My F WEG Tungy
« on: 18:17, Tue 21 June 2011 »
As I enjoy looking at the other posts of people car's I thought I start one for my R5 as well :D

I've done a fair bit since buying back in Jan 2011, mostly fixing, few add ons changing bits around etc as most of the mods were done by previous owners but any stuff i do i'll stick on here...

When I purchased it looked like this:

on the deck!





Pics taken a week ago.





since buying i've raised the front end about 50mm and the back 30mm to get some travel back in the shocks, fixed lots of faulty electronics and done a load of other stuff, i'll list all this next...

Spent a bit of time on the weekend cleaning up the body work, wash, wax, wheel shine and and good going over with some touch up paint. It's amazing how many chips you find when you start looking...

anyway, shines up quite nice so here are some pictures :D

When it rains my sunroof leaks and the passenger seat gets wet and the floor underneath sometime is wet too, I thought this was water leaking through the seat and onto the floor.

With all the heavy rain we had last week I started putting a bin liner on the passenger seat to catch the water. Every day I would poor the water off and so had a dry seat, then I notice the floor under the seat was proper soaking. ahh! I have a leak somewhere else....

so i completely stripped the interior on a leak finding mission and also see if I have any rust I should be worried about...

mid strip out


rust under the passenger side sill


thankfully no major rust in the pans just some surface where the water had been sitting for a bit





Found the leak, i knew about the rusty boot, but didn't know water was running down the plastic cover, dripping onto the boot floor running in the ripple under the carpet, under the back seat and down into the foot well  :shock:


I stuck the drivers seat back in and went for a spin, the weight saving must take at least half a second off the 0-60! :lol:

Very smart!  8)

My (and i assume almost eveyone elses) rear cards have sagged and look terrible. Where did you get the material from?

Check the surface rust in your floor pan, mine looked like that only when i cleaned it back i was left with lots of little pin holes.  :(  Have a nosey at my thread, mind you those pin holes were the least of my worrys.  :lol:

The material is speaker cabinet cloth that you can get on ebay for about 4 a meter. I used it to cover a few subwoofers for my old sound system and also to do bass boxes for cars, so thought I'd give it a go on the cards.

The material is a bit thick and takes a bit of work to cover the cards as they are a tricky shape, but they came out really well and it only cost about 25 in total to do!  (2m of cloth, can of spray glue, wallpaper roller, sharpe knife, scissors)

I'll check the rust when I sand it back, hopefully I don't fall through the floor :lol:
