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.

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).

Fantastic thread mate, my sort of build/mods.

I love the attention to detail on this one! Similar to my R36, it was an already well loved car with a few minor bits needed to get it up to scratch.

Always will be a fan of the OEM+ route when it comes to modding! Only those in the the know, know.

That Eastwood chassis paint is brilliant. I've got the primer also.

I've done both my sub frames with it and they look great and it's really durable too...

Nice attention to detail and a nice clean low mileage example, the OEMness of the vehicle is being kept pure too which I like.
