I'm all set to put the brakes on the car now that I got the rear calipers back from Espos Powdercoating, who color matched them to the special order blue that the fronts are. All I have to say is they turned out phenomenally!
Check him out at: http://espospowdercoating.com/

Here are a few pictures of the calipers to show you the quality of his work.






With some help of a few friends, hopefully the brakes, wheel studs, and wheels will be on the car so it can be rolled around, since there's no seats in it. lol

Since I'm unable to take them apart I had a friend take the calipers apart. He's actually going to be re-assembling the rear calipers over the next few days, so I really want to get the brakes on.

Nice, the rears always scared me with the integrated ebrake. I've popped a few fronts apart.

Some S4 brakes I did for my passat:



I have my Front and Rear Brembos to rebuild next. 20 pistons of fun.

Espos Powder coating would have done it, but it was an extra $50/caliper. So I figured I would ask a friend if he could help with the rear calipers.

Looks like you've got quite the project in front of you.

With the help of a friend, the rear bumper was removed from the car in preparation for the new R-Line rear bumper without the exhaust cutout.

Factory bumper.




End result.




To the this






Should look pretty good.

So, what are you doing with the exhaust? Turndown?

Yep, a single turn down on the drivers side.

If you watch the dyno video you can see how much it smokes and they frown upon that at the track

Hopefully with the new Race PD injectors and +120% Firad nozzles and the turn down exhaust, I won't have as much smoke

I'll find out in a month or so.

Smoke = wasted fuel. Hopefully you can get it dialed in. Good luck and keep us posted.

I guess I didn't think of it that way, but yes, that is a fair amount of wasted fuel going out the exhaust

Once I get it on the ground and plates for it, along with the +120% Firad injectors in the car it should hopefully be quite a bit less smokey

With the help of a friend, the rear brake kit from Racing Brake got installed last night and so did the amazing Racing Brake wheel stud conversion kit.

The links to both items, encase you're interested
Rear Brake Kit that works for any MKIV car and I believe a MKI Audi TT
http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece...-Re-p/2172.htm
Wheel Stud Conversion Kit. The reason I went with these over others is that they put a super nice 8mm bolt head on the end of the wheel stud, so you can snug them up :thumbup:
They're 80 mm in length, so they are perfect if you wanna add spacers to your setup, either to clear the calipers or to get that perfect stance.
http://www.racingbrake.com/RB-Wheel-...xl-p/vw-80.htm
Here are the pictures from RB Site on the wheel studs.
The super nice 8mm hex head :thumbup:




You can get either Cone seat or Ball seat lug bolts. Sadly in my case I need both cone and ball seat lug nuts, since the OZ Racing Ultraleggeras are Ball Seat


Pics of the brake install.
Here's how great a job Espos Powdercoating did to match the caliper to the special order Blue without having the front caliper in hand. I think the only reason the rear looks different is the rear is cast, compared to the front caliper that's machined.

On the car with the wheel in place and I might be a little biased, but I think it looks Awesome!


This is how close the fronts would have been.


Actually the drivers side front has the wheel weights rubbing on the calipers, that's how snug it is with those Brembo 6 piston calipers and 355mm rotors.






That's it for today and hopefully the fronts can go on tomorrow.:beer:
