nutter is on a distinguished road
Default First Drive

Now the IVA is done and the kit is road legal ive been out for many a first drive.
Ive come to see that just because its road legal doesn't make it road worthy!!

My rear tyres have been hitting the inside of the wheel arches, when under load. So Ive had to take the car off the road until I get this fixed.
Im running 15" rims so its not as if they are over sized in any way.

Given that I already modifed my rear archers myself I have had to modify them again.
It looks like the rear arches uprade from Marlin is a must for new build around VAG system.
Ive spent the last few days fiberglass some extensions in. There is still some work to do, filler + gel coat + polish, but the basic shape is there, and coupled with spring upgrade, it looks like the rear arches are fixed.

As usual pictures of the destruction in my build diary.

Now to fix the fronts............
