Cheers both.

8 hours from putting in I popped out to see how things were progressing.

The darkening of the solution is from me agitating the components with a brush. I am sure its possible to avoid the solution getting this dirty by brushing/rinsing the parts in a separate container/stream of water.



Lifted the parts out for a quick look - progressing well!

Some before and afters.

2x coats of Eastwoods Extreme Chassis Primer, x3 Coats of Eastwoods Extreme Chassis Black. x4 M6 12mm Hex Flange Black Stainless bolts to fill the bracket mounts. I'll give this all a coat of Bilt Hamber corrosion protection before fitting.

I love doing this sort of renovation! I was going to electroplate everything gold from a total coverage perspective - but that may be to far! plus Its a process I've yet to try.

I also ordered replacement Stainless Steel Torx Screws for the Caliper Plates.

Looks like the car found the perfect owner, you're doing a great job.
I do miss my MkI TT, I was a member of the TTOC too and on the forum.
I was never keen on the Mk2 nor the Mk3 so switched over from Audi. I'd love to have another drive of mine, it was in great condition when I sold it. You don't see many nice ones on the road anymore.

A couple of bits required before I can fit the Brembo's.

I picked up a set of alternate wheels in the form of a set of BBS RT229 8J x 18 split rims. Made by BBS for/distributed through Austrian Tuning/Styling company MS Design
http://www.ms-design.com/en/about-us...er-werden.html

Pictures here with the Audi centres in place - I hope they will look good on the car!?? - they look like the original QS wheels on steroids!

They seem to have been manufactured in a very limited number - a bit like the RSII but with straight spokes.

Most mk1 owners will agree the engine bay trim panel retaining fastenings (plastic/dowel clips) are rubbish if you regularly fettle/clean around the engine!
Always liked the 42 Draft Designs engine bay trim fastenings with the aluminium dimpled machined washers that compliment the OE TT trim concept, their specific fit sizing and secure rivet fastening.

Managed to get a set and not disappointed with the quality! - however I am not such a fan of the blingy brightness so in order to tone things down and look more OE I've got a local company to anodise all the washers black - but keeping the Stainless M6 bolts for durability.

As supplied:


Thanks to theanodisingco.co.uk in Wigston, Leicester - worth chatting to Andrew if you have similar work (mention the chap with the red TT recommended you).
