit with HT paint , but I figured the pads will ware away the paint.
I'll be watching the discs closely when I bed in the new pads.
I browsed other forums that painted the whole discs and they said it just wares it off.
I've progressed since and have more pics to folow when I get the time!
