That’s the neatest plastic welding I’ve ever seen mate. :) What did you use to do that?

I got the blanking plugs through by the way, thanks 8)

Do they sit in the same place as the temp ones in the photo buddy and do you have the spec for them J?... and how long did they take to make em?

Ordered some lowered KW rear passat springs for mine to go with H&R shocks ive had for few years ... however ordered them via KW uk themselves over 2 and a half weeks ago and got told yesterday they’ve not left the factory in Germany ... really peeved buddy

Playing with the idea of making some brackets to fit a coil over where the spring sits but i’ll wait for spec on yours first matey
