good to see you got your pictures sorted bud.
the cars looking good. i quite like the look of that spoiler, dunno if i'd go back to the original one. i agree with you on changing the grill though.
good luck with it, and the door. some knob-jockey tried getting into mine before and ruined all round the lock.

16" shouldn't slow it down they just make the handling crap on the 5. Best wheels on the 5 to get are 15" with 195/45/15 profile tyres which will make preetty much the same size as the standard speedlines with massive tyre wall

I must have a dodgy T25 then..  :lol:  but on the other hand... the tyres I had on there were pants.

Post by: Ash-Lee on 10:11, Sat 02 August 2008
I think 'less' was the key word.  :lol:

I don't really suffer much from wheelspin though, but saying that i rarely shoot off the line at full bore.

hahahaha lol well it is your cra bud hahahaha

what size is those venoms 17's?

what does it handle like?
Title:
Post by: DanielSon-gtt on 13:47, Mon 23 March 2009
do you think it needs to come down do you ..?

theres 16s and it handles ok
the handlings all in the driver i say
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 16:01, Mon 23 March 2009
i would personally bring it down at least 40mm and i bet you see alot of difference in the handling and yeah your rite it is down to the driver but thats just to keep control of it lol

mines like a go-kart you can fling it round every corner and it just sticks like glue probearly the best car i have had (handling wise) :wink:

i would put 15's on aswell as i think on most cars (hot hatches) its the perfect size wheel. but thats me bud  :lol:  :lol:
Title:
Post by: DanielSon-gtt on 19:53, Mon 23 March 2009
yea i want a set of 15s to go on it but im really thinking black multi spokes and cash is a bit short at the moment :cry:
now youv mentioned it i may have to drop it a bit :lol:
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 21:04, Mon 23 March 2009
hahah just a few wise words bud :wink:

yeah i know what ya mean about being strapped for cash lol (the credit crunch an all that lol) but i'm sure you may find a cheap set somewhere just search high and low but remember not to go over what you have to pay for a set always stick to your budget lol :wink:  :wink:

heres a pic with mine on 15's lol and lowered about 90mm (maybe abit more :shock: )

The rear beam will come off but the biggest job I found is releasing the brake line unions. I had to cut mine before I could unscrew them. I'm replacing them anyway as they're all rusted up - just unclipping them made for quite a lot of brake fluid on my garage floor where they'd rusted through in places!
Then it's a matter of releasing the handbrake cables and then the 4 bolts that mount the axle. I originally thought the heads were fixed inside the chassis rails but upon closer inspection they're under the rear seat base. They've got sticky foam stuff on 'em which rips off and are held with a bracket to stop them spinning.
Anyway, unless is rusted up to f%8k like mine, it shouldn't need to come off for lowering. I made a slide hammer up at work years back and that worked fine.
I've taken mine off because the chassis rails are rusted through in places where it mounts.
Does anyone know how to fit new unions on new brake/fuel lines - this is a job I have to do at some point. At the moment it looks as though I'd have to put 'em on, screw 'em in place then bend the pipes into shape after they were on but I'm sure they should be screwed in last! Anyone got any ideas?! :?  :?  :?  :lol:

you need a brake pipe flareing [?] tool
Title:
Post by: Ash-Lee on 17:20, Sat 28 March 2009
Or you could go somewhere that makes brake lines up, they will cut the pipe to the correct size and flair the ends for you. You will probably need to bend them yourself though, make sure you wrap the pipe around something so when you bend it you don't squash it flat.

Post by: 5-Mission on 21:19, Sat 28 March 2009
I suppose my pipes turning with the unions because they're  they're 20yrs old and all rusted up? That's explain it - D'oh!
I forget about flaring - thanks for the advice

Same here, on a 205 GTI. It would squirt oil straight through the middle of the sender!

i bodged the sender for the time being i put some aradite around the top by the terminal to stop the leak seems to have done the job but have a problem with the oil light that i posted in the problem section nobody seems to know about :cry:

Hello mate nice car! In my history there is a recipt for venoms! Is that swade or alcantara you done your interior plasticks? I'm thinking about getting some alcantara for mine.. And use that spray glue?

And the wheels a think it must be alloy filler.. I had a bit scuff on the edge of mine before I got them done and got them back looking brand new!
Title: Re: My Tungsten Gtt few new pics
Post by: DanielSon-gtt on 20:10, Thu 25 February 2010
Cheers mate most of these pics are how it use to look look at my other thread (meguiars clay bar) boosty boy mentioned it's proper alloy filler I may give it ago myself not sure yet
I used suade but spray glue ruins your plastics of you decide like me to rip it off

It was one of the first things on the list to do when I first got the car (2years ago) :lol: i'm in the middle of doin my wheels going to see what a mirrored set of speedys look like on tungy
I've been following your thread your bumpers are looking good I've got a smooth front bumper but I now want strips
how much you paying for a respray
Title: Re: My Tungsten Gtt few new pics
Post by: jayy.cfg on 09:13, Sat 22 May 2010
full outside respray which is staying the same colour is 300+ paint (100ish) i got to get some welding done before hand tho and i said to the guy what i do is take the bodykit off myself and other parts that need spraying so he doesnt miss any parts etc. he is well known around my area in the business i do and people recommend him, but if not then some1 else has said 600 who is also recommend'd
Title: Re: My Tungsten Gtt few new pics
Post by: DanielSon-gtt on 11:54, Sat 22 May 2010
Is that prep work aswell or are you doing your own 400 is a good price is that mates rates or just standard rate for a blow over
Title: Re: My Tungsten Gtt few new pics
Post by: jayy.cfg on 12:08, Sat 22 May 2010
no prep work from me, i jus said i will take off the parts myself so i know it will get done properly. full blow over from a local guy. theres always the old local guys that been doing it for like 20+ yrs that dont over charge for a respray like most known company. all known companies i been to want 1500-2000 if there is min body damage or if its straight prep n respray
