It looks good to me and those rear turrets are in great condition compared to most I have seen.

Looking good, as Eric says very impressive turrets!
Always dodgy plugging a sunroof, can be quite easy to warp the roof (i've seen it happen), but looks pretty good from the pic. he must be pretty good to seam the outside, I think if I had my sunroof out i'd chicken out and seam weld from the inside and fill the outer.
Will the Hi-Spec calipers fit a 15" wheel?

Thanks Chaps
Yes only had 2 small plates to put in turrets.
The roof did warp a little in the end, hence the comments about filler.

The HiSpec ones I have are fitted to the HPE are with 15 inch alloys, but got 17s for this car.

Marcus

The Hi Spec build I am doing with the R132-4 Calliper (bigger and stiffer than the B4) will be going under my 15 inch Azev As. I might finally have the mounts next week for both the Beta and the Monte

Little update, things progressing, main body ready for paint, its been primed and flattened off aswell as can be. Interior painted but a few more coats required. Body prep being done by JC Auto Designs. He also doing rear wheel arch repairs on my S3 Berlina.

Well its been slow going, not had much time to work on car recently. JC has been working on car more than I,
I did purchase a rotisserie so we could work on underneath better, scrapping under seal and wax oi off the bottom , yuk!!!!!
Still finding areas we need to get the welder out for, under the sealant coatings.

One thing we have noticed that these later cars are not so well made, panel gaps are cavernous compared to my earlier cars Ive had.

Most components have been re-plated, or blasted and powder coated.
