I'm loving this build deano so well written not an easy thing to do... quick question the wheel spacers where did you get them and how much were they.
Cheers

Thanks  it’s much appreciated ...Here’s the link to the spacers ...These spacers are great hub-centric and come with all the bolts needed... Same build quality as H&R

Are the side skirts bonded on or just bolts/screws and clips?

The side skirts are on a rail system and screwed underneath ...vw also use trim tape on them ,,

Another small update......
« Reply #50 on: May 08, 2019, 11:40:58 PM »
Another update ......This  time in the shape of a WG MOTORPARTS short shift linkage. The item came really quick on a next day delivery. Which was great . As for the shift linkage itself I was really impressed at the build quality please bear in mind it’s half the price of a forge/Ecs/APR short shift and does exactly the same job and fully adjustable.

This time I decided not to remove the battery for fitting and you don’t have to. The jobs simple and only took 10 mins to fit ..but what a massive improvement with a 40% reduction in throw.
