You mean the ones on the outside? If so I pushed them by hand they are not super tight but you have to make sure the the caliber is clean and they go in well.

Ah ok thanks! I guess I'll have to do more scraping next time. The corrosion buildup around that area is crazy!

Louis, did you use new seals for the e-brake shafts? If so, where did you source them from?

Thanks, Tony

Yes it is! Thats why I painted the calipers I wanted to see if that would help stop the corrosion.

Thanks for the tip. I ordered rebuild parts for my starter (brush box, bushings, solenoid) and they came from Ireland in less than a week.

Yeah did that last year. Just in time too the brushes most likely only had a couple of weeks left of starts. The coper wire on the brushes was about to touch the router.

Was at my friends garage to bleed the brakes the other day and so happy with what it looks like underneath I had to take some pictures.


Also have finished pictures of the marineco plug for the frost heater the fender isn't painted yet but keeping that for next summer. Although I do have one that is in good shape but I didn't want to put a big hole in it.

Did a wheel alignment last week end used the string method worked well know the steering wheel is nice and straight. Also used metal plates grease and a tiles to make the front wheels turn freely.

Here's one of my little tricks to prepare for winter I always put anti seize and electrical tape over my tie rod and it prevents corrosion. This is after two winters.

Snow was in the forecast so put my brand new Nokian Hakkappelita 8 studded winter tires on can't wait to try them. They are on 15 inch Corrado wheels I got for 100$. Also put some mud flaps in this case it's snow flaps. They are actually cutting boards from Ikea will see how those last.

Need to do the ASR mod. Nothing short of feet of snow will stop that car with studs and ASR .
I have the same same setup on my daughters 03 nb, ASR , studded tires plus I gave her car a 2" lift kit...... Pretty impressive in the snow.

Very nice rebuild, I need to do that to mine, 01 golf 370,xxx miles in snow belt/salt country.

What is the string method?

Thanks for the kind works

Ill have to look in to the ASR mod I don't know what that is. I had taught of a 1 or 2 inch lift but I do like the stock ride hight, but I can just imagine how more impressive it would be for the snow.

The string method of alignning a car basally consist of building a square box around the car so you can take precise mesurement from front to back of there wheel to compare toe in or toe out. There are several ways of doing this some much more precise like on race cars witch are on scales and have marked centre lines on the car as a reference point for the alignment jig to a more crude method like I did.
