Ok, so where were we? Oh yes.... 5 weeks ago this happened...
I don't think he liked it much because he gave me a few nasty bites!
But in the end I got my prize!
So I sent them off to be hydro dipped... a couple weeks later I was told they were ready, so headed off 40 miles to go and collect them, only to find the lacquer was full of runs! So I asked for them to redo them. That was nearly 2 weeks ago.... so I'm not overly happy at the moment! I'm hoping to take him to Audis In The Park in a couple weeks and I shall be very angry if he's not ready for that!
Oh, and if anyone is thinking of taking the grill off their S1.... don't! It was a really nasty job! Almost impossible to get it off without breaking something along the line.
I really hope it does too! I'm going to email the people with the grill etc today to find out when I can expect to get them back. I had to reinsure my Beetle yesterday as the insurance ran out and I thought I'd be using the S1 for a while. I've got 1 existing claim on my policy which will be removed on the 27th of this month so I was hoping to have used the S1 for a few weeks and then reinsure the Bug after the 27th. When I dropped the parts off on 30th June I never dreamed that I'd still be waiting for them on 1st August!
