Re: slammed 57

I just mention how much mileage she has on her audi between shop visits. haha.
i had to do the turbo downpipe. it's an older TT quatro set up, so all wheel drive. the pipes wrap around the driveline and it's reall hard to even see the turbo pipe bolts let alone access them. 11 hrs in the labour guide to change it. she usually changes the subject about that time herself. haha.

Re: slammed 57

Installed the electric parking brake today, I searched the forums to see how everyone was mounting the actuator but couldn't find any pictures on how everyone was doing so, So hers a pic if anyone needed for the future. I made a bracket for it to sit into and mount to the frame and put a clamp on the front to stabilize it. works really well, thanks bam55 for the idea and help you gave me.

Re: slammed 57

Got the new seat a few weeks ago, made a frame and epoxied for it to sit on and secure it to the floor. Now it’s time to install the shoulder seat belts.

Nice. I'm interested in seeing how you do your seatbelts with the big back window.
