Yeah it was a bit worn and had never been changed, £30 for piece of mind isn't worth avoiding.

I want to get a few bits done before Xmas:
front and rear anti roll bars
Super pro anti lift kit
Dog bone mount
new ferodo pads
Hel lines 

then work my way up to stage 2+ after Xmas :evilgrin:

I want to get a few bits done before Xmas:
front and rear anti roll bars

Just a word of warning on the front Anti Roll Bar.

Myself and a friend of mine (who's a mechanic) had a massive ball ache with the front Anti Roll Bar recently.

We were just wanting to change the bushes and not the whole bar. We watched the ECS tuning video YouTube and figured it looked a handy enough job.....

Holy sh*t.....

It was a mare....

We had to drop the subframe completely (rather than just let it down an inch or 2 as per the ECS video). Then we realised the bushes are fixed to the Bar as VW obviously want you to buy the bushes and bar as a single unit. We had to chop the nuts off thr original bar. Etc etc etc

It was painful. We finished up at 5am having started at 5pm....

Anyways.... Just a word of warning. I'm still pretty convinced we must have done something wrong as there is just no way changing the bar, or even just the bushes, should be so hard.

To top it all off my subframe now creaks like a bitch because we obviously "over stretched" the stretch bolts......

(Reading back on this; maybe myself and my friend are just idiots :laugh: :laugh: and you'll get it done easy enough :smiley: :happy2:)

Anybody else on here with an experience of "front anti roll bar ball ache syndrome"?? :rolleye: :rolleye:

Hi All
Back from holiday now, noticed I forgot to upload the mini detail/clean I did the day before I went.

I Gave the car my deep clean/detail:

I always start with the wheels:
Wheels sprayed with bilberry wheel cleaner and agitated with wheel woolies
Wheels deironed/detarred and rinsed down
Wheels only needed a light clay bar running over them
Resealed up with poorboys wheel sealant
Tyres were sprayed with meguiars APC and scrubbed with a stiff brush
Poor boys natural dressing on the tyres

Onto the cars paint:
Rinse with jet wash
Citrus pre wash via pump sprayer
Rinse with jet wash
Snow foam left for around 10 minutes
Rinse with jet wash
2 bucket method wash with dodo juice products
Rinse with jet wash
Air dried the tight areas then pat dried with a mammoth drying towel
Gyeon Iron fallout remover
Rinsed down
Gyeon tar remover
Rinsed down
Clayed the car fine clay and dodo clay lube
Rewashed with dodo juice again
Dried the car again
The paint only needs a very slight detail as theres hardly any swirls in the paint so for now I cheated and used poorboys black hole as I didn’t have the whole day to detail the car with my DA
I sealed the car up with 2 coats of Poorboys Nattys blue paste wax, great stuff and very easy to apply/remove from the paint.
Glass sealed up with CG Jetseal 109 and RainX on the windscreen

Interior was cleaned with meguiars APC and brushed
Wiped down with a very small dialution of IPA to get the last of the sticky of
Dressed with Poorboys natural look dressing
Carpet and seat inserts where wet vaxed and protected with CG fabric guard

I will give the car a full detail at my work unit before the winter comes, this was a few hours work before the car was left for a week on the drive and to tie me over until I get a full free weekend to get the car on axle stands a spend 2 days going over it.

Few snaps a took during the mini detail

Homemade sunshade lol




Few products ready for the washing stages



Citrus prewash stage



Snow foam doing its thing



APC and brushed for the tighter areas



In the buckets




IronX water



After Buffing the wax

Wax applied, cured and buffed off, heres the results :thumbsup:







Car blocked in while im away for a week



Next to the old daily civic



Our 3 cars together, haven’t cleaned the missus car for about 2 monthes …



I didnt dress the exterior rubbers and plastics or the engine bay as i ran out of time and the heat got a bit to much so when I do the winter detail I will give it the full monty 15+ hours treatment. I will upload pictures of that detail when it gets done.
